Using MediaWiki user database to log in?
I was wondering if it’s possible to bypass the bbPress login/registration and just authorize users based on the usertable I have in my MediaWiki installation. I’ve been able to do this with phpBB and vBulletin, so I guess there should be a way to do this for bbPress, right?
Where would I start doing this? As far as I could see there’s no existing plugin for this. I see there’s an LDAP plugin though, so I could take that one and try to rewrite it to use a regular mysql database. Or are there better ways to achieve this?
NOTE: There are some plugins that let MediaWiki use your WordPress/bbPress database. What I’m looking for goes the other way round. I have MediaWiki, and I want bbPress to auth against it.
