Integrating logins between bbPress and other app

  • _ck_ wrote a bit here about the four routines you need to replace to get authentication with an outside user system working:

    Would you combine both user tables into a single system, and have them both authenticate through bbPress? Or only use your existing user system for login, and allow signed in users to use your bbPress app?



    Hi, thanks for the reply.

    I plan to use the existing system for login, and then allow those users to view and post on the forum. This means I’ll need to keep up two user tables, one for each system, right? That’s not so bad as long as I can keep them synchronized.

    So considering that, should the login/logout/register logic be stored in a bbPress plugin? (Is that possible?) Or should I just load bbPress inside the other app and call bb_login(), etc. from there?

    Also, I’ll look into the plugins _ck_ recommended. Thanks!

    How will you handle namespace collisions between the two systems… i.e. if there is an “andrew” account in both user tables?
