Sharing phpBB Session with the rest of my stie

Post by GlovesQ »

Not sure if this is the right area to post this request.
How can I use the phpBB login session for the rest of my site?

Example:
User logs into the phpBB form. Then I can use the same user name to run various php scripts outside of the phpBB forum but on the same website.

Theory:
User logs into my site, manages their falcon's stats. Then can go post falconry related topics with the same user name/password. http://www.raptortracker.net

This is the closest topic I found: viewtopic.php?p=3382184#p3382184

Thanks for the help

Here's a tutorial in which the exercise is to display phpbb content on external pages. Now, I understand that you don't necessarily intend to do that, however, the basic steps of supporting the phpbb session management is what you need, and is demonstrated in the examples given. Hope this helps.
