Can I use my existing user DB?
« on: February 21, 2012, 10:40:36 PM »
I have a site that already requires a login and profile creation.  Are there any docs that show how to integrate an existing DB for registration/login? I want to keep it as simple as possible for my users by allowing them to post after they've registered via my site.

Thanks,
-Paul

I can populate the smf_members table but whats the easiest way not to require a login? Is there a session variable I can set with my current user login?

[README] SSI FAQ's

You might also visit the Portals, Bridges, and Integrations board as there is quite a bit of information there.
