we're using 2.7 on a site - we now have a need to create a user system to uniquely identify a user for some non WP related content entry pages.
But since we already require users to register in WP, it just seems dumb to re-create the wheel.
What I'm looking for is any/all info on how to harness the WP user login system for use in PHP to store data in other data tables.
I've found lots of info on using the same user table on multiple blogs and such.
Please let me know if you are aware of any info on doing this.
