    Hi am new at WoldPress, I set up the blog so only members can comment. My problem is how to add my old members (from members table) to wp_users?
    Or during authentication check also if it's register member on my table to give them access too. I don't want to ask people to register again through WoldPress. Any help will be appreciated, thank you.

    Thanks a lot Shane for your answer,
    Anybody who register using WoldPress can loggin, my problem is my old members from a different table before i have the blog. How can I link my table members to wp_users, or when WP is checking the username and password to go also check on my old members table so I don't ask people to re register again using WP ?

    Hi thanks Shane,
    I discover that i can use this plugin
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/external-database-authentication/
    for external db authentication. so he can go and look through my own db. I install and specify everything but now i can't login no more. The login page give a empty page. I don't know if someone know where is the problem?

    Thanks
