Using wordpress cookies/sessions/authentication (2 posts)

    I would like to use wordpress' user authentication on external non-wordpress pages.

    More specifically:
    I have a non-wordpress page that shows everyone a standard page. If a user has logged into wordpress and then visits the same page, special information is displayed.

    How would I go about doing the authentication checking? Which cookies do I need to check against which databases with which encryption?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    there's some good documentation on this at:
    the bbpress site
    as well as at:
    the wp codex
