  • Which file stores the location of where the username and password of users is stored? I want to change that sop that when users register for either my blog or forum they also get a username and password for the other.

    All the other data will still be stored in the WordPress and Forum tables but I just want to reference usernames and password in the one table.

    If you don’t understand please post so I can clarify for you.

  • 1. I am afraid you don’t understand how WP works.

    Nothing is stored in “files”. All your content and settings are stored in the database.

    2. For integrating the WP userbase with a forum’s users… search for keywords like “integrating users” or “integrating WP and ABC forum” etc.

    I’m talking about the files where data is inserted into the database, and it has the SQL commands of “INSERT INTO table_name VALUES (value1, value2, value3, …)”

    I want to change the SQL commands relating to the username and password, and also the one where verification takes place when logging in.

    User data is kept in the users and usermeta tables of your database.

    Consider using something like http://www.wingrep.com/ to search your WordPress scripts for INSERT commands.

    Also look at wpadmin/upgrade-schema.php for more schema info.
