Is there a way to force wordpress to use outside authetication for users? I already have a mysql_database which contains all the user/password information for a few other services I offer.
I would like to force registration to post on my site, howerver, I don't want wordpress to maintain it's seperate user/pass list. I want to use a common database.
I guess, one option would be to infact convert my exisiting user/password database into the wordpress user's table, and change all my existing software to use the wordpress user table, but I'm looking for a better alternate.
