    Hey @vynnus,

    From what I’ve read briefly, wpforo is just a plugin but it is installed on a normal WordPress install.

    For this reason, I am assuming that you have a WordPress site with this plugin already installed. You are now creating another WordPress site which you want to be able to login to using the users stored in the first (using External Login to do so).

    Assuming this is the case, although I’ve never used it, multi-site may be a better option for you. If however, you’ve already disregarded this as not working for what you want to do this plugin may help you.

    In this situation you will not need any additional code in your functions.php file. You will just need to use the phpass option for your hashing algorithm and setup the rest of the plugin settings.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Hey @vynnus,

    Haven’t heard back from you for a while so I’m going to assume this is resolved.

    If not, don’t hesitate to get back in contact and we’ll see what we can do 🙂

    Thanks,

    Tom 🙂

    hi @tbenyon ,

    my case is:

    I have a non wordpress web app where all users are registered (e-mail and passwd).
    This web app runs on a subdomain.
    Users data are all saved into a mssql db.

    And then I have a wordpress website running on main domain.
    I have the wpforo plugin installed on this website.
    So I need those users to login into wpforo. That’s it.

    But I just read wordpress requires the users to be registered also on wordpress database.

    So although it sounds simple to explain it looks harder to deploy.

    Anyways, thank you for your help.

    Hey @vynnus,

    Having the users registered as a duplicate in the WordPress database is exactly how this plugin works for that very reason. If the user changes in the external database, next time they login, we update that users details in WordPress.

    It is likely you won’t need any code in your functions.php file and you can set this all up from the plugins settings page.

    Just put in the details to be able to connect to the custom mssql database that the subdomain uses.

    If you have any further questions, let me know.

    Thanks,

    Tom 🙂
