  • vB "user" table questions.

    Please Delete

    I’m developing an administrator backend system for a website. I would like to incorporate the excellent vB into this system to allow admins to post messages and communicate with each other privately. Now the problem I have is that I already use a table which holds usernames / passwords and the vB has the “user” table which basically does the same thing. I would like to extend the use of the “user” table to cover data storage of my system so that the usernames / passwords are universal.

    So I guess what I need to know is…

    1) Can I add new fields to the “user” table without causing the vB to screw up!!!

    2) Can I simply add and delete records (users) from the “user” table as I like or do I have to add, delete, or alter any linked records in other tables?

    If anyone else has done any work along a similar line I would be very interested to here from you. Any help you can provide with this will be greatly appreciated.
