  • Password Function?


    I am thinking of developing a system in which a site shares the same user database as vBulletin. Is there a function somewhere in the vB code base that checks if a password matches what is in the database for that user? If so, what file is it in and which function is it?

    I'm probably going to purchase vB no matter what response is sent. =)

    Integrating vBulletin with a non-vB member system would require a rather extensive modification of the code. Of course, we cannot provide official support for code modifications. What most people do is modify their current system to use the vB member system.

    Either way the place for help with this would be over at the mod site:

      I actually just found a post depper down that explains vB's method of password hashing -- md5(md5(password) salt); -- so then I can figure out a means of building the member system around vB (instead of the other way around).

      Thanks so much for the reply! =)
