  • Best way to link with existing user database?

    I'm trying to start a new website in 2009 where the users won't need any sort of "username" but just signup with an email.

    This creates a problem for vBulletin where, first off, they shouldn't have to register twice, but they don't have a username setup.

    What can be done to make it so that they can just choose a nickname/username (that is unique) and immediately become a forum member? We'll already have them registered elsewhere... but those email addresses and passwords are also already stored elsewhere so it'd need to sync and stuff.

    I'm sure this must come-up as an issue all of the time... is there a solution or what?

    It does, yet vBulletin cannot interface with any other existing user management system. Hopefully something being addressed for vBulletin 4.
