I have a vBulletin forum in place in one site (dedicated exclusively to the forum), and another site, in a different domain, but in the same server as the one with the forum.
I need to be able to, in the site without the forum, allow the user to login (authenticating against the forum's Users Database), and if he's not registered in the forum, allow him to register there, and then get redirected back to my site.
The idea is to make the two sites have the same User database.
I'm looking for a coder with experience in modifying a vBulletin forum to help me do this.
I'm a coder myself, with a lot of experience and coding knowledge. You won't need to code the full solution, you'll need to advice me as to the best way to achieve this, and modify the necessary vBulletin files.
The part of the coding that involves doing something with the login in the site without the forum will be up to me, you'll need to help me to the point where in this site I can determine whether the user is logged on or not, and what his username is (plus the redirection to login/register, and back, of course)
Please, only people with experience in modiying VBulletin need apply, thanks!
