I have an odd user management scenario I want to ask for opinions on.
The main function of my site is a web forum. This is the only section of the site a user needs to log in to.
I am building a new section for continuing education and would prefer not to have a separate log in for this section.
I am able to read the cookie from the forum to validate the user. I then want to store info about that user and their continuing education info in a different database.
I was hoping to set a new client variable in the database, but I am on a shared account, and my host won’t enable this.
Can someone suggest a way to use the cookie the forum has set to determine if the user is logged in, and then let them use the continuing education system?
Ideally they will remain logged in to the continuing education session even if the browser is closed and reopened if the forum cookie is still active.
Are they all part of the same application? In otherwords, do they have the same application name in Application.cfc or do they even use the same Application.cfc? If so, then they are the same application and you can use the same session data and do *exactly* the same thing to authenticate and authorize the user.
Thank you for replying.
No, they are not part of the same application.
The forum is a vBeulltin fr that uses php, I am writing the con ed section in CF.
