pass xoops authentication to other apps in a URL?
I have two projects on the go, one that has external scripts accessing dbs other than XOOPS and a dotproject site that would be nice to integrate with xoops.
I took some standalone php scripts and put them in a content module and that worked nicely. The scripts access dbs othan than the local XOOPS db. I'm now looking at ways to either modulerize the scripts or at least pass XOOPS credentials to the scripts. The content module controls access to the scripts but I'll want to go deeper.
I found a way (untested so far) to grab xoopsUser data that i can use in my scripts. That should work for scripts located on the same server.
Is there an easy way to pass the current user credentials (name and password) to an external site URL? I can easily link the site from XOOPS but I'd want to save a login if I can.
BTW, if anyone is looking at dotproject (www.dotproject.net
) integration I'm interested. They have a nuke version but so far nobody is doing a XOOPS version.
no max no bling. goes double for mik. triple for the insane aliases of said lunatics
Not around here anymore. Way too many idiots, so sad.
