No additional login is required?
I have a website with a 'Members' area and login.
Within that Members area I would like to put a forum but do not want the 'Member' to have to login again. Once they have loged in to the members area they should automatically have access to the forum.
Is this possible?
wpForo users system is based on the WordPress user system. All forum users are the same WordPress users. There is no forum specific user in WP/wpForo website. When you login or register in the WordPress, you automatically login or register in the forum too. So when you register or login by using the 'Members' area you mentioned above and it creates (register/login) users in Wordpress too, that means that the user exists in the forum too. Thus there is no necessary to login or register in the forum again.
Many thanks for such a prompt response, I shall now have a go at installing it lol. I'm just a few brain cells away from a ludite, but i shall not give in.....
