This class allows you to integrate your own login system with phpBB forum system. Meaning that you can have one login valid across both your Web site and phpBB.

The class lets your site create a phpBB login session to be associate with the same user that has logged in a existing login system of your site.

To take full advantage of this PHPBB_Login class you just need to modify your own login system to include a call to the class functions to login or logout a given user.

The way this class works is reliant on the Web site username being exactly the same as the phpBB username. To insure this, it is recommended to disable the ability to change usernames from within the phpBB admin control panel.

phpBB is a very popular forum system among the PHP community. Many developers have integrated it as part of their own sites.

Since phpBB has its own user management system and many sites that want to integrate it also have their own user management system, a solution for integrating both systems is often necessary.

The approach of this class to solve that problem is to artificially initiate a login session when the user has successfully authenticated in the login system that the site already had.

This way the users only have to authenticate once to use either the pages of the site or the pages of the phpBB system that require authentication.
