Hi,

We are using silverstripe as a CMS and the core product is separate but both on same domain. So all session management is doing by other product using PHP native sessions.

What i want is to access the session variable in Silverstripe to show whether the use is logged in or not.

$username = $_SESSION['username'].

Thanks for reply.

Both SS and other website lie on same domain. I have started the session in other website. Now what i want is to get the session value by $_SESSION in SS. Can i?

What this code do, does Member::currentUser() access the current session or what?

if ($member = Member::currentUser()) {
return $member->FirstName;
}

Simple answer - read it - it is open source.
But yes it does.

>>Can i?

yes
$_SESSION['loggedInAs']

not hard to see if you just do

print_r($_SESSION);
