hello everyone,

I've got a PageTemplate that includes a big Flash application. For usability i need to offer a login INSIDE this application which means, I need to send the user input via HTTP_RAW_POST_DATA (or whatever else) to php.

And then? I found some "Customized LoginForms",but I don't need a form, but a function. Anyone a simple solution? (it doesnt have to be super-secure)

greetings. goodju

Have a look at Security::authenticate($email, $password) I'm pretty sure if you can query that function you can bypass the default authenticator classes etc
