    Currently Works:

    • when you login in Joomla with Remember Me option checked, you will be logged in both Joomla and WBB (cookies)
    • when you login in Joomla, th WBB user is being imported to Joomla


    Currently NOT working:

    • no SESSION support for WBB
    • when you logout in Joomla, if remembered me option was checked, you will still remain logged-in in WBB (remove cookie)


    To do:

    • clean up wbb3auth.php (move codes to wbb3user.php)
    • create wbb3user plugin to handle sessions, cookies and login&logout


    ----------------------------------
    Probably I can't finish the code by myself and will require some help or someone to take this over and extend the functionality so feel free to download and modify
