I have now decided to go back to my old user system, which has been around for years. It was originally an MDB/ASP based solution which morphed into a MySQL/ASP solution which now is in the process of morphing into a MySQL/PHP solution. I’m currently laying out the rough plumbing for it. The eventual goal is to make all of the pages able to be logged in.
For facebook apps, I’m going to find a way to shunt facebook users into the system, rather than do this the other way around.
So far I’ve constructed and tested my little helper functions for sending emails and connecting to and querying the backend. Soon this will grow into a set of php functions for dealing with users.
Which means I need to get the rest of the HTML pages on the site converted over to PHP.
The plumbing stuff is just so time consuming.
