Careful, talk of non-ldap integration will get people excited!
There are three ways of using toolkits (without doing any modifications)
2) Integrated single sign on - look at integration.txt in the root
3) No passwords - as used in the localhost version
All of the authentication takes place in
The key function is valid_login, which takes a password and a username
from the posted values from index.php (the home page).
You would also need to look at password play, which users the
password_check function in login_library.php.
The only other thing to note would be the session is populated by
details that come from the login_details table and also that the LDAP
result at present sets up a lot of the $_SESSION variables.
I don't think it would be much work, and it was discussed a bit
yesterday (off list) but it just presents a bit of a mare for us to code

Subject: [Xerte] Authentication
Are there any alternatives to LDAP authentication?
Is it possible to have for example email registration, or just create a
database of user accounts?
If this feature does not yet exsit, where which files would I need to
edit to create it?
For example, if I wanted to write a new auth method, where would I
change the function / method call?
