Gossamer Community provides you with a core user database for all of your Gossamer Threads scripts. Community integrates the user-based services your website provides, providing your visitors with a much more streamlined and convenient online experience.
Your users can check their webmail at your site, post a message on your forums, and shop the online catalog you've created with DBMan SQL, all without having to login multiple times.
Gossamer Community provides a single point of authentication for all your Gossamer applications, thus enabling an integrated login system where users only have to login once to access multiple applications.
There is no theoretical limit as to the number of applications Gossamer Community can support, third party applications, with some custom code, can be modified to hook into the Community database to authenticate users.
