Auth_vBulletin and sessions?
I'm using the Auth_vBulletin plugin for user authentication on a Links site.

I am assuming that the Sessions table within Links is not used once the plugin is installed, as logged in users are determined by checking the vBulletin cookie.

I am interested in modifying this plugin so that the Sessions table maintains a list of logged in users. One of the weaknesses of the current system is once a user moves from the forums to the Links site they are not listed in the online users on the forum. It would be great to be able to determine the number of logged in users that are currently in the Links site (from within Links, and from vBulletin via a plugin).

For anyone that knows this plugin well (probably only Adrian Wink) - would I create any major problems anywhere if I added some code in sub auth_create_session to insert data into the Sessions table?

I have no idea how the Sessions table is cleaned out, mine has 2 entries in it that seem to have been there since installing the plugin Unsure.
