Hiya
i have a website we are building in php that has a member login area. This is for them to upload content (videos etc). If they have logged into this part of the site we need them to be logged into the forum. WE need one central login. Is this possible with Phorum?

Yes, this is perfectly possible. You need a Phorum module to let Phorum inherit your main systems authenticated users.

You can take a look at the External Authentication module or fully write your own module by learning about the "user_session_restore" hook (a search on these forums should bring up some talk about that).
