I have a problem, if user tries to access the jforum directly without logging in then system should intercept, check if the session is active, if not then divert him/her to a login page, but mine isn't working that way, please help!!!
my cookie stores the username and if anyone is registered to my application and logs in then when he/she clicks on the forum link on my application it will check for the cookie and the username with the applications database and flys to jforum if the username doesn't exist the jforum is creating it its all fine
but now the problem is if the user is not loged in my application and bookmarks any page of the forum when he/she clicks on the bookmark it redirects directly to the forum desired page as an Anonymous user if he/she is not logged in right???, but i want it to check if the user is logged in to my application first (checking for the cookie and then checking the username from the cookie with the database) if the user is signed in then should display the desired page but if not it must be redirected to the login page.
please anyone help me with this i will be very grateful.

this is my global configuration file
this is how i create the cookie
please help thank you so much great forum!!! [originally posted on jforum.net by zzaamine]
