It would be more easy to post comments to articles with forum's account without the need to write your name and email all the time.

I absolutely agree, and that's something I'm working on... will be ready soon.

I've finally enabled this... now if you are logged into the forum, you are logged in everywhere - forums, main site, and the blogs.

So far it's working pretty well, I think.

Took me quite a while to figure out a good way to do it... I ended up hacking the wordpress internal API to check both databases and switch the API to use the other database if the user was from the forum.

I should note that all comments still go through the normal moderation system, which is currently set to moderate all comments.

I'm working on fixing the system so that people with more than one comment can post without moderation, but I'm worried about people trying to manually spam after posting a few comments legitimately, which has happened a few times.
