I noticed how several websites are able to identify the user on the basis of his logon status on the phpbb2 forum; my website also has a phpbb2 board, and I am interested in recognizing the users in other areas of the site when they have logged in the forum.

The problem is, I am unaware of how phpbb2 do the job - I know the theory of the cookie with a randomly generated session-id (created after login) which is used for the duration of the session, but I didn't try so hard to search the phpbb2 code in order to understand how this is practically done.

So, is there some kind of public resource where you learned how to do this, or I just have to go through all of the phpbb2 code?
