Bug Description

wishlist:

It would be great if the authentication were to happen first and saved in a cookie for a couple of reasons:
1. Users would not have to supply this information every time they post something
2. If there is any forum security (like hidden forums plugin) then users would be granted access to the forums that they have rights to see

There already exists the username and password cookies that are set when someone posts something.

I'm pretty sure that bbpress mobile doesn't use these cookies for reading (I doubt that).

That last bit of my comment made no sense. it could be that it doesn't use the cookies for reading, but I doubt that.

I just ran through some tests... even after succesfully posting (with username and password) when I try to post again, it asks me again for username and password.

Also, the list of forums are still limited to what only the "public" can see.

I send through that username and password in every xmlrpc request. The username and password are saved into cookies, and the cookies are what is read to get the username and password.

I know that the private forums plugin blocks the topics and posts being read but that is probably the plugin not exposing them to the xmlrpc interface.
