I have some questions regarding the login. Today my site is running without a CMS and I'm thinking of using Orchard. I have already started to integrate my Website into Orchard. I have created a new module (“MySite”) and started to build views and controllers. Everything works fine. But now I have a problem how the members should login to the members section in my website. I have my database from the “old” Website separated from the Orchard database. All my “webusers” is in the website database and not in the Orchard database. My first thought was not to use the Orchard login but now I’m wondering if that is even possible? Is there someone who has solved this? I can't be the first one who wants to do this :) (One logon for the CMS and one logon for the website’s member section)

I'm a little confused about what exactly you're trying to do. Also, what happens when you try?
