So my forums are at /home/user/public_html/forums/ and my toplist site is at /home/user/public_html/rsps/

I have recently switched from SMF 2.0 to IPB 4.x and my toplist functioned off SSI from smf like so


This method was AMAZING, and seemless
I need to be able to do that in IPB, its simply not an option for me to build the application within ipb for reasons i wont specify

I've tried using Kohana and it seems to be outdated or just doesnt work...

i try using

$member = \IPS\Member::loggedIn(); 
(or something like that) and it throws "Class IPS\Member not found" or some nonsense so obviously i can't access that from outside of a running IPB instance..

Anyone know an alternative to SSI from SMF2.0 in IPB 4.x?

I have asked in the discord and keep getting pointed towards like docs of already existing API that works only for IPB instances... this is not what i need... I NEEED to be able to grab info of the currently logged in user WITHOUT logging the user in or authenticating with a username

EDIT: I ended up remaking my seperate site as a page within my forums... giving me access to the information i needed, but at the same time took out the need for accessing the information.
