OK, this is more sensible now, but why do you need your own
plugin for this? Standard CookieAuthHelper and ZODBUserManager
plugins are not enough for your use case?

Seems that your problem (that you start like a Member
but after clicking somewhere else you're unauthenticated) is
because of code in extract credentials.
What happens there? Credentials are extracted from request.
So, if you have __ac_name  and __ac_password in the request you're
authentictated. When you're visiting another url, there is no __ac_name
and __ac_password in request anymore, so you become unauthenticated.
Right? So you have to store somewhere information about sucessful login.
Solution might be the code I've sent you in previous mail.
After authentication with __ac_name and __ac_password from
the request it stores data in session. Then, on another pages
session is checked for credentials and... you should be still
authenticated. Another solution is to just use CookieAuthHelper
which stores data in cookies.

This is first part. You have credentials. Second thing is to
compare them with users stored in ZODB (that what ZODBUserManager
is doing...)
