Well, I took a look here:http://www.minibb.com/synchronizing_minibb.html
and see that you can change certain vaariables to make them match the system you are integrating with.
If you know what your changed variables need to be, can you mod MiniBB to use them before you install the script, or is it always done afterwards.
I am not the one who would be doing this kind of work (I have a partner that does the "heavy lifting") but I was just asking before I spoke to him about trying out MiniBB.
I would rather have one "joomlafied" version of MiniBB that I can then easily deploy with any Joomla install I have or do in the future.
Or am I missing the point and that this work can be done BEFORE installing MiniBB?
