i couldn't find any topics on it, so i figured i would ask for myself, i tried with PHPBB but couldn't get it to work, and im just looking for another software for the forums so that i can intergrate them without any problems, is it possible to use the database & session information in the main pages? if so can i get some scripts that allow it, even if it means for every page, i would do it, thanks in advanced.

1. Intergation into layout: http://www.minibb.com/forums/index.php?action=manual#includeindex

2. Intergation with another user's database is possible, too. http://www.minibb.com/forums/index.php?action=manual#config2

(check $dbUserSheme option)

Complete manual will follow soon, after we release RC3a version.

lol, i think you misunderstood what i ment, i was just looking for the code to put on my website that allowed me to use the MiniBB forum database for my user login stuff on my main website, so that they would only register once, and they could do both, i saw a topic that allowed it, but the script was in a diff launguage well some of it altleast, well, i hope that you get the intergrating into a website manual done :D,

Like this www.reviews4poker.com ?

The scrpts I created are not completely ready to be released, however all I did was to create a couple of functions that check for the cookie if present validate against the database create a session upon success, if the session is present database authentication is not performed but the cookie detection is. If the cookie is not present then the session is destroyed if present and logout occurs, if cookie and session are present login is sucessful, logout is to set cookie values to zero. Login is through the form which checks the database and creates the cookie if sucessful. This allows for complete site login and logout functionality.


Then just used if statements to include templates login or logout and set variables to on for login and off for logout include different templates peform different functions depending on the values of those variables etc etc....

I also modified the registration form of minibb so that it collects the referring page as I have registration present on each page then once the registration is complete you can click the link and be taken directly back to the previous browsing page. That was just a hidden field added to registration form for http_refferer page then once registration is commplete it checks for the value and that is used to create the link.

There will be a way of doing it using the existing minibb functions however I found it quicker to create my own scripts rather than trolling through the code and troubleshooting any errors.

hope that helps.

If you think that we have universal functions for every personal site - you are wrong. First of all, every PHP programmer, and every PHP script he creates, is unique by itself. Every programmer has his own style of programming. Nobody is able to program universal funstions here. I haven't misunderstand you - otherwise. miniBB has everything prepared for combination with another's database and script; but if you have no knowledge about what authorization is, what users' table is - it is wrong idea, to get into these things for yourself. Better hire another programmer which will do these things much quicker.

I gave up on Mini BB i am still researching on how to intergrate it, and i am currently using IPB so yea, but i am researching for a various amount of boards how to intergrate the main website, then when i finish, ill put the files for download, and stuff, all that will be reqired will be a slight amount of information for the database and stuff, well i hope that we can get all of it figured out, once i get all my research done, it will simplfy everything in my opinion, and i hope that i can find people who have my same goal, that way i can team together with them, i am currently learning PHP right now, so i might be able to get it to connect correclty within the next month or so.

Not that it's a year later (and I'm hoping you'll see this reply), do you have anything you are ready to share, even privately? I checked out your site and I am trying to do the same thing...use miniBB's user database for login to my overall site, have a login box on every page, redirect back to the appropriate page after logging in, etc.

Thanks for any help!
