Hello! How can I include MiniBB Forum's login table to apear and work in my existing web page's index.php? Can I simply copy and paste code or I must do something else! MiniBB is the best I've ever seen! It's great working! :)

Just open your forums, in browser do View - Source, copy form contents between <form...> and </form> - I guess, this is the only thing you need...

bb_cookie.php is the file which stores login determination. I think, you just need to include it (including setup_mysql.php also) and call user_logged_in() function like it is made in index.php

Ok, so this is somewhat related to the thread I just made.

I want to do this also, at the top of mine.

I tried making a new file to test how this would work, I removed the defines, so I could include the files but still nothing.

I think this is a big feature that someone here should write a document on.

I've been up since 9 PM yesterday till now trying to make this lol.

no need to remove defines. add the following line prior to running includes instead:

define ('INCLUDED776',1);

there's no documentation for this feature because depending on your web page structure it may require custom programming. Perhaps, in future we'll release it as a separate plugin though.

Basically you need to include the login form in your web-page body, inlcude setup_mysql.php, bb_functions.php and bb_cookie.php and if user is logging in, like
if (isset($_POST['mode']) and $_POST['mode']=='login') require($pathToFiles.'bb_func_login.php');

i would suggest to modify bb_func_login.php to meet your site needs.. like it should make correct(in terms of your site design and structure) outputs if error message needs to be displayed for example..

I'll thank you for that code you gave me, because it's the first time I haven't gotten an error. But here is my code: I modified bb_func_login.php for no other variables

<form action="" method=post class=formStyle>
<span class=txtNr><b>&raquo;</b></span><input type=text size=10 maxlength=40 name="user_usr" value="{$user_usr}" class=textForm tabindex=3>
<span class=txtNr><b>&raquo;</b></span><input type=password size=10 maxlength=32 name="user_pwd" class=textForm tabindex=4>
<input type=hidden name=mode value=login>
<input type=hidden name=queryStr value="{$queryStr}">
<input type=hidden name=pagetype value=index><input type=submit value="Sign in" class=inputButton></form>

include ("setup_options.php");
include ("setup_mysql.php");
include ("bb_functions.php");
include ("bb_cookie.php");

if (isset($_POST['mode']) and $_POST['mode']=='login') require("bb_func_login.php");

No it doesn't work, haha :-\ ... see if I include those files, and put the form, why does it work in the forum, and not my index? Do I have to edit bb_func_cookie ? I'm confused.

Check the Wordpress solution, it gives any details on incorporating miniBB, further you need just to use your fanstasy.

I don't use cookies for login on my site, I use beans :) Since minibb does use cookies, is it still possible to integrate the two in the way shown in the Wordpress example? I could still use the same table but maybe not have auto-login between the two. I guess I don't mind that but I would need to enable logging in either in my part or minibb, but no changing user info in minibb!

What do you mean by "beans"?

Article provided describes all principles and files you need to edit. If users database structure is compatible with miniBB algorithms, editing a couple of files, it is possible to integrate on any authorization base - cookies, sessions...
