Has anyone had experience with integrating FUDforum with a site built with a content management system, such as Nuke, Postnuke, PHPWebsite, Midgard, etc.... Many of them have their own forum software, but not all, and none are full featured like FUDforum.

Trying to maintain the same look and feel across the entire site is a nice thing.... Smile

Running a forum inside a CMS has no great advantages at all. It just gets squelched into a small frame and topics become unreadable. Besides I don't like this "one login for all" idea behind it. Maintaining the forum always will affect ur nuke site as well and upgrading can become a pain in the a.. bottom Smile. Best bet is to keep those two things seperate and modify the forum's looks that it would match to the rest of ur site. Just my opinion based on personal experiences with such systems, doesn't have to be valid for the rest of the world Smile

Well, it is not all bad. IMHO the idea of a common user account system has some merit, however a forum is too much of an indepedant app to integrate into something complex as a CMS.
In fact I believe that CMSs that do have forums in them force the forums to be rather limited in their functionality to avoid stepping on the toes of the CMS itself.
Then again keep in mind that I am of VERY low opinion of 2 most commonly used PHP based CMS's PHPNuke and PostNuke.

Yeah, I wholeheartedly agree to that. They ve been a good source of annoying bugs and what is worse, they hardly let u any freedom of customizing both look and functionality. u can't even have several menu levels. There are only very few open source systems which satisfy those needs, and the two mentioned are certainly not among them.

Ok, I hate to hash this again and yes, I'm of the same opinion about the nukes. How difficult or hard would it be to integrate FUD with say XOOPS?

I'm on the core team and have been actively looking for a new forum for a while and FUD stands out. Ours is based on a HIGHLY modified phpbb core.

Hmm, to be honest I am not familiar with XOOPS, so I cannot tell how difficult that would be done. I do think it should be possible to do without great difficulty, but I'll require some work.

Thanks.. We just release our 2.0 product which is heavy on OO. I've been trynig to find a good OO based forum to replace ours but, no avail which is why I'm looking at FUD, perfect balance of features and usability.

Bringing this thread from the deads.
I hope to work this week about a hack between xaraya and fud.

Xaraya team has do the job with phpbb and ipb (+ ldap, email, url and self auth sytem), why not fud? Rolling Eyes

I wrote some dirty module for xaraya (http://www.xaraya.com/).
It works, you can login to xaraya using FUDforum users table. After logging your login is added to the xaraya users table in the group you choose.
The only one thing i have a problem is checking if the Fudforum user is banned or not.
I hope to find a clean solution sooner.
I can post it here if someone wants to play with it.

Great job. I tried your solution in the Xaraya boards and it works just like the phpBB version.

The only thing missing, as far as I can tell, for a seamless integration is single login to both Xaraya and FUDforum.

I am hoping to get some help by creating another thread for this.

Perhaps a cookie or a session problem.
I don't know "howto" and my php skills are too weak to resolve this.
