As i seen that it was possible to integrate PhpBB into Silverstrip, I asked whether it were possible to carry out a bridge between Punbb and Silverstrip ?

Maybe with the "punbb.class.php".

What would you like to do? Use your existing userlist also for Silverstripe ?

Fuzz10, yes in the second time i will use the existing userlist.
But firts, i want a register and login/logout between Silverstripe and Punbb twice.
I do not know if I'm explained well (I'm French).

For the single signon, i think it's possible not ?
I had installed external-authentication before ask my first question, but I do not see how use it for my problem.

If you can help me. You can find [url=]here [/url], the punBB integration class.

Here an PunBB config file example


// This is just an example config. The install script will generate a correct
// version of this file when you install PunBB. This file is here merely as a
// backup if the working version is somehow lost or corrupted.

$db_type = 'blabla';
$db_host = 'blabla';
$db_name = 'blabla';
$db_username = 'blabla';
$db_password = 'blabla';
$db_prefix = '';
$p_connect = false;

$cookie_name = 'punbb_cookie';
$cookie_domain = '';
$cookie_path = '/';
$cookie_secure = 0;
$cookie_seed = 'asdf1234';   // Make up your own secret seed here

define('PUN', 1);

Thanks for your help.
