I'm already looking at doing this myself, with as little modification of the module files as possible, but are there any plans to make it possible for the Forums to utilize Andrew Short's memberprofiles module instead of its own ForumRole and ForumMemberProfile?
I knew I should have checked in trac first. I'm glad to hear it. I've been very impressed with SilverStripe over the past month I've been using it.
I'm really interested in finding a solution to this? it just seems logical to have member sites have the forum integrated with the user accounts!
at the moment my site doesn't have a forum, but does use the 'memberprofiles' module.
Any help appreciated
looking at back at this question, i have set up a site with the and member profiles modules.
they both use different registration forms, but the simple options seemed to be to redirect (i used .htaccess for this) the forum registration form back to the 'member profiles' registration form (which seems much more customisable with welcome text, email etc), so that all my new members come through the same route..
I also added mollon to this sign up form, and it all seems to work fine...
What do we have to write in the file .htaccess to do this?
How have you added mollon to a memberprofiles module?
And, another question, Do you know how to make the email field only accept valid email?
In the .htaccess file I put
redirect 301 /ForumMemberProfile/register /resources/my-account/
redirect 301 /ForumMemberProfile/login /Security/login?BackURL=/resources/my-account/
- my member profiles page is held at resources/my-account/ - you'd have to adjust this to your needs
Mollon, in the end, I gave up on mollon - it annoyed me! 2 reasons - it tries to download a MP3 file with a long random name- which in chrome (i think it was) opens up in the download box and just looks very suspicious. And also it's pretty hard to read the input. The aim of my site is to welcome members not put them off, and I noticed a distinct drop off in members joining after putting Mollon in.
Instead, I found Simple Spam Protector module -http://www.silverstripe.org/simple-spam-protector-module/
It works very simply by putting a hidden field in the form, if an automated script comes along and alters the content, it knows the form wasn't from a real person. The person viewing the website sees nothing. And it works very well for me!
Thank you very much Futureweb! :)
I'll try your intructions to see if everything works for me properly.
