Basically yes - people that register with Wordpress get autoregistered with Phorum - they can start blogging/posting depending on your Phorum/Wordpress access control.

Ok, the problem that I can see from this approach is, how about the control panel for user on pohrum? I mean after we syncronize the user, whatever that was done on wordpress can be easily syncrhonized to phorum, but how about the user use the user control panel on phorum? It needs to syncronize with wordpress as well, isn't it?

Btw, I'm looking for a solution to integrate this with MODx CMS.

ANy help will be awesome. Is there any better way to achieve this, other than duplicating the users information between two system? I wouldn't mind though, but if there is a better way, it will b much better.

Thanks

Well, I believe the Phorum control panel should be changed by those installing it this way to not allow you to change things that exist in both places. Of course, that does not make it as much of a drop in and go solution, but like I have said in other threads, the problem people have now is that the drop in solutions are no as robust as they would like.

Well, I completely disabled the phorum control panel for my users here, so I took no look into this.

Thanks Bryan.

Could you guide me to the right direction? Is it as simple as disabling the link from the template or do you have a better option to do it right on the core? I mean by disabling only certain fields, for example id, username, and password.

Which file should I look into? I might need to work on the template too though, ever since after integrating the phorum inside MODx, right now I have an html tag inside html tag, lol :D

I have done this at [www.the-legion-of-doom.com] with partial success.

I have the WP plugin installed, and it clearly is doing its job as new users are simultaneously created in the Phorum.

The Phorum module is also installed and active, but it doesn't appear to be working. Users logged in to the main (WP) site are not automatically logged in to the forum...

I'm pretty clever but don't have loads of experience with php functions and db stuff. I could really use some help here... please...

As I said, check out if the phorum plugin works correctly - insert some "echo" statements there, and check if the right data gets inserted into the $GLOBAl

Did it. Problem found--and solved.

Thanks!

I can now offer [www.the-legion-of-doom.com] as another working example of this integration, for anyone interested.
