Re: Better integration into a CMS in phpbb 2.2 ?

IMO your analogy doesn't really fit in here. however, i quote someone from the xaraya.com forum: It's rather disappointing that world class forum developers aren't interested in CMSs and world class CMS developers aren't interested in forums. There are loads of messages on the phpBB forum asking how...

Re: Better integration into a CMS in phpbb 2.2 ?

No, I'm not involved in the developement of any CMS or other project. But I do know quite a few CMS and bulletin boards. Competition is a good thing, we need several CMS and forum projects to compete with each other, to constantly improve the surfing experience and make it more powerful. But there's...

Re: Better integration into a CMS in phpbb 2.2 ?

My point is that the phpbb dev team could make this integration as easy as possible. If I was a developer of phpbb, I would be proud if it was modular and the best professional CMS would work hand in hand with my product making it a quasi standard not only for stand alone bulletin boards, but also a...

Re: Better integration into a CMS in phpbb 2.2 ?

I didn't intend to run down phpbb portal. I'm not interested in phpbb portal, this discussion wasn't about phpbb portal. All I assume is that phpbb portal is built around phpbb and is a community based portal solution, less like a content / framwork centred CMS like typo3 or xaraya. So much about *n...

Re: Better integration into a CMS in phpbb 2.2 ?

@Skeleton:
Please keep it on topic and factual. As I pointed out, phpBB portal may parallel the original phpnuke and other community based solutions, but not a typo3 or xaraya.

Re: Better integration into a CMS in phpbb 2.2 ?

@psoTFX: Thank you very much for your reply. Probably the phpBB portal can parallel a phpnuke, but not a xaraya or typo3 if CMS functionality counts. I'm talking about a great framework and API, event/hook system, workflow management, modularity, etc. Most of the sites driven by these modern, compre...

Re: Better integration into a CMS in phpbb 2.2 ?

Of course an integrated phpBB in a CMS would result in a lot of redundant features and functionalities.
But who cares if they don't use the same API as long as there is only one single user management?
There's absolutely no need for dozens of bulletin boards, all trying to imitate phpBB and vbulletin.

Re: Better integration into a CMS in phpbb 2.2 ?

It's not about integrating a portal system into phpBB, it's about integrating the best forum into the best CMS' because a phpBB portal will never be as sophisticated as the (API of) modern CMS, nor will the bulletin boards of the CMS have all the features of phpBB.

Better integration into a CMS in phpbb 2.2 ?

Hi there As you're developing a major new release of phpbb and so many professional content management systems (CMS) lack of a very sophisticated forum, it's definitely time to ease the integration of phpbb into these CMS. What does integration mean? - phpbb uses the authentication (user & groups) a...
