API for adduser/deluser/login/logout

Post by Sancious »

Hi all,

I wish to know if Olympus release it's planned to have a little class of API to permit adduser/deluser/login/logout process by other application as es. the login system of a portal. In this way it's not necessary another user registration or login process in phpBB.

Bye

phpBB is not a portal nor will it ever be. that's why it's called phpBulletinBoard not phpPortal.

this may or may not answer your question but since your english was so badly broken I could only gather that you were referring to something about a portal, which phpBB is not and never will be.

In fact, what you are talking about is indeed in the works within one of the Community Coding Projects, Im unsure as to the status of it so I cant comment on anymore than that. However the community coding projects timeframe I believe was aiming at 3.2 so dont expect it anytime soon..

"PHP Hypertext Pre-processor Bulletin Board" please. ;) Though given that a lot of people seem to think PHP == phpBB, "phpBB PHP Hypertext Pre-processor BB Bulletin Board" might be a more appropiate recursive acronym... :P

For what the original poster describes, I'd suggest looking at writing your own authentication plugin to authenticate with the other software rather than adding the users to phpBB if that is what you are wanting to do

Can someone confirm that the Community Coding Project that I described above is actually going ahead?? Because as per psoTFX it only had 1 user assigned with 2 weeks left on the clock..

Authentication modules are a native feature and have been present and working for a while. Not sure what else you are referring to

I think what he is asking is if there is a function within phpBB3 that can be called by an external PHP program to add or delete a user easily.

I run a forum that runs phpBB2. We wanted only those with email accounts on the same server to have a forum login (with the same username), so I wrote a Perl script to try to emulate the adding and removing of user accounts as closely as possible. That script is ran each time I add or remove a mail account on that server.

I'm sorry for my horrible english :) but I see that you have understood my question.

I have a website with a centralized login & user registration system. I use phpBB as forum and I wrote a class of API to sync data between the site engine and phpBB database. Simply, I hoped that phpBB3 had integrated API(exported functions) to integrate phpBB user data with other engines. :D

Bye and Thanks

Sancious: as already suggested, an authentication plug-in would probably be the solution to that problem. It would mean that phpBB will actually use your portal's user database, and ignore its own; no need to do any syncing at all. :D
