Getting phpBB to work with my site (API?)

Post by phpJIM » Mon Feb 02, 2009 10:58 pm

OK, newby question here. I've looked at the documentation and scanned the posts here, but I'm not having any luck. Would somebody please help me learn how to create the API so that my site can hand-off user info to phpBB? I'll be thrilled with a link to somewhere where the docs are, or an attachment, or something.

Thanks.

Jim

The simplest type of integration is an authentication module. There is information on this in the phpBB Wiki.

phpBB also has a hooks system that can be used for more advanced tasks. Information on this is available in the phpBB download package, in the /docs/ directory.

Thanks. It appears that all of that is unavailable while phpBB is down.

Sigh.

Anyone have another source?

What are you missing? I gave a working link to the wiki (via Google's cache). The phpBB package is available at ohloh

All the wiki links seem to point back to phpBB.com and I get this result:

Where might I be able to SEE an example of the authorization script?

There are three included in phpBB, look in the /includes/auth/ directory.

I don't know of any other publicly released auth plugins, but there have been several custom-written for individual sites.
