[New] Bridges?


Full Board URL: http://forums.flameontheotherside.com/
XMB Version: 1.9.11

I realize this might be a waste of time to ask but...

If I remember correctly, way way back there used to be a bridge available to integrate with the forums. Anyone know what I'm talking about? xD

Not sure... haven't heard of it? Not all these mods have been tested with the latest xmb release.

It's like having a portal or CMS Content Management System like Drupal or Joomla. Joomla had a phpbb forum bridge and so on. I could swear that there was at one point a CMS that had a bridge for XMB.

Depends on your definition for "bridge" and the second cms you intend to use along with XMB which you forgot to mention...:sniffle:

It's fairly easy to make a single registration or login page for two different content management systems. The hard part is to make sure they don't conflict and work in sync with each other. There are thousands of variables to take into account. For example, imagine the case when WordPress don't allow white-spaces in the nicknames while XMB does or a simple case of deleting user in word-press and having no code to remove it on the XMB simultaneously..."Bridges" like that would collapse sooner than you would expect. Even basic things such as password hashing and MySQL table encoding might turn out to be incompatible. One system may use md5 other sha512 third bcrypt and etc. Will you be willing to globally reset everyone's password when moving? I doubt that.
So at some point you will have to edit the core of one or another system and maintain it by yourself which will cut you off the software updates from the provider and potentially expose you to the security holes.

What's wrong with using kunena forum component? It's a perfect solution for Joomla users.:drool:
