    Hey there, I would like to install a forum (ex phpBB) on my site, and integrate a login / user management system on my main site... how would I go about doing this?

    For example: I am a visitor of my website, I want to create an account so I can download content and use the forums...

    So let's say I create an account off a link on my main site (will use the code from phpBB but create my own layout etc.). Once I created an account and logged in, I can now use the forums, and features I want to add... so prety much i want to to have one login for everything, but dont want to code a whole forum.

    Any help is much aprechiated. - Thanks in advance =)

    It depends on the forum engine. The easiest way for vBulletin at least (what this site uses) is to make your custom pages powered by the forum engine itself so it inherits all the functionality (templates and login system). No good for larger sites, though, at which point you have to figure out something for that specific forum engine.

    Hi,
    We have integrated phpBB on one of our websites, you have to get code from phpBB support forum, then you have to copy that to all pages of your website , that will make a common session.
    Thanks

    As long as you can figure out what data is meant to look like going into the forum database, it's really quite simple.

    Look thru some of the forum classes and functions and you'll figure things out in no time.
