I am not a hard core script bunny, so please bear with my relative lack of knowledge...
I have been running a PHPBB3 BB for a while now which is great... for a while people have asked for a gallery and I came across Coppermine.
So... played with it in a stand alone environment and all is great - linked through from my BB and it worked
I then saw I could bridge it which will be much better as I would like to have one set of usernames/passwords to make it look slicker for the end users.
This is where the fun starts (or not as the case may be)!
In my hosted hierarchy, the BB resides at website/KFB/phpbb3 and coppermine resides at website/KFB/coppermine
I have checked in PHPBB3 and it says that my PHPBB3 cookie is called 'phpbb3_ugo7m'
So in the bridge wizard I have entered;
URL of the bridge app: website/KFB/phpbb3
Relative path to your bridge app's config file: ../phpbb3/
Cookie Prefix: phpbb3_ugo7m
One query is that for URL of the bridge app, the help balloon says "Make sure to add a trailing slash - the URL must be http://www.yourdomain.tld/forum/
and not just http://www.yourdomain.tld/forum
"... but if I enter website/KFB/phpbb3/ it errors saying "There mustn't be a trailing slash in the field URL of the bridge app." So I have to remove the trailing / to get further.
Once all set up and activated it seems OK - from the Coppermine menu if I click on users it links over to the PHPBB3 BB and lists the users, etc... but when I click on the link to get to the coppermine gallery from the forum it just loops back to the forums login screen.
Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?
I have created a Test user with extremely limited access to let you guys play...
You will only see one forum called "Photo Gallery" and then a single post with a link to the gallery.
Interestingly enough just now when I tested the Test-User login, when I left the forum to redirect me it took me straight to the gallery, but then the second time I tried it took me to the forum - so now I am very confused. It seems to let me in sometimes and not others :S
BTW - I did clear cookies from IE... just incase?
Any help greatly received.
All seems OK
