Coppermine and SMF 2.0.8
« on: August 13, 2014, 07:51:37 pm »

I have the following issue when trying to bridge coppermine and SMF 2.0.8:
I have followed the instructions of the wizard and it is not showing up on my SMF forum.  When I click on "finish" it asks if I want to start the wizard

Coppermine install: http://scratscraps.co.za/cmine
Bridging app install: http://scratscraps.co.za
Coppermine version: cpg1.5.30
Bridging app version: SMF 2.0.8
Test user account: test / Password: 1234

BridgeManager settings:
Bridge app URL:  http://scratscraps.co.za
Relative path to your bridge app's config file:  ../
Cookie name or prefix:  Did not ask me this question
Use bridge app custom groups?:  1 

What am I doing wrong?  Please help.

Bridging with SMF (or any forum) does not make your gallery show in the forum...
It does use the forum for user and group definitions/validations.
ie: clicking login from gallery will direct you to the forum login allowing a single login to both applications.

To make your gallery accessible from your forum, you need to make changes to the forum.
For smf in particular, a mod like 'Menu Editor Lite' will let you easily add to smf menus... I'm sure there are others. Search on the smf forum.

Thanks for the help Greg.  Will go have a look for the menu editor mod for SMF then.

Just a note about "Menu Editor Lite" It will remove any menu items that mods have added, such as portals etc, so you'll have to add them back manually.   And it will also remove the PM notifications (a core SMF feature), which I don't agree it should do, in favour of buying the paid version which gives you the notifications back.
