XP_Publish not logged in with bridge active
« on: August 07, 2005, 04:47:15 am »

I managed to get the xp_publish going with the fixes in the topic  below

Unfortunatly when my xoops bridge is active i cannot use it, say's not logged in please use "remember me" option etc
Does anyone else have this bug when a bridge is active?

I am using IE to log in to the site before trying to publish as well. When i disable the bridge and use xp_publish it actually asks for a login and continues on ok. This is fine but I would like to be able to keep the bridge active and just be asked for a login when publishing.

If any more info is needed please let me know

Please Read in that same topic you linked to:
Just a note for everyone:

If you have a particular bridge file that you want xp_publish to work with, you have to create a login method for it. See the coppermine bridge file for an example. I'm going to do the Mambo bridge file, so those two will/should work with xp_publish.
You will have to write your own integration script. This is not a bug but a missing feature. xp_publish is currently not combatible stock with bridge files. An example would be with my script with Invision Board I used the bridge functions that are already available to read the correct cookie information, or if that fails display a login screen. What you need to do this is like omniscientdeveloper said. Its right in front of you.


note: maybe sometime in the next month or so when I get time I will modify the script to check for logins generically and post in the hacks/mods section.

note2: @phatbloke - I just saw how much support you were asking for in the other post, please note that the bridge is not a bug, as you probably already know, and please quite asking for support within the bugs reporting forum. Please wait for the release of 1.4 before starting posts asking for support.

I didn't realise it was a missing feature. I have a reasonable amount of php knowledge so will try to integrate login support for xoops and see how i go.

It can often be a fine line between asking for support and reporting bugs etc. I'm not expecting support generally just trying to help out the cause and contribute where i can.

Hopefully i can sus out this bridge conflict and help out.

Commited a login method into udb_base.php (1.12) that should support bridge login for anything that uses md5(password) in the database. Any other bbs will need to override the method in their own bridge file.
