Integration with UBB Classic
« on: March 01, 2004, 07:39:07 am »

I run UBB Classic discussion board on my site, and would like to know if it is possible to modify Coppermine to allow discussion forum members to automatically be included in the gallery's "registered" user group, with the same login name and password.

One problem I forsee would be that Coppermine doesn't seem to allow spaces to be included in a user's login name, and many of my forum members have spaces in their login names.

There is already a way to integrate the user database of various bbs with coppermine (currently, there are so called "bridge files" for phpBB, YaBB SE, vbulletin and IBF).
In your case, there would have to be another bridge file for the bbs you're running. Take a look at the existing bridge files - maybe you can rewrite one of them to fit to your needs. (If you manage to do so, please share).

I'll take a look at the existing bridges and see if I can put together a bridge for UBB Classic.  I've only begun to learn Perl and PHP, but I might know just enough to create a new bridge from an existing one.

I'll let you know how it goes.

:?:  UBB.Classic doesn't use db (as far as I know).

However, UBB.threads does use mySQL db, and I would love to have bridge for that.

I myself don't have enough understanding in php to re-write that bridge, so is there anyone here willing to make that?
(I have UBB-theards demo version installed if someone would like to help me...)
