PunBB integration
« on: July 08, 2004, 08:28:31 am »

I use PunBB (www.punbb.org) as my forum app and would like to integrate it with Coppermine.  How does one go about creating a bridge for an unsupported BBS?  I took a quick look at the bridge folder and the xx.inc.php files it contains...  is it as easy as creating a similar one for PunBB and adding it to the list in init.inc.php?

Also, assuming I eventually get integrated, is there any around that sub-domain problem mentioned in the docs? (ie:  integrating board.site.com & gallery.site.com)

Yes. Please share your brdige file once you're done.

, no, since it's www-imanent: sub-domains are different domains as well. It's a restrcition for all cookies on all www-servers, that only the webserver/domain that set the cookie is allowed to read it. The only workaround would be some kind of web-bug (similar to those used by data-mining advertisment-cookies) that allow information to be passed over, but this would need some hacking and would still have to be adjusted for every domain/sub-domain, making it hard to implement for not-so-experienced users.

I'm not sure I'm familliar enough with PunBB's inner workings to make the required changes but I'll see what I can do (with a little help from forums.punbb.org)

I'd really hate to have to move my forum and gallery... is it possible for cookies to be set as www.site.com so that they can be used across all subdomains of site.com?

like I said: there's no way to spoof cookies. The only thing you could possibly come up with is a web-bug like the datamining guys do, but this will require some knowledge.

If you set the cookie domain of the board's cookies to .domain.com (note the dot at the start) then they should be readable from subdomains, have been in my experience.

So this bridge thing is a lot more complicated than I imagined...  If anyone wants to help me out and write a bridge for one of the fastest fourm packages out there, please do!  PunBB code is found at: http://www.punbb.org

I cannot justify switching my photo gallery to Coppermine until I can integrate with punBB - and I'd really like to do that!

OK, I'll make one for you since I have nothing better to do.   :)

Prolly take a day or so though, I've never come across punbb before.

Man, people like you rock!  The world of opensource is filled with wonderfull folks! Nyah, nyah to the Micro-softies and their profit-driven bean-counters!

K, I'm done now...  It's been a long week.

Anywho, thanks again Nibbler - can't wait to test it!

Commited the bridge to be in Coppermine 1.4.

If you can't wait for it, then you can download it from the bottom of this post.

@Nibbler: great work - I think the punbb community owes you a beer ;). Do you think the bridge file is ready to be released with cpg1.3.2 as well?

Hi everyone!

I'm running a punbb install at www.shuttertalk.com (digital photography news and discussion forums)  and I think that integrated coppermine gallery would be awesome!


Pardon my apparent daftness - I looked at the test site that you put up Nibbler, but I can't figure out how it works --

Are individual users supposed to get their own galleries?  I created a test user, but when I clicked on the "Coppermine Photo Gallery" link in punbb, it just went to the coppermine gallery page.  How do users upload photos, etc.?


Thanks,
Julian

Nibbler's demo page doesn't come with user interaction, it's a proof of concept. The bridge file integration only makes Coppermine use the bbs' user and groups management, but permissions what a user is allowed to do (have a personal gallery, upload to public albums etc.) is being set up in coppermine.
I recommend setting up Coppermine as standalone on your site, get it up and running and then test integration with punbb.

Demo setup is now restored, latest version of the bridge file will always be here. Make sure you follow the instructions in the zip file for redirection to work.

Quick question:
1.  I assume to have the link in punbb to coppermine, I just add a link to "/gallery" right?

Hi, I've set up a test install of coppermine, and it appears to be working.  I can login and logout using usernames in my punbb users list.

However, I'm now getting some mysql errors... this one's when trying to view album list:
http://www.shuttertalk.com/gallery/index.php?cat=1

Let me ask a question first up - does coppermine and punbb need to be installed in the same db?  I've installed them in separate dbs.

Ok the error:

Code: [Select]
While executing query "SELECT (category - 10000) as user_id,        '???' as user_name,        COUNT(DISTINCT a.aid) as alb_count,        COUNT(DISTINCT pid) as pic_count,        MAX(pid) as thumb_pid FROM cpg_albums AS a INNER JOIN cpg_pictures AS p ON p.aid = a.aid WHERE approved = 'YES' AND category > 10000  GROUP BY category ORDER BY category " on Resource id #7

From the documentation that comes with coppermine:
Quote
It is also recommended that you use the same database for your board and Coppermine (in fact it is even mandatory!).
Although it is possible (in theory), it's rather hard to accomplish. I recommend using the same db.

Hey Nibbler...

Nice work with the bridge.  The morphue theme works well with punbb.

I noticed a problem - the "Moderators" group wasn't in the bridge file and was some php errors if a moderator tried to use the gallery.

I've fixed it on mine but you might have to update your package.


Regards,
Julian
