PartyMania Posted January 25, 2005 Share Posted January 25, 2005 (edited) Hi, I've searched and stumbled across quite a few posts, but it seems no one's come up with a solution for this. I saw in the contribution section that one was made for phpbb, but not yet for vbulletin. I have an esistant vbulletin forum running, and want to stay with them instead of going to phpbb. OSCommerce is the best e-commerce solution. vBulletin is the best web forums available (a shame it's not free). So how come someone hasn't integrated them? I'm fairly new to PHP and SQL, so most of the coding is probably over my head, but the concept seems simple, no? Main modifications: -Add a username field into oscommerce. The customer could login via typing their username OR email address. -Modify the OSCommerce password hash routine. And copy password to VB DB when account is created/modified. - Will have to find a solution for when a user resets their password. Customer Routine 1- When the customer goes to create an account from the forum side, he/she is redirected to the OSC create account. 2- Account is created and the username and password fields are copied to the VB database. These are the only two fields you need. 3- Customer would then be able to login from either side and stay logged in while visiting the forums or shop through the same session. That's all I could think of at the moment, am I missing anything? So would anyone else be interested in something like this, or am I wasting my time here? To the guys like Chemo :P , how hard would a contribution like this be? Edited January 25, 2005 by PartyMania Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
