Integrate OSCommerce and PhpBB3 - Is it possible?

Hi!!

 

I don't know if it is possible... I have a phpbb3 empty forum, and i'd like to integrate it with OSCommerce..

I mean, if a customer is registered in the shopping cart, so it is in the forum, and viceversa.

The appearance is not a problem, using the same header and colors, both are integrated.

 

Cheers :P

i've integrated phpbb with another site, so yes it's possible.

 

i ended up disabling the registration, password change and all other related features in phpbb. then, when the user logs in to the site and goes to the forums, i wrote a little code to insert the appropriate session information into the phpbb session so it thought the person had logged in. there are a couple of gotchas that you need to cover, but it wasn't too difficult for me.

 

if you'd like to talk more about it, feel free to get in touch.

Arietis,

 

Could you post the code to insert the appropriate session information into the phpbb session? I (and many others) would really appreciate it. Thanks!

well, maybe i wasn't clear in my previous post. when i say i integrated it with another site, it was not an oscommerce site. so posting that code wouldn't help you. based on my experience with that, however, i know that such integration is possible.

 

since then, i have found out that there is an osc contribution for phpbb / osc integration. it may not work with the current version of phpbb though, as i understand there's been an upgrade to that product. you might take a look at that contribution as a starting point though and see if you can get something to work.

 

sorry i couldn't be more helpful.....
