The e-commerce.



Recommended Posts

I am starting this thread for both support area and general discussion about integrating openBB into osC.

My current effort is towards reworking openBB to use osC authentication.


If you post here, someone will try to help you as I/we/they can.

Keep in mind, that most of us have to earn a living and may not be able to respond immediately, so be patient. =)

For those that want to know...=)

I now have openBB integrated into the content of my gamesite.

It was a little complicated, but not very.

I will post an integration contribution after I have finished the merge of the forum login with osCommerce login.

In summary, you just need to create a forums.php page designed like your current pages.

within the main body area, you will need to add require('fullurlpathtoyourforums')


this will wrap your forums with your pages.


I did notice a problem with images.

you need to copy the images from the forums directory to your main images directory.


Yet another problem...

In my header, the header background image is layering in my header when i open the forums. But, this is not a major concern for me right now. Especially since I hacked away at the header to remove all the shopping cart images.


anyway, i think openbb is going to work out great for integration with the best ecommerce engine on the internet, osCommerce!!!

wound up using an iframe to get it to work properly

here is the content you can use to embed it in your php document

<tr height=600><td>

<iframe src="http://www.yourdomain.com/forums/"'>http://www.yourdomain.com/forums/" marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 hspace=0 vspace=0 frameborder=0 scrolling=yes>

<ilayer src="http://www.yourdomain.com/forums/ visibility="show">





you can adjust the tr height to fit your board

use the content below to make your forums.php file.

this will make your forums page look like the rest of your site.
