Single Signon Tutorial Request: EDK + Forum (+maybe CMS) isk

Post by Gorelok » Thu Jul 09, 2009 00:58

Hi,

Was sure where to post this, so feel free to move it.

I know at least one person (warbear?) has done this but I was wondering if it has been documented anywhere.
Either CMS+EDK+Forum or (and I think unlikely) EDK+Forum

I am reasonably familiar with bridges and that most people use a CMS eg. Joomla as 'glue' between multiple signons products, but I have only seen it mentioned here once.

Any responses appreciated, especially from people that have done it. Also I will offer some ISK for a written howto to start it off, how much depends on workload (let me know).

The apiuser mod lets you link to a phpbb session. Not sure if/how well it works though.

Thanks, however I am using that already - though it is mostly broken - its main goal seems to have been to stop people from just registering on the killboard (kb), it makes it so they have to be registered and logged in on the forum first before they can register on kb.

Users still have to sign on separately to the forum vs the EDK board.

Some simple changes to the apiuser code to have it read the PHPBB sessions should be all that's needed. You'll probably have to be registered on the forum with the same name as the KB but that's probably the case anyway.

I'll try and make the changes tonight and post a modified version here.

I've "integrated" it with SMF by using only the SMF API.

Basically, I unset all the passwords on the killboard for posting mail and comments, then, in the main index.php I wrapped the whole file in a call to a custom function that validates the users SMF session. If they don't have one, they're sent to the forum to log in.

The forum is using the eve API mod to validate that users are members of the alliance via their API key.

Of course this isn't even approaching full integration, but it's a step, and prevents anyone other than alliance members from seeing the killboard at all, nevermind trying to post stuff to it.

I've used the EDK in a wrapper in my Joomla! site the only downside is the padding on the site is too thick and the EDK doesn't all show. I end up having to vertically scroll. A bit of a pain, but if i can find the code for the padding width, i would be set otherwise, it works pretty well.
