Simple Machines Forum

Post by xec » Mon Sep 12, 2005 7:14 am

I would like to install Simple Machines Forum on my website. I would like it set up in a way that my users will only have to sign up one time and be signed up for the site and the forum.

I don't know if I need the Mambo-SMF Bridge, the Mambo-SMF Forum component or both. And if I need both which one do I install first? Please help. Thank you.

EDIT:  Will having Mambo and SMF require 2 databases?

I use Mambo-SMF Integration version 1.3.1.3  from http://www.mambohacks.com which is soon to be http://www.Joomlahacks.com

It will only require 1 database.

You should be aware though that this is not supported by the SMF community as it alters the copyright information in the footer.

Can you clarify this and source that view?  I understand the SMF has a differnet licence than Joomla, so I would hope that the mambohacks integration doesn't violate that license.  More info, please.

Cheers,

David

??? All this component does is syncronise user data between mambo and SMF.

It keeps the SMF copyright notice. What are you on about check out http://www.swanseastudent.net to see it in use.

If you have installed the mambo hacks bridge correctly you will have the same copyright info as in the forum at Mambohacks.com http://www.mambohacks.com/component/opt ... Itemid,78/.

Use the one mentioned at http://www.simplemachines.org/community ... ic=25718.0 and you'll be fine.

The bridge being supported and used by mambohacks.com modifies SMF's copyright info, which is a violation of our license. If you don't want to get in trouble, don't use it.

Hi Oldiesmann,

Are there steps being taken to work this out.  Can an end user restore the copyright info?  I ask because the mambohacks implementation is excellent, otherwise.  My first choice. 

What is being done to resolve this issue?

Thanks,

David

I do agree it would be nice for SMF and Mambo Hacks Work together to resolve this issue as it is a really nice component and Package! I would defiantly choose it over the Mambo SMF Bridge if it were legal.

??? They do exactly the same thing, the only difference is that the mambohacks one is slightly easier to install.  Not that the other is hard, there are step by step instruction included in the package.

Exactly its easier to install! And the layout is much nicer having under one component item in Mambo! Little things make a difference!

I like the separate db and low overhead.

Yeah ?  I looked at both a while ago and just couldn't get the MamboHacks one to work at all. 

The SMF (supported) one is a bit longer on the install, but at least it worked.

I'll try the Mambo Hacks one again maybe.

This is all well and good but there is no where to download the bridge.

The download link mentioned on the SMF forum discussion herepoints to the now dead Mamboforge!

Any other solutions available for a download?

It's available at http://www.mamboportal.com under Files (of course)

http://www.mamboportal.com/index.php?op ... unc=search that link might take you to it.

EDIT: the link above doesnt take you straight to the download page but takes you to the search page where you can enter what you're looking for.

Thanks so much ... I hope the forge here won't be long as so many files from components are lost in limbo.



Not a really clear option the one you mention.

HAve no idea s to what version of $ambo or SMF combo applies.

I'm running the same version as this forum but the Bridge docs say little more than nothing about this  ???

The links on the SMF forum to the $ambo bridge point to the $amboforge as well.

I posted the SMF supported bridge on another thread on here yesterday as well, if that helps.
