I should have added to the announcement that CMSB will allow you to integrate phpBB v2.0.3 into your geeklog site.

There is one change to one geeklog file, lib-common.php.

Does this bridge accomplish this by maintaining user tables for each application and tying them together somehow or did you implement your own single credential set system?

The reason people blame things on previous generations is that there's only one other choice.

It moves authorization data from the CMS into the native tables of the bridged application. In phpBB, for instance, users are created and logged in automatically when a user logged into Geeklog activates the link to phpBB.

After that event, all navigation and control is native to phpBB The phpBB DB schema is not changed, nor is the Geeklog schema. They are just piped together. Data flows from Geeklog to phpBB, but not the other way.

Over time, it may be useful to have a middleware table that allows granularity of permissions, like you have in geeklog. This would allow users to be authorized at different levels to the application, assuming both the CMS and the application supported levels.

I\'ve got the bridge and phpBB running on Squatty.com. Great work! I\'m having some issues understanding the wrap_url and dynamic menu code/instructions. Are there any how-to documents available?

There is doc on wrap_url at the support web site http://cmsb.dbserve.net

Wrap_url is not an essential part of CMSBridge. It was knid of the grandfather of CMSB, but now CMSB has departed from the restrictions of wrap_url and gone off to seek its fortune independently.

It is still a useful menuing system, however.

Geeklog2 will boast a robust authentication and authorization system (A&A). The A&A system can be used apart from Geeklog2 with other applications and can support single credential sets OR separate them. This may make your CMS bridge easier to do in the future. I should have a beta ready in a week or so.
