I already read some articles about SMF integration, hooks, etc. But as I'm absolutely new to SMF (but have good knowledge about php/mysql), I still have a question:
From a news article inside a CMS a discussion thread inside SMF should be created automatically. All necessary fields (subject, text, board ID, etc.) will be provided by a POST request, the CMS will have his own SMF user account. How do I authenticate the CMS user? What has to be concidered when posting threads by script?
I'm happy about every hint I can get, so thanks in advance for your feedback!
Check out how it's done in the Joomla discussbot:
