The situation on Portal, Gallery, WebMail & CMS / SMF combi?
« on: October 17, 2004, 11:58:23 AM »
As I remember I came in, fell in love with SMF and start looking for a Portal or CMS that works with SMF, I found it troublesome to see what Portals/CMS's are working with SMF and how far they are developping it. So afther weeks of reading up all topics, I decide to make a list.

I hope it's usefull and I will check on them weekly to add or change details. If you find it's in error  please post in this topic.
For more info hit the topic link and readup. See the edited link below for the last date this list is adapted to the new situation.

This list is old and most of it is changed or deprecated. A much better place to look is at this topic. Maybe in future I will make a new list of something usefull for SMF, just wait and see.

I have no intention to judge the solutions offered in this list, but try to have a 'one look to find the name one searches' with pointers to the information, if possible in this forum. I try to add true info for the comfort of the reader if possible from the makers of the bridges. If the info is not right or up to date I can't help that. This topic is ment to help in finding information, not for the discussion of the subjects as that should be done in the discussions mentioned in the list.
Edited: 20 dec 2010 working on it.)

Quote from: PORTAL-list
Portal  Bloc's Tiny Portal
TinyPortal is a package which adds a website to your Simple Machines Forum. A substantial website can be created around your forum using the same theme and navigation tools as SMF. The end result is a website/forum with a completely integrated look and feel.

TinyPortal is lightweight, fast and uses the same member database and login as SMF. Designed specifically for SMF, it complements the forum perfectly and won't interfere with or slow down your members at all.

Using the menu driven TinyPortal Admin Panel, you can configure anything from a minimal addition to a comprehensive website. In a minimal configuration, it serves as an entry point for your forum displaying welcome information, news articles, or the latest posts from your forum.

The list about Galery/CMS/Portal using SMF


A dark spot in the light is nearly seen, but a light in the darkness is seen miles away.
Try to be that light for others.

There are a couple of others, not sure if they are worthly of the list or not.  They are billing clients for web hosting, which are as follows:

Modernbill (currently have hooks for vbulliten, phpbb, and ib)
WHMAutoPilot (current release has no hooks, but next release due out shortly will - I drop a line over there ;))
lpanel (currently none - not sure if any are planned)

These are CPanel scripts, I now there is also:
Plesk
Helm

and a bunch more, but I THINK these are the majors...

Just a thought, not a requirement.

As far as I know they don't have anything for SMF...

Hi, thanks :).
What I see here are some scripts used to manage accounts/offering scripts to hostingcomps. I miss DirectAdmin in there, I'm using myself.
As far as I know there not integrating SMF but poss. offering SMF to install in an easy way.
Maybe it's worth to mention those that offer SMF in a seperate category, but this list was ment to gave info on integration efforts.
I will dive into that to see whats going on in that area, thanks for the help :).

Hiya,

Thanks for your efforts to maintain this list - it ain't easy.

I also use ModernBill and Plesk on my system, and would be interested in...

- a means to log into ModernBill to view/pay invoices, order hosting (this may be manageable through a custom Mambo component more so than SMF)
- means to install SMF through Plesk

I am *not* interested in ModernBill's pathetic ability to provision phpBB accounts that are yet another separate login from ModernBill and Plesk and e-mail and ftp etc.. we have altogether too many passwords on our site, and having integrated login is key for us.
 
I *am* interested in Horde IMP Integration with Mambo. I see these all more as Mambo issues than SMF really.

Cheers,

Tobias

I've installed Flashchat on a lot of SMF boards already. It integrates quite well with SMF and the instructions packaged with it for integration + the FlashChat Integration post on these boards makes it a snap for any level user. While I haven't delved into it deep, it looks pretty customizable, and is fairly functional.

have a look at http://www.alexscriptengine.de , there are some really nice scripts like a article management, news system, download sys. and gallery. There are Bridges to vb2/3, phpbb and WBBlite / wbb2 integrated as extern files, so i think, it would be "easy" (?) to integrate the SMF Usertable as well, and it would be nice to have this.
i don`t know but i thing these scripts have english lang. files, too..

just a idea.

SubDreamer is really nice, but you have to pay if you want anything more than the default install - either $125 for the full-blown version, or a much smaller fee for each theme/module you want. Still, if you don't mind paying, it's a great package.

integrating Drupal and Flashchat with SMF

Thanks very much for taking the time to put that together and sharing it. It's very useful!

I'm looking at adding Drupal to my site because it has a very unusual capability that I can't get any other way (and in fact, even to make Drupal do it will require some coding). But there's no way I'm switching away from SMF. I've very heavily modified the code to do some special things I needed for my site (post moderation, enhanced notification with improved formatting and the option of receiving all posts in email, and - most important (and hardest to code), paid subscriptions. Plus I use SMF authentication to control access to all member features and content on my site (not just the forum), and I use SMF templates throughout my site as well.

I'm getting ready to install Drupal now, and if I can get it to "stand on its head" so to speak (I described what I'm trying to do in a message I posted in the Drupal thread you linked to here), then I'll write a bridge between SMF and Drupal. Since the SMF database is the one that has to be in control (since subscription payments are linked to it), the modification will be to Drupal rather than SMF and I'll be publishing it there.

Someone in another thread mentioned name collisions with Drupal and SMF. That's true. I've already noticed two - both very heavily used: the variable $db_prefix, and the function db_query(). There are probably more. Ugh.

I've installed Flashchat on a lot of SMF boards already. It integrates quite well with SMF and the instructions packaged with it for integration + the FlashChat Integration post on these boards makes it a snap for any level user. While I haven't delved into it deep, it looks pretty customizable, and is fairly functional.

I installed FlashChat on my site (integrated with SMF) and it's very nice! marcnyc posted a helpful tutorial in the Tips & Tricks board on how to fully integrate it with SMF (even more tightly than what the FlashChat instructions provide for).

I had couple minor problems with FlashChat - one I fixed, one not. I described these and posted the fix in the Tips & Tricks thread here.

Exactly! That would be the answer to everything. I already use it just by itself for many portal-like functions. Just make it and take over the Internet.

Have you tried TinyPortal?  It works great with smf.  Bloc is doing a great job with this.

Why not release some of your mods to the community.  Just reading some of what you have done for your site, these are features that I would like to have on mine.  Including the pay site.  Just a thought...  The SMF community grows and becomes the best by people like yourself sharing what they do with other.  Hope you will...  Email me if you choose to, I will definately get them all.

Hi Greg,

Why not release some of your mods to the community.  Just reading some of what you have done for your site, these are features that I would like to have on mine.  Including the pay site.  Just a thought...  The SMF community grows and becomes the best by people like yourself sharing what they do with other.  Hope you will...  Email me if you choose to, I will definately get them all.

If I get the Drupal thing sorted out (I haven't had time to work on it, but I will soon), I'll release that. But it will be on the Drupal site because it will be a modification of Drupal, not SMF. (I'll announce it here.) The way I will integrate will be to use the SMF login for the Drupal site, rather than vice versa. It might seem more intuitive to make the Drupal login the one that rules (since Drupal is the CMF and SMF will plug into it), but Drupal has a built in hook for changing the login method, which SMF doesn't, so it's easier to modify on the Drupal side. Also, my paid subscription code is tied to the SMF login, and I prefer it that way because it doesn't lock me into a CMF.

The modifications I made to SMF (integrated paid subscriptions automated through PayPal IPN, post moderation, and enhanced notifications) were so extensive that really what I have here is a fork rather than a mod. My code modifies 39 SMF source files - some extensively, plus adds 20 source files (several of which are extensive), and 14 graphic files. Plus I modified several SMF database tables and added about six more to store customer and product info (my site has an online store as well as the forum). And I'd have to do even more work to put it in shape to release. When I need to change how something is configured, I go into phpMyAdmin or write a program, but that's not very user friendly. I'd need to add an administration tool.

In short, it would be a big investment in time and energy to release this and support it - a full-time job. I'm not independently wealthy so I can't work full time for free. The SMF license prohibits selling derivative works, but I could release it as an open source fork and charge for support as SMF does. The thing is, right now I'm involved in getting another business off the ground - the one i wrote this code for. But if that doesn't catch fire, I suppose I could release the fork instead. It would be ironic if releasing my fork turned out to be more profitable than the business that prompted me to write it, but the world is full of ironies.
