Quote from: TarantinoArchives on January 28, 2006, 05:25:03 PMwow man, that's great work! thank you.but i am a bit scared to try it out. so it doesn't touch the SMF database, since it's basically just copying it into the MW db, right? and once there, it doesn't reflect any changes afterwards (like password changes)?and what about users that already exist in MW?
Quote from: TarantinoArchives on January 28, 2006, 05:35:19 PMas long it's not locking out the sysop (i.e.... ME !) then it won't be much of a problem....but really all i could screw up would be the MW, not the SMF db?
QuoteHello TLM.I read your post on the SMF website.There are a few things about how MediaWiki uses the external user database that I can help clear up for you. This is based on how I use the MW framework for my plugin.With the plugin installed. When a user logs into MW the first thing is does is check if the user is found in the MW user database. If the user is found it then checks the external database to see if the user is found there. Once the username is found in both places it then asks the external database for the users password and checks if it is the same as the one submited from the login form. It never checks the password stored in its own user database. So when a user changes their PHPBB password, the new password will be required to login into the wiki.I do not allow users to change the PHPBB password from with in MW.When a new user logs into MW and the username is not found in the MW database. MW checks if it is a valid user in the PHPBB user database. If it is then MW auto adds the user to the MW database and the default password is some made up garbage that is never checked in the future.When a user logs into MW and the username is found in the MW database but the user is not found in the PHPBB database. The user fails login.Settings up the sysops account:Install MW. Make a new username that matches the Admin username on the forums. Make it the sysops. Install the plugin. After the plugin working adding new sysops is done the normal way.As far as making a SMF version of the plugin. Just leave a reference to myself as the original author, a reference to http://uber.leetphp.com and follow the GPL rules and I'm ok with it.
