How do I log into SMF from my application?

I saw a lot of posts in late 2019 addressing this but I also saw that a lot of updates were going to fix it. I'm still having issues with this. I use these programs on Site Ground. Can someone help?

I am trying to integrate my website and the forum. I want to do all the login/logout/registration from my website. Can I still do this with these deprecations or are they critical?

You might want to consider upgrading to a newer version of SMF as you're just a few versions behind (2.0.18 is the current version of the 2.0.x branch). I can't remember off-hand if you can upgrade straight to 2.0.18 or if you have to upgrade to each version in turn until you get to 2.0.18

Where can I get the latest?

I thought SiteGround automatically updated the PHP but I manually set it to php 7.4 so now I have to get the updated API.

Two people in this thread has said the API has not been updated and neither person pointed to where the updated one is, nor directed me on how to solve my problem.

CoderLanie

Can someone point me to the files and guide on how to log into SMF from my third party application?

I have tried the API files from 2011 to no avail and no one has given me links or resources on to an updated one so I will ask directly:

how do I do the above?

Illori

we dont have a more updated version of the API beyond what is in that topic.

CoderLanie

Okay, that's unfortunate. I made a separate thread but how do I login into SMF from my application without an updated API? Are these functions available in the updated versions without having to add files?

shadav

that would probably depend on what applications

did you looked into the Bridges and Integrations board?

or posting into the Help Wanted (not for support) board if it is something that you need custom made

CoderLanie

That first board has the 2011 file which I was told was outdated by two people.

And I would like to learn how to code this myself.

I just need to a tutorial or something.

I am honestly confused (and frustrated) why i'm not getting direct answers.

CoderLanie

This is the third thread in which I am simply asking:

how do I register/login/logout from my third party application?

The file from 2011 is outdated.

Where is the newest file?

shadav

you do realise by creating all of these different topics, you are actually making it more difficult for anyone to answer you....and well you'd more than likely get the same answers that were already posted in your other threads....

(and on that note, I'm going to merge all 3 together so that you do not get repeat answers)

that being said, again that would probably depend on what applications....and since you already said you are wanting to learn how to do it yourself, then we would really need to know what applications so that others could point you into the right directions

Posting 3 times the same thing is only going to annoy whoever reads them, historically speaking. People here devote their free time to answer you, if you post 3 times impatiently it drastically reduces any willingness to reply :)
That said, you don't just "hurr durr login", you update the software entirely in order to work with the new functions. It's like a puzzle, you can't simply throw pieces from another puzzle in and expect it to work. Update to 2.0.18 via
Large Upgrade (removing mods in the process) or by Patching (keep mods but have to install each version progressively.

EDIT: partially ninja'd, as you can see.

It's so powerful that on this post and even in the two PMs you sent me,you still answered my question very quickly and you're apologizing for the delay. You're the #1 support I've probably ever encountered man, so much respect for that. Thank you, and get better soon.

I'll keep this in my siggy for a while just to remind me that someone appreciated what I did while others didn't.

Posting once and getting vague answers such as "that code is outdated" with no one pointing directions is equally as annoying.

If I need to updated software entirely, I need directions on what information I need.
If the API from 2011 is outdated, then what are people using?
If SMF has been updated where the functions are available, what information do I need to pass through?

If I have to update my entire application, I need to know the info

To be clear... the answers weren't vague.

You asked "why does this not work?"
You were told "the API is not designed to work with newer versions of php"
You asked "where is the updated api?"
You were told "there is no update available."

How is that in the least bit vague??
It might not be what you wanted to hear, but it is definitely not vague.
