OVERVIEW: I am incorporating Snitz Forums 2000 into an existing portal written in ASP.
The portal utilizes a MySQL Database and I've configured the option for Snitz to utilize MySQL as well, a very convenient install I must say.
The portal has it's own existing member profiles, usernames and password, ect.
GOAL: Minimize account setup and signup for the form by utilizing existing account login data from the portal database.
Thoughts: I considered an Insert of the account data but am weary of by-passing the password encryption Snitz utilizes and is stored in: FORUM_MEMBERS.M_PASSWORD
At this time I am planning to pre-populate the Snitz Register form with data from the
portal profile and have the user submit the form to create the profile. Then the user can
move between the portal and the form, with each running it's own member enforcement.
But, I know their are a lot of people out there smarter then me, so I figured I'd ask.
I've attached Snitz page: register.asp as register.txt
