Even I am looking for this type of solution. I already have a site where users need to login to access content. I want to include forum on this site, but there should not be separate login required for this forum - it should refer the original logging details from the parent site. I am not a techy as such, so a for-dummy solution would be appreciated. Thanks.

Depends entirely on whether your existing site uses asp.net membership or not? If its a .net site look in your web.config for MembershipProvider (open it up in notepad).

Easiest way is to setup YAF in a subdomain; this means you won't have mess around with merging the web.configs. Once you've setup the subdomain and copied the YAF files to it, you'd need to edit the web.config of YAF to use the same provider settings as your main application's web.configs provider settings.

In the install you can tell YAF to use an existing user as the admin rather than create a new one.

Because the membership, roles and profile providers will be changed on the YAF web.config to point to your existing site membership.
