I am building a website that needs a forum. YAF looks great :)

I think I can integrate yaf by making default.aspx use my master page.

I already have a database of users and register/login stuff. I would like to use this as the primary authentication mechanism.

My question is: is this supported? I don't want to reinvent the wheel...

There is documentation on this and information throughout the site. To sum it all up...

1. If your existing membership system uses the ASP.NET Membership Framework then you're in luck, you can integrate YAF easily.

2. If you built your own membership system, you'll either want to convert it to use the ASP.NET Membership Framework or manually merge your data into YAF using scripts or whatever.

When I post fp:mddubs in a topic, I'm leaving my footprint there so I can track it once I get into coding/supporting. (Yes I stole this off Mek 🙂, who stole this off Ederon 🙂 )
