Hi all

I just downloaded and installed 1.9.3. I was under the impression that thi version was using the standard SQLMembership Provider with the standard database schema. The standard version uses GUIDs for the UserID but I see from the 1.9.3 database that the UserID is int?

Obviously if the userid was a GUID, incorporating YAF forum into my site would be much easier.

Am I missing something here?

Thanks

Yes. GUID is used -- just try it.

I am definately missing somethng - The UserID in the yaf_User table is int.

This is for version 1.9.3. Perhaps I havent installed something else? Are there new installation instructions for ver 1.9.3?

Thanks

What are you trying to do? Why aren't you just using membership -- YAF handles all the details automatically.

Hi

I have an existing database using membership - I need to pass to UserGuid to YAF when my user registers on my site. This is why I am looking for a UserID field in YAF that is a guid.

YAF will do this automatically for you. Basically the YAF_User table maps your memberhsip UID to our own UID which is ofc used throughout YAF.

Jaben purposefully built in a sync which will scan the membership table and add any neccessary users/group, thus you don't actually need to do the work yourself.

When I post FP:Mek 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 Ederon 🙂 )

Ok - sounds good ... now all I need to know is how to install it?

Do you anticipate any major changes (architecture or otherwise) between now and the final release of v1.9.3?

Nope architecture will remain the same as its been majorly revamped already for this version. Bug fixes mainly, with possibly an additional feature(s) thrown in.

OK - finally got back to sorting this - I see the guid in the user table, nice one. Now, how do I log my users in automatically -

Thanks
