This is a general question on how to approach a issue I am having with integrating this forum with another website.

I have a website, which is not a sharepoint site or portal in anyway and I want to integrate this forum into the site and have a single sign on.

After going through the code in yetanotherforum i saw that there is a function called IsCustom in Config.cs.

static public bool IsCustom
				return ( configSection ["CustomUserClass"] != null && configSection["CustomUserAssembly"] != null );

Im not sure the purpose of this function, but it seems to use the config file to find the name of a class / assembly so that later it can use reflection to create a instance of this class. Is the purpose of this to use a custom users class to integrating with other sites? If not, what is the best way to approach integration without tearing apart yetanotherforum and keeping its database separate?

I do not wish to do this in a half fast way, I would rather do it the right way even if it envolves coding alot.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Brandon Rohrer

I'm not familiar with the IsCustom property, but what is the issue you're having? What's your goal? I incorporated YAF with my custom app like this:

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 🙂 )
