phpBB and The Citadel
« on: May 31, 2002, 07:10:40 PM »
To be more convenient to everybody, and to me too, I think I am going to incorporate the bulletin board into The Citadel.

Why you ask?

It is all PHP and MySQL based making it fairly easy to incorporate.
More secure passoword and user information storage. Requires the only info I need leaving the rest up to the user.
Wanted to use avatars and this already has everything set up to do that.
Makes the news updates on the frontpage brainless.
Only have to log in once to the forums and the website.

Overall it will be a farily seemless integration of the two. I will recode phpBB to match the site and do a couple other things I would like so hopefully it will all mesh together very nice. I love open source.
