It would have its own dbtables, wouldn't handle user registration/editing, would have special-purpose functions to help nest threaded conversations and the like, maybe even do BB code and offer smiley completion and stuff like that... wouldn't have its own pages but could have "stubs" ready and waiting.

If it doesn't exist (and I don't see how it couldn't), I may just write something. It would be nice to have _something_ reusable, eh?

Something simple. Something happy. Something that integrates with existing sites (and databases) to the point where you don't realize it's an integration. I'm talking _seamless_. Eh?

Eh?

Yes, the woe is mighty and thick, and very filling, though it must rage against the frustration I've built as well.

Three hours, and I started to see how very bad it was, what I was trying.

Had the template integrated beautifully.

Accounts were a different matter entirely.

I think it would have been faster to rebuild my own code to use the phpbb user tables than to hack at phpbb to use my user table.

Fucking hell!

He ended up going the same route, trying to use the phpBB userdb with fresh code, after discovering what a mess the stuff that was there was. I don't think he ever entirely succeeded, but he put a good try into it...
