hi everybody
i'd like to have 2 forum and to share the user of each one. i know that it can be so difficult but have anybody any idea about how to do it??
the reason of all this is to give a person the privilige of managing his own forum inside my forum.

thanks a lot for your help
regards

Reading this topic, i see that it is not possible.

This indeed can not be done with a vanilla phpBB installation due to the way phpBB handles sessions and related data. It will always overwrite certain data when switching between the boards and with that cause various issues.
Thanks
