That would be great. Things become significantly more difficult when you have to reverse engineer to figure out how to get it to work.nicofuma wrote:For now there isn't any API. You would have to use a crawler to navigate through the forum. Someone else was working on an API a while ago but it never went so far mainly because it is hard due to our current auth system.

Code: Select all
I don't understand. Those are core functions of phpbb and therefore I should not be able to interact with them from outside the forums environment with a bot... Right?australianwriters wrote:If you know the forum and (if appropriate) topic IDs (which you can get with trivial ease), you don't need to crawl anything or fake the log-in process.
