I am new to phpBB so I am posting questions to learn more. I am in need of community forum software where users can register and login. I am also in need of building a website with many pages that integrates with the authentication of the community forums (if possible). When I look at the home page for https://www.phpbb.com/
, I see several pages (About, Downloads, Customise, Support...) and I also see the community forums appears to be built in to the site and not two separate websites.
I am looking for a web framework or starter project that enables me to develop one to many custom pages, and have a community forums, and allow users who login/register with the forums to also access the pages of my website via authentication/authorization. Is phpBB a solution that will allow me to do all of this? Or is phpBB a solution that is only the community forums portion of my needs?
I have seen other websites that appear to be built in WordPress but their forums is a separate site like vBulletin. When I look at the https://www.phpbb.com/
site, the additional pages as well as the forums all seem to be one integrated site.
Thanks for any help!
