[Request] ZenCart integration with phpbb3

Post by austin881 » Thu Apr 10, 2008 2:17 pm

There are quite a few topics on this and a huge demand for this but I've been searching for weeks and it doesn't seem that anyone has come up with a successful solution. I've not even found a formal request posted for a mod that does this.

What we would like to see is ZenCart integrate with phpbb3. Currently ZenCart version 1.3.8a has an option to provide linkage with phpbb but it does not function correctly with phpbb 3.0.0. It does however function with phpbb2 versions.

The ideal solution would be when a user registers an account with either system (Zen or phpBB) that the registration information would be carried over to the other database as well. Basically I'd like to have a community forum that members have the ability to purchase items without creating another account in the shopping cart system. This could also work the other way too. When a user creates an account within the Zen shopping cart system the account information would be carried over to the phpBB system.

It seems that ZenCart 1.3.8a already has this ability this, it just has not been brought current to work with the latest version of phpBB 3.0.1. (Yes, I'm posting this MOD request at ZenCart's forum as well). So from the other end... I would like to see a MOD that sends the phpbb registration information over to ZenCart's database. Anyone?

Not that I know of. If you'll notice, it hasn't even been responded to.

I'm interested in this too. But am curious as to how it would work. ZenCart using email and password for login. phpBB uses an "username" and password. So if someone registers via ZenCart, will a username get automatically generated?

There is a default class in zen-cart for phpBB2 integration it appears. -- committed in late 2006. So one could simply update that class file to work with the new phpBB3 functions and user integration.
