The naming problem is caused by utf8_bin COLLATE, so it's not joomla's fault. You need not change it if you won't use Asia characters in the username.Also I think the naming structure is because joomla switched to UTF-8 (Am I right on this...) or is something else causing that case sensitivity.
Do you think in the future you will not have to log in and out to sync the account and propagate the permissions?
I think that too.fuzi wrote:I don't think we need bridge bwtteen joomla and phpbb.
my joomla sites, usually several core people could log on and post/edit contents, and phpbb forum, every body could register and post. if somebody want to post some thing on main site, they usually sendd email or just post it on forum.
also to most of people it's still hard to submit and edit articles on joomla.
And yes, it is a custom made site specially for phpBB - but entirely based on phpBB.cjneely wrote:Also, my users don't need to log into Joomla. The only password protected areas are needed for the Board of Directors, Advisory Board members, and Staff members, and this can be done on the phpbb.
As I was reading through these posts, I realized that what I need is something like this (http://www.phpbb.com) website. The header is consistent (the artwork change is nice), the forum is built in and yet there are other content pages. So my question now is: What is phpbb.com using? Is this a custom made site or is it made by intergrating certain software?
I'd love to know, because this format looks perfect for my needs. Any ideas?
