I have installed Mambo and got the look I like. I want to integrate a forum that will only be seen by registered users of Mambo. I don't like the Iframe wrapper idea but I want the forum to be inaccessible to non members. How would I do that so the forum can't be accessed directly. I am pretty weak with PHP but I can slap some code in a page.
Dreamhost here has integrated their forum in the way that would work for me. The only thing is that you have to login twice which is what I would like to avoid.
Right now I have a phpBB2 board. I am willing to purchase an Invision Powerboard or vBulletin license and convert. I like the vBulletin better. Phil Taylor www.phil-taylor.com has a connector for thirty-five pounds UK for the vBulletin connector. But I am wondering if there might be an alternative or at least get some helpful suggestions here.
