Full Version: Linking site and forum membership/usergroups

Let's say I make a website that includes a forum. How can I make it so that membership on the website and membership on the forum are one and the same? Can this be done running MyBB? I know how to use MyBB, and I know how to make it a secondary page on a website, but not how to have a membership with the forum as well as the site.

One of the reasons I wish to make this so is because I'd like to have certain pages of the actual site blocked, and only allow members of the site with the permissions needed to view said pages. Basically, I want the membership and usergroups to apply to the site's permissions as well as the forums. But making two different memberships would be annoying. Any ideas, or perhaps other forum systems that work as well as MyBB but allow for this to work?

I want the forum to be an extension of the site; not a separate entity with a separate registration process.
Hmm can you please explain more about your question?

Is this what you're asking: site.com/home site.com/forum site.com/premium?
Let's say I have site.com, and site.com/forum would be the MyBB forum. How can I link the membership and usergroups to the main site? Or can this be done?

uCoz, for instance, allows people to make a site with registered members and have a forums page (theirs), and I can restrict not only forums people can see based on their usergroup, but also actual site pages as well.

No, I don't think so Sad I guess I'll have to figure out a way around this. That is, until MyBB just says fuck it and becomes a website design builder as well as a forum haha.
Haha well I wish you luck man. I'm not understanding fairly well what your asking. You can probably do what you need with page manager.
I think maybe he means bridging one board to another so members have access to both boards. And only sign in once..

Yes, this is basically it.
