basically, I wanted to make an oekaki on my site (see a test run here) - I intend to re-install when this issue is sorted), but I wanted it to share the registrations of my forum, to avoid users having to sign up twice.

The oekaki sysyem asks for the table on the database where the users are stored (which shouldn't be too hard once I get there, i think), and for a couple of letters that I think it referred to as the encryption key (this needs to be the same as my forum, so that passwords can be secure yet shared) - is there any way of retrieving this encryption data now, after my myBB forum is set up (I've forgotten what it was set to Sad)
I actually tried to do this at some point. More of a pain in the butt than it's worth.
so you don't know any way of me changing the key on my myBB or anything like that?
No I do not.
Take a look at what I posted here: http://community.mybboard.net/thread-643...#pid462142

It won't be exactly what you have in mind but it will allow you to have two seemingly seperate forums with a common member base and would be much easier than trying to combine the user tables.

but I'm not combining two myBB forums - it's a forum and an oekaki, made with completely different software...
Oh, an easier way to do it then is to write a script that first adds all your existing members to your MyBB database then do what I suggested here: http://community.mybboard.net/thread-666...#pid480759
Not the most efficient bridging technique but probably the easiest and safest.
thanks all - fixed now
