how to integrate FluxBB or SMF into Processwire?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I need a very simple forum for the website I'm planning to build on Processwire. I tried to run Apeisa's Discussion module, but when I clicked on "reply" or "another reply" links, I get a "404 Page not found" message although I can see my messages added when I click on the "submit" button. I could not go further. As a beginner in PHP and other programming languages, I find it hard to find out what could be wrong.

So I read a little further and found some people mentioned about the integration of FluxBB or SMF, but there was no instruction how to do that. Is it possible to elaborate a little on this and guide me through?

Thank you.

Hi seedle, welcome to the forums.

 

I need a very simple forum for the website I'm planning to build on Processwire. I tried to run Apeisa's Discussion module, but when I clicked on "reply" or "another reply" links, I get a "404 Page not found" message although I can see my messages added when I click on the "submit" button. I could not go further. As a beginner in PHP and other programming languages, I find it hard to find out what could be wrong.

 

I think you should post that to the support board of the module. This way there is a big chance that the modules author read it and can respond to it.

I haven't integrated third party programms into PW myself, but I think it could be more work to do than to get the discussion module running. But I'm not sure on this.

Did you create all the required .php template files, as per these instructions?

I have used this in a couple of sites without problems, so as horst says, it should be an easy fix to get this working. Whether it suits your needs is another story - it is a very basic (but effective) forum.

Actual proper user integration with other forum software will be much more complicated. You could potentially install some and style to match your PW site though with less effort.

Here is a recent thread that might want to start following as Pete is looking to possibly build some forum integration:

Yes. I created the .php templates so I can see my messages being added. Just when I click on the "reply" and "another reply" links, they give me 404. Horst, I take your words and I think Discussions module would be enough for me if I figure out the problem with these two links. Any more ideas why they give me 404?

No sorry, I don't know it, - but I once again recommend to post this into the support board of the module. This way there is a big chance that the modules author read it and can respond to it.

(thats why the support board exists!)  ;)

Also, maybe check the full 404 status in firebug or similar (i.e. path/to/page/xxx not found etc.) That should give you clues I suppose..

I actually don't know what you mean by the "reply" or "another reply" links - I only have the submit button. Can you attach a screenshot of the links you are clicking on and then the url of the page that produces the 404 error, as well as describing the page tree that you see when you browse the forum posts in the admin. I am sure we can figure it out from there.

      Not really sure where to post this, but I routinely receive a 502 Bad Gateway with the forums after I refresh. If I refresh after the error, the forum loads but the sidebar widget with "latest" posts is gone and just the user list is there. After a 2nd refresh, it loads normally. Has anyone else experienced this issue before or is the forum just being stubborn for me.

      For the last week or so, a number of accouts have started to post status updates with (mostly) unrelated content. I've checked out the submission histories of ~20 of them, and none of them has a recent post. They were registered long time ago and made several status updates over time. I started noticing them after the last week's forum update. Something about it allowed these status updates to surface, and now around ~10-15 updates are posted daily, which is enough to flood the activity stream.
      Is anyone else bothered by this?
      These are from the last 24 hours

      I'm having this issue for the last week or so. When I sign in, I make sure to check "Remember Me" box, but it doesn't seem to change anything. My account gets logged out after an hour or so, even more frequently on my smartphone. Issue persists in different browsers and devies. 
      I am using a VPN (actually a ShadowSocks proxy) but how I connect shouldn't matter, because session cookies are sent with each HTTP request
      Does anyone know what's happening and how I can stop this?
      This is how cookies look when I log out

      This is after logging in

      Cookies seem to be set correctly, their expiration is set to 3 months later, but it expires anyway.

      I guess this is the right place to post this. Just this morning I went to like an answer someone had given, and was met with a popup stating: "Unable to give reputation to this user". Has anyone encountered this before, or is there some "cap" on users with a certain ratio (reputation to posts) that is keeping me from providing reputation. It was not a big deal, but I wanted to give credit to where credit was due.

      Hi all,
      I discovered Processwire a little over a week ago and have been playing around with it ever since.  Going through the tutorials, creating templates, pages, etc. and see what a nice system it is.  However, I'm led to believe that's it's not meant for user-centric sites, and by that I mean a site where you expect to have hundreds/thousands of users and expect them to log in, update their profiles, submit content, create galleries, message each other, chat in the Forum, get email notifications, etc. etc., you get the idea.  
      I was trying to update the Profile page last night by adding fields for First Name, Last Name, Profile Pic, and a bunch of others and realized that it's not that easy to do.  There's not even a template.php file for the Profile page.   Am I just not seeing it because I'm so inexperienced with the CMS?  Or, is Processwire really geared more towards sites where not much user interaction is expected?
      thanks,
      Ray
