I am currently planning the development of a website along with a company I hired. Since I am a fan of IPS software, I am looking at ways to integrate fully the website with the board (and the rest of IP as well).
We plan to have not only shared member registration and login details, session data, etc., but also the articles published on the website so that they appear as forum discussions, and comments as posts.
Check here: http://www.everyeye....ecensione_17158 http://forum.everyey...howtopic=637425 , this is what we're aiming for with our website too.
I am looking at various methods for this: Single Sign-on, IP.Converge, IPBWI, the free API developed by Matthias Reuter. What do you think is the best solution for what we're shooting for?
Also, one of the developers came with this idea:
- the Main data storage (database) will be on IPB side. All topics and comments would be stored there. We would use API to display them on main website.
- First we would setup and configure IPB, then we would design categories structure in it and only then we will start to build main website.
- This because the main unit of data is "review" and there is no need to store it in both IPB and main website. So it will be stored on IPB and IPB's panel will be used to manage it. IPB already have all those features like "edit", "delete" etc so we will save time and focus on other features.
- Should we need to store something that does not exist in IPB we would create separate table with this data but it still will be linked to IPB posts.
Do you think this is feasible and if yes, how? Only with IP.Content, or is there some way without that as well?
Thanks in advance.
