Not Supported Code Changes Re-usable Code Translations Is in Beta Stage  

This is a feature requested many times, and we are still waiting, so I released a patch to be able to run many forums with the same user database.

This is an EXPERIMENTAL PATCH I'm running on my forums.

You can add "session" to $shared_tables if you want to share your sessions among forums under the same domain (Thanks Lionel)

This is only useful for new forums joining anothers one user database.

  • An old forum where all users are.
  • Sharing the same database, using diferent prefixes for tables (TABLE_PREFIX)
For example: Imagine we have FORUM_A , FORUM_B, and FORUM_C each one with their respective licenses.

FORUM A has table prefix FA_ in database, FORUM_B has FB_ and FORUM_C has FC_

FORUM A is the main, and older forum, where we have all our users.

then we would install FORUM_B and FORUM_C normally, using the same database that FORUM_A uses, but setting up their own table prefixes.

once FB_ and FC_ are installed then we go patching class_core.php from FORUM_B and FORUM_C setting up $main_prefix = "FA_"; so they use FORUM_A for shared tables.

Possible problems:
  • memcached issues?, not sure
  • avatar/signature pics/etc issues when storage is set to disk.
  • more to come...

I'm working on building a network of gaming forums and I think this would work perfect. I'm just making sure though.

I have two game forums. With this I could pretty much bridge them together so that a user registers on either forum and post on both?
