Is this possible? Mixing Other Website With Forum

Post by Hart on August 8th 2011, 2:23 am

So, I'm not even sure if this is possible (and it may be possible, but take a lot of coding), but I figured I would ask and see. If I were to make a site using this website: http://myadopts.com/ and it was my site, would it be possible (perhaps using the custom html pages?) to allow users to just register to my forum site and adopt pets from there? What I mean is I want members of my forum (http://forumhart.darkbb.com/) to be able to adopt pets from the myadopts site without leaving the forum or having to register with the myadopts site. Any ideas for this would be greatly appreciated! I hope I explained this well enough.

Thank you!

(Edit: Here is the link to my myadopts site, although it's not finished: http://pixelhart.myadopts.com/ Not sure if this is any help, but I figured I would post it. Thanks again for any help!)

Unless you have your own domain with DNS administration that can make a CNAME entrance to your Forumotion forum, it's not possible. I doubt that site allows that. Sad

I don't think you can because it has to do with database. Sorry TT

Yeah, I thought that was probably the case Smile Thanks for answering though, it was a big help! Hopefully I'll figure out a way to do something like this eventually (I know they have the codes for this kind of thing on a site somewhere). Anyway, thanks again for the replies Very Happy

well here is a very easy solution?
Just use a iframe.. of course they will still have to register/log in to the website separately,
So pretty easy and practical solution, but dose work.


Preview link
Code:

<iframe width="1024" height="950" src="http://pixelhart.myadopts.com/" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Blank Code
Code:

<iframe width="1024" height="950" src="YOUR PAGE LINK HERE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

you can always adjust the size and width, but i would keep it something that wold be best for all browswer and or monitors.

Also once you have it on a page, you can always add the html page link to your nav bar, or other place on your forum..Or create a custom nav bar to browse different pages along with whatever forum section links you would want to add. OR add the header and footer, that will put your forums navbar up as well.

So not sure if thats exactly what you was looking to do, but is relatively easy way.

oh hey and if you wanted to, you can even create it as a pop-out page, so say you have a link on your page, when clicked it would just pop-out at a decent size to see, but never leave your forum either Smile

Info added

Oh then i see you was saying you would like to have the be able to adopt pets right through your forum without being logged in or register to the website.

Well sure you can do that, but you would just have to create new html pages and add all of the same info and procedures you have on your website into new html pages.. i would have to understand how all of that works on your site, but i am sure a way can be figured out to still allow your members be able to adopt right from your forum. There would be no way to cross reference the data bases as one together, so just have to figure out the next best thing that would still work...

I'm pretty new to the wonders of MySQL, however, it is set-up on a games server I have. What it allows, is every member of my forum can input their in game name in a field, this is then grabbed to MySQL. MY games server, can then use the list to dynamically create a whitelist. I know it's not exactly the same requirement, but maybe something like this could work?

This is a big help, both of you Very Happy I was not expecting any more replies. I will definitely play around with the codes. Thank you so very much! Really, this is wonderful!

I'm not quite sure how to do this, but the code you provided was super useful Smile The data bases don't need to be together, I just wanted to give users the ability to adopt pets.

Thank you Very Happy
