That (openID) would also open up the possibilites of groups of XOOPS Admins banding together and securely sharing users and traffic, huh? Not a bad idea.

Debug is on, but no info on the white screen page/ register.php

Okay, I did all that. I needed to register another test user to see if it worked.

Now when I get to the last button to confirm the registration information it goes to a white screen.

That looks good, but it seems to be a little more than what I need right now. But what I need and what the community needs might be different, right? If it works, it works. If that's a permanent multi-site solution for XOOPS I say go for it! How would it work on xoops? I like the idea.... Then when anyone registers they would just register with the one site running the openID mod, and then the other sites would authenticate logins from that site, right? That sounds good. It would take a registration and login hack on all the sites involved I think, but when it comes to something like this, don't they all?

I would still like to hear if anyone thinks my idea from last night would work. A single registration writing to several user tables on several sites at once.

I am no coder. I can usually figure basic stuff out. I have been looking for a way to make several sites work off of one user database. None of the hacks have worked right so far. Now I have an idea.

I have been searching around and many XOOPS admins want users to be able to only have to register once and then be able to log in to multiple XOOPS sites.

My idea is this: Why use one user database? Why not create a simple module / hack that would register them to all of the user databases at once? Sure, it would have to be installed and configured on all of the sites. Sure, they might have to turn off the email confirmation on all of the sites but one...

Am I crazy?

I know I can probably write an .html form that can use the XOOPS register.php to register someone to an XOOPS site from another domain. Would it be possible to make a module that registers people to several sites from any site they sign up on? You could even then inform them of all the sites they now have access to in the one confirmation email.

If I knew more about .php I would try it. Can someone help by making this? I, and many other people here could use it.


Please?

I followed the instructions, and I shared the user database, but when I registered a test user it would only log in to one site.

Actually, I could use that myself. I need to display 2 gigantic database tables of old forum posts and news stories as an archive type of deal.

Actually, Access works quite well for mySQL. I'm using it now.

It's as simple as selecting columns, copying and pasting. Access auto-numbers rows for you, and linktables in access will update straight to the server.

Just find a module that will do what you need, install it, do a sample post, then open up the database, find the table with the sample post, then import your existing data one column at a time. Once it's set up with your data you can livelink it all and you're set.
