Topic: Full Integration with website
EDIT: Oh well, nevermind. I took a better look at the whole thing and, while it is really interesting and lightweight, it requires too much tinkering to satisfy my needs. Please delete the topic.
I want to integrate PunBB with my website, and I want it to be really strong two-sided integration. I am not asking for complete solution because I can manage it myself, but let me phrase some ideas and my questions related to them:
1. I am rather confident I will have to modify some of the core files to get the functionality I want, which makes me wonder how then am I supposed to work with fixes of punBB? Say, if there are some critical security vulnerabilities founds, any hints? I believe I could manage and implement it all by myself but that is an additional load of work.
2. I want to replace the dblayer with my implementation. It would be as simple as forwarding the query function to mine query function it would seem, but can I expect any other problems here?
3. I would like to replace the session mechanism used currently by punBB with the one my site is using (with some modification of course). Again, anything strange I might encounter here?
I think these are the first questions I'd like to ask, more will certainly come. I've also found this document: http://punbb.informer.com/docs/dev.html, is it outdated?
