General Discussion / Let's Party!!!
« Last post by Gorefiend on March 24, 2019, 01:20:06 AM »
There is a very old idea. To meet alltogether. in Wurm (don't be afraid, you won't have to leave your sofa), at some place, to have some drinks, to chat, and so on. Main question is - do we want this? If yes - details will follow. The question here is only in general, are we up to this, or no?

Wurm Online Discussions / Say it how it is

Personally, I'm reading the official forums of Wurm and I see sensible posts being hidden. It's my personal opinion that the Wurm team is not doing a good job at letting people express ANY sort of concerns about them or what they're doing without taking offense, which is really unprofessional. I want to give you guys a chance to vent without censorship by the Wurm team. Say it how it is.

[23:52:05] You fall into a trance. Is it really the same river the next time you step into it?

It IS a good question.

This looks cool, but probably needs tons of work! I'll look into it.

last update was as 2 years ago. in those times it was working. but afterwards there were new releases of SMF and WP as well, and here the catch is expected. i'm pretty sure, that we cn handle this, my concern is regarding a little bit another question.

we will have to change the "paradigma" of the site. currently we can only look at domain (main site which is uncanny-legion.net), and we are registering and logging into a subdoman (.../forum). more logically would be to register and login and main site, and if you want to go to the forum - you will be redirecting and authorized authomatically. that makes sense, but this brings out another question: what to do with existing forum users? can we copy them to wp database? if not, that will mean wipe, we will hape to start everything from scratch. that needs more deep investigation at tables level. basically, i believe, we can do it, the question is to find out how exactly. speaking technically, our current "master-source" is forum data. if we are moving authorization to WP, we're changing "master-source", and we will have to find a way to replicate existing data somehow, otherwise we will lose it.

so, main problem here is not how to install it (piece of cake), but how to prevent data loss and keep existing users.

regarding #2. found one interesting thing: WP2SMFBridge

This plugin will do these following tasks:

If a user log in WP, then that user will be logged in SMF.
If a user logout in WP, then that user will be logout in SMF.
If a user created/register/change password in WP, those actions happen on SMF!
Users that are created in SMF can be used once disabled WP plugin.
V2 work with old WP users!

something tells me though, that this won't work from scratch.

This looks cool, but probably needs tons of work! I'll look into it.

2. add smth like captcha or email verification as one of the registration steps. that would significantly limit spamming bots in topics

A real neat version of captcha added.
