I never tried, but I guess it will work withou much effort. Just change the database configurations in database.properties file.

You'll need to make some legacy code. JForum's core is not prepared by default to allow what you need in current version. I want to have this feature in a near future, but can't tell you exactly when.


my login is also having a profile system which is similer to Jforum's..

The same problem as the login. But solving the first, you got this one working as well.

Yes, just open the correspondent .htm file ( post_show.htm ) and make the link tho the user profile. Easy stuff.

I also think that is easy.but the problom is,in JForum's properties file there is no room for specifying DBUsername and Password.only having URL specification.that does'nt working for me.if u hav a good solution,plz inform.i'll continue trying and,if worked,i'll inform u.

but i think there should be some some methods to set the username and password in javabeans classes that u r using to retrieve from textfields and storing in DB.plz inform me how to call that method and which class it resides,i'll do the rest.

i'll transfer my DB according urs.but i need login solution.then it's cool.

oh, right.. well, I'll release an update to this in the upcoming release.

Yes, the code needs some refactoring to allow this. For now, you can try hack the code to use your users table. I'll think about how to make it easy to configure in jforum by default, but cannot say to you exactly when I'll have it done.
