Separate jforums for separate users

Hi,

We are trying to integrate jforum with our existing application. When a user logs in and goes to jforum, we want the user to be able to see just his categories, forums etc.. If you have attempted to implement this, we would appreciate any information you can offer us. We assume this would involve changing the database table schema to include an additional column that distinguishes between different users' forums/categories. Is there a way to add code changes to JForum so the changes are easy to maintain? For example, if we put in extensive code changes and if there are bugfixes or new releases at your end, we want to be able to preserve our changes even after "getting" your new code. Thanks!

Well, let's start from the beginning: do you want to allow users to create its own forums and categories, or do you want to restrict him access to only certain forums and categories?

Rafael,

We would like to have users create their own forums and categories. Also, I have misplaced my password for the jforum forums and am unable to log in. I did not get an email with instructions to reset my password. Could you please help me with that? Thanks.

Rafael,

To be more specific. When the user logs in to our application, he can see one or more course tabs. Clicking on each tab goes to each course. We want each to course to have their categories and forums. Some users will have the ability to create these and some will not. In either case, the categories and forums for a single logged in user will be different for each course (similar to having a separate Jforum instance per course). Thank you.
