Hi!

I'm currently working on Lut�ce (a j2ee portal app) and I'd like to integrate it with JForum.
But the documentation on customization and integration is still in progress.

When will the documentation be available? Can you give me some hints ?

Thanks in advance, and thanks for your work on JForum!

For customization and integration, the most necessary informations should already be avaiable, and theres many topics in the forum covering this ...

- create a copy of the "default" template and customize the files in the copied directory - this will be your custom layout/design
add the template_dir property to the jforum_custom.conf file to overwrite the setting in the systemglobals.conf (default is set to "default") ... so that your new template folder will be loaded

- to integrate external login informations to jforum, search for SSO - and look up the SSO sample files in the sources of jforum to get a clue on how it's done ...

That's all I needed to integrate JForum into an existing web applicatoin. Not sure if there's (much) more necessary for integrating it into a portal app ...
