mxBB Portal/CMS & G2
|Posted: Sat, 2005-10-08 11:47|
The G2 "module" for mxBB will integrate G2 smoothly into the portal/cms environment, without modding any G2 files. The user and group syncronization is done runtime and no adminCP administration is needed.
mxBB defines a G2 "mxBB users" and "mxBB admins" group and adds users as soon as they visit a embedded Gallery page. mxBB admins automatically get G2 admin rights and mxBB users get G2 user permissions.
The G2 imageBlock (recent, random album/image etc) is also implemented for mxBB, with all imageBlock settings integrated with the mxBB userCP and cache.
See a demo here (swedish page)

The G2 module for mxBB will be officially availabe at the mxBB project site (www.mxbb-portal.com) once mxBB 2.8 is stable enough to be released. Current mxBB (2.7.6) do not have the G2 module - only the G1.x module available.

P.S. Will this do as a sticky?
