Import mySQL & Prevent Registration
I have searched these forums and found some things relating to mySQL but nothing direct.
I am using PHP Fusion with a mySQL database and I already have registered users.
I am using the default forums that come with PHP Fusion.
I looked in Import and only saw the option to import. There is an export but I think that just exports that database of Vanilla forums. Besides, there is nothing to important since my Vanilla forums are cocnnected to the SQL database.
I have two questions.
1. How do I important users from my existing mySQL database (names, emails, etc.) into the Vanilla forums so they don't have to register to use the forums?
2. How do I prevent users from having to even sign up on the Vanilla forums but rather directing them to sign up using the register page for my website?
I looked in the Vanilla options but did not see anything. I also scanned through the downloads section and didn't find anything. So are these two things possible to do with Vanilla?
Seems to be the problem with external CMS applications. My visitors have already signed up once. I don't want a separate sign up for the forums either.
I could just use the default forums, but I liked the advanced build of Vanilla and all of its addons.
Thanks for your help!
