User self-authentication via email (and porting other BB databases)?
I searched the forum here for something similar, but I found only one small topic about it and little else. I thought I'd throw this out there.... Just a quick idea for either an extension or something to integrate into future versions of Vanilla, is a method for users to authenticate themselves via email like a lot of other BB systems do with a registration link of some sort or another. I work with the webmaster of a major anime convention and we're considering other bulletin-board systems other than phpBB. Vanilla is right now at the top of our list while we test it out. But the thing is we have several hundred people that use the forums and more join every day. We don't want to have to deal with approving new members all the time so we were wondering if there was an extension that exists to do just what I'm talking about or if I need to start looking into making my own. Second thing is a way to port other databases from other BB's. For example, we're using phpBB as mentioned. Should we switch to Vanilla, is there an extension or a utility already out there to port an entire database from that system to Vanilla?
