Extension Idea: LDAP Lookup
I use Vanilla as the Forum for my college at University. Within University there is a LDAP Server which is useful for looking up students, lecturers and staff and provides information such as their phone number, email address, username, department/course and homepage URL. I'm familiar with PHP and had a quick play with creating a test extension based on the examples on the documentation, it looks fairly easy to add elements to the sidebar for example, however I haven't got a clue how I would go arround adding a completely new Search function (eg. so you can enter your keywords on Search.php, but then select a new 'Directory' option). How exactly would this be achieveable in an extension? Thanks, Alex
