"sign in" external page

I'm new to Vanilla and I'm really happy with it !! ... I just need some help on what I'm trying to achieve : basically, I want to integrate Vanilla with another site. I've installed **jsconnect **and it works fine, the only thing is that when user clicks on "Sign In", I would like to redirect to the login page of the external site.

In the jsconnect _admin page, the connection configuration page allows to define a "_Sign In Url" but when I set an url here, it seems to have no effect (e.i. the Vanilla "Sign In" popup is displayed).

Actually, I have the same question with the "Sign out" : I changes it to my external site logout page, but it seems to have no effect.

Any help will be appreciated.


(I'm using Vanilla 2.1.3)


  • Raoul, do you still have this problem? Because I'm new too and use 2.1.8 (it's the latest version, I guess) and I have exactly the same situation like you.

  • Hi,
    Yes, I could not get it to work. I think it's just not implemented !

    So I did the following.
    For the sign out url, I have create conf/bootstrap.after.php and in this file, I have "overloaded" the global functions like "SignOutUrl". Basically I've added :

    if (! defined('APPLICATION'))
    if (! function_exists('SignOutUrl')) {
        function SignOutUrl($Target = '')
            return 'http://localhost/my_sign_out&TransientKey='.urlencode(Gdn::Session()->TransientKey());


    You can pass the TransientKey if you needed.

    For this Sign In, I have just forced user to use my site (they cannot sign-in in Vanilla forum page). I'm new to Vanilla too and I'm probably not doing it the "right way" but it's acceptable solution (until I finde a better one).

    Good luck
