View Full Version : SMF Integration

June 21st, 2005, 04:48 PM
I see from the sales site and a search of these forums that integration with Simple Machines Forums exists for all PhotoPost products. What I'm wondering is how extensive that integration is:

- Can SMF styles and themes be used with the PhotoPost product it's tied to? And if so, without adjustment how well in practice does this end up looking?

- Does the user's SMF forum profile displace the one for PhotoPost?

- Are the comments for a photo on PhotoPost generated by the SMF engine, or PhotoPost's own comment engine?

We are strongly leaning toward using SMF and PhotoPost together (along with possibly ReviewPost) for a major project, and the answers to these questions might determine our final decisions. My thanks in advance to anyone who can shed any accurate light on these issues --

Okay lets see here

We use the style colors from smf as well as the smf login. it looks pretty darn good IMO maybe some SMF users will post there site url.

We have our own profile that displays since in photopost for example this is where user can modify there notifications subscriptions etc for photopost

We use our own comments script.

The integration is of the user login and stylesheet colors. We never modify any forum code or files in any of our integrations.
