If I integrate my PhotoPost with my PHPbb forum... well, what exactly does 'integration' mean?
That users will be able to use their same username/password for the Photopost?

Will my Photopost and Phpbb forum be kept separate, or will they be merged together?
I guess some examples might work....
sorry for such newbie questions!

You can view sites in action here

Integration means different things for different products but with phpbb that would mean integrated user login and also the ability to pick up and use the user's forum stylesheet so the gallery can look similar to the forum.

Ok, so if I integrate Photopost with my forum, will I still be able to edit their style separately?
User logins working is great, but I want the design of Photopost to be separate from my forum's design/layout.

Also, will logins work both ways... If someone signs up with Photopost, they can use their login for the PHPbb? Does Photopost have anti-spam things such as image verification or requiring users to activate their account via email?

thanks again :)

when you integrate with phpbb the phpbb forum is used for registrations not photopost and yes you do not need to use the forum style if you dont want it.
