I have used forums and coppermine integrated before and I did not like it. The user admin stuff went to the forum and left me hating that I made the change. I would love to find a simple forum that just uses the photopost security login and password from that pp_users table and nothing else is needed. In other words. I could install a forum and then tell it to use the security in photopost for access. So that they are technically two different products and not a meshed product working together. Do you know of any way to do this currently. My site Astronomy Astrophotography Galaxy Nebula Astrophoto Gallery - Astrophotogallery
is about photos first and forum is a second by much less used functionality. I just need basic forums like different categories and thats pretty much all I need. I wish you included this with your message board, but I do understand why you dont. Any ideas on what I could use without loosing the photo post that I like a lot.
