  • Importing fields from other databases

    Hi guys
    Thinking about purchasing the board and just wanted to ask two questions. I am a relative novice to web design so i will try to explain what i am after to the best of my ability. I plan to create a website where members are registered onto a database. Is it possible to copy users from my database into this forum database without the user having to register again for the forum. Also is it possible to set one of the custom fields (eg location, posts, which are displayed on the threads) to a field/variable from a seperate database on the webserver, so that data from other parts of my website can be seen as fields when a user is posting.
    Thanks

    It's possible but you would need to write your own script to do this.

      Very possible, as Steve Said, you would have to create your own script, or if your lucky you might find one around.

          I'm not a programmer but PHP looks pretty straight-forward to me.
