  • Using customer info from business for forum membership?

    Looking into the possibility of starting a forum that can only be used by customers that already have an account with our company. I would like the BB to get its login data from the company's website DB. Is this easily done? I am also wondering if it is possible to filter Polls from the customer database. Specifically, I would like to put up polls about particular products but limit the participants allowed to vote in the poll to those that have purchased the product in the last X months. Is this kind of integration possible?

    Integrating vBulletin with a non-vB member system would require a rather extensive modification of the code. Of course, we cannot provide official support for code modifications. What most people do is modify their current system to use the vB member system.

    Either way the place for help with this would be over at the mod site:

    Once you register you can post in the Pre-Sales forum there.
