CB Integration Official Thread 10 Years, 10 Months ago  
Hi folks! First let me congratulate the FB team on what looks to be the perfect Joomla-forum combination. This is, hopefully, going to persuade many SMF/vB users like me to convert to FB.

I\'ve just went through the boards here, and realized lots of people have issues and questions regarding integration with Community Builder, so I think we should start an \"official thread\" and group all these requests together. Hopefully the FP team will consider this seriously, because CB integration is, without a doubt, [b]very important[/b]. :laugh:

I\'ll start with a few:
- Include a \"Sync\" button in FB\'s backend that populates FB\'s tables with simple user information so that admins can add these users as forum moderators/administrators etc.
- Allow admin to display certain CB fields in thread list view, below the avatar.
- A \"full-featured\" CB plugin that allows users to manage subscribed threads, preferred view types etc. Basically, to allow users to control/edit everything in FB\'s profile management, short of avatar, which is already synced with CB\'s avatar.

If anyone has a good idea for CB integration, please add on to here! Sticky please? ;)

Joomlaboard / Simpleboard used to have a CB plugin that created a tab in the user\'s CB profile, showing their latest posts. I\'d think that would be the place to start. I\'m attaching a copy of the plugin for your review.

Re:CB Integration Official Thread 10 Years, 10 Months ago  
Well, I have to say, the things that CB offers me, and I\'m a current user of the CB/JB combo, are not indespensible. I would much prefer to have a clean, setup with no user bridges etc. Less to go wrong in the event of failure. So if FB provided all the things that CB offers, I\'d be more than willing to drop CB. Currently I\'m running JB/Jim/CB/JACL plus.. multiple points of failure, multiple points of trouble shooting. Yuk.

I see that last posts, and forum stats are already in FB, and if user profiles added last posts, and AIM, MSN, SKYPE, etc Icons, and img gallery, I see no reason to use CB.

I see they are working on adding groups, etc, so I will be able to drop JACL plus soon (sigh of releif)

However, a lot of people use cb for more than just the features I\'m talking about so integration is very necessary.

By the way, what is the PM system here? Just curious.

You\'re certainly correct to say that lots of people use CB for more than just the handful of features you pointed out :P I\'m a 3rd party CB plugin developer, and I have to say when done properly, the potential is CB is near limitless.

One should note that this topic isn\'t necessary, or restricted to, issues on \"bridging\" FP with CB. The point is these 2 components are already \"bridged\" with with Joomla framework. What I would think is more important is for certain CB features to be part of the generic FB release (such as displaying CB fields in thread view). Many people (including me) are probably going to come up with rough hacks to implement this (which was how I did it with SMF), but I believe such a feature should bring these 2 indispensible \"community\" components together tighter still.

And don\'t forget the \"Sync users\" button :P

My main \"complaint\" (if you can even call it that) with the current JB plugin is that the signature input area does not have BB tags controls like you see in FB/JB\'s generic signature input area. I was hoping someone might implement this since it\'s a new beginning ;) Would save me alot of time doing it myself.
