Questions before purchase

Recommended Posts

1) Yes.
2) Yes, this can be done in IP.Content with feed blocks (or possibly in the built-in portal if you don't need it to be too complex).
3) I don't think this can be done with a separate database, but almost all content in IPB and all the applications (including pages in IP.Content) can be restricted based on a person's usergroup in IPB. Was there anything specific you were thinking of?

And yes, that price is correct :)

3) Can we use different user DB and provide access to resource based on their DB? for example a tab visible only by customers another only by employees.




This can be done but would require custom coding on your part.

IPB supports custom login modules (admin/sources/loginauth/ folder contains the default ones). You could create a custom login module that would allow you to authenticate off of a remote database (the "external" folder contains a basic example of how to do this), and within your custom module you could check a remote database column to verify their user group, and then set their IPB user group based on their usergroup in your external database.

Hi Bactalan
thanks for the input.

Do you have site example, tutorial links for the ~#2
for #3 our goal is to create a community portal for customers and prospects. We would like to propose shared materials but also resources only available for customers. Perhaps there is a way into the profile fields to store this info and to personalize the code to make it possible...

Thanks Brandon,

I've just explained to Bactalan the purpose of different DB. Perhaps you have work around to achieve that easily.
Do you propose custom coding services or do you know someone that offers this kind of services?
