Invision Community & Laravel


Go to solution Solved by Askancy,

Hello everyone,

I come to you because I have a question concerning my integration.

I have User Control Panel made with Laravel (mydomain.com)
And Invision Community as Forum (forum.mydomain.com).

What I would like to accomplish :

  • If the user is not logged in, he's redirected to the default Invision Community login handler.
  • If the user is logged in, he's also logged in on Laravel (mydomain.com) and Forum (forum.mydomain.com)
  • Have the ability to retrieve user informations (core_members) from the Laravel (username, avatar .. etc)

How can I accomplish this? (and in a secure way)

Thank you ! :)

I for my project with Laravel 9 decided to use the user management of IP.Board, the user logs in from the forum and has full access also to the portal in Laravel, like commenting articles.

To make Laravel communicate with IP.Board just call the file init.php in AppServiceProvider.php

class AppServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
{

    public function register() {
        //
    }

    public function boot()
    {
 
        $path	= base_path('../forum.***.ext/');
        require_once $path . 'init.php';

        view()->composer('*', function ($view) {
          \IPS\Session\Front::i();
        });

To get user data on a laravel blade I use:

{{\IPS\Member::loggedIn()->name}}

I hope this can be a starting point to help you develop what you want.

Hi, thank you for your reply.

I have already tested this solution :

public function boot()
{
    $path = base_path('../forum.vice/');
    require_once $path . 'init.php';

    view()->composer('*', function ($view) {
      \IPS\Session\Front::i();
    });
}

I'm logged in the forum but in Laravel blade I got token like "4d99edd69d5019629c6a37e13382fd0e" when I call :

{{\IPS\Member::loggedIn()->name}}

Do I have to do anything else ? About session or cookie domain ?

Thank you 🙂

1. Keep in mind that Laravel won't take care of the proper output, so language string keys will be returned as hashes.

4d99edd69d5019629c6a37e13382fd0e is probably the hash for "Guest".

 

Yeah but it's the same in the AppServiceProvider like :

dd(\IPS\Member::loggedIn()->name);

As Daniel said, that hash indicates that the user is not logged in. Check cookies if the cookie is saved correctly.

I did the integration years ago so I don't remember precisely, but you will see on the IP.Board constants.php file you have to indicate the Cookie Domain and the path, here is my configuration:

\define( 'COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'MainDomin.ext' );
\define( 'COOKIE_PATH', '/' );

Because otherwise IP.Board cookies will be only for the subdomain
