Integration with forums and CMS
People registered and logged onto your forum/CMS enter the chat with their usernames directly, without a login prompt. Currently BlaB! WS Pro can be integrated with:
- IPS Suite (v4.x)
- phpBB3 (3.1+)
- Simple Machines
- vBulletin (v5.x)
- Woltlab Suite
If you would like to integrate with another forum/CMS - contact us prior to placing your order.
BlaB! WS Pro is NOT a Module, Plugin, Add-on. It does NOT touch your forum/CMS installation so that you can upgrade it easily and even switch BlaB! WS Pro to work with another, e.g. you can remove phpBB and install vBulletin and by replacing a couple of variables, BlaB! WS Pro will recognize your vBulletin users the same way it did it with phpBB. The registration/login part of BlaB! WS Pro still exists. It depends on your settings whether people are allowed to register new BlaB! WS Pro accounts.
You can import user groups from your forum or CMS so that moderators are moderators in chat, those who are banned are not allowed to send chat messages etc. A Forum/CMS user enters the chat with permissions based on their PRIMARY group from your forum/CMS no matter how many groups he/she is a members of. There are also some differences:
- Vanilla - 3 hardcoded groups: Admin, Moderator, Member
- Woltlab Suite - permissions are based on Ranks
- WordPress - 4 hardcoded groups: Contributor, Author, Editor, Administrator
- Joomla - custom groups are NOT supported, the user is considered a member of the group (from Assigned User Groups) with the greatest ID between 1 and 9
We provide information and step-by-step instructions how to embed BlaB! WS Pro into IPS Suite 4, Joomla, MyBB, phpBB, Vanilla, vBulletin 5, Woltlab Suite, WordPress and Xenforo using an available option in their ACP to create static pages or a similar plugin.
