Unmaintained XenForo Connector 1.0

No permission to download
Hi,

Well, this is more copy/paste code than a resource, but the forum is being archived and as I'm getting some emails about the old forumConnector, here it is for everyone to find conveniently.

This is designed to be copied/pasted into a PHP script on your website and requires XenForo to be installed on the same fileserver. If your website and your forums don't use the same subdomain (or more generally if you have cookie issues), be sure to set your $config['cookie']['domain'] and $config['cookie']['path'] (in your forums/library/config.php file).


PHP:
define('XF_ROOT', '/my/path/to/xf'); // set this (absolute path)!
define('TIMENOW', time());
define('SESSION_BYPASS', false); // if true: logged in user info and sessions are not needed
 
require_once(XF_ROOT . '/library/XenForo/Autoloader.php');
 
XenForo_Autoloader::getInstance()->setupAutoloader(XF_ROOT . '/library');
 
XenForo_Application::initialize(XF_ROOT . '/library', XF_ROOT);
XenForo_Application::set('page_start_time', TIMENOW);
XenForo_Application::disablePhpErrorHandler();
XenForo_Application::setDebugMode(false);
 
if (!SESSION_BYPASS)
{
    XenForo_Session::startPublicSession();
 
    $visitor = XenForo_Visitor::getInstance();
 
    if ($visitor->getUserId())
    {
        $userModel = XenForo_Model::create('XenForo_Model_User');
        $userinfo = $userModel->getFullUserById($visitor->getUserId());
    }
}
 
restore_error_handler();
restore_exception_handler();
And here are some useful bits of code ;)

Get the logout URL
PHP:
$visitor = XenForo_Visitor::getInstance(); // this could be moved to the "main" code above, right after the $userinfo initialization
 
echo XenForo_Link::buildPublicLink("canonical:logout", $userinfo, array('_xfToken' => $visitor['csrf_token_page'], 'redirect' => 'any_url')); //redirect is optional
Get a thread's info and URL
PHP:
$threadModel = XenForo_Model::create('XenForo_Model_Thread');
$thread = $threadModel->getThreadById(ID); // thread info (associative array)
 
echo XenForo_Link::buildPublicLink('canonical:threads', $thread); // thread URL
echo XenForo_Link::buildPublicLink('canonical:threads/add-reply', $thread); // add reply URL

Just built my new revision of my website and wanted to use XenForo as my member and authentication/session platform along with the forums. This connector has worked great for incorporating necessary components into my site.
very helpful
