My site bridges with eFiction, a fanfiction archive. In vB this is done via a custom bridge that I wrote. When you call any eFiction page it loads global.php from vBulletin and pulls the relevant user information from that file along with various templates that are then inserted into variables on the eFiction side. Then eFiction runs with that information and processes the page.
So, for my questions:
1 - Does Xen have a way for an external script to pull user information and possible templates? In VB4 this could be done in a very similar way to an external page. Templates are optional but make theming and integration between the scripts much easier.
2 - When importing do the user IDs stay the same? The bridge relies on user ID so if they are going to move around I would need to develop a translation table that would then alter the eFiction information with the new ID's. Not very fun but I did have to do it when I moved from SMF to VB so I know what queries have to be run.
3 - I will need to find out how easy it is to modify the user profile page to add external content. I have not looked this one up yet so it may be the top post in the tutorial area .
4 - Is it easy to modify the config on TinyMCE in Xen? Efiction also uses it and I would love to have the same config on both sides for consistency.
I think that is it for now
