Looking for a forum to integrate into a custom system

    Hi,

    I have a site built from scratch with lots of custom PHP. I am looking for a forum script which I can integrate into the site. If I use a standard script my users will have to register twice and login twice, clearly that isn't good.
    SEMrush
    Are there any forums with easily accessable API to call with registration details and login commands or worst case with an easy MySQL backend which could be manipulated by my custom script.

    Thanks in advance,

    Gary

    An open source system like phpbb should be easy to integrate if you know php. Also, theirs lots of folks on their support forums that probably know how.

    SMF (http://www.simplemachines.org/) works very nicely in integrating, and has an API I believe (although using thieir SSI.php file is the easiest way to call login scripts etc. Not sure about registration yet tho) - great forum software too :D

    PS I've used it to combine two of the sites in my sig, so if I can use it, then I'm sure someone with more knowledge will have no probs!
