Topic: PunBB in use with several CMS

This is a demonstration of the use of PunBB in relation to two other CMSs

My main site is made of Pages classified in categories (adHoc).
My forum in PunBB.
My photo album is Piwigo.

I can connect to PunBB via adHoc.
I display PunBB extract (Last Posts) in adHoc.
adHoc and PunBB can use photos located on Piwigo by a direct link in the editor toolbar. So I can have only one place for my pictures and they are uploaded only once.

In each one of the 3 CMS, links to the others are in the menu.
I made a google search engine that searches into the 3 websites at once.

I have tried to match the style (CSS) in the 3 cms so that visitors can think there are in the same universe.

All this organisation means some mental gymnastics, since the css specifications are different, administration does not look at all the same and the data bases are also different : flat files, sqlite and mysql. Some times I get lost ! I used a portal CMS that did everything years ago, but today, I choose to marry the best of every universe.

Here is the main site : http://revestou.fr/
Here is the Piwigo : http://photos.revestou.fr/
Here is the wonderful PunBB : http://revest.legtux.org/

Comments are welcome, but try to be cool with me : I am no geek and no coder.

Alas! I can not get to http://revest-legtux.org. Maybe because of the laws of my country, which covers some domains. But I liked the combination of the main site and Piwigo

Re: PunBB in use with several CMS

No, it's because I made an error in the address : it is : http://revest.legtux.org/ (. instead of -)
Sorry I will correct it in the initial post.
Thanks for the comment

Re: PunBB in use with several CMS

Well, this demonstration is a failure : The hosting service Legtux just passed the server with php 7.2 , (in the past hour, it was OK moments ago) and I get a huge hip of error messages that I will have difficulties to solve :

Deprecated: Function create_function() is deprecated in /var/www/legtux.org/users/revest/www/include/parser.php on line 813 Deprecated: Function create_function() is deprecated in /var/www/legtux.org/users/revest/www/include/parser.php on line 818

Last week I struggled with 7.2. It was a success. https://punbb.info/t-1010.html
