Joomla integration ?

Joomla integration ?

Has anybody been able to integrate DaDaBIK into Joomla CMS?

I know I can run DaDaBIK through a Wrapper window in Joomla, but I need the user control Joomla offers.

This is something that I am considering to do.

I am only waiting that Joomla 1.5 gets out before looking seriously into this.

I have some experience porting the code to phpnuke, so I can easily say that this challenge is one I would like to take.

Take care untill then.

Hi Eugenio.

Don't worry... When the time comes, if it does, I will release the code and charge people as much as you do to get it... That's free.

But I am sincerely considering it.

Many of my customers for whom I did the nuke port are very eager to consider joomla to advance their website to the next level... So it may be mandatory for me to port the code to keep these customers.

I like them and they like me so why not continue together.

This is the main reason why I would Joomla-tize DaDaBIK.

Keep up the good work. Congratz to you and all the crew. You have my admiration.

I have asked around my actual phpnuke customers (but 1 or 2) and the general wish is not to go forward with joomla.

I then asked myself: should port DaDaBiK anyways?

The answer is not likely. I now have my own Open Source project that is taking most of my free time.

Without someone requesting it, I just can't afford the time to do it.

Considering the effort that has to be put in order to respect the framework joomla is built with, it's not likely anyone will venture there either without a VERY good reason or a financial incentive.

I wish one of my customer would have sponsored me like it was the case for the port for nuke... But it's just not happening.

In the meantime, let's all take a second to draw our hat to this team for the tremendous amount of work that has been put into this project and humbly wait for the next version to impress us some more.

Long live the cat!

Where can I find detailed information on what it means to port to php nuke... Exactly what is that? I might be interested.

i use Joomla and dadabik together in a wrapper window and this hack for
accessing the activ session of joomla.
Put this ontop of your dadabik config.php:
My Joomla is in a subdirectory called portal. Tested with joomla 1.0.15

define( "_VALID_MOS", 1 );
require_once( "../portal/configuration.php" );
require_once( "../portal/includes/joomla.php" );

$database = new database( $mosConfig_host, $mosConfig_user, $mosConfig_password, $mosConfig_db, $mosConfig_dbprefix );

// mainframe is an API workhorse, lots of 'core' interaction routines
$mainframe = new mosMainFrame( $database, $option, '../portal' ,true);


// get the information about the current user from the sessions table
$my = $mainframe->getUser();

$gid = intval( $my->gid );
echo "GID:".$gid;
