It is more compatible.  I will be writing an integration mod for it.

I've read somewhere that phpnuke uses as cookie the names user and admin, so, if another script that uses cookies in the same domain and have some variables named user and admin, there's a conflict that prevent the script cookies to be written (like yabbse).

could be true ?

YaBB SE had problems with this.

SMF does not.

I got past that problem by commenting out the code in YaBB SE that creates the cookie and instead pulling through the member name via the CMS.

Umm, SMF is still in Alpha. You're not going to be able to actually use it for a bit. There's a thread somewhere about dates (or maybe just in cm board, can't remember), but yeah, it's not coming out in a week or anything...

I want to be very boring about this question ...

Phpnuke goes out with PhpBB, not with an integration, but with a module ( nuke module  ;) ) : a ported version of PhpBB.

this means that phpnuke and phpbb share the same users table ( with same columns ) and the same IM system, and a lot of administrative features are disponible by nuke.

If I understand rightly, we've got to expect some more light integration from SMF :P ...

Well, I can at least make it integrated.  It will take some modifications to both (phpNuke and SMF.) however.

That's why it won't work out of the box.  phpBB doesn't even work out of the box.... just out of the phpNuke box.

it takes time to work stuff out when trying to have it work with a portal like phpnuke there is alwasys problem that come up when you think its perferct

Great idea to make a SMF-nuke packet :) I think a lot of webmasters are waiting for a fast combination of Phpnuke & SMF. Tests will show that SMF is much faster  then Phpbb2 ;D

this what i've written, and the answer is: yes it's true.

when nuke writes cookies uses user, so when yabbse ( which uses $user as global ) looks for cookie, find the encrypted name and password of nuke and don't permit users to login.

solution: i've changed every $user and $username into $yabbuser and $yabbusername ( even in the form input ), and now everythings works fine.

I guess this is already changed in SMF, maybe in the same way.

SMF has the issue fixed, yes.

No this means that it is using the CMS (XOOPS in the case mentioned) session rather than it's own individual session. The key with a CMS is being integrated.

this is very interesting ...
can you explain more or a in a step by step instruction, this procedure ? I don't understand how yabbse use the CMS session ( phpnuke ? ) instead of it's own ...

[Unknown]

You have to change everything in it to look at the other's method of authentication.  It can be a pain.

As such, I have no aspirations of getting it finished before SMF.

This integration would be cool. :D

Very cool indeed.

Edit:
@[Unknown] (or anyone who knows) - If one were to run phpnuke and SMF side by side now, in anticipation of an integration at some point in the future, how should it be set up as far as directory structure or naming of cookies in order to make it the easiest transition later?
SMF since 2004 <3
