Pushing KVS registrations to Xenforo, so users can use same username/password on both systems


Recommended Posts


I'd like to push the username, password, and email address from KVS over to my Xenforo forums, this way users don't have to sign up twice.

We use the forums for chat/support etc, thought this would be convenient for the users.

Is there a solution for this?

KVS doesn't store passwords in open or retrievable format.

Also at the moment KVS doesn't have single point of code for users registration, so not easy to add customization to report user details to a 3rd-party service. We are migrating this to nextgen framework, so at some time it will become possible and easy, but not now.

Right now you can modify signup block code to hook into user registration, but this will only work for users that are registred via signup form. If users are registred via payment processor, this would be another code. If users are created manually from admin - another code. Then also member_profile_edit block code for password / email change.
