I've think I've finished setting up a JForum on the site I'm building. The forum is located at www.uniq-vanguard.com/JForum for those interested. I used sitemesh to blend the forum into my site's L&F. The blending worked very well except for the fact that I have to disable it to access the admin console since sitemesh can't handle frames (anyone know a hack for this?). I also had to disable CAPTCHA since it was throwing the java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException error. Anywho, on to the question...

I haven't inspected the code to know for sure, but at first glance it seems to be a workable idea: can you use JForums login system as a global login/session system for an entire site, using whatever cookies and/or other session data JForum creates as part of the login process for other parts of the site? If so, can you manually add fields to the registration form? If not, how would an external user registration system access JForum? The point would be to allow the user to login to the main site, and then have the main site log them into the forum so that they would not have to keep up with multiple logins.

On another note, I'm still having an issue sending activation emails to users so I've temporarily disabled that aspect. Whenever I attempt to send a test mail from the admin console, I get an error even though the configuration seems to be correct. Does anyone know off the top of their head where this issue has been addressed so I can start getting some forward momentum on solving it?

Thanks in advance,
uniq
