I am looking to integrate jForum with another web application. As users enter a topic into the other application, I would like that application to automatically insert the topic into jForum as a new forum.

One way in which we can do that would be to insert directly into jForums database. However, it would be simpler if we could simply execute a servlet to do the addition from the other application: e.g. /jforumjforum/jforum.page?module=forum&action=new&forum_name=TheName&moderate=0&categories_id=1&description=test&groupsAccess=&groupsAnonymous=&groupsReadOnly=&groupsHtml=&userid=Admin&password=Admin
..or something similar to the like.

Has anyone tried to do this? If so, what would be the appropriate query string?

Thanks!

The action is "insertSave" and the module is "adminForums". Take a look in the "Create new forum" form, in the Admin Panel.

When I use the following url:

/jforum/jforum.page?module=adminForums&action=insertSave&forum_name=TheName&moderate=0&categories_id=1&description=test&groups=&username=Admin&password=admin&groups=1&groups=2

it works like a charm.
Thanks!

Hello everybody,

I have the same issue! The solution seemed to be here, but it didn't work! I use Version 2.1.7, but when i use this URL the login site occurs. Are there any changes in module names or something!? Any ideas!?
