Ok...I've seen on some sites that have a "Log-in" box on their website, that will log them into their sites forum. How exactly do they do this? I've figured out how to get the layout so that I can do it, I just don't know how to make a site and a forum communicate like that. Is it some sort of code or something. Any help would be appriciated.

Eh, I'm not willing to buy anything, I consider stuff like this as a cheap hobby, so I don't have to buy much. I'm pretty sure I've seen sites using IF and doing this. I doesn't matter if it's possible or not, it's not something I really need on the site.

Eh...my spelling sucks today.

vBulletin isn't the only forum software supporting this >.<

Well, it dpends on which forum host/software you use.
Try looking for a portal hack for that type of forum...

Ok, thanks...Would you happen to know if Invisionfree supports it? Thats what I have the most experience with.

Yeah, I've seen some Invisionfree forums with a portal hack which means it should be available.
Try looking at their support forums.

edit:
Just looked at my IF forum and saw that it already has got a portal.
So I think that's pretty much a standard feature...

You don't need a portal. You just need a form with the right action.


<form action="http://forumurl/index.php?act=Login&amp;CODE=01" method="post" name='LOGIN'>
<input type='hidden' name='referer' value="http://forumurl/index.php?">
Username: <input type='text' size='20' maxlength='64' name='UserName'><br>
Password: <input type='password' size='20' name='PassWord'><br>
Remember me? <input type="radio" name="CookieDate" value="1" checked="checked">Yes <input type="radio" name="CookieDate" value="0">No<br>
Anonymous? <input type="checkbox" name="Privacy" value="1"><br>
<input type="submit" name='submit' value="Log in">
</form>
That should do the trick. Just replace forumurl.
