Hi all,

I planned to integrate JForum into my site, though it looks like I will rather have to integrate my site into JForum, by the looks of it.

Really good work so far.

I am wondering if there's any sort of architectural overview of the code somewhere? I see the JForum class is the central servlet, which doles out its reply template based on the action name of the form submit, but it's a lot to take in. Does anyone have like an idiots guide to adding a new Action from start to finish? Or a new Entity?

For example, I will need to modify the users/profiles to have an image associated with them, so I'll need to modify the whole chain up the stack, which would be easier if there were a guide of sorts, written by one of the main devs?

Thanks
Dan

I'm afraid there is no such guide available.

With respect to the image, are you aware of the built-in avatar functionality? It lets each user upload an image which is then displayed alongside their profile (and next to each of their posts).

Ok thanks, that is great. I will just mod the form then, and use the existing code.

It will probably take me a long time, but I'll get around to making changes, and I'll write up a little guide as I go along.
