Pre sale:user site selection

Post by davidsteadson » March 8th, 2016, 7:47 am

Hi,

We're setting up multiple niche social networks with Jomsocial and are looking at MightySites for the core user database.

We are using ReadyBytes Jomsocial ProfileTypes to provide multiple profile types (eg members, sports clubs, bands, depending on niche site)

Different niche networks will have different profile information, relevant to the niche topic area.

We are using GeoCode Factory to geocode users and Jomsocial events.

Is this a scenario that will work with your software, and is there a way for users to select which sites they wish to be active (or listed on) when they register?

Thanks!
/David

These extensions will work if they use native Joomla database layer (JFactory::getDbo()).

MightySites doesn't change registration process, it's up to you how to display any sites selector.
If all sites use same users database tables - all users will be already same on all sites, no sense to any sites.

If each site uses own users tables and ask user to select sits to register - your custom code should add user to all tables. But note that such users won't be synced.

Yeah, we want the users to be registered on all sites, but not necessarily show up in search of maps or such. Sounds like we need a separate registration field for "active sites" which we check for when displaying search results, something like that?

Yes, sounds like a solution.
