Forum Intergration

What plugin/addon does your forum use to allow the client area to fully intergrate?

Vanilla Forums offers a Single Sign On method called JsConnect. It’s a bit finicky to use (it’s not as well documented as I’d like), but once set up correctly it works pretty well.

What plugin is the client area itself?

The client area is custom built, so the JsConnect backend had to be custom built as well. There are helpers to help generate the right JSON payload.

This forum uses Vanilla Forums to power it. I have Vanilla Forums on my website, and it is great. It doesn’t look that great at first, but once you find a good theme or make your own, it is so great. The plugins make it even better, there are so many you could even use Vanilla Forums as a “social network” kinda like Facebook.

I’m looking to have a client area that’s pretty much the same as this, but of course I’d have some customisation and extras like content panels and ticket system integrations etc.

Like are you providing web hosting? I have one where I’m providing Minecraft Servers at https://my.at-web-design.co.uk which is totally custom built?

I don’t have a login to look at the site you made.

I suggest for your client area, you use Softaculous, and install phpMyFAQ, some ticket system, and Vanilla Forums with a Q&A plugin and voting so you can vote for answers and mark things as answers. This is what I use, and it works fairly well. As a bonus, you could install live helper chat to talk to your customers live, instead of just community/ticket support.

I didn’t know about the Q&A plugin, I just checked and it and looks nice! Maybe we can add it here soon as well.

As for ticketing systems, Freshdesk is a nice hosted solution which has a free tier. In the self hosted category osTicket is the best free option there is I think, but I personally don’t find it very nice to work with.

Any particular reason you bumped? Your initial question was answered, wasn’t it?
