Multiple Forums, Multiple Databases, One Login Location

I have about 25 forums all on different domains. I am looking for a way to have them all controlled by one master login system. This will then allow users from one board to have access to another. Is this possible with your forums?

This is not possible out of the box, this will need to be custom developed which is not supported.

well, I guess it would be possible by changing some db tables if all forums are on the same db user.

it would be possible if all the forums are using the same software (UseBB ect.) and if all the table PreFixes are the same (_UseBB ect.), you would have to manualy install the other 24 forums though as when the database installes it would overwrite the prefixe's, only problem is all 25 forums would have the same catogries and forums i think!

im not a Php developer, im just trying to think into what goes on, might help though.. who knows i might be seaking jibberish lol,

what if you made somat like this

this would log the person into the forum they wanted, you could also make one registerpage so when they register it adds it to all the databases (providing there all on 1 database with diffrent prefixes)

you could possibly edit the login so to log you into all of them at the same time too BUT they will all have to be on the same server..

you could also have a 'jumpto' menu on your navigation so you just chose from a drop down menu what forumk you want to go to, it then automaticly sends you there.

if you need any help doing this just ask :D
