Some Cool Notes:
  • bitweaver can act as a master or a slave for user accounts. This means you can easily bolt bitweaver into an existing, proprietary user account system. SingleSignOn is a piece of cake. To get this to work, create something like:

  • To create a custom user home page url, here is an example function you can put in your kernel/config_inc.php:

function override_user_url$pUserName ) {

and add the following to path/to/bitweaver/.htaccess :

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule     ^([A-Za-z0-9_]+)$       /users/index.php?home=$[L,QSA]

Development Notes:
(:exclaim:) We have created a "BitPermUser extends BitUser" class. This movee all groups and permission code into a single class. This makes it possible to have "BitGallery2User extends BitUser" if you wanted to use Gallery2Package group and permission tables.
(:exclaim:) we are also making it possible for normal users to create their own groups.
