||:: -=User Features=- :: | -=Description=- | -=Availability=-
Single Sign On slaves bitweaver to another application | create a "bitweaver_login_override" function to that will permit you to slave bitweaver accounts to an external application - examples include a proprietary database or an existing ((PhpbbPackage|phpBB)) installation | ReleaseOne

Overridable user home page url | manually decide what the user's home page url is| ReleaseOne||

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:
{code in="php"}
function override_user_url( $pUserName ) {
return 'http://'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].'/'.$pUserName;

and add the following to path/to/bitweaver/.htaccess :
{code ()}
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^([A-Za-z0-9_]+)$ /users/index.php?home=$1 [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.
