How to do User Authentication When Migrating Off Joomla

How to do User Authentication When Migrating Off Joomla

Hey guys,
So this isnt entirely specific to JFBConnect, but since I have JFBConnect integrated it sort of does.

I built a large site off of J1.5 as a custom component. It's about time that we scrap J1.5 and just turn the custom component into something more standalone.

Another "section" of the site is based off backbone.js and we have FB authentication on it and so I'm definitely looking at going that route, but that may be more work than I have time for atm. Really the only thing keeping us attached to J1.5 atm is the user authentication I'd say.

Could you guys provide any thoughts or recommendations on what you might do if you were me? You guys are much more experienced with user authentication and having a native user auth / fb auth combo and I'd reallllyyy appreciate some direction.

Thanks for any input you can provide, I've really appreciated the quality and thought you guys have put into JFBC and your customer support.

Best
J

J,
I'm not sure what suggestions you're looking for. We support JFBConnect, which is definitely a Joomla-based component. It's not meant to be standalone, and without knowing what your 'custom' authentication is, it'd be really difficult (if not impossible) to propose any way to migrate off.

Additionally, it looks like your subscription isn't active. I'm not sure what version of JFBConnect you're using, but any suggestions I'd have would be based off our most recent v5.0 release.

In general, we'd always recommend using a CMS as the underlying system. It takes care of so much and has a lot of security built-in, due to so many users using it. If you go your own route, you're really giving up on a lot of flexibility and development that is 'free' by simply choosing a CMS.

Hope that helps, though it might not be exactly what you were looking to hear.

Thanks,
Alex
