I am building a Joomla website for a client. It requires the use of Joomla login in order to hide certain features of the site. Additionally, there is a third party website that is being iFramed into the Joomla primary. However, it also requires a login.
Can JFBConnect be used to pass the Joomla login through to the third party website so that the end user does not need to login twice?
If not, is this something that one of your developers can create for me and can you provide me a quote for this?
thanks in advance!
No, JFBConnect can't do what you're looking for on it's own. JFBConnect ties into Joomla's underlying authentication system entirely. JFBConnect is meant to allow authentication from other sites to work in Joomla. It's not meant to be a single-sign on provider into other sites.
There are other extensions out there to do that for Joomla which do work with JFBConnect, but it's not something we can implement directly.
I hope that helps explain,
You said, "There are other extensions out there to do that for Joomla which do work with JFBConnect"
I can't seem to find any. Do you happen to know any names off hand? I've scoured the Extensions Directory and the only one I can find that may do it is no longer supported at all.
I had a feeling you were going to ask, and unfortunately, no I don't. JFusion did exactly what you're looking for and integrated with multiple other authentication systems. Unfortunately, development stopped on that earlier this year. You can still probably find it, but you won't get any support or development going forward.
There are other systems, like p8pbb which is just for integrating Joomla with phpBB, but that's very specific.. and I don't know what other system you're trying to work with.
Sorry I couldn't provide more details, and please do let us know if you find anything!
