Just working out on the phpBB3.0 on the user registration integration with the main web site. Because of I plan to write the main web site using the coldfusion + MS SQL, so the only way as I may thinking of to do the integration is write a web service a like page for my coldfusion application to call.

After read through some forum, blog, web site and finally find out the way for the integration and here to share my simple PHPBB 3.0 user registration integration code.

  < ?PHP
  define('IN_PHPBB', true);
  /* set scope for variables required later */
  global $phpbb_root_path;
  global $phpEx;
  global $db;
  global $config;
  global $user;
  global $auth;
  global $cache;
  global $template;

  # your php extension
  $phpEx = substr(strrchr(__FILE__, '.'), 1);
  $phpbb_root_path = "../";

/* includes all the libraries etc. required */
  require($phpbb_root_path ."common.php");
  require($phpbb_root_path ."includes/functions_user.php");

// username of the user being added
$username = 'david';

// the user’s password, which is hashed before inserting into the data base
$password = 'password';

// an email address for the user
$email_address = '[email protected]';

// since group IDs may change, you may want to use a query to make sure you are grabbing the
// right default group...
$group_name = ($coppa) ? 'REGISTERED_COPPA' : 'REGISTERED';
$sql = 'SELECT group_id
        FROM ' . GROUPS_TABLE . "
        WHERE group_name = '" . $db->sql_escape($group_name) . "'
            AND group_type = " . GROUP_SPECIAL;

$result = $db->sql_query($sql);

$row = $db->sql_fetchrow($result);

$group_id = $row['group_id'];

// timezone of the user... Based on GMT in the format of '-6', '-4', 3, 9 etc...
$timezone = '8';

$language = 'zh_cmn_hans';

// here if the user is inactive and needs to activate thier account through an activation link
// sent in an email we need to set the activation key for the user... (the goal is to get it about
// 10 chars of randomization) you can use any randomization method you want, for this example,
// I’ll use the following...
$user_actkey = md5(rand(0, 100) . time());
$user_actkey = substr($user_actkey, 0, rand(8, 12));

// IP address of the user stored in the Data base.
$user_ip = $user->ip;

// registration time of the user, timestamp format.
$registration_time = time();

// time since the user is inactive. timestamp.
$user_inactive_time = time();

$user_row = array(
    'username'              => $username,
    'user_password'         => phpbb_hash($password),
    'user_email'            => $email_address,
    'group_id'              => (int) $group_id,
    'user_timezone'         => (float) $timezone,
    'user_dst'              => $is_dst,
    'user_lang'             => $language,
    'user_type'             => '0',
    'user_actkey'           => $user_actkey,
    'user_ip'               => $user_ip,

Word Art by Wordle

By on September 27, 2009

wrdle-bigWordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

You may create the word clouds by copy and paste your bunch of text in the the text area, enter the url of your blog, blog feed or any other web page that has an Atom or RSS feed. After you get your word clouds, you may edit it by changing the font size, font type, font color, layout, or remove certain language from the wordcloud.

Currently Worlde supported most of the language but not Chinese and Japanese, base on the author, this is because they cannot reconize the word split for this 2 languages.
