So our site is currently trying to move from vBulletin to Burning Board, and we have some special requirements before we finalize the move. I've been digging through the files in hopes of finding a way to use the database classes to connect to a different database (WordPress, specifically) so that we can use some of the data to integrate the forum with our main site. What would you all recommend? Is there a way to get the existing classes to connect to a new database with specific parameters in the code? Should I design a different database connection? Would it be easier to gather all of WordPress' database connection classes and tie them into BB?
I look forward to a response. This has been bugging me for awhile.
