XenForo Connector 1.0

Integrate XF data on your website

    XenForo Connector
    About
    This is more copy/paste code than a resource, but the forum is being archived and as I'm getting some emails about the old forumConnector, here it is for everyone to find conveniently.

    This is designed to be copied/pasted into a PHP script on your website and requires XenForo to be installed on the same fileserver. If your website and your forums don't use the same subdomain (or more generally if you have cookie issues), be sure to set your
    Code:
    $config['cookie']['domain'] 
    
    and
    Code:
    $config['cookie']['path']
    
    (in your forums/library/config.php file).
    PHP:
    define('XF_ROOT''/my/path/to/xf'); // set this (absolute path)!define('TIMENOW', time());define('SESSION_BYPASS', false); // if true: logged in user info and sessions are not needed
     
    require_once(XF_ROOT '/library/XenForo/Autoloader.php');
     
    XenForo_Autoloader::getInstance()->setupAutoloader(XF_ROOT '/library');
     
    XenForo_Application::initialize(XF_ROOT '/library'XF_ROOT);XenForo_Application::set('page_start_time'TIMENOW);XenForo_Application::disablePhpErrorHandler();XenForo_Application::setDebugMode(false);
     
    if (!
    SESSION_BYPASS)
    {
    XenForo_Session::startPublicSession();
     
    $visitor XenForo_Visitor::getInstance();
     
     if (
    $visitor->getUserId())
     {
    $userModel XenForo_Model::create('XenForo_Model_User');$userinfo $userModel->getFullUserById($visitor->getUserId());
     }
    }
     
    restore_error_handler();restore_exception_handler();
    And here are some useful bits of code ;)

    Get the logout URL
    PHP:
    $visitor XenForo_Visitor::getInstance(); // this could be moved to the "main" code above, right after the $userinfo initialization
     
    echo XenForo_Link::buildPublicLink("canonical:logout"$userinfo, array('_xfToken' => $visitor['csrf_token_page'], 'redirect' => 'any_url')); //redirect is optional
    Get a thread's info and URL
    PHP:
    $threadModel XenForo_Model::create('XenForo_Model_Thread');$thread $threadModel->getThreadById(ID); // thread info (associative array)
     
    echo XenForo_Link::buildPublicLink('canonical:threads'$thread); // thread URLecho XenForo_Link::buildPublicLink('canonical:threads/add-reply', $thread); // add reply URL
