Hi Anyone,

I just schooled myself in the past month or so with joomla and I've been using phpbb since November. I didn't realize all these great new apps existed, web 2.0 is really coming along... My background is in programming and relational databases.

I'm in the process of converting my seasonal jonesbeach.com (crap frontpage) site to joomla with smf and cb but for it to go smoothly I'm testing the entire suite / bridge on robertmoses.com and robertmoses.org

I'm not sure how unique my install is but I just installed all the latest joomla / smf / cb bridge in the following fashion: joomla/cb on robertmoses.com and SMF on robertmoses.org - I want to be able to have the forum as a separate site for convienence and I Thought that would be cool.

It seems to be working OK (bridged and using separate domains) but the one big problem is the login and registration through "direct" SMF domain is not syncing with my joomla/cb domain. I thought this was a 2 way street ? I figured out what's happening, when you select the forum link through Joomla, which probably most people do, it restructures the SMF forum so it specifically uses CB. When you hit the forum directly, without going through joomla, it reverts back to the default "stock" SMF login and registration as if there was no integration at all. Basically, it appears the actual SMF site was never modified to link with joomla, only the other way around.

Is there an easy way to fix this ?  Worst comes to Worst I'll just install the forum on the same domain (probably the way it was intended) and just forward the other domain.

any help is greatly appreciated.
