Add-On Type(s)

Forum Theme


A login handler for IP.Board that lets members of a designated ExpressionEngine database log in to your forums.

How It Works

With this package installed to your IP.Board forums, it checks the username and password of any login attempts against your ExpressionEngine database. If the user exists and the password matches, it pulls their unique numeric user ID and logs them in with the account of the corresponding ID in the IP.Board database.

If there is no matching user on the IP.Board side, it will create one for them.


  1. Upload the files to whereever you have IP.Board located.
  3. Fill in the details for your ExpressionEngine database in auth.php on lines 142-146.
  5. Go to the Log In Management section of your IP.Board’s admin panel to install the handler and fill in any remaining configuration info.


This was designed to be used on a clean IP.Board install with all other login methods disabled. Built and tested on 3.4.8 and EE 2.10+. It may work in conjunction with other login methods, but that’s on you to figure out.

It’s based on a modified version of IP.Board’s bundled “external” login method, with the password hashing/salting/verification functions ripped from a couple EE files.

If you’re gonna be extending this for your own uses and need some reference material, might wanna start with the Login Modules Integration Guide on InvisionPower.com.
