I’m creating an online PC game and I want to have a forum on my website.
I want the forum and game accounts to be integrated, so that if you log on to the website you can also post on the forums. Furthermore I want the same account to be used for authentication in the PC game (Token based, using a webservice or REST authentication).
The website is made in Wordpress and I started playing with BBPress but wasn’t too impressed. I want the website admin user-space to be entirely different from the game/forum user-space.
I wonder if Discourse is the right tool for the job? And should I let Discourse handle the authentication for the forum as well as the game, or is it easy to configure Discourse to use a different user-space seamlessly (not like the way you can log in with Facebook etc. in here)?
