    Combining a chat & forum database

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this or not...

    But how would I combine a chat and forum so that if one registered for one of them then they would register for both? Basically how would I make a database allowing someone access to any part of the site?

    you would simply store your users in one table, you would then refer with a login script to see if they exist in the table or not. This is more a question of your application language (PHP, coldfusion etc.), once you get beyond a simple table set up in your database.

    Well both my chat and forum are in PHP.... I'm gonna try to combine them now with the one table and see what happens. I'll get back here either way to say if it works or not Thanks
