JoomlaUsersContrib Contrib Package

REQUIRES TWiki 4.2 beta3 or later.

This Contrib enables you to replace the TWiki User and Groups system with a read only access to the User and Groups in a Joomla Database. Registration of new users and their association with Groups is then only handled by Joomla, making it possible to remove the distributed Main web.

You are advised to use the same same host for TWiki and the Joomla Database, otherwise user query performance (happens every request) will severly degrade the response time.

NOTE: for performance reasons, the Joomla Registered Users group is not brought into the system, The other groups may cause performance degredation if they have too many members

By selecting JoomlaLogin, TWiki will also attempt to use the Joomla 'remember me' cookie - though this reqires the TWiki and Joomla hostnames to be the same.

Settings

Settings are in lib/LocalSite.cfg. the TWiki configure script does not currently display the non-core options, but should also not remove them. See the Installation Instructions below for details.

  • One line description:
    • Set SHORTDESCRIPTION = replace the TWiki User and Groups System with Joomla's

  • Name of the perl package
    • Set STUB = TWiki::Contrib::JoomlaUsersContrib
