    A Database mess

    I am looking for a little database help with my website- http://www.michianaonline.com As you can see, i have different areas on the site where a mysql database comes into play. This includes the vbulletin Bulletin boards, the classfieds section, and now the Newsletter subscription. Can anyone here come up with a solution that will consolidate this to one database where a person only logs in one time, and then there is a field where it says, "subscribe to database?"....(I dunno just thinking out loud). Or should I just keep things the way they are since a person who logs onto the classifieds section may not want to even post on the boards....then if i include all the info that is required for all 3 areas, maybe the registration process becomes too long...Your expert advice is much needed.

    Thanks

    I suppose you'd have to look at how each application stores data about users, then decide upon one way for all three applications. Then you'd have to decide how you wanted to alter the other two applications.

    vB has hacks for lot of different things, I bet you could easily manage your newsletter subscriptions through a vB hack. Just a guess.

    Don't know if this is the best link or not: http://www.vbulletin.org/hacks/index.php

    oops, I am sorry, I thought I was responding to another post of mine.

    I have not received a solution to this issue yet.
