New Forum - One Click Sign In. How Does it Work?

It's been a long time that we wanted to upgrade our forum software but we were stuck in many different issues to get time for this.

At last here we are with our new sleek looking forum. One main feature that we wanted to introduce was the ability to link your Client Area to your forum account. Now you have to register/login once and you will be able to access client area and forum.

How does it work!

  • For old members have account on both Website and Forum
    You simply need to sign in and click on "Sign in with Profreehost" on sidebar or forum. As you already had username setup on old forum, you will immediately be inside the forum.

  • For old users having no forum account and new users
    Once you login, you will be prompted with a screen to choose a username for your forum. Once you do that, you will get access to the forum.

It is just that easy!

We are looking forward to making this community more user friendly. So, all suggestions and feedback are welcome but please post them in the right category ;)

    Vanilla, https://vanillaforums.com/en/software/
    It is also on the Script installer.

    The single sign on (SSO) uses the JSConnect plugin.

    Thanks! I just used LayerBB on my latest forum installation. The interface looks very similar to this one.

    Why do we have to press login at first and then press again "Sign in With ProFreeHost"?

    JSConnect. It is a plugin, but you have to login to PFH in order to show the option to sign into PFH's forum. Basically, if you do not have a account, you cannot use the forum.

    Yes, what I meant is that in another site (I will not mention 'cause it's direct competitor), there is the option that you login from client area and do not have to press the Login with ProFreeHost button again, it automatically connects you to your forum account.


    EDIT: I saw that after the first login, you do not have to do the same process again.
