is it possable to combine TFL with Bladeforums, Like when you go to TFL for instance there is "on one side TFL, and the other side Bladeforums" ???

We're on the same server, so in terms of absolute paths, it could be done, however, if we wanted to combine the two member databases, we'd be better off starting a third site, storing the member files there, then referencing them.... then again, it *is* feasible...

It's an interesting idea, to be sure. I'll do some checking.

We can keep both sites seperate and just have a portal that can reach either easily, and we do have the option of having members join one site and being able to use the same username and password for the other site as well, it just takes some wrangling.

Security wise, it's not the greatest because I like to run with only 2 admins on our BB (myself and Mike, the guy who pay's the bills) and there are a couple admins on this site as well. You know what they say about security: take the number of people who know about something and square it, and that's how likely you are to have a problem.

We'll do some research and figure this out.
