Function ovverride



  • Hi guys,

    I have idea to create plugin that will replace standard register/login functionality, with profile auth via steam platform, for those forums that are directly targeted to the games.

    But first, is any way to override common functions to register and login?

    What you seen to be looking for is a SSO (single sign on) plugin. There are a couple for steam already. You can then disable normal registration to get the behavior you're asking for.



  • @PitaJ OK, nice to know thx.

    Sure is. NTG (which is where I work) has done this commercially for customers. Overriding the existing authentication system is pretty straightforward.

    However, Steam uses OAuth and there is already a plugin framework specifically for OAuth providers.

    Moreso, there is already a Steam integration plugin AFAIK so all you have to do is install the existing plugin and voila, done.

    So to answer the question you asked, yes, companies like us do this and it's not expensive work. But to answer the question you meant to ask, this should already be done for you and you just have to install the plugin.
