Including MyBB in your PHP pages

Integrating a software into another website page sounds like a daunting task. However, it's really quite easy with MyBB. Here's all you have to do:

Above the rest of your website code, put this.

<?php
    define('IN_MYBB',1);
    require_once('path_to_mybb/global.php');

and with that, you have access to MyBB! you can use its $db object, $mybb->settings variables, and even $mybb->user information (given that you have a cookie domain and directory that allow your new application access to the cookies)

It's much easier than you think. Learn how to do even more integration in my next ProTip.
