Can a non-msn site be turned into one?

I created a subdomain site (let's call it with ocportal FIRST. Guests can download but not submit stuff. Members can submit stuff. During installation I did not check any boxes indicating this would be part of an MSN site.

Now I decided I wanted a new site just for chatting/forums purposes only (let's call it Again it's ocportal'd. But now what I would like to do is have forums and downloads connected. That way if someone registers to submit content on the downloads site, they can also use that same registered name over on forums site without having to re-register.

I would like to make forums be the main site and downloads be secondary (if it's possible)…. or if it's not, can it be done vice versa. Can I just connect the forums site to the downloads during installation?

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
