i would like to integrate a single sign on with phpfox. Does anyone have done this and can share the information with some lines of code?

I have tried to do this via sso-plugin but without success. i´m not an expert so be patient with me if you try to explain what i have to do to get this work.
Q2A version: 1.5.1
Since this is a pretty old question, I would love to know if you have managed to get this up & running?

Hello, I have managed to integrate PHPFox with Question2Answer and its working just fine. I have written 4 in-depth tutorials for the entire process. The tutorials are pretty big so I am linking them to my blog posts where I have documented the entire process and you can go through them here:

1. The first part of the tutorial takes you through the setup for the standard Q2A single-sign-on database - http://digitizor.com/2014/02/12/integrate-phpfox-question2answer-q2a-sso/

2. Next we take care of the Autoloading mechanism of PHPFox so that we can access all functions and user sessions of PHPFox using the standard APIs - http://digitizor.com/2014/02/12/autoload-phpfox-access-from-external-php-script/

3. This is the last part of the tutorial that shows how you can implement the 5 compulsory functions in order to make the Q2A sso work with PHPFox - http://digitizor.com/2014/02/12/phpfox-q2a-sso-compulsory-functions/

Here is a video of the PHPFox - Question2Answer Single Sign-on demo - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJHWqkvxN-U
I think that your tutorials bring great value to the q2a community...
The "article" approach (blog, tutorials, etc etc) is a bit lacking presently (my opinion).
They are very useful, thanks
Thanks for liking the tutorials @maxjtechno.
