Here are ours http://www.bendigou.com and http://www.haoxiaoqu.com

We are trying to link that together, but it really takes time.

Did you guys work this one out? Does anyone build an e-commerce website with the forum? If so, could you share with us and I would like to discuss that with you as well!

Well each forum is different and it depends on what you would like to do with it.  If you want shared authentication then you have to decide whether to use Magento’s authentication backend or use your forum’s.  Due to the complexity of Magento’s I would not advise rewriting that code but rather take whatever authentication functions are in the forum and authenticate the users against Magento’s.  Do the same with cookies/sessions.  Then all it is, is a matter of theming your forum the same as Magento.

Thanks a lot. So you meant that Magento would automatically have the forum ready?  Could you give me some examples for that?

Our forum on this community site is an Expression Engine CMS with Forum functionality that is fully integrated with a Magento Store.

Magento does not offer a forum module. You would need to customize a forum module that you like and merge the user data between them.

It would be great if someone can offer such a forum or facebook type of community for that.
