Is there a way to use the built in Sitefinity Membership and Role providers in another website?
Essentially a client is running a Sitefinity based website but they are not happy with the features provided through the forum module and want to switch to YAF (YetAnotherForum.net).
However, they want to keep the login as a single share system so I'm looking at replacing the YAF Membership and Role providers with the Sitefinity providers but still keeping the YAF Profile provider.
I don't know if you're familiar with YAF and so could provide clues to an alternative approach to integrating Sitefinity with YAF?
I've copied the Telerik.DataAccess.dll and Nolics.Engine.v4.2.dll files across and copied the Membership and Role blocks across from the Sitefinity web.config file along with a suitable connection string to the Sitefinity database but I just get the error that it can't load the Telerik.DataAccess.AspnetProviders.TelerikRoleProvider type so presumably theres further dependencies I'm missing.
Thanks in advance for any help.
