I can usually be found on #zftalk on Freenode if you need help setting this up.


MdgMultiUser is a module for Zend Framework 2 that enables you to configure and use multiple instances of the ZfcUser user registration and authentication module.



Main Setup

With composer
  1. Add this project to your composer.json:

    "require": {
        "michaelgooden/mdg-multi-user": "0.1.*"
  2. Now tell composer to download MdgMultiUser by running the command:

    $ php composer.phar update
Post installation
  1. Enabling it in your application.config.phpfile.

    return array(
        'modules' => array(
            // ...
        // ...

Post-Install: Zend\Db

  1. You can use the schema provided by ZfcUser, just change the table name for each subsystem you setup.

  2. This module does require a minimal amount of configuration to work. An example configuration file has been provided ./config/mdgmultiuser.example.global.php.dist.

    Copy this file to your projects ./config/autoload/ folder, and edit the examples to suit your requirements.

    Importantly, you will be required to setup a full route structure for any subsystems you wish to have.

Usage Notes

In order to access the view helpers and controller plugins, you need to call a different set of commands.

  • Controller plugin ZfcUserAuthentication() maps to MdgMultiUserAuthentication($alias)
  • View helper ZfcUserDisplayName() maps to MdgMultiUserDisplayName($alias)
  • View helper ZfcUserIdentity() maps to MdgMultiUserIdentity($alias)
  • View helper ZfcUserLoginWidget() maps to MdgMultiUserLoginWidget($alias)

In all cases $alias must be replaced by the name of your subsystem. This is derived from the key of the config array under 'mdgmultiuser'.
