Unite - How much can you customize the solution?

    Is SEU a multi-tenant cloud solution?  

    We are using the PHP version on AWS and access it within an iframe in our main platform solution.  We are customizing the solution for SAML SSO and some bespoke functionality around groups.

    Can this be done using the new version?  I see the CMS for theme changes etc, but wondered if we can customize the core solution and protect those changes as upgrades occur.

    No customization is done to the core itself. Everything is done via the API and you can customize everything via the API. An example is our main site which uses a combination of the old PHP marketplace and the new Unite with special features. None of those features touched the core. SE main is actually a separate app. :) Yup, you can make a site an app actually. We will have documentation for the API as soon as we can.

    You could SSO every unite site if that's what you are looking to do. However, Unite is SaaS.

    We have been using SEPHP for about 7 years and recently moved over to Unite. It's quite easy to make a Theme/Flavor in the admin panel and fully customise the look and feel of Unite. We have managed to create the look and feel of our old SEPHP site but with a freshness and speed our membership seem to really enjoy. The overall feedback has been great.

    That's awesome!
