No need to - the mod rules states that someone can take over a abandoned mod plus it is under GPL so forking is permitted.

Ok I have rewritten the option page so that it is part of the theme and you no longer need to install a plug-in. Adding to that the option page is much safer.

There is a bug at your newest version, when logging in, its not possible as an author to do new postings, you always get redirected to the ucp.php of the forum

That something that I am still trying to sort out - it is done so that registered users who are not admin get taken to the user control panel.

Hello all,

I have uploaded a package that can be used for testing. I have also included details on how to install the WordPress and phpBB part. As always before you do anything, backup your database and files for both your phpBB and WordPress install.

All feedback and comments are welcomed :)

Ok I have just uploaded a demo site, please note that it may be slow at times because it's on a free webhost so the server will be slow at times.
