I might make an upgrade script, but in order to get things finished quickly, it won't be available at release.

You're right that it probably doesn't need one -- just run the setup wizard again, then run the user mapping tool again to correctly map together existing users.

I have another question.

Is it possible that when a new entry is posted in WordPress, a new topic is automaticly created in the forum, with an excerpt of the entry so users can use the forum for commenting, instead of the WordPress comments system?

Yes, template integration is optional.

Every aspect of the mod (user integration, template integration, users have own blogs, etc) can be turned on or off via the Setup Wizard.

Yes, this is planned for post-release. This will be much easier to implement than in phpBB2, so it should come fairly soon. I plan to give the user a choice which forum to post to, within restrictions laid down by the administrator (the new phpBB3 permissions system should be able to handle this, I hope). We also need the option to force cross-posting if desired. I'm still trying to think of a good way to conceptualise follow-up comments -- whether they should also be cross-posted (a big task) or left separate.

Awesome! When this comes out I'll be one of the first to install it. I've always wanted a nice website with WordPress and phpBB integration.

*get's all excited*

Will it be an easy way to take posts from wordpress and, for example, view in phpbb index the X last posts from users blogs?

I'd like to see more integration in that direction. Thanks for your work!!

You mean in a sidebar or something?

You can do that, yes -- if you create a column-based WordPress template with sidebar widgets showing the latest blog posts, etc, then you can just include phpBB in the main column.

Sidebar or in a block between header and forums in index.php, for example.

Thanks for your reply!

Thank you :-)

There's a projected timeline in the forums on wp-united.com, which I'm updating every few days.

I'm currently focussing 100% on the phpBB3 version, and don't plan to even bugfix (unless it is major) the phpBB2 version until we have something ready.

As with most mods, the 'engine' (in this case, template and login integration) is done... it's the trimming that is taking up the majority of the time.
