How to brigde php to joomla?

Post by Mitja Bonca » Thu Jan 22, 2009 7:29 am

What is better to choose jFusion or rokBridge as a "brigde" between Joomla and phpBB?
And why?

That entirely depends on your needs. I would advise you to make two local phpBB3/joomla installations and install on the one jFusion and on the other rokBridge and try them both for a couple of days/weeks.
The differences are small and you have to take the one that fits your personal needs, there isn't much we can advice on.

Would jfusion or Rokbridge work with Joomla 1.0.12 ?

As you can read on the project sites of both bridges they are build for Joomla 1.5.x, so no they won't work on 1.0.x

I would definitely recommend JFusion. It is much more flexible and extensible. Even though it is still labeled a beta release it works great. I think that the future development and additional uses are likely to be greater with JFusion.

Rokbridge works only with the Joomla! and phpbb3 files located in a specific directory structure without hacking the bridge. With JFusion the two don't even have to be on the same domain (with some limitations).
