Phpbb - WordPress links

Post by Ivgoneridng »

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, so apologies if I 'm in the wrong place
-=-------------------------------------

I'm looking to implement a single sign-on between phpbb and WordPress and wondering which is the best tool to use? There are some WordPress plugins and from what I can see, only 1 phpbb extension. The WordPress plug-ins aren't well used so don't appear to be a popular option. Is phpbb wordp connections no longer recommended?

the desire for it is popular but the implentation for it has not had much luck over the years.
none of the old MODs that did it will work with 3.1 or above.

the only decent one I know of that works is called BridgeDD but the version that works with 3.1 and above is not free.

If it was me I would just install them separately and let the few that wanted to use both to simply register for both. it would only be a one time thing and the they would be automatically logged in to either one or both when they visited as long as they set it up for that.

Here's a maintained WP side extension: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-w3all- ... tegration/ As always you'll need to get support for it on the WP side: https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/wp ... ntegration

I also happen to think that someone should create an extension both for 3.1 and 3.2 ... ! Basically for 3.2 now
