Social Network Extension for 3.2?

Post by ThereIsAWay » Wed Sep 19, 2018 4:16 pm

Hello, I'm wanting to use PHPBB 3.2 to create a type of social network. Is there any way to do this, or an extension for this? I saw that there was an older one for 3.0, but I'm not seeing one that works with the newest PHPBB version.

Any advice? Thanks in advance!

I think you will need to explain how your definition of "social network" differs from everyone else's as most on here would already consider phpBB as a social network

Thta's a portal. I think that's not free so you can buy it or search for a free alternative.

why not install a social networking script and then add phpbb as the bulletin board for it.
after all, phpbb is basically just a bulletin board script.

Check softaculous demo. You will find a lot of social networking scripts for free. There is also phpFox, which I think is a paid but a good option.

Be careful recommending softaculous stuff, their auto-installers are known to cause issues, have a browse round here there are many instances. Also, they don't support their installers nor do the majority of hosts that use softaculous.

I was directing the user towards Softaculous demo which is a demo website of Softaculous. That is one great place to find and test free software. Later, it is upon the user how to install the software :)

Social networking sites are listed here

There is also CMBB developed by Ger.

Also I'm developing MX-Publisher CMS witch is working standalone not requiring phpBB, but is still in development.

just a quick glance but it looks like that would still work on phpbb 3.2.3

there are only a couple of file edits and then copy the MOD files over. the database edits are only added tables, no changes I saw to the existing tables etc.

I will test it after while to see how it works.

yep, followed all those instructions. tried to run the database update file but it just errored out because the directory/file it is looking for is no longer in phpbb.
then all I could get was a blank page.
had to overwrite all the 3.2.3 files with new ones to fix it.

sorry but it just doesn't work as is. somebody will have to use it to create an extension and I don't have the skills for that.
