install phpbb to its own directory. put a link to your support board in your wp menu. put a link back to the wp site in the phpbb menu.
if you want to bridge the users logins etc. then do a search for a wp/phpbb bridge. I think there are still a couple of them around that still work.

We did the same thing by putting it in a sub-directory and creating a custom menu in WordPress and linking. The bridge option is 4 years also and I haven't personally tested so unsure if it'll still work.

Just peeked at the code, wow, the number of "TODO" comments there is awful. :o

Code: Select all

// TODO: why this is here? look not useful and crazy 
or this:

Code: Select all

// guess (+- surely) to not build a duplicated ID
Also looking at all the other gibberish in the code I wouldn't trust this to run on my server.
My extensions:
Simple CMS, Feed post bot, Avatar Resize, Modbreak, Magic OGP, Live topic update, Modern Quote, Quoted Where (GDPR) and Autoresponder.
Newest: FAQ manager for 3.2

Like my work? Buy me a coffee to keep it coming. :ugeek:

Yep, the whole site is full of nonsense. There’s another bridge called BridgeDD PRO that supports phpBB 3.2 but it isn't free.
WordPress wrote:BridgeDD PRO supports phpBB 3.1 and phpBB 3.2.
But, I see inconsistencies where it states it doesn’t support 3.2 then in other places it says it does. A little research may be in order.

+- one year later ... hello :)
yes it is not so easy, so may not for all (despite the name), but documentation is very easy for experts and not (even if in bad Eng) ...
so are you sure this is not the more easy and powerful way, to fully integrate phpBB 3.2 or 3.3 and WordPress?
Just peeked at the code, wow, the number of "TODO" comments there is awful
many TODO are now DONE, and 2.3.6 is coming really soon

Maybe, but the fact is that the integration is secure, under any aspect:

If someone here hasn’t come up with anything better in that time I guess you’re stuck with it.

It is nice to receive a non-sense as answer. The fact i post a message answering about something i follow, where i just falls for pure case, do not mean i'm stuck into something. May you have to take a look into what u say, and show respect, since i've not 'insulted' anybody.

To be honest, I have no idea what you’re talking about whatsoever, so I’ll just ignore it.

FWIW - I haven’t insulted anyone, if I had you would have known.

I was searching for such a solution almoust for month and a half. I found some old plugins dating 12 years back forgotten, but not working with the latest versions of WP. Sad that there is no reputation buttons here :)

Yep,

Setting up a new directory for it and putting a link on your wordpress website is the easiest way. There isn't a reliable extension that helps integrate the both databases properly. If there is, its too complicated for me at least.

Was looking for a likewise solution but couldn't find it.
