What would be the easiest way to integrate phpBB into our website for support?

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.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

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.
