Looks nice. I currently use this MediaWiki extension and I guess many people use it because it's the only one I know of. It's a bit outdated and has some issues. Seems to me that when your todo's are done, your bridge is better. Do you think you can make a script/manual to migrate from the Wiki extension to your bridge?

Awesome. MediaWiki is the nice and easy wiki to use compared to the others, so looking forward to this integration up and working.

Is it possible down the road to implement user groups/permissions for editing (contributing to existing pages), creating (new pages), and just viewing wiki pages? Maybe moderator permissions too later?

Thanks for your work on this cool integration bridge! :)

Yes, a database updater is planned.

I am still learning how MediaWiki groups and permissions work, but once I do that, then I do plan to have the group membership in MediaWiki an actual permission in phpBB. Founders in phpBB will be automatically set as a the highest level of administrator within MediaWiki.

A great mod... Looking forward to the development... ;)

I am going to freeze the feature list 5 days from this posting for version 1.0.x of this. More might be added later based on the response, however this is the last call for any feature anyone wants to see in this version of this bridge.

Two feature requests:
  • Transfer profile information from phpBB to Media wiki and vice versa.
  • Allow registration via phpBB and Media Wiki

I'm not sure how viable it is but it would be great if you could add a way to update to the newest versions of Mediawiki via the APC within phpBB?

I found an interesting thing wich could help you in the developpement of this mod, particulary concerning the dual login feature.
Follow the link above, it deals with dual login using libcurl:

The same thing from the same author is also described here:

Depending on how hacky I am willing to get with the code, it may or may not happen. It's quite tricky in light of the fact that phpBB and Mediawiki share some of the same objects identifiers.

OK, I have a couple of questions.

1) You say that this shouldn't be used in a live environment. Well, my wiki needs a forum, and I haven't found any other solution that I like, so I think I'm going to risk it anyway. What do you think is the worst-case scenario? (i.e., what particular possibilities might make this a bad idea?)

2) If this isn't based on this, is there any particular reason? (I tried using it, but it didn't work "out of the box" and I don't feel like debugging it unless I really have to.)
