I am not existing user of phpBB, but I am interested in having a support forum on my website. My website is about home renovations and general contracting services and it is using a WordPress script.
What I wanted to know is that, if I install phpBB forum on my domain lets say .ca/forum then is it possible to sync the registered users of WordPress and the phpBB forum?
If anyone registered on my WordPress blog, he should be able to use the same login details to login on the forum without requiring to register again on the forum using same details. And if anyone registered on my forum, he should be able to login to WordPress blog to participate in the discussions. Is it possible?
I know this is possible if I use BuddyPress or bbPress, but I have never used those forums and I don't know how to work with those. I am familiar with phpBB and SMF as I have used both the scripts in past and I know different mods and I can manage the member's groups and their permissions very efficiently as compared to bbPress or BuddyPress.
