phpbb_recent_topics

This plugin grabs your recent phpBB forum topics for you to display in wordpress.

Is phpBB3 Supported ?

Yes.

Can I output 10 Topics in my Page, and 3 Topics in my Sidebar ?

Yes ! In the WordPress menu 'Options' -> 'phpBB Recent Topics', set 'The number of topics to show' to 10, and then in your sidebar include...

`<?php
    if (function_exists('phpbb_topics')) {
        phpbb_topics(3);
    } 
?>`

Can I exclude a certain forum from the list ?

Yes, use the new 0.5.x feature in the admin settings

Why do I get - Sorry you do not have access to this page?

You're not an Administrator

Why is the date config under settings not in the widget configuration?

The date settings effect both the template tag and the widget

What is Insecure MySQL Connectivity ?

Some people cannot GRANT priveliges from one DB to another; insecure connectivity allows you to store the phpbb database credentials within the WordPress database.

Why is Insecure MySQL Connectivity Insecure?

The phpbb database credentials are stored in the WordPress database in CLEAR TEXT, this is bad, as anyone with access to the WP DB can get full access to phpbb. Another reason is that usually the credentials given to the phpbb application are FULL access, we only need to read the database, so it's much better to restrict access.

Can I connect to a phpbb databse on a different server?

Yes, use the Insecure Connectivity method, and change the host to the IP address of the server
