Adding new blog entries as post to PHPBB (5 posts)

    I'm looking for a way to automaticly let wordpress create a new topic in one of my forums when I publish a new article so forum users can discuss the article.

    I'm thinking about using the feeds, since the way the feeds are show is a nice way for a forum post, title as topic title and excerpt and link to full article as post content.

    At the phpbb support forums there was no clue on how to do this. Maybe someone here can help me out..

    Thanks

    Hmmm, I found out it's possible but then my PHPBB forum and wordpress need to be on the same domain like this:

    hxxp://www.domain.com/wp
    hxxp://www.domain.com/forum

    but currently it's like this and I can't change it anymore.

    hxxp://forum.domain.com
    hxxp://www.domain.com/wp

    anyone?

    It would just be sole lines additional sql statement in the wordpress script, something like INSERT INTO $database.phpbb_posts ..." - its not that hard.

    pretty weird. IPB has inbuilt support to add rss feeds as independent posts on the forum.
