    Hi, so the latest version of WP 3.9 is not compatible with WP-United, are there plans to update the plugin to 3.9 standards? TX!!

    nata-lee on the WP-United forums found a fix, I've noted it in my blog thread linked above.

    Hello, I think posting a solution here is a good idea. So:

    Relpace this line
    file core-patcher.php
    line 273
    $cSet = str_replace('$wp->init()', 'function wpu_deferred_wp_load() { $GLOBALS[\'wp\']->init()', $cSet);

    with this
    $cSet = str_replace('$GLOBALS[\'wp\']->init()', 'function wpu_deferred_wp_load() { $GLOBALS[\'wp\']->init()', $cSet);

    and
    Don't forget to empty all the files (other than .htaccess and cache_readme.txt) from the /wp-content/plugins/wp-united/cache folder - otherwise you'll still get the white screen of death on your forum. (by ConfusedTA)

    Good luck!

    I installed this plugin recently. I changed the line in the core-patcher but when I try to activate, it tells me I need a modification package and I have to download it from the developer's homepage but unfortunately the homepage is offline and archive.org does not provide a valid version.

    Can anyone help me and tell me where I can download this mod, other then the developers homepage?

    Kind regards.

    Sajonara, could you tell me a version of the plugin for wordpress and version of the wp-united mod for phpbb?
    Do you need wp-united mod for phpbb, right?

    http://nata-lee.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/wp-united-release-full_fixed.zip

    Patched files:
    core-patcher.php for compability with WordPress 3.9
    install.xml to get smiles and bbcodes buttons work

    Also you may need patched js files to get work user integration UI:

    nata-lee THANK YOU SO MUCH! We are in the middle of race season when our phpBB is most active. I upgraded to WP3.9 without thinking about wp-united integration.

    Your fix and your willingness to share your fix is appreciated.

    So using the fix that nata-lee provided, integration is fixed again, however after even clearing the cache, there remains one persistent problem. New users who just sign up will get the white screen of death when trying to post.

    Hello nata-lee,

    I'm trying to implement a brand new phpBB forum onto my wordpress site @ http://www.simracingoz.com

    I have never installed a phpBB forum before and am worried that doing this I might break the main website...

    Could you offer any help?

    Hello PhillR76,

    If you've never installed phpbb before it might be the best practice to install it independently to another hosting just to figure out what this engine is.
    Also if you'll install phpbb into /forum or another folder at your main hosting, it can't break your live website by itself until you'll try to connect it to it by wp-united.

    So the best practise is make a copy of your live website, move it to a test hosting, install wp-united plugin.
    Then install phpbb to a child folder, install wp-united mod. Then try to connect website and forum to each other and debug any problem. Some issues could be in the theme integration module and maybe you'll have to create new template files for your theme to make look the website and the forum great.
    Then decide how would you like to use the user integration: create and integrate accounts for existing users, test login/logout process and user rights. It's very important to note that phpbb at this moment is going to be the main engine in the user management process.

    Well, if it went ok, you can repeat this steps at your main website.
    If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    Sorry for the delay in responding guys -- and thank you very much nata-lee for posting some solutions.

    It's been a long year... I will post a fuller explanation on wp-united.com shortly.

    The core patcher is updated, I've made a quick release as v0.9.2.6. There are still a few other bugs I need to get to; will try to do so ASAP.

    rfactorrallyepista, what is your php version? At your first screen it is look like you have Safe Mod enabled... You could try to disable this parameter at the php.ini

    Also it says, you have no access rights for the destination folder (the first screen, the first error at the second line). So you should try to check your access rights. https://www.phpbb.com/kb/article/phpbb3-chmod-permissions/
