    Some notes for using with WP2.7 and phpBB3:

    phpbb Topics Table Name will be "phpbb3_topics"

    Be sure to check the FAQ, especially pertaining to excluding a forum from the list. Is there a way to exclude multiple forums from the list? Maybe the author will answer...

    Cool, thank you!

    I have one problem, and that is that the time displayed does not match the time shown on my forums, it's three hours ahead for some reason. I don't know PHP, but is it possible to format the date as something like "F j, Y - g{-3}:i a"? Would that display PST time instead of Bangkok time or whatever it's showing? Thanks.

    I have a problem with this.
    I have been searching the net high and low for about 3 weeks now for a way to display the recent topics from a phpbb3 forum into wordpress 2.7.1. So far i have tried EVERYTHING and the closest i've come to getting it working was by using the iframe method posted elsewhere.

    I have tried this method, phpbb_recent_topics, activated the plugin, entered the php code and nothing. The code either displays the code itself and not the output or shows nothing at all.

    Can WordPress 2.7.1 actually run php? Im certainly starting to doubt it and have yet to see a working version of phpbb3 topics in a wordpress theme.
    Can anyone show me the light and enlighten me please as im not sure if im chasing something that doesn't work here and wasting my time.

    WordPress version: 2.7.1
    Theme: pixeled
    phpBB3 running on same server.

    Hi c3ptik,

    Did you give WordPress access to your phpbb database? See: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/phpbb-recent-topics/other_notes/

    Yes. Well, i tried but could not get past that part. I kept getting the following error when running the query.
    #1142 - GRANT command denied to user.....
    I googled it regarding this plugin but there was no resolution. Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    I've come to the conclusion that i just cannot get wordpress to show any kind of php code whatsoever. If i enter additional php codes (like this one) in the sidebar.php, the index.php, anywhere, it wont show any output code at all. I have no idea why not but im willing to part a small paypal amount to anyone who can help me out on this. I'll grant them permission to my wp to help out.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    I would guess you're running the command as the wrong user.
    you need to login as your phpbb or root user and run the command and GRANT access to the WordPress user.
    HTH.

    This is all in MySQL (phpMyAdmin) right?

    I appreciate your help on this.

    yep, look at your phpbb config.php find:

    $dbname = 'phpbbdb';
    $dbuser = 'bbuser';
    $dbpasswd = 'bbpassword';

    open phpMyAdmin, log in as bbuser , select the database phpbbdb. You have now logged into you mySQL db "as" the phpbb user.

    open wp-config.php find:

    define('DB_USER', 'wp_user');     // Your MySQL username

    back in phpMyAdmin you need to run the command below ...I think the interface changes depending on the version phpMyadmin so I can't be specific where you paste...

    GRANT SELECT ON phpbbdb.phpbb_topics TO wp_user@localhost;

    Change phpbbdb & wp_user as necessary.
    Good luck!
