WP phpBB Bridge
PHPBB - WordPress Synchronization (17 posts)

    Plugin states:

    Adds new users to WordPress user table from the phpBB3 user table.

    At what point does that happen? Do they have to login the first time using Users Widget?
    What if they login using Forum only - will they be added to WP Users?

    Also:
    Is it possible to bridge user deletion too?
    So when I delete user from PHPBB - that would delete them from WP too?

    Does anyone else having problems using this plugin? When I active this plugin all new comments that users leave on my webapge automatically move to last category and are visible as comments on all my posts not just the one being commented.

    Another problem - recent topics on forum.

    Example:
    say I choose forums 3, 1, 25, 23 to get updates from.
    Right now it will list all posts from 1, then all posts from 3 ,.....

    What I want instead (and that would make sense):
    List most recent topics from all of them (1,3,23,25) arranged so that the latest would be first.

    Any idea on how to resolve my issue? Your plugin works excellent for me if you take out this little issue.

    Ok, ok:

    @maxminzer:

    Do they have to login the first time using Users Widget?

    The user come first time into your web site.

    Lets say for now that he is into phpBB. The user is loging into phpBB, then he moved into the WordPress as he is browsing your web site. The WP phpBB Bridge plugin check if the user is logged in into phpBB and then create a new session for the same user into WordPress. Finally if the user not exists in WordPress database, the WP phpBB Bridge will generate a new user with the same username as the one in phpBB site.

    Is it possible to bridge user deletion too?

    The user cannot deleted automaticly from WordPress database.

    Does anyone else having problems using this plugin? When I active this plugin all new comments that users leave on my webapge automatically move to last category and are visible as comments on all my posts not just the one being commented.

    Us I know until now there is no user with problem similar to yours

    @larrybertleman

    is it possible to have users log into the WP site and be automatically singed in to the phpbb forum?

    No. This is no possible. This is a WordPress plugin and not a phpBB module, so we don't have the ability to make a lot of functionality into plugin to handle phpBB tasks.

    @DavidGMII

    What about transferring existing wordpress users to phpbb?

    Is not posible to move WordPress users into phpBB. The main problem of making that move is the password hash. Because both WordPress and phpBB using deferent hashing keys/methods is not posible to transfer that users, while they will need to make a password reset.

    Thank you so much for a wonderful plugin! :D You're awesome!
    You saved me so much time and hassle with this plugin. It works totally great on my site.
    Looking forward to updating to a new version today.

    May be I should read more, but is it possible to have same avatars on PHPBB and WordPress automatically? Extract/copy what people have in PHPBB or WordPress so they don't have to edit both profiles.
    I'm not totally sure what I want though ;)

    I have a existing wordpress site that is about two years old and we are wanting to use phpbb.

    We have existing admins and users. Are you saying existing admins would not be able to sign into the phpbb bridge or be imported in any way?

    Hey!

    I´v got some problem getting my bridge running as I want it to. When I add the widget user, it doesent show, at all. I´v got the same problem with some other widgets, some works, some doesent. I´v also been trying to do this on another theme, without success.

    What to do?

    Kindly regards
