Authenticate in WordPress and phpBB at the same time
This plugin allows to use the password from a working phpBB installation to log into a WordPress blog. or on the other side to log into phpBB with the WordPress user.
The username for the administration must be the same on the two installations. Otherwise you will end having admins that have no privileges on the other part.
There is no actual "sync" of the users.
When the app is configured correctly. the app checks that the user who tries to log in is at least registered in one of the systems, if yes, and the password is correct : he's logged on both systems and his account is created if missing. On password change it should also set the password on both platforms.
With WP2BB, you can now define that your posts are published in a forum, so that your community can add comments directly on them.
You can add the method "wp2bb()" on your template so that you have links to your forum to add comments and a replies count
There is also a widget to list the last replies in the forums
P.S. : WP2BB was created by Alfredo de Hoces (http://www.alfredodehoces.com/)
