Support » Plugin: BridgeDD » multi login yes, header no

  • PRO

    I am using WP 4.1 (Avada theme + UberMenu)+ phpBB 3.1 (Subway theme) and the pro version does a multi login/logout with both CMS without any additional CPU usage.

    The author will have you subscribe to his support forum with your credit card for 40$/year if you want the pro version. It’s not a 1 time fee, so you will have to cancel your subscription manually if you don’t want to pay another 40$ the next year. This information is present on his site. The fee is for being a member of his support forum, not for the plugin (pro version).

    The integration of your WP menu (header) is tricky. The plugin will fetch ALL WP menu items with it’s own HTML tags when you use twig shortcode with phpBB. This means any user role access rules with your menu or a dynamic login/logout button will not work (no styles, ALL menu items, no additional header code like for the background image).

    In case you are good with a static header/menu, you will have to manually copy all HTML/CSS/JS rules to your phpBB header (copy all code or manually select the correct code). Further you will have to update this code any time there are changes with the menu or header. You can only display static menu items.

    Multi login works, theme integration just for those who know how to include HTML and links for CSS/JS. The current approach to integrate the menu does not work correct.

    I will change my review to 5 stars as soon as the plugin is able to fetch the correct header and footer on it’s own.

    I need to address two of your comments.

    The current approach to integrate the menu does not work correct.

    This is because, as I mentioned to you on the support board, you did not enable an available option in the bridgedd_config.php file.

    I will change my review to 5 stars as soon as the plugin is able to fetch the correct header and footer on it’s own.

    Then I guess your review will remain at 4 stars since BridgeDD PRO makes no such claims. BridgeDD PRO exports the WordPress menus and widgets, which in most cases will allow you to re-create your WordPress header and footer in phpBB.

    It is possible to fetch the original IDs/classes with your WP menu (styles apply if you know how to add the correct CSS+JS), but the bridge will show ALL menu items (currently you can’t show based on e.g. logged in/logged out…it’s a static menu).

    Implementing the header is not as intuitive as described with PRO version.

    However, the bridge does work and DIONs forum support is fast and friendly.
