Doesn't seem to work no matter what I do and the only way to get support it would seem, is if you pay for it through their website.......

This is how an intergration module should work
By , for WP 3.9.2

The is the example of what an integration module should do and provides all the features. Worked great right out of the box for us. I would like to see a little better on the theme integration like being able to force a fixed header. also be able to show the wp dashbaord menu. other wise works great.

I am using is as PHPBB inside WordPress.

WP-United: Forum does not launch after CSS integration
By ,

does not work as soon as you do the css integration.
forum never launches!

A must-have plugin!
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is an excellent plugin!

Since there aren't that many actively supported MODs for phpBB, I have to do certain things through WordPress such as adding a calendar with the possibility for users to add their events.

Thankfully this plugin lets me synchronise phpBB accounts with WordPress so that users that register on my forum can make use of the aforementioned WordPress features without having to make a separate account for that.

I hope you will continue to update and support this plugin as this is a must-have for any decent site built on WordPress with a phpBB forum! :)

Great Concept, if it only worked!
By , for WP 3.9.1

Every time you try to change a setting, you have to re-set your phpbb3 installation path. In addition, many of the features don't work. Also, a lot of code blocks were never closed, leaving compatibility issues with other themes, plugins, or widgets

After six months of use
By , for WP 3.8.2

Concept of WP-United is great. It also worked ALMOST well out of the box, but needed some customizing both PHPbb and WordPress side before I could go live with it. I also used separate templating on phpBB and WP to avoid problems.

After using WP-United for over 6 months on our live phpBB3 & WP website I can't recommend WP-United to anyone for live usage. The plugin is actually ABANDONED as there is no response on developer website or at support forums.

If you're not good yourself in modifying and updating phpBB3 and WP codewise, it's just too risky to use this plugin.

Great Job!!

Very nicely done work. As a developer with experience I would say that this is quite complicated implementation. It is not easy to integrate phpBB forum into WordPress template. Unfortunately not a lot of people understand the level of complexity. They do not understand the fact that website is hard work and expecting to have everything for granted.
jhong thank you for this plugin. I successfully implemented it on our website http://wpaam.com. Works great with minor issues which I hope you'll help me to resolve. But this is another conversation.
Keep working on it and think about payed either version or support.
