Works great with phpBB 3.0.11
By , for WP 4.1.1

Perfect plugin to bridge WP and phpBB. Plugin creates a seamless transition from WP to phpBB. It took a bit to find automod and WP-United-phpBB module required for the plugin to work. The mods and phpBB package files are located here http://www.wpzoan.com/wp-united-forum-plugin-a-wordpress-phpbb-bridge/ . Everything you'll need to get the plugin up and running

Working Great With 4.1.1 and phpbb 3.0.12
By , for WP 4.1.1

This mod works just like it says, the only thing I ran into was some styling issues on theme integration.

I just finished setting this up for: http://spiritloveforum.com Check it out if you wanna see a preview

Before you integrate themes make sure you have the CSS slider all the way off to the left.

I'm giving this plugin 3 stars for lack of support and they took off the link to the phpbb automod package which is REQUIRED for this mod to work.

I have uploaded it to my server for anyone interested here: http://spiritloveforum.com/kingsblend/wp-united-release-phpbb.zip

The phpbb mod ONLY works for version 3.0.x

Does not work: NO SUPPORT - Developer has abandoned
By , for WP 4.1.1

Tried the mod.
Could not get it to work.
No support.
Look at dates... it's clear the developer has abandoned this mod.

I am going to re-do my site and get rid of this, it changed too many configuration files and i want a clean install with no WP-United residue.

WOULD BE INTERESTED IN WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE MIGRATING TO.

Thank you for anybody else writing their experience.

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.
