Download link to the phpBB WP United Mod v.
By , for WP 4.3.1

Hello! My forum version is 3.0.14, so phpBB MODs and don’t work. Can anybody share download link to the phpBB WP United Mod v. Thanks a lot!

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

Do not install unless you know what you are doing.

I like the plugin's features, but there is a bug where it doesn't work with certain themes.

Works but has issues

It installed fine and looks to be working ok if you use a basic theme for phpBB. I tried using a theme from RocketTheme that requires it's own RokBB module and it breaks the theme integration with fetal errors, but it will still work if you disable theme integration.

The project looks promising, but for some reason, the author seems to have decided to abandon it. It looks like it had great potential.

Doesn't work

Installation for this is NOT extremely easy, it is NOT extremely quick as some other poster said.

And apart from that all that happens is a 'white screen of death ' the second you activate the plugin - stunning. This plugin has worked at one time and if it were actually stable it would be a nice plugin - but it doesn't.

No replies have been made by the author, no updates have been posted addressing this matter, so on the whole I can't really say that support is terribly good.
