The Forum had been updated and running smoothly without much problem. Spamming should be keep to a minimum or rather moderated. If any member still face problem, kindly post your comment to >> viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6217 or create a new thread in >> viewforum.php?f=41


Now I'm looking to the integration of Wordpress and phpBB3.

SgB runs on 2 platform:
Wordpress - as the main news/articles section and streaming to FaceBook,
phpBB3 - the Forum section.

Because of 2 platform, members are in 2 different database, hence I didn't allow cross-registration.

To strengthen the community, the 2 platform must be merge, in terms of membership.

There are a few method, and I narrowed it down to:
1.) convert phpBB3 to bbPress
2.) install a bridge to link wordpress and phpBB3

Other consideration includes link to SgB FaceBook and Tweets.

The above might take slightly longer due to the vast information I gathered over the past few days. Needed time to do testing on my local server before uploading it into operation.

I'm open to all suggestion...

OK... did a first try on bridging auth mode for Wordpress and phpBB3. Fail...!

Was trying "PHPBB Single Sign On". Authentication works on a fresh installation on my local server, but fail when I load up into SgB.

Well... had to read into the WP phpBB Bridge >> http://www.e-xtnd.it/wp-phpbb-bridge/

Had tried a few script to bridge the blog and forum... fail~!

Looking at converting blog and forum to cms joomla or other alternative script...

Joomla is a Content Management System (CMS) that also integrate phpBB. Will read through carefully and see how feasible it is to migrate Wordpress to Joomla.

Not sure what's wrong with the Facebook link, but it shows:
