PhpBB integration1 user found helpful
Is there an extension or plugin that would make it so you won't need two different accounts to C5-based website and phpbb forum? Generally speaking, I want to be able to log to both at once, with single account, any kind of deeper integration isn't needed.
Yes I've googled it but it seems that any extension either for phpbb or C5 I can find is either dead, has problems with new versions of either C5 or phpBB or is otherwise inaccessible.
Due to like, no budget, I also need a free solution and no, discussion forum from marketplace isn't an option here as I am setting it up for a friend and he wants a phpBB sauce along with C5 fries ;).
creating a auth plugin that would look into the phpBB user account list could be possible (at least for 5.7), but having it do the login stuff of phpBB could be tough.
So if you are looking for an auth plugn to let phpBB users log in onto c5 with their phpBB account, I think this is workable (not making plans or commitments here, but adding that to my to-develop-in-case-you-have-some-free-time list).
Can you be more precise on what you are looking for?
I want to completely disable phpbb's registration/login system and have users login through C5.
in that case, I don't think such a thing exists, and that would require quite some work to do …
