The phpBB3 Joomla bridge component provides almost full synchronization between Joomla and forum profiles with Community builder support without any changes of core files.

Please note that we can't guarantee our bridge proper functioning with any 3-rd party mod installed on forum.

  • log out user from phpBB when he's logged out from Joomla
  • auto register Joomla user in forum when he's logged in Joomla
  • change phpBB profile when changing in Joomla
