The phpBB3 Joomla bridge component provides almost full synchronization between Joomla and forum profiles with Community builder support without any changes of core files. Imagine how easily you can install the bridge to your Joomla site, how easily you can upgrade it and how easily you can install any other 3rd party components because of no core files changes!
Please note that we can't guarantee our bridge proper functioning with any 3-rd party mod installed on forum.
