I’m rebuilding/upgrading a site that has a long list of requirements.
The site has eCommerce with eStore (love it!) and a paid-members-only area for assorted content, including a bulletin board. The bulletin board is phpBB3 and because of the sheer volume of content in it that members want to browse through, we can’t start from scratch. I tried importing it into bbPress and it Just. Didn’t. Work. It has to stay in phpBB3 format for continuity.
I found a plugin called WP United that beautifully integrates the bulletin board into my WP theme and synchronizes the phpBB3 login info with WP login info. By itself, it’s really great.
When I added on eMember and activated it, the entire site broke. So I deactivated the login synchronization function in WP United and the site was back. But even accessing the forum page, without applying any access control to it or login sync, generates the following error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined method Emember_Auth::acl() in C:inetpubvhostsrikupgrade.comhttpdocsforumindex.php on line 25
Clearly, eMember is trying to access the phpBB login info and can’t reach it. The question is, where do you declare the phpBB objects in eMember? (I was hoping (praying?) that eMember and WP Untied would sync login info only with WP’s main database and function independently. Not so much. Any ideas would be appreciated, and yes, I am cross-posting this on WP United’s support board as well.
Required info: WP 3.5.1
WP United 0.9.2
No other obvious conflicts with any other plugins or themes.January 28, 2013 at 1:23 pm #53388sdocpubSpectator
Following up after more research this morning.
WP United works by forcing user login authentication to the (separate) phpBB database, rather than the WP user table. Fine by me, so long as the variables are passed to make the widgets work (login, member info display, etc)
So it looks like a possible solution would be to make eMember suthenticate to that database as well.
I’m not a high-level developer but I can follow directions to make modifications where needed.January 29, 2013 at 1:23 am #53389adminKeymaster
Hi, eMember does not have any kind of integration available for phpBB (we don’t advertise it either). You will need some custom development for this. Please use this form to get in touch with us:
