I’d like to use eMember as my membership portal into my site. Once someone becomes a member, they will then have access to a PHPBB forum. I’d love it if they’d only have to sign in using eMember and then be automatically signed into the forum as well.
Is this possible? If so, how? Thank you!

Hi Dave, we don’t have a feature for integrating eMember with PHPBB forum software. Do you know if PHPBB forum works with WordPress user roles?March 11, 2014 at 2:05 am #61432
My research has pointed me to this as far as WP and PHPBB Single sign-on integration.
But I figure that was separate and different from eMember’s integration. Any ideas on how to make it happen would be super appreciated!March 11, 2014 at 4:40 am #61433
You should be able to use the following feature of eMember and get it working:March 12, 2014 at 4:15 am #61434
Thanks but that doesn’t really help. The explanation in that link doesn’t instruct how to make eMember enable single sign-on integrated with PHPBB. This would be an amazing feature to add to eMember!!March 13, 2014 at 2:35 am #61435
The idea is that it will automatically create a WP User account whenever someone signs up as an eMember user. That single sign-on plugin then takes care of the rest in terms of connecting that WP User will the PHPBB System.
Yes it is not a specific integration for PHPBB but I thought it is something you could try. If we get a lot of requests for PHPBB integration, we will look into this more:March 26, 2014 at 12:59 am #61436
Hi there, I also tried to use the E-member with buddy press but it seemed they clashed.
I’d love it if you had an integration. Just my vote!March 26, 2014 at 3:43 am #61437
I know that a few users are using buddypress and eMember together. Can you please give some more details on what area/functionality seem to clash on your install?April 13, 2014 at 3:40 am #61438
Hi , thanks for your response. Whenever I activate buddypress, some of my pages don’t show up until I click on them several times (which, my customers aren’t going to want to do).April 14, 2014 at 3:07 am #61439
That doesn’t happen when you deactivate eMember? When you say “it doesn’t show”, do you mean that you see a black page?
It is probably a good idea to do the following (just in case):April 16, 2014 at 5:58 pm #61440
It was a 400 Error. Actually, I didn’t test it with e-member deactivated. I deactivated Buddypress and everything together and when I activated it again was definitely that program. Maybe it’s my theme. Regardless I unplugged BuddyPress altogether. E-member is more important for me to have running than buddy press, and buddypress is a bit messy. Instead I just created some blog posts as forum pages.
The only thing I really wanted with Buddypress was the ability for members to put more “about me” information into their profile (hobbies, goals, et). Is there any way I can get e-member to do that?April 17, 2014 at 5:43 am #61441
Yeah, you can use custom fields to collect extra info from your members. Your members can update it from the edit profile page.
Take a look at the bottom of the following registration page to learn how to use custom fields:October 4, 2014 at 3:44 am #61442jk28147Member
It is my believe that it would be very helpful for your sales of e.member plugins if the work with buddy-press. I for myself would like to work both of them together since the great potential for forums chat and messaging for my members.October 4, 2014 at 11:05 pm #61443
If you enable the following options then it should work fine with buddypress:
