For instance, Joomla membership levels are set up using one of the membership/subscriptions components like "Nice memberships", "Payplans" or "OSE Memberships", with three different levels bronze, silver and gold. And, there are separate forums in phpBB for bronze, silver and gold. Are those membership/subscription levels respected with this p8pBB bridge?
If not, is it planned for future development? If so, are there any incompatibilities with any of the membership components?
I make the same groups in phpbb3 and joomla, then use noixACL / AEC
These are both joomla 1.5 Native what i use. I've tried many others and this does the job. took me awhile to set it up but worth it.
noixACL = joomla permissions. for components / modules / menus / backend access.. etc..
AEC = Membership Component which integrates into phpbb3 / jomsocial and about 15 other types of components with joomla. Setup permissions in joomla with noixACL then use AEC to move users into the usergroup of the VIP forums when they pay for it. I currently use this setup on joomla 1.5 native. Works like a charm.
If you wanna see my setup, u can try a test account on my website iv been using to test the permissions, and making sure the users are transfered in phpbb3 vip forums Username: Test1 Password: 123123
its working 100% on my website at the moment.

You can see the membership area of AEC, it has a Details page / invoice page which is currently disabled at the moment, and once u login and goto the forums u can see the membership on the side menu, Then goto the forums of CrossFire Hacks / Combat Arms Hacks and u can see that it has the vip features they pay for. Im currently in the process of using noicACL to display VIP links to the VIP forums for the usergroup they pay for, that way its easily accessable. If you want i can help you set this up, but not for free as it will take alot of work to get it working on your website properly and making sure it syncs right, if u have "Akeeba Backup Pro" then i would suggest you buying that, the pro version allows u to backup your full website + phpbb3 forum databases.. The Lite free version only does joomla, so if u want i can get this up for u, for a reasonable price. just got layed off a few weeks ago and could use a lil cash
