1: The bridge works as usual Joomla component, you can setup it to wrapped mode (frameless integration) and assign modules to forum menu item as usual.
2: The license works forever, but download of updates and support is available for 1 year. We always maintain the main Joomla version and i.e. support for Joomla 1.5 is over.
Joomla 3.0 will appear around this summer and we will immediately start developing the version for it, but bridge for Joomla 2.5.x will be also supported and maintained, at least while Joomla 2.5.x is maintained by Joomla team.

Hello.

1. Here is physical structure of my site:

www/bankomatchik.ru/forum/

Is that ok that the name of Phpbb3 is just "forum"? I'm worried because your SEF links begin from /forum/.

2. Names of themes have cyrillic characters. It will be automatically convert to latin symbols in SEF links?

1. phpBB folder name should be different than bridge menu item alias, please either change alias to 'forums' or change phpBB folder name (don't forget to change phpBB setting 'Script path' after this).

2. Yes, the bridge has setting "Non-ASCII chars replacements" where Cyrillic chars are already pre-defined with their English substitutes.

We didn't test it but I guess it should work.
If not - we will apply all our efforts.

I'm wondering is there is a way to have the name of the website in the forum titles after thread names, like this ex: Shoes and Money - Website Name ?

Hello,
I am one step away from purchasing this bridge. Here are my questions;
1.I have two joomla sites with two forums. One is in joomla 2.5.16 and the other is in 3.2. Can I use the same extension in both sites or there are diffirences? The 2.5 site is live. The other (3.2) is for tests and I am using it as a test before I move my content in there....
2.Do I have to buy two licences for theese sites? They are personal sites.....
3.Can I use paysafe card? I procceded once and I didn't notice such an option
4.When in "stand-alone mode" can I have the joomla header in my forum or not?
5.Is there a try-before-you-buy-version?
PS. Please forgive me for my poor english
Thank you!

Yes, the bridge works with both Joomla 2.5 and 3.2 (though note that 3.2 has bugs with passwords, so better use 3.1.5 for now).
2.Do I have to buy two licences for theese sites? They are personal sites.....
One license is enough.
3.Can I use paysafe card? I procceded once and I didn't notice such an option
Please check possible payment methods here:

4.When in "stand-alone mode" can I have the joomla header in my forum or not?
No, only phpBB style is displayed in stand-alone mode.
5.Is there a try-before-you-buy-version?
Sorry, we don't have trial version.
