Question about Groups

Post by BryanG » August 25th, 2013, 6:32 pm

I would like to create a group for "Supporting Members" on my site, both in Joomla and pbpBB. Supporting Members would pay yearly for Supporting Member access, have a special forum badge, etc.

The question I have is...if their group is downgraded in Joomla (say, using a 3rd Party membership extension), will the downgrade automatically carry over to phpBB?

3rd Party membership extension should use native Joomla JUser->save() method, in this case the bridge will know about changes in user's group and automatically assign/remove user from associated phpBB group.

Very good, thanks! In the process of setting up my forums now.

Awesome piece of software...works seamlessly! 8)

The only think I wish is that you could use more styles with it when you use use Joomla as the wrapper. :??:

Unfortunately, it's not easy to modify styles and this can affect extension price, so better keep it minimized.
