Where the 'latest posts', 'my posts' will be displayed? Will it go to phpbb or they'll be showed within jomsocial's profile page?
Features' requests:
- add activity to jomsocial's activity stream when a new post/reply is made in phpbb
- add/remove points when members start new topic/reply to posts/delete posts

It is almoust ready, testing now... 8)

The problem is that it is impossible to synch friends from JomSocial to phpBB. Right now if you add/remove friend in phpBB - this friend is also added/removed from your JS account (you can also setup 'Auto-approve phpBB friends' setting). But JS doesn't have ability to synch its friends actions, so deleting friend in JS won't delete friend in phpBB.

There is a trick how to force JS to do it, but it requires time :(

Next problem is phpBB signature: impossible to make it full featured like for our CB integration.

Does PHPBB3 have to be in the same database as JomSocial or can they be 2 separate databases? If one, can it be modified to allow 2 databases?
