Requesting some advice on CB + phpbb3 + Joomla 1.7

7 years 11 months ago - 7 years 11 months ago #172316 by jgardounis
Hello guys, I would like some advice:

I have an old SMF site/forum. I am currently building a new version of this site with Joomla 1.7, with CB1.7 and phpBB3.

In order for the users to be able to log in on both site and forum with one username, I used jFusion. Unfortunately it didnt connect the profiles of the users as well.

Then, I found this jFusion CB integration plug-in which I used, but still I can't seem to make the profile show the forum avatar.

My questions are:

1) Is there a way to connect the avatars between the phpbb3 and the cb?

2) Is there a more compatible forum which is also compatible to phpbb templates? I have done the template for the phpbb3 forum and I really really dont want to redo it all over again.

3) Can I make it so that the from the site I can view the forum profile of the user (meaning the data/fields/etc) but using the site's visual template?

Unfortunately I have not had a chance to update CB Connector since Joomla! 1.5 came out. Needless to say I can not guarantee that it works with Joomla! 1.7 (or 1.6 either).

Until I get a chance to get back on CB Connector the forum which probably integrates best with Joomla (as far as I know) is Kunena. The same forum that they use here on

I actually tried it and unfortunately it is 100% incompatible with Joomla 1.7, at its present state. Are there any plans for producing a 1.7 compatible version? Will it be soon (-ish)?

I do plan to upgrade the component but have some other higher priorities at the moment.
