customizing phpbb forum views?

11 years 8 months ago #50498 by altoidboy
Joomla 1.0.13, CB 1.1.

i haven't yet installed the phpbb connector. i have a question about it first.

in cb, i've designed special multicheckboxes during registration: "blue team" "red team" "green team" etc...and each user is checkboxed to one or more teams (groups).

if i install phpbb (probably the last version of v2, but i'm open to v3) and the phpb connector plug-in, is there any way i can instruct phpbb or the connector plug-in to ONLY display certain forums to certain teams, in other words the "red forum" to only "red team" members, etc...?

CB Connector v2 has replaced the older phpbb connector.

It does support phpbb2 and phpbb3, but unfortunately it does not support 'groups' yet in phpbb.

I am sure you already know but the way to setup your forum is to setup usergroups with the specified users and set forums to be only viewable/postable (as the admin desires).. by setting the permissions in phpbb.

I am planning on handling sync of custom profile fields in the future... but had not directly thought about this case yet... off the top of my head I am not exactly sure how to implement it this way yet... but still working.

If interested register at, then once I approve your account post a "feature request" in the Mantis bug tracker so I don't miss this in the future...
