Here is a nice idea, how about adding the ability to integrate PHPBB into opencart for store sites that might want to create a more active customer community !!!

One registration gives both login access.....maybe just add the "module" to put a FORUM link on the site.

Me too, I posted about this a while back.

Iframing it, while would work, is far from ideal, I'd be after a proper integration of the forum into the site theme.

this is easy todo.

just create a new folder and install phpbb.

now open up catalog/view/theme/default/template/common/header.tpl

place a link to the forum.

Yes, that is an obvious method, I was thinking a true integration, so that the forum sits in where the content section of OpenCart is.

And that when people set up an account this is also usable for phpBB.

what you are talking about is a bridge. As far as I know no one has created one of these yet.

Well i can share my exp with bridging cakephp app and phpbb3

So in my app i have a vendor:

Code: Select all

	
function conectAndGetPhpbb3() {
		define('IN_PHPBB', true);
		global $phpbb_root_path, $phpEx, $db, $config, $user, $auth, $cache, $template;
		$phpbb_root_path = 'forum/';
		$phpEx = substr(strrchr(__FILE__, '.'), 1);
		include($phpbb_root_path . 'common.' . $phpEx);
	}

Тhis is almost everything you need to share the session, i still use all of the phpbb3 registration and login functionality, so my app just use the phpbb user table


so... the plan to bridge phpbb3 and opencart i think is to make opencart use/sync with the user table and practically when user register to open cart you can add a user in the phpbb :P
Well surely when i have more time i'm gonna play with this but in the moment i'm having much work with opencart itself adding some really needed filter module, and making a custom template...

This would be great and once one has been created it could easily be adapted to work with other Forums including MyBB.

I would love a MyBB one :)

I think an easier method would be to just do as Daniel say and then make a simple module that displays active posts or whatever you wanted - you'd only have to access the phpBB database then and wouldn't involve breaking opencart or phpbb when you upgrade either of them - which WOULD happen at some point.

This seems to have dropped off the radar.
Pity.

I too would be interested to integrate phpBB with my shops to allow support and community forums using the same login info.
