Pity.

I too would be interested to integrate phpBB with my shops to allow support and community forums using the same login info.
I use Vanilla forums on my OpenCart site as they have a really easy embed fuction. You just place one line of javascript on an OpenCart page and bam, instant forum. It embeds the body of the forum, so the header and footer are still your opencart site. Makes your website look more fluid.

Not sure about bridging it though so users only have to log on once. I'm sure it can be done, but well beyond the scope of my abilities. :-\

Because I am not a programmer so I do not know how to do it.

Many Thanks and regards,

Another vote for a good potential extension any developers out there? Would definitely pay to have some sort of basic function which would allow users to login to a forum with their account details.

I am now developing a phpbb-like decent enough forum module with opencart's framework. I have been doing this for a couple of months,'cause I have to build it from scratches. Now most features have been finished and I hope I can finish this long-time project within 2 weeks. It will have most features of phpbb3(user && moderator) and some it does not have. And it will come with a cache system(sql and html), which makes it run fast and reduce cup pressure.

Check this topic for update: http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=61536

VERY IMPRESSIVE thus far, marcelwoo !!!

I posted a comment in your linked thread above with some thoughts/suggestions for additional features
(if you hadn't already thought of them, that is).


KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK, marcelwoo !!!

I've followed the links on this page, but they lead to abandoned projects.

I'm looking at adding a forum to my website for customers, and I have built a forum with phpbb before - so it's my first choice for that reason.

I don't want my customer to have to create a separate forum account, so I want simple functionality to bridge the accounts over to the forum - and disable registration on the forum side.

I have searched for a while, but I can't find anything other than threads like this and abandoned projects - searching the extensions shop, phpbb yields no results!

BUMP!

The only problem by integrating this platform is that no address book are required to be filled upon account registration on that end while OpenCart does make the enforcement to new customers to assign an address. If customers from phpbb would be imported and customers are leaded to the OpenCart checkout process, it would be a bit messy since the addresses would not be assigned with the account on all imported customers but only from those who did actually filled out their information and yet to know if the entered information are still relative ones for a E-Commerce platform.

OpenCart should re-check the addresses entered either by creating a new account or during the checkout process so that it would no longer matter if customers account would be about created accounts on the same platform or rather imported accounts from another platform.

On the other way around, importing topics without having the existing customer account email address may involve missing topics which is unfortunately not a better solution at this point.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.
