Little delay, sorry i had to finish with the phpBB updates into WP without to reload the WP page.
I will log opening a new topic, this new(?) way to integrate things, and future coming features.

It is amazing to see that if a new post/topic has been inserted by someone into phpBB (i test it doing a post into another tab) it is after seconds updated also into the WP last topics wordpress widget, onto the other tab, without to have to reload the page.
It works using cookies/js/php (and the WP heartbeat hook, which could be also be easily not used), and a little trick to not waste resources, so that the call to get updates into phpBB that happen in the background, is done only and if, there are new posts/topics, and not if there are not.
I will explain the automation of the process and how it has been coded asap.

While the fast procedure to be up and running with the iframe by shortcode template integration is coming!

The 2.8.3 release will be very soon. I am very happy to have take the integration to be practically, i am quite sure, working fine mixed with any other plugin or scenario by default, and about template integration, into any theme.

In the while, just to be sure, have you never read this?

The awesome iframe template integration using shortcode

https://www.axew3.com/w3/2022/02/the-aw ... shortcode/

Substantially, doing a template integration by shortcode, you have to
add overall_header and footer js code, into phpBB, as described here (like for the page-forum):

then read this (and follow all hints!): https://www.axew3.com/w3/2022/02/the-aw ... shortcode/
Then create into wordpress a page where you'll add the shortcode.
The page slug of this page need to be added into related plugin option
The (awesome) iframe template integration using shortcode
and read the inline hints!

If any problem, please just post a new topic, i will follow you and so we'll setup in the while an easy guide for anybody!

I think I will need a video tutorial.
It's a bit complicated for me to follow your steps because I get confused in doing things with such long texts.
Also I speak English and I have to translate things xD.
I would be super grateful if you make a video tutorial so I can follow your steps.
I find it much easier this way.

It seem too hard to setup a video showing the process of the awesome template integration using shortcode, while doing it manually, it is like to follow just few easy steps: if it is out of your ability (that's not a crime of course!) to accomplish on doing the procedure as it is explained, i am really sorry! :(
