  • Google oauth login and iFrame

    Hi, using the sync between WP and the forum with great pleasure.

    However, I am trying to integrate the ability to login with a Google account on my forum. On the direct page of the forum (without integration and without being iFramed in the WP site) it is working. So, I can check the procedure ith Google is actually set up right. When I go to the WP site with the integrated forum, and I go to the Google login button, I get the error "Refused to display 'https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/…' in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'sameorigin'."

    Is there a way to fix this for this URL?

  • Newbie needing help

    Hi,
    I've been using Wordpress for years now, and have just decided to make use of a forum. I really like the phpBB forum, and thought the bridge plugin you provide looks perfect for my needs. Quite simply I just wanted it so that when someone registers on either the WP site or the forum site, the opposing site duplicates the user and login information too.

    To cut a long story short, I've tried to follow all the information on the plugin set up page, but although it seems that everything is in place, nothing has linked up (or at least that I can see). Is it possible that someone here may be able to have a quick look at my set up to see what's wrong please? Or give me some advice how to get things up and running?

    Many thanks,

    John Dunning

  • Full uninstallation procedure

    Hi,

    I've installed WP w3all and everything is working well.
    So I've documented what I did.

    But, I also want to document how to uninstall it now that I have everything in mind (just in case I need one day).
    However, the only documentation I found is this post...
    viewtopic.php?f=13&t=679

    But it's not listing everything.
    So here is my list...

    On WordPress side

    • Deactivate and then Delete the WP w3all plugin,
    • Trash the page used to display the forum,
    • Delete the page-forumPageName.php file in the WordPress /wp-content/themes/themeName/ folder,
    • Reset the admin password on WordPress.
      Explanations: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=679.

    On phpBB side

    Anything missing? Other data, code or file (css, js, php, etc.) to remove? :)

WordPress phpBB
mChat integration

This procedure assume you installed the wp_w3all WordPress phpBB integration plugin (in linked or not linked users mode) into WordPress, and phpBB mChat into your phpBB. At date of this post, the code as is can be applied by anyone, but this is a raw procedure may easy to be changed by advanced users. Work fine, but to optimize at best for your site, you may have to change something on the little javascript code you’ll add as explained on install steps. You can see the concept and code to apply available here:

WordPress phpBB mChat w3all procedure

See live raw working examples here:

WordPress phpBB mChat integration example

Just a good point to start from, that can be easily improved under any aspect and to fit any needs. Will be upgraded along the time.

phpBB WordPress template integration (iframe v3)

v3 version (for cool people) old v2 version is here

(READ ALL this page)

wp_w3all responsive iframe procedure

After you built/create the WP forum template page via option
WP_w3all phpBB embedded on WordPress Template
on WP_w3all admin config page, and the blank page on WordPress Admin -> Pages -> Add New, titled the same of created wp_w3all template page, so forum or board  etc (then you’ll have into your active WordPress template folder a file named page-forum.php or page-board.php etc), to complete the procedure and get the responsive iframe height for the embedded/iframed phpBB into WordPress template page you need:

Open with a text editor your phpBB template file overall_footer.html

and just before the closing </body> tag, add this code (do not select rows numbers on copied code):

after you pasted this code into phpBB overall_footer.html
edit following lines:

change axew3.com to fit your domain name (example axew3.com)
do NOT add http(s):// OR the point in front nor anything else, just add
yourdomain.com or set it as localhost if on localhost test. If phpBB is at subdomain.domain.com, add domain.com as value
(MANDATORY!) or resizer won’t work
now check the other line to change:

change value
https://www.axew3.com/w3/forum
on this line, to point to the URL of the WordPress created/named forum page (do not add final slash and change http or https as needed)
MANDATORY!

Finally, check this line

in the code you added (last line): this should correctly point to the iframeResizer.contentWindow.min.js file that you’ll go to add into phpBB root folder. You need to use the absolute URL (use http or https as needed, and adjust the url to fit your needs)
(MANDATORY!) or resizer won’t work

AFTER EDITED, save and load the modified overall_footer.html into your phpBB style folder, overwriting the default one, and so

load through ftp on the phpBB root folder (or copy/paste), the file
iframeResizer.contentWindow.min.js
that is contained inside folder
wp/wp-content/plugins/wp-w3all-phpbb-integration/addons/resizer

After this, phpBB require to recompile the template, or modifications to template files not affect (to overall_footer.html in this case). Open phpBB ACP, and so under:

Server Configuration -> Load settings -> Recompile stale style components set to YES and save. Load one time a phpBB full forum page. Leave as is at moment, especially if you follow adding also the code on overall_header.html (more below) to redirect any phpBB direct URL to the iframed WP page: then after tested that all work fine, may return to ACP, and reset to NO and save. This step is needed to load the template modifications on phpBB (and any time you edit a phpBB template file to for modifications take effect), but this option should be ever set to NO into an online/production site to save server resources. It is normally set to yes only for testing/devel purpose or to apply modifications on phpBB templates files.

Notification email links to point to iframe: follow read more below for the pure Javascript solution. Refer to v2 or v1 code for htaccess or js solution editing phpBB notifications files.

The new V3 w3all iframe code do not use anymore htaccess to force redirect as on V1 code, and substantially not rewrite URLs forcing redirect to iframe, but use pure Javascript (reload) code, that as you may imagine, lead to some different result: you’ll not have to edit phpBB notification links on phpBB notification files as on V1 or V2 code, to force users redirect to iframe when they click on notification email link. But in this case, any user except bots, will be redirected (as code is, but it can be easily changed to assume different behaviors, may excluding admins or moderators etc) to the WP iframed page, if the forum accessed via real phpBB url.

To apply same smooth scroll effect as it is on this online example, after finished with this procedure, follow with this steps:

Smooth scroll for phpBB WordPress template integration (iframe v3)



If you want phpBB email notification links or any phpBB direct url to be redirected to wp iframed forum page using pure javascript, follow this step:

Open with a text editor your phpBB template file overall_header.html

and just immediately after this code (or by the way, before the closing tag </head>)

add the following code:

On added code, change URL on the line where (line 3):

to fit/point to the WordPress iframed forum page: DO NOT ADD final slash and setup as http or https as needed.

NOTE: if you added the code above into phpBB overall_header.html then you’ll need to remove or comment out this part by the code you added into the overall_footer.html:

Recompile phpBB template and reset to no the option when changes applied

whenever you want: to get the iframe responsive for ACP phpBB admin panel, read this post. My (personal) suggestion is to stop here and try to use the integration leaving ACP out of iframe joke. If by the way you want to follow, before to apply then you’ll have to little change the above code for overall_footer.html and overall_header.html in this way:

on code for overall_footer.html remove this part:

on code for overall_header.html remove this part:

change into:

WordPress and Buddypress phpBB profile fields integration

NOTE x Buddypress profile fields integration: IT IS MANDATORY that the User Groups option on
WP admin -> Settings -> Buddypress
is active option!
NOTE x Buddypress: phpBB 3.2 or > required.

Note: Buddypress avatar integration option work in another way by others profile fields (more below explained) so is possible to activate the Buddypress avatar integration option without activating the Buddypress profile fields integration option.

How the WordPress + phpBB or WordPress + phpBB + Buddypress profile fields integration work:

On WordPress + Buddypress,  it’s required that default phpBB profile fields  exists as they are into a default phpBB install, while in the case of WordPress default without Buddypress it is not required: if phpBB profile fields mismatch from default, no update will be executed, EXCEPT for email and password fields (updated in any case). By the way, into a default WordPress there is only another field of interest on user’s profile, that’s site URL.

Remember that in the case phpBB profile fields aren’t the same like into a default phpBB install, no update will be done on phpBB profile fields (EXCEPT for email and password) when profile update will be executed in WordPress side.

The how to resolve and check about this, can be done reading this post:
WP_w3all phpBB integration and phpBB PROFILE FIELDS

The following is ONLY if Buddypress installed in WordPress and Buddypress integration option activated:

If on Buddypress, the WP_w3all feature about integration of Profile Fields can be activated on WP_w3all config.
If you choose to activate this option, check that phpBB profiles fields matches a phpBB default install configuration ( WP_w3all phpBB integration and phpBB PROFILE FIELDS  ), so will be also necessary to name these fields in Buddypress as explained in this procedure:

any custom field can be added into Buddypress, but only default phpBB default profile fields are synchronized and updated between phpBB and  WP Buddypress, and only if these Profile Fields in Buddypress are named as explained here below. You can add any profile field in Buddypress. But only these that match phpBB as explained below are synchronized/updated.
To have Buddypress integrated  about profile fields and synchronized with phpBB profile fields, phpBB profile fields need to be AS are ON A DEFAULT phpBB installation (as the code is), plus it is required to name these Profile Fields Names in Buddypress in this way:

Buddypress and phpBB default fields integration how to

In Buddypress, is possible to name any field as more like, but if it need to be updated also in phpBB and vice versa, the field name shown to the user, need to contain:

for youtube, the word youtube (lower or capital or both mixed letters, also into a phrase)
for facebook, the word facebook (lower or capital or both mixed letters, also into a phrase)
for icq, the word icq (lower or capital or both mixed letters, also into a phrase)
for skype, the word skype (lower or capital or both mixed letters, also into a phrase)
for twitter, the word twitter (lower or capital or both mixed letters, also into a phrase)
for googleplus, the word google (lower or capital or both mixed letters, into a phrase also (just google, so it can be used for any google service, and not just googleplus: so for gmail may could be used Google gmail))
for yahoo, the word yahoo (lower or capital or both mixed letters, also into a phrase)
for aol, the word aol (lower or capital or both mixed letters, also into a phrase)

So it is important to not repeat these words using as Profile Fields Names on Buddypress some word that is already used to detect another field name (or one of the others 4 fields below).

This can work very fine until the name of the field is about services, because normally these are named in any language the same, while remaining 4 (four) default phpBB profile fields, which are: occupation, interests, location, website can be differently named: in Italian the Eng word occupation is written occupazione, in Dutch it is bezetting etc etc.

For those 4 fields, IT IS REQUIRED that these Profile Fields Names named in Buddypress as single word, or changed to fit your language or different language or phrase or word, as explained more below.

For occupation, the word occupation, lower or capital or both mixed letters, or anyone of the words in the following array:

for interests, the word interests, lower or capital or both mixed letters, or anyone of the words in the following array:

for location, the word location, lower or capital or both mixed letters, or any of the words in the following array:

for website, the word website, lower or capital or both mixed letters, or any of the words in the following array:

as is easy to understand, these arrays for these four BP profile fields names, contains pairs of values:
“language” => “translated word/or phrase”

in these arrays,  is possible to add any other language, OR, you can also choose to modify the translation of some of the Profile Field Names into something different, like for example:
“en” => “website”
could be changed into (use EVER lower case letters here!):
“en” => “your web space”
so as Profile Field name in Buddypress, we’ll set for the website field name:
Your Web Space OR Your web space, or any other mixed lower/capital letters, but the phrase NEED TO BE THE SAME as it is set on the related array.

These arrays can be added into the custom WP_w3all phpBB config.php file, or root phpBB config.php if you use it, so on plugin update nothing will be lost in case of custom additions or modifications, maybe due to addition of your language, or translated phrase/word change.
To do this, open your wp_w3all custom phpBB config.php file (or phpBB root config.php file if you use it) and add the follow (or what for you needed) just below all others existent code lines:

Edit any of those adding custom language for Buddypress profile fields names, that you’ll use to name the related Buddypress profile field. Memo that all added values in these arrays need to be LOWER CASE.

As example, assume we need to add for the occupation field a language like Icelandic, that translate the word occupation in starf: then we’ll go to modify the array $w3_bpl_profile_occupation adding what needed just in this way:

As you can see, it has been added to the array $w3_bpl_profile_occupation the value
“icelandic” => “starf”,

NOTE how it is not important the first value “icelandic” that could be also setup with any other word (if isn’t already used as key for another value in the same array):  the important is the word starf
added as LOWER CASE, that you’ll use as Buddypress Profile Field  Name you’ll dedicate to the occupation field (and that will be recognized and synchronized also in phpBB). So you can use as field name in Buddypress Starf, or StarF, or any mixed lower/capital letters. Remember for these four fields that you can name these Fields Names in Buddypress as lower or capital or both mixed letters, but exactly like the phrase or word as is the value in one of these arrays.

WP_w3all for WordPress MS MU (Multisite, Multiuser network installations)

To configure WP_w3all on WordPress MS MU please read all the follow:

WP_w3ll plugin from 1.7.0 – WordPress MU MS  . The plugin can be also network activated, but the linked phpBB on each subsite, need to be the same (same path and same url setting value). If plugin is network activated, it is mandatory that the sub admin or super admin, setup/configure  into (each) subsite the same config of the main site for the integration plugin, because if not, when an user login into a subsite where the plugin is not configured, the phpBB cookie will not be released, and when same logged user visit the main site or another subsite where the plugin run instead configured, the user will be logged out. Registered phpBB users are added as users only into the FIRST WP site (or subsite) where users will login or that they will visits while coming already logged in into phpBB. *But you could use a plugin to add coming phpBB logged users, into each or just few WordPress site/subsites they visits, see more below.

NOTE: from 1.9.0 patched at date of this post ( or from 1.9.0 > ) it is NOT more necessary to execute this step editing the wp-config.php file
but check an hint and a warning more for WP mums installations more below on this same post.

OPEN wp-config.php file:

search for line (value wp_ can be maybe different):

immediately after ADD:

 

BEWARE that if a different phpBB is linked on subsites, the integration in this state lead to unpredictable results! … in true it is very predictable what can happen, but really long to explain and too hard for my Eng! In short, it is NOT possible to link a different phpBB into WP network subsites with actual code.
Setup into sub-sites, if the plugin is network activated, same path and url in WP_w3all config, with same values of main site.

*Hint: you could use a plugin to add coming phpBB logged users, into each WordPress they visits, or just to few, and with several different features:  search for Join My Multisite plugin at WordPress plugins directory.

NOTE: WP_w3all phpBB integration plugin when an user is deleted in WordPress (so it become deactivated in phpBB, and then you may go to delete this user in phpBB) also clean up from signup table in WordPress this user. This is necessary for compatibility (as the code is) with phpBB integration to avoid that another user register with same email into phpBB (if you allow users to register also on phpBB side, and you have also deleted this user also in phpBB) while the user has been deleted in WP, but his email/username remain stored into WP database signups table for some more time.

How are users identified when you add/transfer existent user
integration of same username/email users

Problem: i have WordPress users and I have phpbb users, they have different usernames but the same email addresses.

Solutions:

user A into phpBB with email C
user B into WP with email C

user A into phpBB come to try to login WP: NOT added can’t login WP side.

If you use the transfer process of WP users into phpBB:

user A Same above.
user B transferred into phpBB, B now can login into both phpBB and WP.
You’ll have two users into phpBB with same email, which is possible as option into phpBB.

You can also merge posts/users into one user in this way:

Change email to the user B in WP.
Login with the phpBB user A into WP, that will be added, as no same email found.
Now delete user B in WP, and retain posts assigning to A.

Result: an unique user, with all his posts on both phpBB and WP.

NOTE: This is just to give an idea on how to resolve common problems about an integration with pre existent users in phpBB that may have same email. But there are several more possibilities: in phpBB ACP there are many options to manage users and posts, and combining these and from the above, you should get the way to resolve any possible scenario.

Based on this topic: How are users identified? (when adding/transfer existent users)

Install phpBB WordPress domain/subdomain integration: how to hints

phpBB installed at plugins.w3tasks.com
WP installed at w3tasks.com

To install wp_w3all on a subdomain/domain i have use the custom config.php option, as we are here in subdomain installation. I’ve see it was not working about connession. It was failing because, the custom wp_w3all phpBB config.php file, was lacking the follow setting, which was REQUIRED to connect on my/this server correctly (as on plesk config setting i had set allow only from localhost connections), so:

(this my setting, check your host/port)

So, on phpBB ACP cookie setting:
i had as default phpBB cookie value:
plugins.w3tasks.com
i’ve modify it to:
.w3tasks.com
I have also set admin of phpBB with same email of WP.
NOW I’VE LOGOUT from phpBB.
SO I HAVE CLEAN COOKIES on browser, and login successfully.
All working nice.

(For security reasons by the way, should be not good practice to have an administrator named admin: commonly it should be removed and replaced by someone not so clear as one named admin, if no other security measures applied on wp).

The above suppose you have follow also steps about phpBB WordPress integration here:
