The (awesome) iframe template integration using shortcode

WordPress phpBB template integration

check all others shortcodes listed under the “common how to” section

NOTE that required settings of this shortcode resides under the WP_w3all Preferences menu

To use the w3allphpbbiframe shortcode it is required to apply into the phpBB template files overall_header.html and overall_footer.html the same javascript code and procedure as it is for the page-forum:

phpBB WordPress template integration iframe

then use like this:

wp_page_name param refer to the page/post name/slug where the shortcode will be added (see hint below about this param if omitted*)

wp_page_iframe_top_gap param refer to (in pixel) the position where the WP parent page will scroll to by default. If omitted value will be 0

url_push (since 2.5.9>) param if omitted is set to YES, that mean when links are clicked into the phpBB iframed, the URL will be pushed into the browser’s address bar. If you want to avoid this behavior, use/add this param like this into the shortcode: url_push="no"

note that the URL push is ever avoided when the shortcode used into homepage and should in several more conditions. In short words, in all these situations where, when if the URL is pushed into parent address bar, it cause/lead to a WordPress page NOT found, in the case there is an intentionally browser’s page reload (because the pushed URL is an URL that WP will not found)

phpbb_default_url (since 2.5.7>) param (that can be omitted) refer to any phpBB URL where the iframe will be opened by default, so the above become something like this, if for example we want to display into a WP post the phpBB, that should open by default into a precise forum topic/post/page:

but it can be any other phpBB link like the ucp page used into another etc

you can imagine what you could do may using multiple shortcode(s) into different contests/pages/posts

It is mandatory to set WP page-names where the shortcode will be added, into related shortcode option field on plugin admin page, or the shortcode will not fire

security_token (since 2.5.9>) param (that can be omitted) refer to a secret token that can be used to restrict the use of the iframe shortcode only to certain users, when there are more roles allowed to create posts or pages. If this option is set (not empty) the shortcode will be parsed only when the token exist and will match. To add the security secret token into the iframe shortcodes, add it like this:

security_token="MySecretToken"

assuming that into related option field on plugin admin, MySecretToken is the token that had set

scroll_default (since 2.6.0>) param if omitted is set to YES by default. To avoid the page scroll behavior set it to no:

scroll_default="no"

To edit some css/html output or something else if required, relevant files to look into are:

/wp-content/plugins/wp-w3all-phpbb-integration/common/wp_phpbb_iframe_shortcode.php

/wp-content/plugins/wp-w3all-phpbb-integration/views/wp_w3all_phpbb_iframe_short.php

*Note wp_page_name: if using Plain permalinks, for example the page name for a post would be p=45 or if it is a page page_id=12

*Note also that the shortcode param wp_page_namecan be omitted if you created page-forum using the (other way) page-forum available iframe template integration: so that the loaded URL into the browser’s address bar when links clicked into iframe, will be the one set into the overall_header.html and overall_footer.html js added code (that so may point to another post or page where another shortcode has been added, or to the default page-forum if created using related option on plugin admin)

Note important: if the iframe do not display and you get mixed insecure content on console, you have to fix it doing this:

open your WP header.php template file, and may just after others header meta tags add the follow:

That’s all here, follow instructions into the plugin admin page where there is iframe template integration using shortcode related option. Enjoy!

One applied right here on the post (below), but also see another simple example here: https://www.axew3.com/w3/board/

Advanced hint: this shortcode with little modifications could be easily used to display any iframed page, also cross domain.

Here it has been added the iframe using the shortcode with param phpbb_default_url set to open a specified phpBB post and with scroll_default set to no (since 2.6.0>)

wp_w3all responsive iframe procedure

WordPress phpBB iframe template integration

MEMO: to update to latest v4 code, you’ll need to rebuild page-forum.php (or whatever you named it) via plugin admin, OR manually substitute it into your active WP template folder, with the new one that you find/copy into /wp-content/plugins/wp-w3all-phpbb-integration/addons. You’ll need to update also the iframeResizer.contentWindow.min.js file you added into phpBB root, with the new one you find into /wp-content/plugins/wp-w3all-phpbb-integration/addons/resizer folder. Done this, substitute the phpBB overall_header.html and overall_footer.html code (re-adding needed values) with the new v4 code here below. Do not forget to rebuild phpBB template to make phpBB template modifications take effect.

 Domain/subdomains installations it’s REQUIRED to read this: How to Domain/subdomain iframe template integration

WP_w3all template integration steps

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:

overall_footer.html code

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 localhost 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://localhost/wp53/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, 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.

overall_header.html code

The new V4 w3all iframe code do not use anymore htaccess to force redirects, 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 (for example) on notification email link or some other forum’s 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.

If you want phpBB email notification links or any phpBB direct url to be redirected to the wp iframed forum page 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, just 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.

All working!?

Reset to No the Recompile phpBB template option, here we go!

NOTE: if you added the code above into phpBB overall_header.html then you’ll never activate (it is not active by default) this part of the code you added into the overall_footer.html:

P.s – 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:

  • Recaptcha stopped working

    I installed the Advanced Google Recaptcha plugin from WPConcern before installing the WordPress w3all phpBB Integration plugin. I set the recaptcha to appear on the registration and lost password forms. It was working perfectly before I installed the w3all plugin. When I had problems getting the w3all plugin to work, as explained in my previous post, I deactivated the recaptcha plugin. After I got the settings right for the w3all plugin, I reactivated the recaptcha plugin. The recaptcha did not appear on the registration form, but registrations were rejected with an error message that the Google recaptcha had failed. I deactivated the w3all plugin: no change. I deleted the w3all plugin: no change. The deletion process may not have run all the way through; it displayed the "Deleting" message for a long time until I refreshed the page.

    Looks like the two plugins are not compatible. How do I revert back to the way things were before installing the w3all plugin?

    Thanks,
    John

  • Login problems

    I have installed the WordPress w3all phpBB integration plugin in WP but not the phpBB extension in phpBB.

    My administrator login works on both WP and phpBB, but logging into one does not log me into the other.

    When I register a new user in WP, the user is correctly added to phpBB. However, the new user login will not work for WP, but I can use it to log directly into phpBB. Resetting the password while the WP w3all phpBB integration plugin is activated does not fix the problem. If I deactivate the plugin, some of the WP passwords will work without resetting and the others will work if I reset them. If I reactivate the plugin, all WP logins except for the administrator stop working, but the same passwords work for direct login to phpBB.

    WP: 6.1.1
    phpBB: 3.3.8
    PHP: 7.4.33

    Suggestions to fix this?

  • Wordpress Role -> phpBB Group

    Hello,

    I searched the forums but didn't find the answer. I'm sorry if I missed it and am asking something already answered.

    Does this plugin have the ability to sync a users Wordpress Role to phpBB?

    What I am hoping for:
    1. Customer purchases membership to my site via Wordpress (Woocommerce).
    2. Their role in Wordpress changes to "Paid Subscriber"
    3. Because their role changed, this plugin would update phpBB to put them in the "Paid subscribers" group so they get elevated access in the forum

    Then...
    4. When their subscription expires, their role in Wordpress is downgraded to "Expired Subscriber"
    5. This plugin updates their role in phpBB to a "Free user" group so their elevated access is removed.

    Thanks in advance!

News from engadget.com

Latest 5 news from – engadget.com/rss.xml – target _blank – inline styled, used like this:

  • Meta faces lawsuit for harvesting financial data from tax prep websites

    A group of anonymous plaintiffs who filed their taxes online in 2020 using H&R Block has sued Meta, accusing the company of violating users' trust and privacy. If you'll recall, a recent Markup investigation revealed that H&R Block, along with other popular tax-filing websites like TaxAct and TaxSlayer, have been sending users' sensitive financial information to Meta through its Pixel tracking tool. 

    Pixel is a piece of code companies can embed on their websites so they can track visitors' activities and identify Facebook and Instagram users to target with ads. Apparently, the aforementioned tax prep websites had been transmitting personal information, such as income data, filing statuses, refund amounts and dependents' tuition grants, to Meta through that code. The tax-filing services had already changed their Pixel settings to stop sending information or had been reevaluating how they used Pixel by the time Markup's report came out. 

    In a statement sent to Engadget when the news first came out, Meta said that advertisers are prohibited from sharing personal information and that it uses an automated system that can filter out sensitive content sent through Pixel. The plaintiffs acknowledged in their complaint (PDF, courtesy of The Markup) that Meta does require businesses that use Pixel to "have lawful rights to collect, use and share" user data before providing the company with any information. However, the plaintiffs argue that Meta makes no effort to enforce that rule and instead relies on a "broken honor-system" that has resulted in "repeated, documented violations."

    According to The Markup, the lawsuit is seeking class action status for people who used the tax prep services mentioned in the publication's report. The services themselves, however, were not named as defendants in the case. 

  • Security flaw in Florida tax website exposed filers' sensitive data

    Some Florida residents may be keeping a close eye on their finances after a security incident. Researcher Kamran Mohsin tellsTechCrunch that Florida's Department of Revenue website had a flaw that exposed hundreds of filers' bank account and Social Security numbers. Anyone who logged in to the state business tax registration site could see, modify and even delete personal data just by modifying the web address pointing to a taxpayer's application number — you just needed to change the digits in the link.

    There were over 713,000 applications in the Department's pipeline at the time of the discovery, Mohsin said. Mohsin warned the Department about the flaw on October 27th.

    Department representative Bethany Wester said in a statement that the government fixed the flaw within four days of the report, and that two unnamed firms have deemed the site secure. She added there was "no sign" attackers abused the flaw, but didn't say how officials might have spotted any misuse. The agency contacted every affected taxpayers by phone or writing within four days of learning about the issue, and has offered a year of free credit monitoring.

    Bugs like these, known as insecure direct object references, are relatively easy to fix. The damage might also be limited compared to other tax-related breaches, such as a Healthcare.gov intrusion that compromised about 75,000 people in 2018. However, the incident underscores the potential harm from weak security — even a small-scale exposure like this could be used to commit tax fraud and steal refunds.

  • John Wick's creator is writing a movie based on 'Sifu'

    John Wick creator Derek Kolstad is working on yet another videogame adaptation. Fresh off the news that he's writing and producing a Streets of Rage film, it emerged that Kolstad is taking on the same duties for a live-action movie based on Sifu.

    Kolstad and his partners at media company Story Kitchen have teamed up with Sifu developer and publisher Sloclap, as Deadline reports. The beat-'em-up proved a hit when it was released in February, as it sold a million copies in three weeks — despite Elden Ring and Horizon Forbidden West arriving at around the same time. What makes Sifu stand out from the pact is that every time the protagonist dies in their quest for vengeance, they get older but their enemies stay the same age.

    That hook alone gives a screenwriter a lot of intriguing possibilities. The one vs. many aspect of Sifu seems right up Kolstad's alley as well, given his experience with the John Wick franchise and Nobody. As if all that wasn't enough, Kolstad is also behind Netflix's Splinter Cell, an upcoming animated series based on Ubisoft's games.

  • Second group of Activision Blizzard testers wins union vote

    More Activision Blizzard workers have voted to unionize. Quality assurance testers at Blizzard Albany have voted 14-0 in favor of unionization. The team at the Diablo-focused office will join the Communication Workers of America (CWA), the representative of the existing Raven Software union.

    The game publisher tried to prevent the vote in October, arguing that 88 developers should be included to prevent a "fractured" office. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) denied that bid in late November, noting that the game testers shared a "community of interest" for their cause. Expansions like this are sometimes used in union-busting efforts to reduce the chances of a successful vote. The company also tried to impound three votes that arrived late due to mail delays, although those wouldn't have affected the outcome.

    Activision Blizzard told Engadget in a statement that it was "considering all options." It maintained that all Albany workers should have voted in the name of "fundamental fairness and rights" for the entire branch, not just the QA unit.

    The CWA said in its own statement that this was a vote against "burn out culture," while Blizzard Albany associate test analyst Amanda Deep said the group was "advocating for ourselves" out of care for the work and the games. Workers at Raven and Blizzard Albany have complained about long hours, pay rates and other labor issues. Unionization theoretically gives staff more clout in demanding better conditions.

    It may not be so simple, however. While Activision Blizzard responded to initial unionization efforts by converting 1,100 testers to full-time jobs and raising their base pay, the NLRB also found that it unfairly withheld raises from Raven QA workers who had voted to join a union. Activision Blizzard claimed that it had pass on those pay raises due to "legal obligations" around a pending election, but the NLRB attributed this to the unionization. Improved conditions might come, but they aren't guaranteed to come quickly.

  • Pong's influence on video games endures 50 years later

    A game that is easy to learn, but difficult to master. This was the concept Atari founder Nolan Bushnell instilled into Allan Alcorn, a then-24-year-old engineer, prior to the development of one of the most recognizable games of all time, Pong, just over 50 years ago.

    Pong, a video game in which a square is bounced between two rectangles controlled by players, was released on November 29th of 1972 by Atari, only a few days more than 50 years ago. Atari sold more than 8,000 Pong arcade cabinets, and a few years later, the home version would become an instant success, selling about 150,000 units of a console that played nothing but Pong. However, despite how much time has passed, and the massive changes the gaming industry has endured, Pong's — and Atari's — influence on the world of video games remains prevalent today. Watch the video below for the full story.

Shorcode: RSS feeds into WordPress

WP_w3all phpBB WordPress 1.9.7 >

WP_w3all feed version 1.0

check all others shortcodes listed under the “common how” to section

Note that substantially this shortcode can substitute with easy all others old phpBB last topics shortcodes. It can retrieve any kind of posts/topics list and display as more like using style/classes or inline style. Follow read more below …

Note: this shortcode work ok also if a valid path to a phpBB config.php file has not been setup and the plugin result as not activated (RED text) on plugin admin page

Note also that this shortcode as it is coded, like the related WP hook, caches results for 12 hours by default

Look two raw examples

As basic default the shortcode feeds, that can point to a phpBB generated feed OR to any other valid feed resource, need to be used like this:

The example of feed to retrieve is here for phpBB, but it’s possible to use any valid feed URL to display feeds from any resource. Check some feed example to grab here http://simplepie.org/demo/ or any other you want and use into the shortcode like this:

here as example the w3feed_items_num attribute limit to 10 items to retrieve and display from the RSS source:

To display phpBB posts feeds styled, there are some more attribute that is possible to use except the default 2 above explained:

using all together, look this example, that not contain the w3feed_text_words attribute, in which, one possible value to use, is may reserved (may not) to phpBB news/last post RSS, and explained separately more below:

the attribute w3feed_ul_class=”myexampleClassXUL” will assign class name myexampleClassXUL to the wrapper element ul. w3feed_li_class do the same for nested li assigning myexampleClassXLI to all li elements of this feed.

adding w3feed_href_blank=”1″ will cause that links elements <a> that point to topics or links to authors will include/output with the html attribute target=”_blank”

w3feed_inline_style attribute can be used to inject inline style into each li element. Note that by the way it has been tested without using special chars on it, so that special characters may need to be properly escaped to be used in this case.

It’s possible to assign different classes and display each shortcode feeds output, ul and li elements, styled as it need to be or/and as more like.

Here you can see examples for phpBB to retrieve feeds: forums news, all forums, single forum, single topic and more, plus advanced features:

https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3.1/kb/article/faq-phpbb-atom-feeds/

The w3feed_text_words=”numOfWords” attribute is may reserved to be used only for phpBB posts feeds, while the 0 (zero) and content values are ok to be used on any other feed, not only phpBB:

0 | num of words | content

if omitted w3feed_text_words=”content” is the default behavior/result, that will return all the content of the post or feed item, changing nothing on output.

while adding an integer value, as example 30, so, w3feed_text_words=”30″ will cause that firsts 30 post’s words will display, and the default Statistics: phpBB text on output removed, while will be maintained all the rest, and the result will be something like:

Post Title
Post Content
Posted by axew3 — Sat Mar 09, 2019 12:04 am

w3feed_text_words=”numOfWords” int value can may also be used for any feed and not only for phpBB posts, but check before that the result is what you expect to be.

Using 0 (zero), so w3feed_text_words=”0″ , will cause that only topic’s titles links will display.

Except the mandatory w3feed_url attribute, any of the attributes can be mixed, applied or not applied, on each shortcode feed.

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:

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:

PAGE HELP and JS code – UPDATED on 21 Dec 2018
(related views/page-forum.phpupdated on 26 Sep 2018)

you need to use this version of page-forum.php for this javascript code:
/tags/1.9.3/addons/page-forum.php

wp_w3all responsive iframe procedure

After you’ve built/created the WP forum template page via
WP_w3all phpBB embedded on WordPress Template
option 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 lines numbers column 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 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. So return to ACP and reset to NO, save. This step is needed one time 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.

How to update to latest iframe js code and page-forum.php?

Update the plugin (or download plugin and copy files by /resizer folder)
so files inside folder
/wp-content/plugins/wp-w3all-phpbb-integration/addons/resizer
results updated (or do it manually substituting these files with latest released https://github.com/davidjbradshaw/iframe-resizer)
so substitute/replace the file you added into phpBB root folder with latest iframeResizer.contentWindow.min.js
copy it from
/wp-content/plugins/wp-w3all-phpbb-integration/addons/resizer
folder and replace in phpBB root folder.

Replace the old code added into phpBB overall_footer.html file with the new one above into this page, take care to setup on it needed values as now  required.

Remember to rebuild phpBB template after these steps to let changes take effect.

Now rebuild the page forum in WP w3all admin page, or manually copy the new page-forum.php version contained on folder
/wp-content/plugins/wp-w3all-phpbb-integration/addons
and paste it into your WordPress template folder, renaming it as needed, so for example page-board.php if you setted up board for the forum page name on wp_w3all admin page.

Done.

Note: if you want a custom page-forum, just open the page-forum.php (or whatever you named it) and read inline hints inside. It is so easy to create a custom page forum (for example with two columns etc). If any help more. just post on help forums here at axew3.com or at wordpress.org.



If you want phpBB email notification links to point to iframe, follow this step about htaccess:
