I have installed phpBB3 too as forum and when I go to Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! it shows up but when I click "Forum" in the navigation bar on my site it says "Sorry, that module file was not found". (Cause I have deleted the 3 folders)
Is there a way that I can link this? I want to click "Forum" and it should lead me to it.
Regarding the "Bridge". Does this allows me to have the users from my site in my forum or is this bridge just to transfer the users from the phpBB2 board to the phpBB3 board?

I'm afraid that many of the moderators and admins on this site are focused on getting RN 2.3 out. That includes PHPBB2. Everyone recognizes the desirability of getting to PHPBB3 eventually but you are going to have to "roll your own" for now if you go to that. Perhaps another user can assist you. If you want support aside from that you are going to need to stick to supported distributions, I'm afraid.

If someone knows for sure what the bridge does and is willing to post it that would be most welcome I am sure. Just be aware that we are going to be making major enhancements to YA in 2.3 which include some changes to the users table, so there could be glitches in any bridge that depends on the old structure of the *nuke users table. It won't take a rocket scientist to fix these but if expect to be able to just load the old code and go that won't work either.

One thing I have noticed is that the phpBB2 forum which is included in RavenNuke is shown up with the blocks on the side. If you install phpBB3 you have a seperate site for the forum. bprsk8r4272 has it like I want it. When you click forums on the top of his site it leads you to his phpBB3 forum. Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

I just need to know 2 things. How did he link his phpBB3 forum with the "Forum" button in his navigation bar of his normal site. Regarding the "Bridge" I'll ask Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! . If I have more information I'll post again here.

Thanks. If you look at the address when you hover over Forums in either the menu bar at the top of the theme or in the modules block you will see that it is the standard link to modules.php. Modules.php processes all such links and then directs them to the appropriate module. So, unless they have hacked modules.php, the PHPBB3 forum module must be installed in the /modules directory of RN. Beyond that you will have to find out from them how they did it and please post any results here.

Thanks agaub,

The answer is in the 6th post in this thread;
inside modules/Forums create a index.php file and put this in it
Code:


<?php
if (!defined('MODULE_FILE'))
{
   die('You can\'t access this file directly...');
}
header('Location: forums/');
die();
?>

This causes the normal nuke link to be redirected to the stand alone phpBB3 forum.

Thanks. I have no linked PM's, Forum and Member List to my phpBB3 forum. I will now test if users who created an account on my normal site are able to use this account on the forum too and the other way around. I doubt it will work. I think that's what the "Bridge" is there for but let's see. I will edit this post with my test results in not later than 30minutes.

EDIT: It's 2 different things. You can't use your site account for the forum nor does it work the other way around. I guess that's what the "Bridge" is there for. I'll try to install the "Bridge" later.

Yes that is correct. The 'bridge' is to link the two separate accounts.

Just came accross; Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

thought it looked pretty nice, although it doesn't use php-nuke at all by the looks of it Smile

Has anyone of you installed the bridge? I don't get it to work.

EDIT: I got it to work. Problem was that after installing the "Bridge" the forum module was deactivated for some reason. I activated it and everything worked fine. When I log in on my site I'm automatically logged in on the forum and the forum button still leads me to my phpBB3 forum. Great Stuff. If anyone needs installation help, I'm your man.

Basically these are the steps.

1. Install your phpNuke or RavenNuke
2. Install the phpBB3 forum (use 3.0.1 because then the "Bridge" installation is much easier)
3.Install the "Bridge" by just adding the content of your "Bridge" "html" folder (blocks & forums) to your root where you have RavenNuke
4. Activate the Forum module in your administration panel in on your site (not on the forum)

Note: As you installed the phpBB3 forum you already created a folder "forums" in your root. NO WORRY the "forums" folder of your bridge will just patch the current folder so you can put the 2 folders "blocks" and "forums" in your root without being scared.

I hope this helps. For more information or help post here or contact me on msn.

EDIT: The only negative is that every way of logging in on your forum leads you to your site's log in menu. Even the quick log in feature on your forum.

Pic: Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

(If you fill in your account information and press login it will lead you to the site's login which mean you got to enter your information again which is a bit annoying)

I'll notify the "Bridge" creator about this. Let's hope there is a solution.

EDIT: I had to delete the content of this post since I realized it was wrong information by me.

Again, if you have installed a phpBB 3.0.1 forum and used the "Bridge" to link it with your Nuke site and decide to update the board to phpBB 3.0.2 the YOU ALSO HAVE TO UPDATE THE BRIDGE! Which means just do the manual installation which you can find in your downloaded "Bridge" folder.

I have followed the steps in the manual installation guide which is included in your "Bridge" download. I copied the content of the html folder in my RavenNuke root folder (the place where it's installed). I overwrote the files when it gave me this option. Then I edited all the files/codes like described and it does work now.

If anyone has problems with the "Bridge" let me know please. I'll try to help you out.

Just a side note, you can delete your own posts as long as there is not a newer post made after it.

Does someone know if someone else working on a better bridge? or even ported version of phpbb3 for nuke?

the bridge is fine but still there are many problems with users, the fact that you have two different tables for users (one in nuke the other in phpbb3) is horrrible, you can't change your password/signature/anything else in phpbb3... you have to do it in nuke.

Regarding a new "Bridge" you should ask this on the official site. Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

And yea, I understand what you mean. It would be cool if you could change the password on your phpBB too. Everything is handled over the Nuke site, that's what the bridge is there for. I will post a suggestion on the official site unless you do it first.

I just wanted to add a little thing. For some people it might have been obvious for others like me not.

If you want to ban a user then you can't do this over your ACP on your phpBB forum. You will have to do this on your Nuke site. If you ban him on your forum he can still access your Nuke site and if he clicks "Forums" then he's back logged in in your forum.

I was testing phpbb3 the other day and I didn't see where it offered much of an advantage over the current ported version on phpbb2 to a nuke user. Maybe someone could share why they think it would be a better BB system for nuke. I'm not knocking the incredible work that the PHPBB team has done. It is a very nice forum system. I am speaking solely as a Raven Nuke user with only simple BB needs..

Because phpBB2 is no longer supported? Smile

Lots of features like hierarchical categories, friend/foe, etc are built in. The caching system makes it super fast.

But for now, if you want to stick with phpBB2, I don't see why not. Though as time goes on, phpBB2 may be an easier target for hackers.
