I first want to say what a awesome plugin!! It works perfectly! It took me a bit to get it working properly. A few errors and reinstalls. But it works good now.
I have WordPressMU and Coppermine both working with Punbb. Now thanks to this plugin users only have to register once. That saves alot of time and aggrevation.
To get it to work this is how i did it.
1. I edited the Jl-punbb file. There are some things in here you want to pay close attention to. I didnt the first few times and thats why it wouldnt work for me.
These two lines have to be edited right:
define('PUNPATH', '/home/mydomainname/public_html/forum'); // path to punbb folder
When it asks for the path it doesnt want the http reference it wants that folder layout from the server to your forum path. So you need to figure out your path. You can usually see this in your control panel. Where it tells you what version of php and such your running then it shows the path to the php. It also shows the public_html path there as well. ( usually, not always )
So i put the direct path in mine to get it working. You can do .../forum that would work to. You put as many dots ( . ) as needed to get to that folder. Like with mine i would go through three folders to get to the forum folder.
Now you need to see what this says here because when you install your punbb, or if you have already installed it, then you need to know this. Because it will look for this prefix to your punbb tables. If you named your punbb table prefix something else then you would need to edit this line here. I didnt. I named mine on a fresh install exactly as its wrote here. You can look in your sql tables with your phpmyadmin to see the prefix if your not sure.
define('PUNPREFIX', 'pun_'); // punBB table prefix
2. Then I uploaded the Jl-punbb plugin to WordPress plugin directory. I didnt activate it yet cause as soon as you do it starts working.
3. I edited the profile and the register file. I didnt edit the login file at first cause it kept redirecting me back to wordpress and that annoyed me cause i was getting errors with it so after the third time of trying i just didnt edit the login file to save me some trouble till i got it working.
4. Then i activated it. As soon as you activate it , try registering a user in your WordPress and then go to your forum to see if the new name appeared. Hopefully you wont get any errors if everything works now.
It is working for me now. I register in my WordPress and it carries over to my Punbb and my Coppermine. I love it!
Now i do have some questions about this plugin tho. Is there a way to make the password's the same or are they the same with this plugin? Because i know when you first register on punbb that it randomly generates a password for you. So i was just wondering if it uses the same password from the WordPress or if it registers you in Punbb with a random one?? Anyone know?
