Please elaborate on what you mean by "social network software". I automatically think of IM software, but I'm sure that's not what you mean.

phpBB is designed as stand alone forum software. It doesnt need to be integrated into anything.

If you want it integrated into anything, then you are more than welcome to do that yourself.

As DoD has said, phpBB is solely designed for stand-alone forum software. Now, PHP-Nuke took phpBB and integrated it with it's CMS portal which, we can't support. But, anyone is more than welcome to integrate it with their own software or whatever, it's up to them. I would recommend using the 2.0.XX series as code changes can still happen in the current CVS's of Olympus releases.
Someplace where it's dark, someplace where it's quiet, I feel at home... I have nowhere to go any longer, as that's what I desire.

ScionCrow: I guess you did not read the announcement on phpBB.com stating that a community project should be started to enable other types of auth schemes, like a CMS. That would be a level of integration.... Speaking of the community projects, whats the status on them? Has anybody been picked? When will an announcement be made?

It is not my intention to start any flamewars, and indeed I have attempted to douse them in the past. In order to avoid rising expectations, I will point out that the last time that something was supposed to happen in a "few days," it took a month before we knew what it was.

If something does come in soon, then I will be pleased. However, one should not get one's hopes up.
You can never go home again... but I guess you can shop there.

...
"a few" as in "quite a few".
