The application supports posts on phpBB

Post by newyork01 » Thu Mar 21, 2019 8:11 am

Hello friends.
I have a question that needs your help.
I am not searching for a bridging plugin. I have looked at those and I do not need that type of functionality.

Specifically, I need to be able to create a thread within an action hook in WordPress. I have WordPress and phpBB installed on the same server, in different databases. I have had no luck finding any code to include for authenticating / connecting to the phpBB database from outside of phpBB. Does anyone have experience with using phpBB's database outside of phpBB?

Also, do you know if it's possible to use functions from phpBB's API outside of phpBB? The submit_post function seems like it would work, I just need a way to get that to run within WordPress.

Thank's a lot!
