thanks again for the helful advice Acyd Burn. Found the following modx generator:
http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 75&start=0

Then I am looking at the following automated installer (I assume that there is no other way to auto install MODX at this stage)
http://www.pentagate.com/indexframes.html

We reached 10.000 downloads of the JFusion Beta today after only 4 weeks and most of these downloads will be for phpBB3 integrations. Since we got a very large tester base, I will get the JFusion users to thoroughly test my mods first. That way i can submit the MODX to the bug tracker with the data with the information that x number of users found no problems with it. I'll create a seperate modx for each issue:

1. SEF URL's
2. Use of server paths for form actions
3. $mode variables do not seem to get passed onto the module for the quickmod tools

That way I stop stealing your precious time and allow you to focus on developing the next phpBB3 version and only bother you with a fully tested mod. :)

I'll post here once I make these mods available for testing to JFusion users. Thanks, Marius

AutoMOD is the tool to automatically process MODX files. See http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1368025

For the post within the bug tracker you can simply attach the generated diff file. But for consideration it must be posted to the bug tracker. ;) Releases as a Mod for your users to install is a different matter and is out of the scope of us integrating the changes. ;)

So, for us to consider your append_sid() changes (and actually discuss them properly with all members involved) i suggest you simply post a new bug tracker report and attach your diff file, even if it is not tested (in 99.9% of the cases we have to modify/adjust/re-arrange submitted patches anyway).

Hello everybody,

It has been a while since my last post, but there has been a lot of development going on behind the scenes and we now have our first RC release with a much better phpBB3 frameless integration.

We ended up not implementing the append_sid hook at all and instead decided to do the url parsing after phpBB3 has rendered its output. The advantage of this is that full URLs are available for parsing (rather than part of the URLs in append_sid), no modifications are needed to phpBB3 and it also is much faster to not use the append_sid hook.

After dropping the append_sid hook, we have added the phpbb_user_session_handler hook to update the $user global to correct the paths. This allowed confirm boxes to work again and gives control over what URLs are used for phpBB3 emails.

Now we have been implementing the template_display hook, to do on the fly parsing on phpBB3 template data, such as registration and forgot password URLS.

Here you can see our hooks.php file, as it might be handy for other people who are trying to integrate phpBB3.

Thanks again to the phpBB3 team for making such an awesome product! Marius

Hi
I would like to check out the upgradations. but the link is not working. It is showing 404 error. May be because I am quite late to the thread so I request you to post the updated or working link for more information

Thanks in advance.
