Important: Currently not compatible with IPS 4.3. For more details, see this topic:



With IPBWI for WordPress v4, you will get flawless Single Sign On.

How does SSO work?

IP.board brings a SSO API which allows to add several "slaves" as satellites to a "master" IP.board installation. This results in a robust single sign on solution allowing unlimited slaves even on completely different domains - same origin policy which normally breaks setting cookies for different domains has been bypassed here successfully.

  • IPcore/IP.board 4.2 or higher
  • PHP 7

THIS is a great plugin!

It bridged my Wordpress site to my IP.Board flawlessly. :thumbsup:

The first thing you may notice (and potentially be a little weary of) is IPWIB's website.
As of this writing, it's really pretty confusing and hard to know exactly what or how the plug-in works from reading the website information.

But I read reviews here and decided to jump on this as I really wanted to bridge my Wordpress site with my IP Board.

THIS PLUGIN IS INCREDIBLY PERFECT and it works great. Don't let the website detour you from getting this if you need a Wordpress to IP bridge.

AND, Mathias is super quick in responding (even tho I live in Southern California and he's in Berlin). 
I had two issues (it was really me not quite understanding the setup) and Mathias took care of me personally and quickly.

I'm super grateful and happy that I bought this plugin.

AND!  I'm using a Wordpress Multisite build (bridging multiple domains to one IP board setup). This plugin made it possible.

(Note: Sorry to give the IPWIB website a sort of bad review Mathias,  ... I just wanted to make sure other's look past that and buy your plugin)

Thanks for being so personal Mathias :)

Matthias was really helpful with all the issues we experienced on our website. His willingness to communicate over Skype so we went through problems together and solved them was greatly appreciated.

Overall it's a solid product, worth the price for sure. Looking forward for further extensions which we'll be able to use :-)

I can see already that many of you will hate the price tag.  Sure it is steep, but again, if you really need this functionality don't hesitate to buy it.  I reached out to many wordpress developers and the lowest I was able to get an estimate on was around $350, most were over $400 and didn't include the other cool API functionality that is included with this.  It installed easily and worked without issues.  Support was very quick to answer any questions I had.  I am very happy I purchased this, it was a big question mark on my to-do list for a while and it delivers.  Remember this plugin allows you to keep your forum as the master system.  If you want to handle all your users and everything else in IPB and not migrate your users to WP, this is the system you need.  The other SSO plugin for WP is great, but that is better if you already have a WP site and want to add a forum.

We use this across three sites with >50k users. Implementation was not flawless, but more importantly, the developer worked with us to eliminate any bugs and has updated the plugin at least twice since then. As others have said, this plugin at this price provides excellent value. Also, while troubleshooting our implementation, Matthias taught me a few things about IPB I didn't know and maybe should've known before wasting his time and he was quick to reply and polite throughout.


We implemented this long after our WordPress and IPB sites had been set up. The fact many users already had accounts in both systems did not cause any problems. It was pretty smooth sailing.

Matthias is awesome!!  My implementation had a couple of technical bumps at the beginning due to error messages overloading IPS' firewall and triggering a block.  Not really anything Matthias or I could have forseen on that one.  Matthias quickly responded to multiple emails, helped me walk through the whole thing, and get it operational same day.  Still need to run the bridge through full operational testing, but so far it is looking super good!!

While the initial sticker shock might scare you, those who really need a good Wordpress bridge should not hesitate. The bridge works flawlessly and makes a very complicated issue on the outside look dead simple once you install the app. In my case it made a brand new woocommerce shop have as many registrations as my ips community. Something, which I was never going to achieve starting from 0. I really cannot put a price tag on this.

The other reviews also mentioned it, but I feel the need to say it too - if you have any questions, the support offered by Matthias is sensational.

I can highly recommend also two of the addons - the user import and group sync. It made the syncing of the userbase between IPS and WP much quicker and with the correct groups and permissions.

Great plugin, works like a charm. Also Matthias was able to help us regarding a server issue, my host was causing. Excellent support, excellent answers at pre sales and the software delivers exactly what was advertised. Thank you for this bridge!
