Free version.About InvisionBridge's WP-IPB Bridge
WP-IPB Bridge is a Wordpress plug-in that integrates your Wordpress and IPB usernames and passwords, posts/threads, comments/replies, theme/skins and user groups. WP-IPB is simple to use, with powerful user database integration and packed with the right tools needed to help you manage your members, user groups and content.About Wordpress
Wordpress is the top open source blogging software with great content management system extensions and vast community support. Easy to manage, with enough tools to handle your homepage, Wordpress is the perfect choice for medium to large IPB communities wanting to have an extensible portal or front page. Member Database
IPB and Wordpress user database are completely integrated, allowing your members to login to either one of the two systems using one single login and password. User management is successful and easily managed using IPB's advanced user management tools, editing a password on your Wordpress CP changes your password on your IPB account. Registration is handled by IPB.User Group Management
Use your Wordpress WP-IPB Bridge CP to change any of your IPB groups into a Wordpress author, editor, contributor or subscriber permission, Wordpress and IPB group permission management is handled with a click of a button.Theme Integration
WP-IPB Bridge's one click theme integration inserts your Wordpress theme's header and footer into your IPB's skin's header and footer making your forum look and feel completely integrated into your blog. An optional feature for the advanced members allows you to manually edit the insertion code to better match your theme and skin integration. Please visit our forums for a simple example of this feature.Cross-post Integration
Select an IPB forum from which cross-post your posts, allowing you to easily update your blog by posting a thread on your forums, or updating your forum by posting on your blog.
Comments are also cross-posted in this same way, giving you the option to choose which system to handle your member's comments and replies. An WP-IPB Bridge CP option allows you to toggle where you want your members to discuss your post or thread, Wordpress's comments or by posting a reply on your IPB thread, or both cross-posting all comments.Changelog for version 1.56Installation in large user tables on IPB now possible: The new plugin supports new installations where there IPB has a large user table, where previously no more than 100 members were supported by the bridge. Although already installed Wordpress installations activating this plugin will still lose their members and have the Wordpress user table filled with the IPB users.Lowercase User Login Bug: The new Wordpress 2.5 caused the plugin to import IPB"s users in lowercase, causing members who use an uppercased login name to have to login using their login name in lowercase, this issue has now been resolve and all login names should be usable in their native IPB form.Scalability: With the ability to import large user tables from IPB into Wordpress, the code has been cleaned up to allow large websites to run the plugin with minimal or no usage of server resources other than the importation of every new IPB member into the Wordpress user table.
Better Widget Support: Widget support for Wordpress 2.5 has now been added, this will allow you to place the IPB user information anywhere you choose to, previously a theme code insert was needed for this function.INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTSQuestion: Do you have what is required to bridge Wordpress and IPB?
