  1. They are all synced, Matthias. Same email and same username. The only difference is the name to show. I will check if that is the problem. Edit: Nope, that's not the problem. I have changed some data in my WP profile and it changed also in IP.Board, so the user is synced. Then I have posted an article in WP, it created a topic in IPB, but it did not set the topic ID to the article, I had to do it manually.
  2. Great, I was able to download now.
  3. Oh, I know about IPWI topic/comments settings, and its set to "Wordpress Post author", but for example, if I review a pending article from one of my writers and then I publish it, WP shows the writer as the author in WP, as usual, but the post in the forum appear with me as the author and not the WP post author, as intended. About the excerpt lenght, that's not a problem. What I want is a forum topic created after publishing an article, containing the full article in the post instead of the excerpt. If that's possible, then great. If not, then it is not a big problem either. EDITION: Ok, the "problem" about posting the excerpt instead of the full article has been solved by changing one line of code in the module sourcecode. But still the problem about the author being me if I publish someone else's WP post remains. @straightvisions NEW EDIT: I found out that the problem is not only with the author settings. When I publish a new article in WordPress it creates a new post in the forum, BUT IT DOES NOT LINK ONE TO THE OTHER. I mean, when you open the article, in the comments section you can see that it says "there is no topic created" and if someone leave a comment, a new topic is created and that topic is then linked to the WordPress publication. You can see how I configured the options here: As you can see, Forum for Comments is set to "Portal", and the Auto create Discussion Topics is enabled. It does those two things, but it does not link one to the other. In fact, after I publish the WP article, I can see that there is no topic ID in the WP Edit screen, and also no category selected either. For the other option, you can see that I have selected "Wordpress Post Author" as the IP.board's Author ID for the topic created, but as I have commented before, that does not work either, because if I publish an article on which I am not the author, the article is correctly published in WP, but the IP.board's post is assigned to me as author instead of the WordPress article post author. I think that there may be a single problem here, causing this two things: not linking the forum post with the WP article and not assigning the author correctly.
  4. Hello! I recently purchased IPWI for Wordpress 3, and I am truly happy with it. It all works great and smooth, I love it. But there is one little thing I can't solve. My WP theme let me add a personalized excerpt for the articles, so I can improve SEO among other things, but this caused a little problem when I was using another bridge system, and now the same happens woth IPWI. The problem is that when I post something in WP, a topic is created in the IPB forum but the content of that topic is the article's personalized excerpt instead of the full article. With the other bridge system, I solved the problem by changing a line of code from $content = !empty($post->post_excerpt) ? $post->post_excerpt : $post->post_content; to $content = $post->post_content; but I don't know what to touch here on IPWI to get the same results. I'm sure that the solution is just that simple too, I'll appreciate if you can point me in the right direction to fix this. And another detail is that the topic in IPB is created by me, even if I publish a WP article written by another author on my site, like if it does not take in account who is the author but instead who is logged and posting the article. Thanks!
  5. Thank you very much, Matthias! Although I can't download the file. Apparently, I don't have permissions to download yet.
  6. One question. In your site I saw that you posted a link to have the ip board userbar directly in WP (https://ipbwi.com/2012/05/24/howto-ip-board-userbar-in-wordpress/). But the link is dead, it redirects to the homepage. ┬┐Is there any place where I can see that tutorial?
  7. I've purchased it, Matthias. Thanks for your software!
  8. Great! Thanks for answering, Matthias. I look forward to purchase it from the IPS marketplace then, and replace that old and ugly IPS Connect.
  9. Hello! First of all, thanks in advance for your attention. I would like to make a few questions before deciding to buy IPWI for WordPress. I usually read all the information about a product to know if what I am purchasing will fit my needs, but in this case, there are no clear information to be found about the product, since internet is filled with contradictory / old information about it and I really need to know if it will work for what I need. I own a videogames culture website, having WP (latest version) as the main page for news and articles, and IP Board (3.4.x) as the forum system. I am using WP IPS Connect right now as a bridge for SSO and for syncing WP posts with a forum post, including comments. But IPS Connect is rather old and basic, its development appears to be really slow, and some bugs started to appear mostly because of WP updates. So here are my questions: 1-I have read that IPWI for WordPress will allow SSO for my users, so they can login in the forum (ip board) and they are automatically logged too in the news portal (wordpress). I have also read somewhere that users will sync this way: if a new user is created in IP Board, it will be automatically duplicated and synced with WP. That is great and that is one thing I need, but I want to know if I can select somehow which fields to sync, because for example my writers use the same credentials to login, of course, but they use their real names in the news site as the name to show, andtheir nicknames in the forum. WP IPS Connect change the name in the forum too if a user change his/her name to show in WP, but I was able to remove that sync touching a line of code, keeping all the other fields synced except that field, and also the profile picture, being one in WP and a different one in IP Board. 2-This is not clear to me right now, I have not read enough information about it. With WP IPS Connect, when I post something in WP, a new topic is created inside an specific forum in IP Board. And the comments posted in IPB appear as comments in WP and vice-versa. Can IPWI for WordPress do this same thing? And what about for directly replacing WP comments system and embedding IPB comments in the comments section automatically? 3-I just need the two things I asked above, so any other features will be appreciated. This third question is about updating this system. Right now I am using IPB 3.4.x just because IPB 4 does not have a bridge for syncing with WP. You are working on a new version of IPWI for WP, supporting IPB 4, and I want to know if I buy IPWI for WP 3, will I be able to update to IPWI for WP 4 free of charge when it launches? Thanks for your time!
