This is a plugin to JFusion to integrate Joomla with UBB.threads.

I'm not the original developer, but I've updated it to work with JFusion 1.5.2 and done some minor additions.

I can't guarantee that it works for you, but I'm running it on my site.

My setup is using UBB.threads as "master" and "Joomla internal" as slave and having "Dual Login" set. This means that users can log into either Joomla or UBB.threads and get logged in to both.

It should also create users in Joomla automatically if they don't exist yet, and keep the databases in sync.

If you have any questions, I'm happy to help if I can.

Does Joomla and UBBThreads need to be installed on the same domain, or can one be on a subdomain?

I'm pretty sure they need to be on the same domain as the set cookies would have to be on the same domain.

If you set the cookie domain to ".example.com" in both systems, it should work. Note the dot at the start.

Sorry for the delayed response and thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Here's what I have setup:

mydomain.com (Live site with UBBThreads 7.4.2 running)
examplesub.mydomain.com (New Site with Joomla installed)

I tried installing the plug in through the joomla cpanel, and got these errors (I changed folder names in the message):

Warning: require_once(D:\xxxx\xxxx\subdomain-example\libraries\joomla\installer\adapters\jfusion.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in D:\xxxx\xxxx\subdomain-example\libraries\joomla\installer\installer.php on line 216

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'D:\xxxx\xxxx\subdomain-example\libraries\joomla\installer\adapters\jfusion.php' (include_path='.;C:\php5\pear') in D:\xxxx\xxxx\subdomain-example\libraries\joomla\installer\installer.php on line 216

Not sure what that "installer.php" file is. It is not in that folder (hense the error)...

Any ideas would be appreciated...

OK, let's just say that I feel really stupid right now... I was trying to install the plugin in Joomla, not within Jfusion's plugin manager...

It installed. I will be working on configuring this later when I can backup my DB and take the forums down.

I'm sure I will be back, but hopefully not. Thanks for creating this plugin...

And I'm back... question, I'm getting the following errors:

Warning: include(\includes\config.inc.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in D:\xxxx\xxxx\xxxx\administrator\components\com_jfusion\plugins\ubb\admin.php on line 108

Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening '\includes\config.inc.php' for inclusion (include_path='.;C:\php5\pear') in D:\xxxx\xxxx\xxxx\administrator\components\com_jfusion\plugins\ubb\admin.php on line 108

I do not have a folder named "php5 (i.e. C:\php5\pear) mine is named "PHP"... so I am assuming this why I am getting this error?

Also, in my DIR C:\php\pear\ there is no folder called "includes" and therefore no file called "config.inc.php"

Any ideas what I need to do?

Thanks in advance...

Warning: include(\includes\config.inc.php)
Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening '\includes\config.inc.php' for inclusion

That's saying your config.inc.php file doesn't exist; are you using the full path to the config file?

I see where that needed to be added under "Direct path to software". Had to find that file in my forum DIR.

Two other messages I'm seeing are:

ubb: Dual login might work best with the following cookie domain .exampledomain.com

ubb: Dual login might work best with the following cookie path /

I'm set up with a domain (live site running UBBThreads) and my new joomla site (located at a subdomain example.exampledomain.com)

The plan is to do away with the subdomain when I go live... Any insight on these messages?

Thanks so much for you help!

unfortunately I'm not using Jamoola to test it, but I Googled the error and I've seen some mentions of an error in Jamoola.

I had found this on jFusion's forums:

Topic Link About Error - JFusion's Forums

They are discussing a work around for VBulletin, not sure if this might help?

I'm not sure if anyone is even reading these posts at the moment, but I will continue to post updates in the hope that someone will shed a little light on some of the issues I am encountering. Here's the latest update:

I was able to get the above problem resolved... the issue was that I was trying to use Joomla login as the master and the UBBthreads Jfusion Plugin as the slave. Reversed that (as it was originally described above) and now when users register through UBBthreads, an account is created in Joomla. Users who login through either side are logged into both.

First minor issue: When they log out, if they log out of joomla, it logs them out of UBBthreads, but if they log out of UBBthreads, they are still logged into the Joomla side... any thoughts?

Second issue: During the initial user sync, my Joomla "ADMIN" account was flagged as a conflict. I tried to ignore, then update the slave software, and later even tried deleting and recreating the account from scratch, but no matter what I try, my admin account has been rendered useless. Can't log in, I get the error "JUser::_load: User does not exist
"

When I log in as another superadmin, I can see the account. It's very odd. Not sure if anyone has also had something like this happen?

Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Can you hack the jamoola templates and change the logout link to go to the UBB's logout page?

As for your error, I don't know; is the username taken in threads? Or is the user #1 account not the same as the ubb's user #1 (or whatever?)

Thanks so much for you help!

I'm not one to start hacking templates... I'm already using a 3rd party plugin for login/registration. It's not such a big deal.

The admin account was unique in both systems. Not sure what happened...

Any thoughts on my two messages "in the quote above"?
