Hi, how does this compare/offer advantage over phpBB-osCommerce Bridge which sounds quite good
The phpBB-osCommerce Bridge forces username as firstname + last initial, phpBB2 integration allows any username chosen.
phpBB-osCommerce Bridge requires phpBB to be installed under osCommerce catalog folder, and share osCommerce sessions. However, if you login from phpBB, you are not login to osCommerce. phpBB2 integration recommends to install phpBB in a folder aside, and no matter where you login from, you're login to both side.
Both phpBB2 integration and phpBB-osCommerce Bridge contrib are based on phpbb2.0.8a integration, but phpBB2 integration fixed more bugs in the old code, and it is ready to support phpBB SEO.
Also, I believe this phpBB2 integration contrib has a better install guide document, and is easier to install.
All above comparisons between these 2 contrib are based on my impression of the first phpBB-osCommerce Bridge version.
