Now get full control over integrating multiple softwares at the same time, with the new master/slave capabilities. JFusion is a free GPL plugin for the award winning Content Management System (CMS) Joomla. JFusion provides universal user integration, by extending the Joomla 1.5 user authentication framework without any core hacks. JFusion does not support every software out-of-the-box, but is designed for people to easily write a plugin to create a bridge, without re-inventing the wheel.
JFusion proves that Joomla is the future of CMS softwares. Which other CMS software can act as a portal and integrate your users across multiple different platforms? None! Now you have full control over all of your web applications using JFusion.
Currently supported softwares are;
1. vBulletin 3.8.0
2. phpBB 3.0.x
3. MyBB 1.4
4. SMF 1.1.8
5. SMf 2.x
11. Oscommerce 2.x, 3.x, XT, Zen, Max, SEO
15. Universal plugin (integration to "anything"? as long as it is simple enugh)
A number of modules are provided with the JFusion package such as;
1. Login Module
2. Latest Activity Module
3. User Activity Module
4. Who is Online Module
Additonal features such as a search plugin (integrates external search i.e. from you integrated software inside your Joomla! search) and a discussion bot(posts news items posted in Joomla! into your integrated forums automatically).
In addition to a user sync feature JFusion now also provides user-group sync using which you are able to link user-groups between softwares (handy if you have membership subscriptions that need to be synchronized between softwares)
Excellent support is available from the JFusion support playform, where our JFusion Support Team is ready to answer any questions you may have. Make sure you also check out our documentation section, as it has many guides on how to make JFusion work for you. With our new version checker and one-click upgrade functions, it has never been easier to keep your JFusion installation up to date.
JFusion is arguably the most actively developed integration software for Joomla. Just imagine what features we will be bringing to you next!
Since you have having problems with mods, we can only assume that you are using frame less integration. A mod can in may case be seen like a car part for car x you try to fit in car y.
As you can image parts will not always fit. You Will require to modify jfusion to apply the changes properly a global variable.
The support forum as you call it is not for support anymore have been so for a year or so. go to the support section.
If you conclusion is that jfusion do not work, that is your choice.
Jfusion does very complex work and requires some basic functions (including cURL for some software integrations). Asking us to do very complex integrations without some basic software functions is like asking a brain surgeon to operate with only a fork.
If you need complex integrations for your website you better get dump our bad host. Really there is no valid excuse for a host not to support cURL.
Of cause i cant tell if i have seen your ticket or not since i do not know who you are.
If you used the forum, then that would be the reason since the forum is not for support.
go to the support section and reopen or create a new ticket.
First, let me emphasize that the support was adequate. Every time I wrote, they responded within a day or two. The programmers and I wrote back and forth about 10 times over the course of a week and half.
However, none of their solutions seem to fix the problem. Finally, I offered to write a blank check and told them, whatever they want to charge me, I would be willing to pay for them to spend 5 minutes to check out my site and see if they could fix my problem.
However, they said they were too busy, regardless of how much I pay. It was really disappointing. I bent over backwards doing everything they asked, only to be abandoned in the end.
So, now I'm uninstalling JFusion and using something else. If you are using MediaWiki, I recommend that you avoid JFusion. It may be great for other platforms, but not good for MediaWiki.
I apologize for writing a negative review.
Firstly I apologize for the problem caused to you. I understand that it can be quite frustrating for the end user to not having required support.
All our team members are volunteers who contribute to the project only in their spare time. As such its not necessary that they always have time to help all our users. I hope you understand.
I can look into this issue for you if you are willing to give it another try. Please drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to seeing a positive reply from you soon.
It allows to sync the users, show latest SMF forum posts on Joomla page and reply to joomla article on the forum.
I'm looking forward to try it out with MediaWiki and Gallery.
JFusion team is the best !!
I used it for my phpbb forum. I didnt' need to sync users, only need to show in frontpage a last topic/thread module.
I did it in a very easy why, without hacks or changinh in the phpbb database/files. Options for the module and for the extentions allows me to customize it as I need.
It simply works!
there is no support offered on the forum as we use a dedicated support software suite (kayako) to better answer/track questions. this is because posts get losts on the forum and because our support software give you more features (reply by email, live chat, etc). if you want support please click on the "support" link on the top of the page or visit support.fusion.org
My brief was to provide a site for a professional organisation whose members needed a wiki and a forum within a secure area. Without JFusion I would have found this hard to do.
Concentration is the key to setting up JFusion correctly; ignore all the documentation and then you *will* have problems.
When I got stuck their forums helped and Fanno (Morten) is superb.
So, I thought, let's give jFusion a try. It was a wise decision! JFusion's integration is amazing! You just have to follow instructions in the documentation (although a bit outdated), understand the difference between master and slave plugins, and you're set! Just be sure you know what you're doing.
Now we have Joomla as a layer where the mehdi bridge lays the phpBB display, and JFusion handles user-authentication. Great! As a token of gratitude we have donated to help jFusion's further development. It is a great product and a lot of hard work has been put into it. Thank you again jFusion!
