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!
TESTING FOR JFUSION 2.0 THAT SUPPORTS JOOMLA! 3.0 AND HIGHER. VISIT OUT SITE FOR MORE INFORMATION IF YOU WISH TO HELP SPEED UP THE RELEASE OF JFUSION 2.0
JFusion is constantly worked on, updated and improved, but although there are frequent upgrades to this component it doesn't mean any extra work for you as site administrator as the JFusion component does all the work for you, it's basically just a one click update to upgrade this component to the latest version.
Support is excellent and fast and I would recommend using the JFusion component over any other forum integration solution.
Besides the extension works like a dream, I would highlight the extremely fast and friendly support.
The documentation is growing together with the project, and the team seems to be very talented and experienced also in general joomla things. I got several other useful information regarding issues outside JFusion just searching and reading their support forum.
For those who use joomla 1.5 with phpBB3 this is The Bridge. Highly recommended.
Very big thanks to JFusion for making this possible!
- Perfect, JFusion, now I can continue with my site.
Jfusion does that and many more. Exceptional support from the guys (Imran ty friend) and great package that promises an easy installation. Also i enjoyed the Tutorial Videos, what else someone can ask to?
Great job :)
Just want to tell what happened with me.
I was looking for a suitable CMS to be used with my website since a long time and finally picked Joomla.
I needed a forum and I didn't found anything better than phpBB3.
I need a dual login for the whole website including Joomla and phpBB3.
I've tried some bridges for some individuals and did not found anything suitable.
Later on I've tried the Rocket Werx Bridge as the rocket theme team released amazing styles for both of phpBB3 and Joomla and the bridge worked fine with phpBB 3.0.2 and when I've updated to 3.0.3 & 3.0.4 later on I had some issues that has not been solved yet, but this is not our topic now.
I've tried JFusion 3 days ago and I have to mention something regarding this bridge:
1- Really piece of cake to install and set.
2- Working like a dream.
3- When I had an issue I've found one of the team members replying me with an amazing support and solved all the issues I had.
The bottom line is that I am glad using this bridge and I hope to find it like that all the time especially when updating any of Joomla or phpBB3.
the setup for this one was a hack. unzip this in this folder. unzip this in another folder. recode this or that...far from my simple joomla componant i wanted.
so in my desire to get this done, i found jfusion, or they found me perhaps (grin) and in very short order not only where all my login problems fixed, but they setup another fresh site for me w/phpbb3 installed and used jfusion (it's a simple componant, no manual hacking necessary - WAHOO!).
their support is the best i've seen to date on joomla componants and their willingness to go however far it takes to help the customer will make this the "go to" app for bridging not only phpbb3 but *ALL* major forums out there. this componant is simply that good and that simple to use.
with the quality of the product coupled with their customer service, this is likely to be THE bridge to use for everyone in very short order.
This is "the one", "the plugin" for Joomla and various forum integration.
I use it now for several time and it works great!
I have this integrated with vBulletin and Moodle. Both are working great in test environments and will move to production on the beta by next weekend if we don't run into any show stoppers.
The installation was painless. The "upgrade version" button in the component control panel made the installation of the first patch even less painless.
Top quality work and I'm off to make a donation now.
I am extremely sorry to know that JFusion did not work for you. Did you try finding an answer on our forums? I am sorry but I could not find a user with the same username. I hope I can help you to sort all your problems.
Before JFusion, I tried 2 or 3 extensions. I don't want to nominate them now.
So, finally I got over this one. At first I thought it was a complicated and painful process. I went on reading the documentation. It was all clear from the first lecture, and decided to try it.
I have tried it on two phpBB3 forums : one with 2000 users and one with ~3000 users. It worked. No bugs in the sync process as I expected.
It was a little hard to visual integrate the forum in my website.. but with the great support on the forum I've managed to merge the two user databases and also visual integrate Joomla! with phpBB3.
I was really amazed! I advice all of those who want to synchronize phpBB users with Joomla! users, to give this one a try.
I don't know if JFusion works that well with VBulletin or other boards, but from my point of view it deserves 6 / 5 stars rating.
Cheers, and thank you for this one!
