Smart Board ComponentPlugin

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
This component creates a "mirror" of your IP.Board based forum in Joomla with basic functions. The main purpose of this extension is to provide access to all forum topics and posts without leaving Joomla (lite bridge).


• Gives you the opportunity to use the best forum engine available — IP.Board — on your Joomla site.
• Uses IP Board API for better compatibility. NEW!
• Respects all IP.Board forum and group permissions to view, delete, edit, post and all other available actions.
• Syncs user passwords between Joomla and IP.Board (optional). NEW!
• Automatic registration for both Joomla and IP.Board on first login (optional). NEW!
• Available actions: edit global announcement, reply, delete, open, close and merge topics, edit topic titles, delete and merge posts (multi-moderation supported). NEW!
• Customizable WYSIWIG editor and text parser.
• Much easier to use, than IP Board itself. Great for communities with common folk without IT-geeks.
