I'm very much impressed with JWebTrees. The Auto login worked right after i copied the jwtbridge.php file to Webtrees folder. Only issue is Webtrees (direct link)not getting logged out once i log-out of Joomla.

Thanks a lot for this extension.

It works nicely, for me on J2.5.3, it shows the webtrees inside joomla, but there's no real integration, just showing the program inside Joomla, still a lot of improvement is possible, and I hope that they will work on that.

Well, apart from creating a Joomla user in webtrees, and automatically logging them in, what other integration could there be?

And if it's not doing this for you, then there is a problem with your setup. Please ask for support in this case.

Could not get it to work with joomla 1.7 and there is absolutely no support.
Owner's reply

Support doesn't just magically appear - you do need to advise me by email of your problem before I can help you.
Going by 2 other reqeusts I resolved, I would suggest first checking that both the Jwebtrees component directory and the webtrees data directory are writeable.

This is a nice plug-in and seems to work well. A really nice feature would be a way to merge the Joomla Users with the WebTree users instead of making the user have to create another login. Let me know if you have any questions.
Owner's reply

Unfortunately I missed a change in some variables within webtrees which broke this component a coupla versions back.
The latest v1.3.1 fixes this and is now back to a single Joomla login.

Easy to use, worked straight out of the box.
Didn't need support, not bad for a joomla fumbler.
Used to create a menu link to my family tree subdomain.
Well done.
