Phpbb and mambo

apps

#1

hello all,

I have an active phpbb forum and I’m wanting to create a front-end for it using Mambo. My question is, can I use my phpbb database for Mambo? My concern is making the transition seamless. I want my forum users to be able to log in through Mambo.

As you’ve probably figured out, I’m certainly no expert in these things. Any advice is much appreciated. thanks!

Hi, there are converters and a mambo (joomla)-version of phpbb. Many will tell you to convert to simpleboard or another forum platform.

Go to the Joomla.org forums for some discussion, links to converters etc.
