Bridging CPG 1.6.03 with phpBB3.2 - not working
« on: April 14, 2017, 11:21:46 am »

Please move my message if needed ..

Hi, I'm having trouble with bridging ..

Installed everything from scratch and documenting (mostly) everything ..
It still doesn't seem to do what I like it to.

The following gives me the options ...
Go to CPG .. click login
I'm moved to phpBB3, where I sign in (Yes!)
I'm moved back to CPG (Yes!) but still not logged in .. ???

Any suggestions before I quit?

The "documentation" is as follows:

##########################################
Now to bridging .. phpBB - > CPG 1.6.03
##########################################
Install thing from FILE "tunnel2cpg.zip" ..
------------------------------------------------------
use cpg1.6.x_plugin_tunnel2cpg_v1.3.zip instead 1.5.x
------------------------------------------------------

From the Fantastic manual :
"Joomla! and/or phpBB3 to Coppermine Photo Gallery Tunnel
version: 1.2.5

The three zipped files in this package are plugins for CPG Joomla! and phpBB(3.1+).

For CPG:
--------
Install the plugin, cpg1.5.x_plugin_tunnel2cpg_v1.2.5.zip
Configure its 'secret phrase', usergroup settings and optional theme name.

//For Joomla!:
//----------
//Install the plugin, plg_system_cpgtunnel_v1.2.zip
//Enable the plugin and configure its 'secret phrase' (phrase same as CPG) and usergroup settings
//Establish any links in Joomla! that will point to CPG as:  <CPG URL>/index.php?file=tunnel2cpg/joomla
//Use the same link when setting up access to CPG using a Joomla! menu item 'wrapper'

For phpBB3:
------------
Unzip the extension, ron4mac_tunneltocpg_v1.0.0b.zip, into the <phpbb>/ext folder
Enable the extension and configure its 'secret phrase' (phrase same as CPG) and usergroup settings
Establish any links in phpBB3 that will point to CPG as:  <CPG URL>/index.php?file=tunnel2cpg/phpbb3


NOTES:
------
Joomla! and phpBB3 users will have to logout and back in before a tunnel will be established.
Subsequently, when users logout from Joomla! or phpBB3, they will also be logged out of CPG.

Once users have accessed the CPG instance via Joomla! or phpBB3, they will also be able to go directly to the
CPG instance (<CPG URL>) and login with their same Joomla! or phpBB3 username and password.

A sample CPG theme is provided that is designed for use when accessing CPG via a Joomla! menu item wrapper.

You need to decide between the the built in CPG bridge manager method and the Tunnel2CPG plugin method ... you cannot initiate them both.

For the tunnel method, you need to setup both ends, log into phpBB and then access CPG using the link method as described in the tunnel documentation.

As stated, the phpBB tunnel is somewhat beta. I'll set something up to test it with phpBB3.2 as soon as possible.

I updated a test installation of phpBB3 from 3.1.6 to 3.2.0 and had no problem 'tunneling' from phpBB3.2 to CPG1.6(03).

I logged into phpBB and then followed the link <myCPG1.6url>/index.php?file=tunnel2cpg/phpbb3

Again: you cannot use the tunnel and the bridge manager.
