Support will be given ofcause, but not reccomended for production usage yet.


Goal of 3.0 is to change interaction with joomla so that jfusion it self is independed, and i will have more easy time to keep up with joomla changes.


Side note:

I have not converted phpbb 3.1 plugin yet. That will be one of the last thing to be done.

Can I request a custom JFusion plugin?

Written by Henk Wevers.

Can I request a custom JFusion plugin?

Generally yes, you can request the creation of a custom JFusion plugin. In order for us to do that we need to have one of the following: a license for the software to be integrated or access to a test or staging site with this software installed.


About JFusion

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.x -  2.5.x and with jfusion 2.x also Joomla 3.x user authentication framework without any core hacks.

With JFusion your users can login to both Joomla the software integrated by JFusion using the same username/password, the Joomla login even logs the user into all softwares. No core hacks are made which has the advantage that your can upgrade your software normally without reconfiguring JFusion.

JFusion also comes with a latest activity module, that displays the latest activity on the forum in Joomla and a login module that displays the forum avatar in a Joomla login module.

Jfusion also has features such as search module, who online and discussion bot.

JFusion does has bi-directional user-sync, which means that users can be both imported and exported from Joomla.

Some jfusion plugins also provide virtuel integration. Allowing you to display the content of a plugin inside joomla. Making it look like there are one and the same.

    We used jFusion to integrate our phpBB users within the Joomla authentication system. We were already using the mehdi bridge, but the way it wanted to integrate the users was not fitting to us, because mehdi requires that all users must create a new password after integration.

    So, I thought, let's give jFusion a try. It was a wise decision! JFusion's integration is amazing! You just have to follow instructions in the documentation (although a bit outdated), understand the difference between master and slave plugins, and you're set! Just be sure you know what you're doing.

    Now we have Joomla as a layer where the mehdi bridge lays the phpBB display, and JFusion handles user-authentication. Great! As a token of gratitude we have donated to help jFusion's further development. It is a great product and a lot of hard work has been put into it. Thank you again jFusion!

    I would have to say, I have tried Joomdle as well and in comparison JFusion beats it hands down. This bridge is excellent if you need to bridge a number of different components or programs into your Joomla install, my only complaint is that in bridging Moodle, sometimes the Moodle side over rides Joomla and ends up being full screened eliminating the Joomla side all together.

    A minor issue to deal with, I am sure it is just in need of some tweaking and is nothing big, but honestly, this is the way to go.

    I develop professional websites for my clients and use Joomla in every instance as well as JFusion since nothing can of yet.

    Hey, i would just like to say this is one of the best script i found. Great support as well.

    I know a number of paid scripts that do not even come close to what jfusion does. Excellent work!

    Also, just want to say thanks to all the developers.
