Please, read the instructions below before enabling this extension. It was tested a thousand times and we assure you, it DOES work.

Step 1: Installation and settings

Nothing complex here. Just install this plugin as usual and set up accordingly.

Updating JomSocial profile

To update new user's JomSocial profile you have to setup IP.Board - JomSocial connections first. Enable Use JomSocial in plugin settings, then select JomSocial and IP.Board fields from the lists correspondingly: Gender - Gender, Website - Website, etc.


  • Number of selected fields must be equal in both lists, otherwise no syncing will occur.
  • Fields settings must be equal on both sides or you'll end with wrong info on JomSocial profiles. For example, default gender field for IP.Board contains "m" and "f", but JomSocial has "male" and "female".

Don't forget to read hints for fields in settings — they are very helpful.

Step 2: Usage

When enabled, this plugin allows your visitors to login with their IP.Board username (or email) and password. If a visitor already has Joomla account, he will be able to use his username/password combinations from Joomla and from IP.Board equally. Plugin will just check if his IP.Board credentials valid and, if a user with the same email exists in Joomla, will allow to login. For non-existing users a new account will be created.

Step 3: Additional information

A couple things you should know:

  • There's no password syncing, but it doesn't actually matter, because user will be able to login, if either his Joomla or IP.Board password is good.
  • There's no regular syncing of user profile. JomSocial and IP.Board profiles will be synced only once, when forum member authenticates in Joomla for the first time.
  • If there's a user in your Joomla or IP.Board database, who have his username equal to email used as a login and this email is already registered, authentication will be cancelled and error message displayed.
  • Members banned on forum will not be able to login into Joomla with their credentials. Ever.
