SMF2WP is a simple one way bridge from Simple Machine Forum (v2.0.1 tested) to WordPress (v3.2.1 tested). This means, this one uses databases of SMF Forum and sync to WP database every time a user performs log-in action in both WP and SMF. To get this working, it is highly recommended that you have a fresh install of WordPress with an install of SMF. Also, WP and SMF must be installed in same domain, and should not be being accessed through a subdomain, though it still work. For example, if your website contains of WordPress for news and SMF for forum, if your news is, then your forums should be somewhere like

This plugin will do these following tasks:

  • If a user log in WP, then that user will be logged in SMF using SMF2API.
  • If a user logout WP, then that user will be logged out SMF using SMF2API.
  • If a user log in SMF, will be logged in WP as well.
  • If a user log out SMF, will be loged out WP as well.
