An even bigger social hub for Joomla

A social phpBB forum

This particular integration for AutoTweetNG and Joocial goes beyond our traditional social plugin. phpBB is the software that powers most web forums and it is integrated with Joomla! via AlterBrain's p8pbb bridge.

Thanks to AlterBrains' p8pBB bridge, the #1 free, open source bulletin board software is integrated with AutoTweet PRO and Joocial on Joomla CMS!

phpBB Forum is now integrated with AutoTweet and Joocial!

phpBB is a free flat-forum bulletin board software solution that can be used to stay in touch with a group of people or can power your entire website. On Joomla! CMS, AlterBrains' p8pBB bridge is a complete bi-directional integration of phpBB forum. Forum is displayed inside Joomla! template as usual component. And now, AutoTweet PRO and Joocial are integrated to automate and publish phpBB Topics and Posts to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more.

Simply, AutoTweet PRO or Joocial publish from phpBB to social networks.

The new "AutotweetP8pbb bridge for phpBB forum" plugin is already available in the latest AutoTweetNG PRO and Joocial 7.9.5 or 8.0.6 Beta.

Joocial Composer App Editor

Mobile Apps for Joomla! are coming. At this time, we are glad to introduce Joocial Composer App.

Breaking new grounds, Joocial Composer App is a mobile app to manage your social content management from your Joomla! CMS site.
