PhpBb3LinkPlugin enables linking between phpBB3 (http://www.phpbb.com/) forum site and TWiki. You can use Twiki WikiWords in Forum site and with mouse click you will get to TWiki page. There is also twiki macro which can used to search forum site for current wiki topic.

About Plugin:

This plugin works with phpBB3 forum 3.0.2. Current implementation of Plugin is not so elegant because it uses local /tmp folder for creating list of current wiki words in TWiki! This list is used to match words in phpBB forum site. This could be security issue so be carefull when using this plugin. Implementation of PhpBb3LinkPlugin plugin is currently more like hack but I think some of you could be interested of it? Let's try to make it better together ?
