(filed under Administration and All as I couldn't find Login/Authentication under Feature)
The authentication between Tiki and phpBB is no longer working.
This was originally reported for version 14.x - I am experiencing under version 20.x - making an assumption that all the versions inbetween have the same issue.
In terms of reproducing the issue:
In terms of Importance, it is difficult for me at this stage to appraise this since I am new to Tiki and it appears not many other people have reported this.
However, there are certain features in Tiki's own forum which may present challenges to forum managers (such as the current table structure for forum sections, as well as the inability to be able to sort forums arbitrarily, and lastly the ability to create sub-forums) so a solution such as phpBB would help. So I am classing as 7: it would stop some people to consider adopting Tiki because this feature is no longer working.
Please see https://tiki.org/tiki-view_forum_thread.php?comments_parentId=56547 for details of original user who first logged the problem, as well as a screenshot of what I get in version 20.x
Note: I am unable to use Tiki Show - I would need a phpBB database in there to demonstrate

To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tikiwiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
