Worth every cent. If you're planning on running XF and WP, there is no better option for linking the two. Just make sure you read the instructions properly when syncing. The bulk user syncing makes this a must have. Also, the customer support is awesome!
THIS is the update I've been waiting for. We had a forum with 25k users and a Wordpress site with 45k users with no easy way of syncing these existing accounts. The 1.0 - 1.4 version of this add-on was great for new accounts it hadn't achieved (in my mind) it's full potential until the 1.5 release. It took some time but all our users are now synced between two databases. And with the supplemental Register New Users to WordPress our site works exactly as I've wanted it too since migrating to Xenforo. Users can register in the forum (I prefer its registration over WP) and that info is sent to WP and everyone is connected.

Two minor issues did crop up: at around 28k users the syncing did hang and I ultimately had to restart it. Not a big deal, just took a little extra time as the program started from the beginning and confirmed users had already been synced. The second issue is a number of users did have to reset their passwords even after I disabled Sync User Registration as was recommended. Again, not a big deal, I just made a post for users so they knew to reset their password.

Overall this add-on is worth its weight in gold, and the developer is amazing in responding.
The bridge has some of the best support behind it. Alex was incredibly helpful, responsive, and patient with my barrage of questions. I'm looking forward to seeing the upcoming features of the WP to XF plugin and know it will be well built.

I'm glad XFtoWP can fit in your setup and I hope it has made your sales process a little smoother! There is still some great new stuff on the way for the plugin!
Excellently made, author is active and responsive, plugin did exactly what I needed it to do. Saved me much time by not having to mess with a nonsense API endpoint and WP All Import approach. Thank you.

Thank you and I couldn't agree more about the endpoints! Less plugins, less problems.
Great add-on here that fills a void by another one being shut down. Alex is a great dev and very helpful with issues. He's actively adding features/functionality to the add-on as well!

We only use this add-on for the discussion functionality at the moment but will be working toward some level of user sync also.

Thank you for the review and I'm glad you can get value out of the range of features. The best is still to come for XFtoWP. :)
We tried this on our client store.

The WP to XF registration works, but however, with complex passwords, this doesn't work. The developer was ready to solve our issues but the feature we wanted was not available with this plugin. We were also not interested in giving the dev our website access since it didn't work out of the box.

Anyways, the plugin was purchased and it's of no use to us. The developer is not ready to offer a refund.

I can see a lot of potential with this if it offers a reverse compatibility, I mean if it can sync xf registration to wp that would be great.

Thanks for the review! XFtoWP 1.3 fixes the complex passwords issue (now uses better decoding) with other new features on the way. Bulk importing not far behind!
I've been using this plug-in since its beta and have it seen gradually improve. The team behind it has always been very responsive and helpful with questions and any issues that arise. Now that a stable version has been released I felt compelled to write a review.

Overall this plug-in is wonderful. I mainly use it for syncing users between WP and Xenforo. While I would prefer it to utilize the Xenforo registration system as I find it more refined and polished I realize the developers have been working to integrate their plug-in to work with WP registration plugins. As of this writing it's limited to commercial plug-ins only and I would like to see free/freemium add-ons also supported.

Another thing I would like to see is a way for the plug-in to do a scan of usernames and email address to generate a list for auto syncing. (It would also help in weeding out duplicate/sock accounts.)

All that said, version 1.2 does what it intends to do and it does it well. Hopefully as time goes on we'll see more refinements and additions to it.

Thank you for the review and your help along the way! We have some ambitious plans for the plugin and with the success of the major 1.2 release we are excited at what is now possible to build next.
This was money well spent! The development of this plugin is awesome, and the developer's attention to detail is inspiring! If you run a Wordpress site and are looking for an option to connect a SOLID forum platform like Xenforo....save yourself the hours wasted on researching inferior options and buy XFtoWP right now! None of the other options will compare! Trust me, I spent (wasted) WEEKS researching! Disclaimer: I do not work for or have any affiliation with XFtoWP. I'm just one super-super happy customer! If he had the "round up" option at checkout, I would have rounded up from $79 to $100!

Amazing, thank you very much for the high praise! Even more great stuff still to come.
XenForo's history in syncing with Wordpress is littered with bugs galore so I've never been confident enough to hook it up with Wordpress... Until now. Although this is a young add-on, I've been very impressed with its capabilities and most importantly, how solid and stable it is.

I'm further stoked to see its e-commerce capabilities emerge, esp. robust integration with MemberPress on Wordpress. It makes it easy to have premium subscription forums/usergroups.

Am really looking forward to watching this baby grow. Props, Mangini!

Thank you for the very kind review! The biggest feature of the plugin is in fact its stability, and with it will come anything we want. Big things coming soon. :)
So far, so good! After two disappointing experiences with other XenForo/Wordpress bridge add ons, this looks great - a very efficient add on.
