Basic functionalities don't work as expected. Syncing existing WP users with XF users isn't integrated, and the basic features don't work out of the box. I would consider this app as an alpha release, rather than a 'stable' version. Their refund policy is also disappointing, but hey, they can keep my $79, but I felt it's great to let other people know about the downsides of this alpha plugin.
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.
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.
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!
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!
