Community Bridge links up your Minecraft player accounts to their corresponding website/forum/CMS accounts. It uses the web application's groups to assign players to permissions groups and stores various bits of information about the player in the forum's database.

Please use the issue system to submit bug reports, feature/enhancement requests and support requests.

UUIDs Most of the programming is done. Lots and lots and lots of testing to do, however.

    Minotar works for pulling avatars, you don't need to have CommunityBridge do it. :)

    @janjanjan11111: Go: Not sure what it would mean to "show a gravatar". Gravatars are pulled from the Gravatar site by forum applications. If you mean "show an avatar" as in "show the minecraft player's skin as the web application's avatar" that feature has been requested but has not be implemented yet.

    You'll need to determine how Buddypress stores its group information and custom profile fields so that you can configure CommunityBridge accordingly.

    How do you show gravatar on mysql and buddypress groups and tracking?

    @janjanjan11111: Go

    This plugin only write informations directly on mysql tables and databases, configurable on config.yml. You only need to make a way to show this info on you site... Here, on documentation, the owner only show examples, but can be used in any plataform!

    Would it be possible for you to add something like preferential hierarchy?

    IE, if someone is a higher rank in-game than they are on the forums, CB prefers their in-game rank and allows them to keep it, but if they rank up on the forums later, they still get promoted in-game?

    @SXRWahrheit: Go: I want to come up with an easy way for a player to fill in his UUID in the forum's custom profile field. Probably a prerequisite feature is the "authentication" feature where a player can do something like: /cblogin <forum-username> <forum-password> to confirm their identity. The UUID part would be trivial after that. :)

    @icheesy: Go: It'd depend on your synchronization direction and which groups you included in the mappings on each server. Each server would be unaware of the each one would synchronize as if the other didn't exist. The naive settings (two way, and all groups in the mapping on both servers) would end up with a player's group list being the same on both servers eventually... depending on when the group list changes and which servers they log into. ...That's a long way of saying "It'll work, but depending on what your goals are, it might take some fine-tuning on the configuration."

    Can this work with multiple servers? So if a player is ranked Gold on server1 and VIP on server2, would they be in both groups on my forum (myBB)?

    Looking for fun?
