IPBWI (Invision Power Board Website Integration) allows you to create PHP applications that can interact with Invision Power Board (IPB). IPBWI contains more than 130 functions within a single class that can be used to simulate nearly all of the functions with Invision Power Board.

IPBWI is based upon the already existent IPB SDK class and picks up on the function that the project used to provide. The latest versions of Invision Power Board are no longer supported by IPB SDK and therefore IPBWI must be used.

IPBWI offers a non-free, encoded plugin for WordPress which allows single sign on and community integration features out of the box.

Help and Support[edit]

All features are documented in project's manual. To get an overview how powerful the API is, on official homepage are many live-examples created which allow reading of their sourcecode to use it for own projects. Free support is also given via forum. Official support is given in English and German.


IPBWI has taken over development of IPB SDK and continues to offer revisions to the code to work with current version of Invision Power Board.
