Hi,

I am running a phpBB forum and a WordPress blog on the same site. Is there any way to display phpBB login status in wordpress, as a widget or even in the theme?

Sadly, WP-United is probably the easiest method of doing this. However, you do get the added benefits of letting phpBB users comment on your Wordpress articles and otherwise sharing one unified users database!
