If you use MemberMouse for your WordPress membership website, wpForo can be a great solution if you want to have a forum for your members.

The integration of MemberMouse and wpForo is pretty straightforward.

These two plugins use some of WordPress database data and therefore the integration comes naturally.

But even so, some changes are needed in order to have a full integration.

  if(!isset($_GET["member_id"]) || empty($_GET["member_id"]))

// wp core functionality
  $absPath = dirname(__FILE__);
  $realPath = realpath($absPath . '/./');
  $fPath = explode("wp-content",$realPath);
  define('WP_USE_THEMES', false);

// get member ID
  $memberId = $_GET["member_id"];

global $wpdb;

// get user nicename
  $user_nicename = $wpdb->get_var("SELECT user_nicename FROM wp_users WHERE ID = '$memberId'");

// if first name and last name are updated from MM account, they are only updated in MM member data table; we need to update them in wp foro too
  $user_first_name = $wpdb->get_var("SELECT first_name FROM mm_user_data WHERE wp_user_id = '$memberId'");
  $user_last_name = $wpdb->get_var("SELECT last_name FROM mm_user_data WHERE wp_user_id = '$memberId'");

//prepare display name for wp foro
  $user_display_name = $user_first_name.' '.$user_last_name;

echo $user_display_name;

// get serialized data from wp_usermeta table where the nicename it's not updated
  $wpf_member_obj = $wpdb->get_var("SELECT meta_value FROM wp_usermeta WHERE user_id = '$memberId' AND meta_key = '_wpf_member_obj'");

$wpf_member_obj = unserialize($wpf_member_obj);


// update all values in unserialized 
  $wpf_member_obj["user_nicename"] =$user_nicename;

// serialize data and update it in the database
  $wpf_member_obj = serialize($wpf_member_obj);

  'meta_value' => $wpf_member_obj 
  array( 'user_id' => $memberId,'meta_key' => '_wpf_member_obj' ), 
  array( '%d','%s'  ) 

// change the display name in wp_users , if it was changed in MM

  'display_name' => $user_display_name 
  array( 'ID' => $memberId ), 
  array( '%d'  ) 

The above code updates wpForo profile display name and profile links for the member.

It will be triggered by a MemberMouse Push Notification as I will explain below.

b. Then add the file to your theme folder (https://yourdomain.com/wp-content/themes/your-child-theme-folder).

Obviously your child theme folder directory probably won’t be named “your-child-theme-folder”. 🙂

IMPORTANT: I highly recommend that you first create a child theme, or use the My Custom Functions WordPress plugin whenever you add custom code to your theme files. Otherwise, any time you update your theme your changes will get wiped out!

Step 2 – Create a MemberMouse Push Notification

After the PHP file is created and uploaded to FTP, we will need a way to TRIGGER the code right after the user account details are updated.

And for this we will create a MemberMouse Push Notification.

a. Log in your WordPress dashboard and go to MemberMouse > Developer Tools.
