Can I connect SMF and Joomla 3?
The official SMF-Joomla bridge was discontinued in July of 2007, due to license restrictions with Joomla’s implementation of the GPL. There is no officially supported SMF-Joomla bridge at this time. The official bridge was distributed under the SMF license, which forbids redistribution.
However, if you wish to integrate SMF and Joomla, there are un-official bridge named Jfusion.
JFusion is a free GPL plugin for the award winning Content Management System (CMS) Joomla. JFusion provides universal user integration, by extending the Joomla 1.5.x – 2.5.x and with jfusion 2.x also Joomla 3.x user authentication framework without any core hacks.
