Integrating phpbb in a website based on CodeIgniter

I have noticed that at the community forums of CodeIgniter there are a lot of questions on integrating phpbb in a code ignited web site. However there is one library posted in the forums – here,  but it didn’t fulfill my needs. Actually the only thing that was usefull for me is the login part, e.g. the constructor. It is pretty much the same so here I should thank Tomaž Muraus for that lead. My additions to it are the rest usefull functions. So I gave it a try and created a very simple library for CodeIgniter that manages remote login, remote user add, remote user edit (password change) and remote user delete. I will post it here and will cut it a little because the current state has some additional programming related to the project I did it for.

Here it is:

  • I put this on the top of tha page as javascript code:
