phpBB integration

03 Jul, 2018 11:16

I am the running the danish forum, astronet
astronet is based on phpBB.

Many of astronet’s users are using astrobin, and I would like to start using astrobin’s API, to display astronet users most recent astrobin images.

So before I start, I would like to hear if anyone here know of or have made a mod/extension to phpBB, that interfaces with astrobin’s REST API?

Just wanted to let you know, that I have made some php and sql coding myself.

On my forum's main page,, my forum users, that have entered their AstroBin id, will have their latest pictures shown.

So far, only two users have added their AstroBin userid to their profile settings, it's quite new on the forum. I hope that more will join.

Hi Rudi, nice job!

Only a problem tho: hot-linking AstroBin images is not allowed by the terms of service. Could you please change the links so that they point to the AstroBin page instead of the bare image?

Yes, off course. Sorry for that.

Im not sure, that I know what you mean?
Can you please show an example.

After a good nights sleep, I think I know what you mean:

It’s ok that I display images, thumbnail, medium size or full size. But when making a clickable url, it should link to the astrobin page and not directly to the full image?

So in stead of this link:

I should link to:

Did I get that right?

Yes that’s what I mean. Thanks in advance!

Ok. I’ll fix it soon. Will let you know heee when done.

Salvatore, I have updated now, please let me know if it violates any terms of service, and I will correct it ;-)

Hi Rudi,
I still see the same as before. If I go to and click an image, I'm redirected to the image as served from the CDN, and not the AstroBin page with the technical details, comments, etc.
