[Locked][Beta] Account Link mod for phpBB3

This topic is very much out of date. Future updates will be announced as individual topics.

MOD Title: Linked Accounts
MOD Description: Link accounts so that users can switch between them
MOD Version: 0.7.3
Tested with: phpBB3 3.0.4

MOD Download: Here
phpBB.com Support topic: Account Links

This mod is intended for RP forums, but works for any forum that allows a user to have multiple accounts. It allows a user to link all of his accounts and switch between them without logging out.

The whole thing is designed as a module to minimize changes to the core... only two single line additions to the the core code and one line placed anywhere in a template file are needed to add the Account Switch box to any page.

I'd really like to download this mod but the attachment link doesn't appear to be working. Is it no longer available?

Re: [Beta] Account Link mod for phpBB3

Odd... I guess I lost the file in the recent remodel of the site... The download links have been updated to the new sourceforge.net links, now. Also, around the first of the year, I'll be packaging up a new version that has some new features and a couple bug fixes.
Each of us dreams. In mine, I see my home--Lost to me, perhaps for all time. In His, the home He desired was made whole and real. Yet, you tell me we are the same?

It cannot be.
