I am looking to synchronize members of different SMF forums. I remember that SMF-Joomla bridge allowed of synchronizing members from many forums and sites. As our SMF forums have upgraded to 2.1.2, can we use SMF2WPBridge to fulfil the task of integrating the member base of two or three SMF forums?

What you are asking for is to merge 2 forums. Have a look at this script by @shawnb61. It will do the job nicely.

No, we need them separate. Only the members should be synchronized, so that the members of SMF1 could login to SMF2, and vice versa. The idea is to use WordPress or phpBB3 as db broker, clearinghouse, or interchange station, because the only available bridges that are compatible with SMF 2.1.2 seem to be these two. Of course, we could export the members table of SMF1 and import it into SMF2 db, but I want something automatic to do the job.

That would involve quite some custom coding. You can post a request at the Help Wanted (not for support) board for this.

Thank you for the suggestions! Seems that the available bridges to WP, Joomla, and phpBB3 are obsolete and will not fit to the task.

Probably only @vbgamer45 can tell

Multiple Forum Mod would probably do the trick but, unfortunately, it is not being updated 13 years now.

Will check the solution of smfhacks and use 1 members tables for different forums.
