    We are running amember 1, expressionengine, and phpbb, it's all working fine, but we need to allow access to phpbb for additional 'sub' users who get added by existing users, the sub users are added through some custom code.

    Is there a hook that I can trigger when a new sub user is added, or an API call that I can make to do this?

    You just need to configure integration between phpbb and subuser product (associate aMmeber product with user group in phpbb). You can do it at
    aMember CP -> Protect Content -> Integration

    Thanks for replying.

    We are using amember v1, I don't think there is a section at aMember CP -> Protect Content -> Integration

    Also the submembers are created on a custom form using custom code, so it doesn't trigger anything in EE or amember, unless I misunderstand?

    aMember v1 is quite outdated software (current version is 5.1). I am afraid this version has not necessary feature.

    Yes, we will upgrade soon, but in the meantime is there a hook or API that I can use to create this access?

    many thanks.

    No, version 1 has not such hook. You can incorporate your code directly to core.

    Apologies, it is not amember 1, it is amember 3.1.9PRO! I was thinking of the Expression Engine version that we are using.

    Can you provide any extra information as to how I proceed for this version?
