Phpbb bridge

Post by robato » Wed Apr 17, 2013 9:26 pm

I installed the extension phpbb bridge in order to integrate phpbb forum in my Joomla site (http://www.ornskoldsvikshusbilsklubb.se/forum), but I have a problem when I log in and try to access the forum. I get an error message saying: Firefox has detected that the server redirects the request on this site in a way that prevents the completion.
If I use IE I can't access the site at all, it just keeps loading for along and after a while I get a message: This page cannot be displayed.

I can access the integrated forum if I don't log in to the forum.

It seems to me that Joomla and Phpbb are redirecting to each other but I have no idea how to solve it, any ideas?

I have a little update, the problem only occurs when I register through phpbb3. If I first register through Joomla I don't get this problem. I would guess that there's som problem in the .htaccess file so I submit and hope that someone can help me find out what's wrong.

Code in .htaccess
