I want to comply with Coppa (age limit 13). I have Wordpress installed, yet there are no plugins available to comply or even edit age restriction upon registration. Only phpbb has an option for this. Can I combine phpbb with wordpress? How?

Thank you for your question. Although you can have multiple programs such as WordPress and phpBB as different parts of your site, they do not combine functions or work by intertwining. This means that the Coppa feature in phpBB will not function in WordPress. The Coppa isssue has been brought up in the WordPress forums many times over the years and so far there seems to have been no software written to cover this.

Kindest Regards,
