Identical to this Mod here, but now for the Vbulletin 3.8 line.
DOES NOT WORK FOR Vbulletin 4.x

This version probably no longer works for Wordpress 3.x. I have started developing this product over and have released the NEW version here:

http://www.lampwrights.com/showthread.php?t=41




This mod bridges your Vbulletin users over to Wordpress. You can also use Vbulletin as your comment engine instead of the spammy one built into Wordpress. You can display the comments inline in your post. You need not use the comment feature, if your only interested in sharing users.

You can map your Vbulletin Usergroups to Wordpress Usergroups and those users will then be recognized as registered Wordpress users.

For example, user "Joe" registers at your forum and logs in. Joe then clicks on your Wordpress page. Joe is instantly added to the Wordpress user base with the permissions you set for his usergroup. In otherwords, if a user comes over belonging to the "Registered User" group, you can select that he is placed in the Wordpress "Subscriber" usergroup.

If you change a users group from vbulletin, it will automatically change in Wordpress.

Requirements:
  • DOES NOT and WILL NEVER support Wordpress MU.
  • Wordpress and Vbulletin scripts must reside on the same physical server.
  • Wordpress and Vbulletin must use the same domain name.
  • Stable Wordpress Version greater than or equal to 2.7.
  • DOES work for Vbulletin 3.7.
  • Does work for vBulletin 3.8.
Limitations:
  • Does not work for 4.x. Why? Because VB 4.x does not work for me. If they ever make that product worth a shit, I might support it.
  • Please don't ask if it works for any BETA versions of Vbulletin. I do not know and will not convert this to the latest version of VB (whatever it is at the time you are reading this) until the version is released as non-beta.
  • Does not work with XMLRPC.
  • Chances are, this will not work when VB and Wordpress are located in different sub domains. I.E. forum.yoursite.com - blog.yoursite.com. Cookie issue.
  • I did the best I could in determining your forums file path with the script. There may be certain script setups that cannot find the file path properly, in which case you may get errors that the script cannot find or open /config.php. If this is the case, please HARDCODE your ABSOLUTE path to the forum in vbridge.php.

    To do this find:


    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

    And uncomment the last line, and change the path to your forums path:


    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Common Mistakes When Installing:
  • Using two different host names causes problems. If your forum URL contains www.yourdomain.com, then your wordpress blog URL MUST contain the www. part of www.yourdomain.com also. This goes for any other host name. Browsers are finnecky when it comes to cookies (as they should be).
  • Editors generally EDIT, not write. In Wordpress, editors don't show up in the post author drop down. This has nothing to do with this plugin, that is Wordpress code.
  • Make sure you DO NOT create a subdirectory for this plugin in the wp-content/plugins directory. Just upload it directly there..
  • If you do not map users before you turn auto-integrate on, the plugin has no idea whether your allowed into the dashboard.
  • If you all of a sudden can't login to the dashboard, see the above two common mistakes.
  • FOLLOW the directions and make a test post first. Being in a rush and not testing will most likely turn out bad for you.
UPDATES:

Changelog is included in download, here is the most recent changes:

3/09/2009
  • Added code to process scheduled posts
  • Addressed code where links and images would not show up properly in VB
  • Added new table called vb_forumid for scheduled posts
  • Reduced redundant calls when dealing with forum excerpts

Here's how I fixed the author problem.

Every time I give one of my VB users "author' status, I turn off integration and create a user in the old WP user system with the same username as the username he has in VB. Then I turn integration back on. From that point on when that user creates a post the correct username shows up. And, at that point that username is on the author list too. So, I can assign his name to any post that needs it. However, I haven't needed to fix it once.

So far it's working great.

Does anyone know how you could grab the latest discussions on the forum and add them to a widget on Wordpress?

Sure simple, just use RSS.

I do it on my WP + VB setup and it works great.

www.tdpri.com you'll see the recent posts in the tan box on the right.

I just decided to reinstall it (used to make it work on my other site).

but when I activate the plugin I get a white page, and I can't access anything anymore. Even the index page gives me a white page till I delete the plugin file.

Is there a way to just replace the whole comment section with the forum? For instance instead of showing the comment section underneath it, it just shows a mini version of your forum (just the posts parts) with all the forum buttons (post reply, quick reply, etc.)...

I installed, test post, worked correctly. Turned bridge on and when I tried to access the wordpress admin account it told me I don't have access privileges. So I renamed the plug in via FTP, still no access, I deleted the plug in, still not access!

I cannot access my wordpress admin account. How do I gain access???

HELP!

I also have a Problem with the bridge since yesterday.

First it Works finde. I didn't have a problem since yesterday. I did nothig before, I only want to edit a article. But when I want to edit, wordpress show me a white page. Only Quick Edit works. When I turn the plugin off, then I can edit normal.

All other section (like links, to create a article) works fine. Only the edit function und the options-permalink.php doesn't work. Has anyone an idea how I can fix this?

I just installed this plugin and I'm having the same issue. My posts won't go to the forum, I've triple checked the settings and played with various configurations in the vbridge settings menu to no avail...

Just to clarify, I should have vB and WP on separate databases within the domain correct?
vB is on DB_01 and WP is on DB_02

This is how I make correct authors show up, however I only have 2 or so people posting anything that displays so it might not be ideal.


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and it should make the correct name show up with a link to their profile. I don't recall if I changed anything in the bridge files themselves, but I copied portions of the comment code and applied it elsewhere. Just paste this code whever you want the author's (thread starter's) name to show up.

Is there a way to just replace the whole comment section with the forum? For instance instead of showing the comment section underneath it, it just shows a mini version of your forum (just the posts parts) with all the forum buttons (post reply, quick reply, etc.)...
I just completely skipped the comment page altogether and make any links pointing towards comments to direct to

which I've also modified to show the number of replies to the thread as if they were comments.

I don't know... I use both on the same database. And this works. Perhaps you test it on the same database. When you check the settings it should work. So test it when both (vb and wp) are on the same database.

Hello. I use WP → VB Bridge at casavladi.ru. (Excuse me, only russian language).

Wordpress and vBulletin versions is latest: WP 2.8.4 & VB 3.8.4. Complete vBridge Plugin has version 4.01.13.

I have a problem: I have a guestbook at my site. It looks like WP Page with hundreds of comments, sorted alfabetically. I use "Paged Coments" plugin for paging guestbook pages. (homepage of plugin here).

When I try to activate this paging plugin, I see this error:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

How I can use pages in my guestbook wordpress comments?

Thank you for great plugin.
