yes I also cannot get the script above to work.. do I need to initialize $vbulletin via a constructor?

The script works as long as you use it on a vbulletin-powered page.

What would be necessary to use the user data-manager from outside a vbulletin-powered page?

Andreas 03 Nov 2005 23:11

The vBulletin backend, which makes it a vBulletin powered page :)

I finally got a working script to add a user to vB offline. I maintain a separate Membership System. When a user registers in this separate system, an account is automatically created for them in vB.

When they register (again, this is in my own Member System -- on a different domain), I collect those variables that I need specifically (and minimally) to create an account in vB.

I then cURL those variables to a custom script (called bb_add_user.php) which resides in the root folder of the forum. The results of bb_add_user.php are printed, which are then collected in the result of the cURL. If there are errors, the Membership System takes appropriate action. If successul, then I grab the vbuserid from the cURL result and go about my business.

Although I am still proving this system on a development server, my goal will be to change all of the 'register.php' links on vBulletin and point them to the register script on my Membership System.

Here is the bb_add_user.php code.

You shouldn't use CURL, as vBulletin data managers have data verifiers of their own. Just supply the raw values...

I am not sure what you mean by supplying the raw values...that is pretty much what I am doing with cURL. What would be another way of supplying the values?

Wayne Luke 04 Nov 2005 00:11

Can anyone write a proof of concept on how this would be done? I mean a complete file that would accept POST values from another page, instantiate the manager and create the user?

akanevsky 04 Nov 2005 00:53

Of course. Except the official vB documentation provides all the information of this matter... At least about using GPC for POST values....

i got a script working that does the same thing, and i noticed one thing..... that script must be in the same directory as global.php

Uhmm...incorrect. Try this piece from Dark Visor here about outside of vBulletin pages -> Using vBulletin-powered scripts outside vBulletin Directory.

Geez, that was a long time ago and I have taken a completely different approach to it.

I do have my own way of creating a vB account from an external site. In fact, I just went live with it today.

forum.bodybuilding.com

If you click the register link, you will be redirected to a register script on a different site (my.bodybuilding.com -- different subdomain). There you enter your user information and submit. A new user is created in my Membership System, then the user is created in vBulletin.

The register, login/logoff, activation, recover lost password, edit email & password, etc, are are handled in my separate Membership System, pushing the results to vBulletin.

I am in the process of writing a user signup integration script. My forum runs on a separate server from my main site. I am going to need to write hooks in quite a few places. I've compiled a list of the spots where I will need to have remote vB hooks.

Initial user signup:
Add the user, put them in the email confirmation group. (my site sends a confirmation email).

Confirmation:
When the user clicks the link in the confirmation email.

Password and email changes:
When the user wants to change their email or password.

This will all need to be done from a remote server so I too will most likely be using cURL. Obviously I want to keep these changes in sync. It isn't fully clear to me if it would be easier to write a plugin with change password/email hooks that will update my system or if I should just deny these changes from the vBulletin side and change the permission denied template to point to the proper place on my site.

Once I've hammered through the few remaining issues, I will post my results and code here.

Woops, just read your post and you seem to be describing everything I just mentioned. Care to give the rest of an idea of how long it took?

Could someone put basic code how to do this ?
