following code place earlier plus example of code for the curl call in php


this file need to to be placed in the forum directory of vbulletin
(make sure it is in this directory to initialise vbulletin stuff ......)

no change done from previous poster

you can include the code below in one php page. call it whatever you want

i call it great_stuff_dude.php

thus i need to MAKE sure that the name of the page is correctly entered
in the define below


do the same in the code below
# Add a user to vBulletin (offline)

function qpc_post($varname)
return trim(stripslashes((get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? $_POST[$varname] : addslashes($_POST[$varname])));



$userdm = new vB_DataManager_User($vbulletin, ERRTYPE_ARRAY);

$userdm->set('username', qpc_post('username'));
$userdm->set('email', qpc_post('email'));
$userdm->set('password', qpc_post('password'));
$userdm->set('ipaddress', qpc_post('ipaddress'));
$userdm->set('referrerid', qpc_post('referrername'));
$userdm->set('timezoneoffset', qpc_post('timezoneoffset'));
$userdm->set_bitfield('options', 'adminemail', intval(qpc_post('adminemail')));
$userdm->set_bitfield('options', 'showemail', intval(qpc_post('showemail')));

$dst_setting = intval(qpc_post('dst'));
switch ($dst_setting)
case 0:
case 1:
$userdm->set_bitfield('options', 'dstonoff', $dst_setting);
case 2:
$userdm->set_bitfield('options', 'dstauto', 1);

#If there are errors (eMail not set, eMail banned, Username taken, etc.) you can check for errors using
if (count($userdm->errors)) {
for($i=0; $i<count($userdm->errors); $i++) {
print "ERROR{$i}:{$userdm->errors[$i]}\n";
} else {
# If everything is OK
$newuserid = $userdm->save();
print "vbuserid:$newuserid\n";


You can have the following code on server running PHP WHEREVER YOU WANT. it does not need to be on the same domain as long as you have the curl compiled

in that script (again call it whatever you want it does not matter)

you call the url of your web server and path to go to the page GREAT_STUFF_DUDE.php

you can of course include it in the login code of your CMS to create profiles in both systems in one step.



$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, "username=keith_mayass&[email protected]_worrys.com&password=up_yours&usergr oupid=2&");
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
$store = curl_exec ($ch);
$content = curl_exec ($ch); # This returns HTML
curl_close ($ch);


you can of course pass as may variables as you want if you have them available in your CMS to complete the profile.

Any update on this? I managed to add a user to the Vb database w/ just a couple simply mysql calls. But.... the password encryption was wrong ( i'm assuming ) it wouldn't allow the user to login. BUT if the user went through the lost password function, it would allow them to. Could someone help me w/ the command to encrypt the password w/ salt or whatever its using to add it into my database w/out having to hook anything from vb?

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'm looking for something exactly like that! Anyone know how I would accomplish this? :banana:

I've managed to automatically add users to vBulletin via our website which is done in ASP. The only issue I'm having is that a user cannot 'SAVE' their signature (strange). Everything else works great...

Anyone have any ideas why?


Connector 15 May 2006 15:28

Why you have make it in ASP and not php ?

How would a new user be added without using curl?



bradsears 08 Jun 2006 21:51

Hi. I'd like to be able to send the registration email after the user registers. How do I do this. Thanks in advance.

-- edit --

I answered this one myself

$activateid = build_user_activation_id($newuserid, 2, 0);
vbmail($email, $subject, $message, true);

asphix 21 Jun 2006 19:50

thanks a million for this script cause I really needed it
it works like a charm

bradsears 21 Jun 2006 19:53

I'd really like to be able to set the cookie and log the user in after they are instantly registered. Any ideas?

scorinaldi 10 Jul 2006 07:48

i agree wtih bradsears. can anyone shed some light on how to automatically log in a user?

do we just set the cookies and that's it?

workRelated 27 Jul 2006 02:13

I recently added a field to the user profile (gender)
I also renamed location to country
I would like to be able to automatically set these fields similarly to the other fields in the above example. Im unclear as to how this would be possible.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You don't have to use CURL to do it, but you have to include globals.php in your script root if you want to create the user from within a function or method.

You also have to remember to retrieve the global vbulletin variable to pass into the datamanager class.

I spent the last few hours working that out, hopefully it'll help someone else!
