Michael, I hope you know that you will become a legend in the joomla/vbulletin communities when this is final! :)

Hi, great hack! Probably one of the most wanted ever. I have one problem however so far (Installing this at the moment).

"Either create a symbolic link for images, clientscript and cpstyles in the site root, or copy the contents of those folders to the site root."

How do i create a symbolic link? Where do i place it? What does it do?
As for the other option: My site is www.teamqg.com, so if i place the images content in the root, will it look like this: www.teamqg.com/misc and www.teamqg.com/smilies, since i'm using a skin where the images folder consists out of multiple folders, where one is the default vbulletin one, with misc, buttons, etc.

And will the clientscript content be placed between the other files? Or: www.teamqg.com/clientscript?

One last thing: Does it have to be www.teamqg.com/forum? Since my vBulletin is located at www.teamqg.com/qg...

Thanks in advance,

Hans.

PS: Sorry for all the asking, but i'm kinda noob...

I'm willing to beta test it but still to cautious about the error handeling.

PRIVACY NOTICE: This module contains an error handler that will attempt to email [email protected] with a stack trace of the error. The purpose of this is to gather as much information as possible for debugging - a complete stack trace often includes far more information than the error lines that PHP normally displays. When this handler is triggered it also prints out the information it mailed to me on the screen. Any Information that is included as arguments could be passed as part of this stack trace, this can include potentially sensitive information such as database passwords if a database handling class encounters an error. If you wish to test this module and do not wish to have it emailing me with this data comment out line 106 in the file globals.php in the zip package.

This error handler will be removed when the product reaches final.

I did everything it said, replaced all the 'forum' in the files with 'qg', but i get this error:

Database error in vBulletin 3.6.7:

Probably because in your config.php file you have the userid number 1 non changeable

AK47 Nemesis 20 May 2007 20:55

That didn't work :(

Some more details of my setup:
www.teamqg.com = Joomla
www.teamqg.com/qg = vBulletin
vBulletin is in the same database as Joomla, but vBulletin doesn't have a prefix, while Joomla has.
vBulletin had to be located at /forum, which is /qg for me, so i changed all the files which contained /forum to /qg. It might be the vBulletin product which causes the error.

Odd that it would miss that query. In the query manager run (off the top of my head)


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

What this field is for joomla to keep track of which users it has copied (it saves a query on each page load) from vbulletin's user table.

That works, but now if i go to my forums homepage it doesn't show anything (vBAdvanced). When i disable the product it shows everything again.

Michael Morris 22 May 2007 12:14

That's odd.

Anyway, I'll be purchasing my own vbulletin license and launching vjoomla.com this weekend to both demo this addon and give more comprehensive support than can be done in a single thread. (I can post code here since I'm listed as technical advisor for 4 different licensed vb sites - but they aren't mine own ).

Just to let you know that this will be a very good package, keep up the good work. Can't believe no one did that before. Thanks Michael for the time invest in this project :)

BTW, any plan to make it compatible with the Joomla CB ?

Michael Morris 23 May 2007 22:35

I have rechristened this project "Joomla for vBulletin" which is more descriptive and added the logo, however the shorter "vJoomla" nickname will continue to be used. This product has moved beyond being a mere bridge and though it is largely compatible with Joomla it needs to be regarded, for the most part as it's own branch.

The goal however is as Joomla 1.5 allows for more powerful manipulation of the core functionality without hacking the code (and therefore the diversion) from standard Joomla can be reduced. The goal of this project will remain staying as close to Joomla as possible without compromising vBulletin code at all and only compromising Joomla code when absolutely necessary.

Over the weekend I will be launching the vJoomla website. In addition to providing support for vJoomla I will be providing some crossover help for coders interested in coding modules and components for Joomla in general and vJoomla in particular. This includes a detailed mapping out of exactly what I did to Joomla's standard code and why.

This project will be managed and licensed subject to the same terms of it's parent - the Gnu Public License.

This is really good news.

It seems that bbPixel has dissapeared.

Their page is down now, which is entirely dissapointing considering we've just paid the $20 for the product about a month ago...

I'm very interested in this, even more so now...

If I had the ability to install a test board for our page (I'm not the admin with the say-so powers) I'd help test this...perhaps I can work on getting that done...
