By the final version I hope to use a modRewrite schema to work around this.

Check your PM Michael Morris. I may be able to assist.

I'm a novice to this. But find it great that you are creating this for us. As I was turned on to Joomla! the other day and I like the way it functions.

I don't understand what you mean by this, and feel free to make fun of me for it...

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.
What exactly does it take to create either one of those?

Anyway this mod will work on my setup?

A symbolic link is exactly like a windows shortcut icon on the desktop that points to a file or folder elsewhere. The command is


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

For my dev site the command to link the cpstyles was


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

The final release version will - part of the installer will be the setup of the paths between Joomla and vbulletin. Expect to see that within 3 weeks or so.

Would you be able to provide me with the link ? I like to see how the front page layout look using the vb templates. Thanks

Sorry it was on a local host. It skinned Joomla perfectly with my vbulletin skin but there are a few problems i feel still with the bridge.

My default Joomla had a login module on the front page that wouldn't take with my vbulletin username and password. However using the vbulletin one logs me into both systems (minor but worth remembering how the bridge is working).

Also i found some components just error out. MosDirectory for instance installed fine but mysql error'd when trying to add an entry (although removing the bridge it then performed as expected).

Seems a great start and will certainly bring a great deal to the vbulletin community. Not a huge fan of Joomla myself as i find the interface confusing but its certainly an extremely powerful system that could add huge benefits to vbulletin boards.

Kudos to the developer with his beta bridge and the clear instructions he laid down to install. I'll be keeping a close eye on this one.

exciting. looking forward to this developing. would nominate mod of the century and click a donate button if this develops into somthing simple that us everyday board owners could use and maintain.

i would also like a sneek peak once sombody gets 1 running. :)

I have to tell you, I love Joomla and have learned to love vBulletin over the past year. You ROCK for making this mod as it's one of the most needed and useful in my opinion. If you really put some time into this, you could easily make some money off of it and/or build some awesome communities around it.

pete_brady 27 Apr 2007 00:15

looking forward to this... been working on joomla-ing up my site & having access to vb stuff would be a big plus....

nanaimobar 27 Apr 2007 00:18

Looks very promising, Michael. Congratulations.

I use Joomla, with iJoomla Magazine mod, as my main web site face and use vBulletin for all the grunt and security work so I am quite interested in seeing a demo site running using your bridge.

Combining the two as you have is quite a gift to the vBulletin community. Thanks.:up:

Will definitely download your bridge when it is ready for production environments.

Michael Morris 27 Apr 2007 01:27

Just noticed the following and am posting notice in the original post.

Warning: Joomla complains about register globals emulation being on (this is the default setting). It is cited as a security risk. You MUST leave this setting on for this hack to work - however the "security risk" is non-existent as vbulletin will clean out the globals array during it's initialization.

This also means that any component or module for Joomla that requires Register Globals emulation to be turned on WILL NOT WORK! (most do not though - developers have been moving away from register globals for awhile now).

Tonight's task list is to tighten the template integration with Joomla and make some progress on mod_vJoomlaRecentThreads.

Wow, can't wait until this is fully released...

WHat about a module for having new articles create threads in vB?

tuanluu 27 Apr 2007 03:37

Me too I will give it a try

Everytime I have to work in joomla template, I wish it was the joomla template system. Please let us know if you need funds or a test platform or anything, I really want to see this thru to fruition.
