Identical to this Mod here, but now for the Vbulletin 3.8 line.
DOES NOT WORK FOR Vbulletin 4.x

This version probably no longer works for Wordpress 3.x. I have started developing this product over and have released the NEW version here:

http://www.lampwrights.com/showthread.php?t=41




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 2.7.
  • DOES work for Vbulletin 3.7.
  • Does work for vBulletin 3.8.
Limitations:
  • Does not work for 4.x. Why? Because VB 4.x does not work for me. If they ever make that product worth a shit, I might support it.
  • 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.
  • Does not work with XMLRPC.
  • 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:


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

    And uncomment the last line, and change the path to your forums path:


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

Common Mistakes When Installing:
  • Using two different host names causes problems. If your forum URL contains www.yourdomain.com, then your wordpress blog URL MUST contain the www. part of 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 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.
UPDATES:

Changelog is included in download, here is the most recent changes:

3/09/2009
  • Added code to process scheduled posts
  • Addressed code where links and images would not show up properly in VB
  • Added new table called vb_forumid for scheduled posts
  • Reduced redundant calls when dealing with forum excerpts

Still having the same problem of the userid not being generated. I looked in the readme instructions and I noticed that section was if I wanted to replace the Wordpress commenting system with vB comments. I do not want to do this. First off, I dont sync my blog posts with vB forum posts, just the users.

And, all I want to do on the Wordpress side, within the Wordpress comments is have the user avatar show up, as well as link to their profile pages. Is this possible?

Right now this is all I dump in, and it doesnt generate a user id:

Guys I spend 2 weeks to integrate wordpress with vbulletin with no success!

I'm running a Turkish Forum Platform.

When I post something while the bridge is on, the post content corrupts in vbulletin.

Images, charachters like ş,,,,ı are not shown properly.

Please help me aut if I did pass something:

-I tried to post while the UTF8 option was on and out,
-It was told that maybe the installation of wordpress itself was causing this so I did it with the official setup of wordpress = same old same !

neither the UFT8 changing was succesfull nor installing the offical wordpress installation.

What can I do to solve this problem ?

I got around this by turning on Excerpt Forum Post? and setting Characters In Exceprt: to 2000.

This may also help laztrix.

I need a way to use existing wordpress userbase, and have them able to log into vbulletin using it. New registers can register to wordpress.

This doesn't work for me either. Running vB 3.8 with WP 2.7.1, and all it does is go to a blank white page after I click the Publish button in WP and does not post to vB from WP..

Okay, I am getting a few bugs which I'd just like to report:

- In the "edit post" and "edit page" sections, the page/post authors have wrong names. However, in the post/page editing screen itself, the author names are displayed correctly.
- I am getting the same problem with parsing links as above, displaying http://ahref>forum for example.
- The media (flash) upload system doesn't work for me, it just keeps loading it infinitely.

Same issues here as well. Only just noticed the media upload not working - you can escape out of it by pressing escape a few times. Vbridge III from the previous release still works bar incorrect dates in the wordpress comment field so I have been using that in the meantime.

I would like to add that the aforementioned problem with custom permalinks is solved for normal categories in the latest version, but it still send a link with /%postname%/ when using subcats.

How do you turn off the user page completely for all users in wordpress so that they will not go at all to wp-admin/ at all and if they do type that then they automatically go directly to the profile page in the forum?


Also how do you make the comment box only to show up for vbulletin users (or subscribers) only?

The uploads do not work for me as well. Great plug in over all. Good job
