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:

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

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

and it should make the correct name show up with a link to their profile. I don't recall if I changed anything in the bridge files themselves, but I copied portions of the comment code and applied it elsewhere. Just paste this code whever you want the author's (thread starter's) name to show up.



I just completely skipped the comment page altogether and make any links pointing towards comments to direct to

which I've also modified to show the number of replies to the thread as if they were comments.
Something you could share?

I have used this and it works.

The only thing left I guess is the smileys are not working in WP.

Hello,

take a look at my previous answer about avatar & vBbridge here.

Of course it was for a former version of the bridge and some modifications have to be made to make it work, for example the query to look for into vbbridge.php is now :

How can we fix the isssue where this plugin changes the authors of wordpress posts? For example in my wordpress blog (v.2.8.4) when I turn auto integration "ON" the wordpress post authors are changed to vb users that were not set in wordpress as the actual post authors.

Complete Wordpress/Vbulletin Bridge - Share Users And Postings

I am stuck completing the installation process. I am using vB 3.8 and Wordpress 2.8.4. I installed Wordpress in a sub-directory on the same domain where my vB is installed. I have the Wordpress up running fine and the vbridge plugin activated in wordpress. I seem to be stuck on the vbridge settings in wordpress, because I cannot successfully do a test post. I get the following message before the test post:

"cannot include /home/mydomainurl/wordpress/wp-admin/global.php. You should check your path! Turning Plugin Off"

I not sure if I am doing the path correctly. but here are the url to my vB forums:

http://mydomain/forums.php

The specific url to the actual forum where I want the posts dropped is:

http://mydomain/forumdisplay.php?f=2

I am not sure what is meant by FORUM ID from this information !. Is it the actual name of the forum or a number from the url ?. If I can sort this part out, I might make some progress with the install completion.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
cammot

Complete Wordpress/Vbulletin Bridge - Share Users And Postings

I have no replies to my request for help from last night. If anyone can please offer any assistance, would be most grateful. Also, an additional point - I do not see a global.php file in the directory referenced in my previous message and wondering if that might be the issue !. There was no global.php files in the installation files and wondering why and how it might be referencing this file !. I have also not done anything yet on the vB CP.

Please help.

Thanks
cammot

Hey I got this working on my site. You can see a demo here: http://kontagio.us

It messed up the flash uploader in media but the browser upload still works. Thanks for this great bridge.

All other section (like links, to create a article) works fine. Only the edit function und the options-permalink.php doesn't work. Has anyone an idea how I can fix this?

Does anyone have a fix for this? Best suggestion I've seen is to use the old plugin. Haven't tried that yet myself, but it does say it's not to be used with current software versions.

Edit: Nevermind. I banged on the monitor and wiggled the cables and now it works. Not sure what I did to 'fix' it.
