Question Add users from an external non-vBulletin site ?

The title says it all.

Is that possible, if yes, how?

Thanks

it's possible two ways. 1) you can use the internal system for vB to add users:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...reate+New+User

that's a guide I found, but maybe you'll have better luck on getting it to work because I can't seem to. if you do get it working i'd love to know how :P

2) You can rebuild the whole registration system by hand, which requires advanced PHP/MySQL knowledge, but isn't to hard just more or less time consuming if you know what you're doing.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

Isn't ImpEx designed for transferring data from an external forum service into vBulletin?

He said he wanted to transfer it from a non-vbulletin site. Impex will transfer stuff from some non-vbulletin sites. He really wasn't too specific about what he wanted which is why I put a question mark after it.

Sorry, I wasn't clear enough, that I wanted to add users that register from another site to automatically be registered in vBulletin, is there some way to do this? I read something about API and data transfers, but I have no idea how.

I too would be interested in script that allows, for example, facebook fans to register for vb forums from information input on the FB fan page.

Ok, I got some more info from the developer of the site where people register and pay, they use a SOAP-based API to automatically add these users to the other site.

Is that possible using vBulletin? Has anyone ever used a SOAP-based API with vBulletin?

Thanks

So if I understand correctly, you want your site to accept a SOAP request to add a user? That shouldn't be too hard. There's SOAP support in php, so you probably just need a script that accepts the request and calls the vb functions to add a user.
