Integrate your vBulletin forum with Wordpress.

The lite version of this Wordpress vBulletin bridge allows your Wordpress posts to be posted to vBulletin.

This is a Wordpress plugin that facilitates this functionality. Just install it in your WP plugin folder and set up the path to your vBulletin installation. As long as the forum is on the same server, this works well.

No need to combine the databases. No need to modify core WP files.

It's that easy!

All of your Wordpress posts will be posted in your forum. You will designate a forum to take these posts. If you have sub forums that match the name of the category of the Wordpress post, this plugin will automatically put the post there.

The full version, available at wp-vb-bridge.obscurecloud.com// allows more functionality to fully integrate your Wordpress and vBulletin including:

Wordpress->vB features:
  1. *Registration sync - new users created on WP are automatically created on vB
  2. *New post sync - new WP posts are intelligently posted to the matching forum. There are some controls on which forum they are posted to.
    Options:
    - Posts can be attributed to the user posting or
    - All posts can be attributed to a designated user
  3. *Comment sync - new comments made on WP are posted to the synced forum
  4. *Login sync - when you login or logout of WP, the vB session is created or destroyed at the same time
  5. *Avatar sync - vBulletin avatars are used on WP comments (requires user-photo WP plugin)
  6. *No modification of core WP files!
  7. *No modification of WP config file!
  8. *100% plugin setting based - install the plugin, set your forum path, activate the features you want, enjoy!

vBulletin ->Wordpress features *NEW*
  • *Registration sync - new users created on vB are automatically created on WP
  • *New thread sync - new vB threads are intelligently posted to the matching WP category.
    Options:
    - Only post to designated category
    - Try to match forum name (or any of its parents) to a WP category then post to the designated category if no match is found.
    - Try to match forum name (or any of its parents) to a WP category then create a new WP category
  • *Reply sync - replies made to synced threads will have replies posted to the matching WP post
  • *Login sync - when you login or logout of vB, the WP session is created or destroyed at the same time
  • *No modification of core vB files!
  • *No modification of vB config file!
  • *100% plugin based - this plugin will create the vB plugins needed through the WP plugin settings page!

This is still a work in progress so the code will be updated often.

Feel free to let me know how it works, additional features you'd like, and if you have any problems.

Here is a guide from a user:
Thanks a bunch for putting this together BAJR
Quick Guide.

First unpack the folder into plugins, where all the files and sub folders should reside in [wb-vb] folder.

now in Wordpress Plugins, activate the plugin and then go to Settings --> WP Vb integration


Essentials are as follows: (everything else you can play with!)


1) Path to vBulletin. / means the Vbulletin Forum is in your root folder. ie www.mysite.com/
/forum/ means the Vbulletin Forum is in a folder called forum. ie www.mysite.com/forum/
ALWAYS add the trailing /


2) Activate login sync feature [check box]


3) Activate post sync feature [check box]

4) Forum ID - this is the NUMBER of your desired linked forum ( sub forums are added from this) so look at your vbulletin URL

http://mysite.com/forumdisplay.php?6-The-Forum the ID would be 6


5) vBulletin user id to assign posts to - this is numerical as well. so ID number of who you want to add these too.



6) vBulletin -> Wordpress Settings

Add vBulletin plugins ... click add


7) go back up and click [TEST] - if all is well you should see... vB loaded Plugins - 1|1|1|1|1|1|1



8) SAVE CHANGES...

I am curious about something..while the price seems fair I am confused as to why it costs $600 to install and that does not even include the plug in cost. I am hoping this was a typo because if it is that difficult to set up I will skip it. Hopefully you added an extra zero by accident..

Great though! I am sure I will purchase this in the future depending on branding.
The $600 is for the theme unification (I am not charging $600 to install a WP plugin!). That process is custom to each site. It is not a typo. It's a lot of work. I did change the site to say it comes with the plugin.

If help is needed installing the plugin or getting it to work, I've been very responsive on that front (sorry zgeek, doing it now). I've downloaded entire sites locally to track down odd bugs, helped install and configure (so i can make the set easier) and whatever else I need to do to support this plugin (at no additional charge).

Ok I have tested this on a standard installation on the same server and still the same problem. No WP posts go into the forum.

The forum is as a live forum to accept posts. I have checked the user id etc to post to as well. So at the moment it's not functioning at all

Otherwise, I'l update when I find the issue.

Thanks.

Just a heads-up to everyone, obscureclouddon fixed my issue which was due to the VB database having a prefix on tables.

With some great support the issue was resolved and works brilliantly. Would recommend anyone to check this out if they are looking for this kind of solution. obscureclouddon fixed this super fast!

Fixes are in. Updates are done.
Now the user sync works really well.

Oh, and the price has been lowered.
Enjoy.

Wow this is actually really great! Thanks for all the hard work you put into this. (Will be purchasing this in the next couple of days most likely)

Just had a couple quick questions for you though. Are you going to continue to improve and give updates to this and also is it working on the new vb 4.2.1?

Also does this sync with already registered vb users on my forum or will they have to create a new account on wp with it?

Thanks!

As I understand you, this should work just fine.

I do not anticipate any issues with 4.2.1

There is a nice sync utility that will automatically sync or create all the users it needs to sync the two systems up.
Basically it goes through all WP users, tries to match them with an existing vB user. If it can't, it makes a new vB account and syncs it.
Then it goes through all the left over vB users and does the same - tries to find a matching WP user and if not, makes a new WP acct automatically.

It's pretty sweet if i don't say so myself.

In the options, am I able to turn off all of the post syncing and just use the registration and user synch only?

I'm in the process of designing a new front page for my forum that will be done in WP. I want my vBulletin users (existing) to be able to comment on WP articles. If they're logged into vBulletin, I want them to automatically be logged into WP and visa versa - like an SSO only of sorts.

Am I able to adjust the settings in admincp to just allow for the vB>WP and WP>vb login feature?

Yes. You can use the registration and login sync without using the post sync.
There are three ways it will work:
Disable WP login and registration. Logging into vB will allow access to WP as well.
Disable vB login and registration. Logging into WP will allow access to vB as well.
Leave them both available. Logging in or registering in one, will handle the other.
