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...

See Problems with this plug-in and-or this site.
Look, this is like a carpenter who has half built walls in his house, or a plumber with a leaky faucet.
I'm not really going to spend much time optimizing the site. I prefer to spend my time helping customers get their systems up and going (as you can see from comments from people I've helped in this thread) and adding features to the plugin. I have a full time job and have not made even close to what I've put into this. If the site sucks, so be it. If you question my support or whether the plugin will work, just ask anyone who has purchased it. I'd be happy to spend my time helping you get your site to where you want it over worrying about nav bar links on my site that's only purpose is to process payments and downloads.

Thanks to everyone who has said nice things about the plugin and my efforts to support it!

I assume this is due a database timeout?
any hint how to correctly convert all users?

edit_ after hitting the button several times I am up to 21.000 users now, let's see how that goes.
I'm glad you got the character issue worked out.

As for the user sync, it is a pretty heavy process. I tested on a site with 15k users and it took about 20 minutes. However, i did set it up so that you can re run it like you did.
The way it works is first going through all WP users and seeing if there is a match in vb. For each match, it syncs them. Then it goes through all of the vb users that were not synced and looks for a a match in WP and syncs the ones that it finds.
Then it goes through all of the WP users that were not matched and created a vb user for them and syncs it.
Then it goes through all of the vb users that didn't have a match and does the same (creates a wp user, and syncs it)
If the script times out, it will pick up where it left off next time you run it as it ignores users that are already synced. But it will take longer with each pass.
If you have a lot of vb users, the query that gets unsynced users does take a long time.
I plan on optimizing this as soon as I get some of the more critical issues worked out.

Custom prefixes should not be a problem at all. The plugin loads WP and vB just like the browser does. It pulls the db data from the config files.

As for scheduled posts, currently they do not sync. That is going to be the next thing i address along with syncing changes from vb thread/comment edits.

vb and wordpress running on same server ( as far as I know)

the cpanel is not used... this is a wordpress plugin that links to vbulletin. so all the admin is done from wordpress

works well - even in beta form

vb 4.x

i don't know what the minimum version of WP would be, but it does work with the most recent version of WP.

both scripts do need to be running on the same server.

Hi does the full version integrate current wordpress members to vbulletin? Is there a script that runs queries to do so? I understand new users will sync to vbulletin but what about current WP Members?

Yes. It will add WP users to vB and vB users to WP.

Hello obscureclouddon

First of all, thank you for all of your effort, just bought the full version!

The sync from Wordpress to vbulletin works flawless, but usersync from vbulletin to wordpress is not working for me.
I have activated the vbulletin plugins via WP, all plugins are displayed green and usersync VB-WP is activated.

Did i miss something?

Another Question, is it possible to sync each wordpress category to another forum ID?

Thanks!
Dennis

I'll take a look at the vb->wp user sync. I've heard a few issues there.

As for the cat->forum, it should work that way now with a bit coordination. Right now, you define a parent forum id for WP posts to go into. The plugin will automatically look for sub forum names (o the parent you supplied) that match the WP category name of the post and put them there.
