Thank you,
We have emailed you to check out the path to your vBSSO vBulletin files - the `upload` folder should be uploaded to the `/` root directory of your vBulletin forum - it seems the issue is related to the vBSSO vBulletin file path. Could you please give us a reply if the issue is still actual?

Thank you,

Hi,
We are running vBSSO 1.5.1 on VBulletin 4.2.3 Patch Level 1
It is connecting with WordPress 4.7.5

There seems to be constant problems for our members logging in to the WordPress side of the site.

We use Memberpress to control content depending on membership levels and this just doesn't work consistently.

Any help or advice you can possibly offer would be most appreciated.
Thanks,
Mark

Hi Xeagle,

Any update? With the new version of vbulletin 4.2.5, we need to have php 5.6, which would not work with the existing mediawiki plugin... php 5.5 is also EOL already.

Therefore, a quick update would be very much appreciated.
