Ok... so how exactly would that work or what do you have to do? Besides installing the plugin and adding the wordpress instance...

Like do they have to register on wp with the same email they have in vb or?

Got a reply from my hosting provider.

“I am trying to figure out the problem with your application not working correctly. I cannot seem to replicate it or diagnose it further....

We are using a WHM/Cpanel setup. Your last post to him said it was attempting to curl his wordpress site and receiving a 403 Forbidden error. I have setup a page in his vbulletin site that attempts to access the connector url, which is http://mysite/wp-content/plugins/vbsso/vbsso.php

I set up a demo page to test it. It uses curl to grab the above link and output the result. It seems to work fine.

I would appreciate any help you might be able to give me. If you have an example I can upload to the site for easier troubleshooting, I would appreciate it. I have been using Google to search for ideas, but haven't found any others posting about this..”

Hey, you guys.
Unfortunatly I've experienced a few problems. I'm running vB 4.1.11 under boards.example.com and WordPress 3.3.1 under blog.example.com. vB is my "Core-System", so registration should only be available on it, but users need to be able to access WordPress as well (using ClassiPress Premium Theme).

After I found your great vBSSO Plugin I've installed it instantly

Everything worked fine, the system established the connection and wordpress was fetching the users logging in to vB (they show up in WPs users list). But they are not logged in to wordpress automatically and cannot login via WPs login form (password error).

Another problem is, that I can't sign out of my wp admin account anymore. WP redirects me straight back to WP Dashboard after clicking the Sign out button keeping me logged in.

I just have no idea what to do... Would be great to hear from you, I need your help :/

Alex

Hi Amaca, thanks for the trying vBSSO Sol, regarding the first your question, this feature requires to modify both vBSSO plugins for WordPress and vBulletin to support correct redirect to profile. The 2nd feature starts working if you create new accounts in vBulletin for people who left older comments and associate an avatar with account in vBulletin.

There is no needs to create user accounts in WordPress, if person has account in vBulletin and logs in, vBulletin vBSSO creates account in WordPress automatically.

Hey xeagle,
thank you for your answer, but it didn't solve my problem...

I've been trying it for hours, but when I log in to vBulletin and go to my blog afterwards, I'm not logged in to wordpress and even cannot log in manually because it says "wrong password".

But when I log in to my blog with my admin account I see my vBulletin Account in the wordpress user list.

After that I can't even log out of Wordpress anymore, it just redirects me (saying "Logging you out.") back to the page I'm currently viewing.

What can I do?

Alex
