Joomla for vBulletin (IMPORTANT UPDATE) - Bridge to the World's Most Popular CMS
Mod Version: 1.0.0 RC2, by Michael Morris (Member) Michael Morris is offline
Developer Last Online: Jun 2009 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This thread is in the Modification Graveyard.
vB Version: 3.6.x Rating: (10 votes - 4.80 average) Installs: 68
Released: 26 Apr 2007 Last Update: Never Downloads: 899
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

Warning!!! An potential exploit has been found in this modification. The server that hosts vjoomla.com has been attacked several times. It is known to already be severely comprimised so at this time it is unclear whether the vulnerability lies in vJoomla, Joomla itself or the server. Until this is resolved to my satisfaction I am removing this modification. My apologies.


The modification WILL be re-released once this issue is resolved!

vJoomla is an offshoot of Joomla 1.0 that is designed to run in tandem with vbulletin. Unlike the main release it will not run without vbulletin - if you desire a CMS without a forum then use Joomla! instead. vJoomla is identical in most all regards to Joomla!

What vJoomla Does
  • Provide a single session, single login interface to Joomla and vbulletin.
  • Allows Joomla pages to be skinned by vbulletin's template engine.
  • Maps Joomla usergroups to vbulletin usergroups.

What vJoomla Does Not Do
  • It does not rewrite your templates for you - so you will need to go in currently and change relative links to images and pages to absolute links. This is most important in the style sheets and in the navbar template. This is something you need to do yourself rather than programmatically since no two sites are likely to be using the same style sheet and the same setup for these links.

Install Instructions
  1. Log into your admincp
  2. Close your forum
  3. If your forums are at the root of your site move them elsewhere - the best location is probably /forum
  4. Upload the files from the zip packages to their respective locations. There should be no overwrites.
  5. Navigate to the root of your site and run the Joomla installer.
  6. Go back to the admincp and install the Joomla product file
  7. Now either copy the ./cpstyles, ./clientscript and ./images directory of the forum into the Joomla directory OR create symbolic links to those directories. The contents of the ./images directory of Joomla and vbulletin will need to be merged.

This is release candidate 2.

Tonight's project goals --

1. Get the vJoomla site up and running. I'll continue to watch this site, but the forum will provide a working example of the module. For now the site will be my online dev example.
2. If I have enough time after that I'll be releasing version .1.3. It will include the login module among other fixes.

Sort of. vJoomla doesn't use the Joomla table for authentication at all - it authenticates off the vbulletin object. This means only one list of users with one set of log ins are all that are needed for both sides of a site.

Now I'm still cleaning things up, but for those of you that have been holding out for a demo of this product, here we go

Version 0.1.3 is out. The debug code has been removed (it was generating more mail than I can hope to sort through - luckily I linked it to a throwaway email account). Those worried about security though can rest easier. A minor bug in the product_jos.xml has also been removed.

Re: bbpixel.

BBpixel transfer to new hosting
Posted by koudanshi - 05-23-07 04:05 - 0 comments - Read 5 times - make a comment
Hello all,

We're please to inform all of you that we will transfer BBpixel to new hosting provider. The current one can not handle the resource and we switch to another provider.

The time to do will be in range 23-May - 26-May.

Please go back again if you have any problem access our site.
Michael has clearly stated that bbpixel and vJoomla are different solutions with different goals. Some vB users might want to use bbpixel.

vJoomla.com looks good. So very cool to see the native Joomla! install with vB templates.

Hmm, strange, just installed the newest version of vBAdvanced, and if i enable the hack now, some modules work (at the vBAdvanced homepage), not all, but most of them. My news module isn't working though. I wonder what the problem could be... It might be the PHP-files?

EDIT: @Micheal: You might want to try installing vBAdvanced CMPS (at www.vbadvanced.com), it's free and alot of people are using this. Maybe you can see what's wrong.

I wouldn't know. I'm familiar with vbAdvanced, this is the system the sites I admin currently run. I haven't investigated any of the problems between them - the two products aren't really meant to go together at all.

Yeah, that's the strange part. Only the News and Who's Online modules aren't working... Hope i can figure it out, since i could really use this.

Well, my next tool I'm working on will move news posts out of the forum you designated for them in vbAdvanced and put them in the Joomla content table where they really belong, and also allow for commenting. Once vJoomla is ready to go there shouldn't be a NEED to run vbAdvanced alongside it.

its probably the most exciting mod i've ever seen in vb. Thats just what i need as hundreds of other vbulletin&joomla users.

Thank you for devoloping and sharing that mod. Im looking forward to see the stable version. I think it will be a very popular mod in the future..

That's an intermittent PHP 5 error - I need to upgrade my version of PHP on that server.
