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

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.

Located a bug on my own - vJoomla needs to re-eval the header and footer after it parses the modules in case you have a module in those positions. This correction will be included on the next revision. If you wish to apply it now open vJoomla's index file and find these lines

Could anybody confirm that he has successfully installed this mod on a localhost server? I suspect there is a server config issue stopping me from setting this up...

If your doing a testbed install try installing vbulletin without a bb prefix. If it works it means the problem is I forgot to put TABLE_PREFIX in front of one of my vbulletin queries.

Thanks for looking into this. Unfortunately that's not the case, I have installed another fresh forum + joomla. Going to move the files to a live server and see how it goes there...

Joomla 1.5 beta 2 out

Joomla 1.5 beta 2 is out. It seems the template system didn't come to pass from a glance at the code. I'll have to read some docs though. Whatever the case, it won't be stable till I'm guessing October, so that means this project will continue. Still, it is worth a look.

Two questions.

1. Does the forum HAVE to be located in /forum or can it be a different subfolder?

2. Can the joomla vbulletin skinning be turned off? Id like to use the current Joomla Template and a different forum template.

Thanks.

Michael-

I know you're a very busy person. My issue I think was overlooked on page 8 towards the top. If you have time please look at it.

Thanks

Just a quick FYI:
If you add both vB and Joomla to the same database you may want to avoid giving the tables the same extension. The problem is that both products have a table named Session.

Also, be careful not to rename the admincp (and maybe the modcp) folders as is often recommended as the Joomla Control Panel link to the vB backend will not work.


Michael - been fooling around with this and seems pretty interesting though I'm running into a few issues which I think I can resolve.

considering it hasn't even been released for a day....

since it's still very much in beta I'm hoping you're not asking to implement it on a live site. as such, why don't you download it, install it, and let us all know.

Sorry about the delay folks. Had a pair of major flash projects erupt for the week so wasn't able to do any work through the week. I am continuing work through this weekend. I'll be upgrading my test server to 3.6.6. I may have a patch out by tomorrow, but it won't be the installer.

That's a compatibility issue between this hack and vbseo caused by a failed include. Since vJoomla will eventually use it's own rewrite schema I do not think these products will ever be compatible.

When the installer is done it will be possible to put them anywhere in relationship to each other. HOWEVER, for now the path is hardcoded in several spots. If you're feeling adventurous it's in joomla's global.php and in the plug in.

Looks like a require failure but beyond that I'm not sure.

A very good point. Personally I recommend letting joomla use it's default table prefix of jos_

Also, be careful not to rename the admincp (and maybe the modcp) folders as is often recommended as the Joomla Control Panel link to the vB backend will not work.
Correct - for now. The installer will fix this.
