Identical to this Mod here, but now for the Vbulletin 3.8 line.
DOES NOT WORK FOR Vbulletin 4.x

This version probably no longer works for Wordpress 3.x. I have started developing this product over and have released the NEW version here:

http://www.lampwrights.com/showthread.php?t=41




This mod bridges your Vbulletin users over to Wordpress. You can also use Vbulletin as your comment engine instead of the spammy one built into Wordpress. You can display the comments inline in your post. You need not use the comment feature, if your only interested in sharing users.

You can map your Vbulletin Usergroups to Wordpress Usergroups and those users will then be recognized as registered Wordpress users.

For example, user "Joe" registers at your forum and logs in. Joe then clicks on your Wordpress page. Joe is instantly added to the Wordpress user base with the permissions you set for his usergroup. In otherwords, if a user comes over belonging to the "Registered User" group, you can select that he is placed in the Wordpress "Subscriber" usergroup.

If you change a users group from vbulletin, it will automatically change in Wordpress.

Requirements:
  • DOES NOT and WILL NEVER support Wordpress MU.
  • Wordpress and Vbulletin scripts must reside on the same physical server.
  • Wordpress and Vbulletin must use the same domain name.
  • Stable Wordpress Version greater than or equal to 2.7.
  • DOES work for Vbulletin 3.7.
  • Does work for vBulletin 3.8.
Limitations:
  • Does not work for 4.x. Why? Because VB 4.x does not work for me. If they ever make that product worth a shit, I might support it.
  • Please don't ask if it works for any BETA versions of Vbulletin. I do not know and will not convert this to the latest version of VB (whatever it is at the time you are reading this) until the version is released as non-beta.
  • Does not work with XMLRPC.
  • Chances are, this will not work when VB and Wordpress are located in different sub domains. I.E. forum.yoursite.com - blog.yoursite.com. Cookie issue.
  • I did the best I could in determining your forums file path with the script. There may be certain script setups that cannot find the file path properly, in which case you may get errors that the script cannot find or open /config.php. If this is the case, please HARDCODE your ABSOLUTE path to the forum in vbridge.php.

    To do this find:


    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

    And uncomment the last line, and change the path to your forums path:


    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Common Mistakes When Installing:
  • Using two different host names causes problems. If your forum URL contains www.yourdomain.com, then your wordpress blog URL MUST contain the www. part of www.yourdomain.com also. This goes for any other host name. Browsers are finnecky when it comes to cookies (as they should be).
  • Editors generally EDIT, not write. In Wordpress, editors don't show up in the post author drop down. This has nothing to do with this plugin, that is Wordpress code.
  • Make sure you DO NOT create a subdirectory for this plugin in the wp-content/plugins directory. Just upload it directly there..
  • If you do not map users before you turn auto-integrate on, the plugin has no idea whether your allowed into the dashboard.
  • If you all of a sudden can't login to the dashboard, see the above two common mistakes.
  • FOLLOW the directions and make a test post first. Being in a rush and not testing will most likely turn out bad for you.
UPDATES:

Changelog is included in download, here is the most recent changes:

3/09/2009
  • Added code to process scheduled posts
  • Addressed code where links and images would not show up properly in VB
  • Added new table called vb_forumid for scheduled posts
  • Reduced redundant calls when dealing with forum excerpts

Hi Commander,

Try switching to explorer upload. I know it's a pain to upload one by one, but that error happens only when using the flash uploader.

This was happening to me when my forum(/forum) was there, and my blog was in the main public html directory. I moved the blog to (/blog) and everything was fine. I think it's a cookie path thing.

I have this working to the point of people can use the same login for both forum and WP. I can post to forum as well.

After i can make a test post, I then turn on integration and turn of Post to Forum.
Now I tried to map a usergroup to Contributor or Author and when I click Map, they have this warning

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /public_html/wp-content/plugins/vbbridge.php:153) in /public_html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 868

all the previous posts are now not showing any author because the mapping didn't work.

any idea?

Now, before we integrate, the admin account on WP side made a dozen or so posts, now after integration, those posts are without author because the old admin isn't there in VB database anymore and we don't have the ability to assign new author to it.

Do only VB usergroups that get mapped to Author group can get assigned as author of a post? Do Contributors group be author of a post as well?

thanks

Ok few issues.

1 - How do i add a quote button into the comments.
2 - How do i get it to display the author's name as a name, and not as a username? Currently says the article was posted by Aruffell. I want is like it was saying Andy Ruffell
3 - How do i get ALL previous posts to use the forum for comments as now all of my posts barring one have no comments since this system was put into place?
4 - See screenshot below. Due to him quoting on the forum, it's come out funny looking.



Any ideas?

Thanks,

Andy

I'm having a problem getting the author name to display on my posts. This plugin was working fine before, until I just noticed the author name was linking to the WP author page (which doesn't exist). I guessed this must have been due to a Wordpress update, so I restored the vbbridge code:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

But for some reason, it will no longer display the username. When I view the source there, the correct link to my VB profile is there, but no username?

I have a special usergroup in VB that is mapped as Contributor in WP. They can write post and submit for review.
However, when an admin edit the post and publish it, the author of the article became that admin, not the original contributor.

Anyone knows how to keep the original author intact even if it's being edited by other admin/editor

Thank you.
