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

vBridge + WassUp plugin working together!

Hi all,

WP doesn't have a tracking system by itself so I decided to use a plugin called WassUp. It tracks visitors on your site and offers statistics as a widget. I can confirm that displays vBulletin users navigating the WP site with their usernames and all

Ima so hapy!

i looked at your site and since it's in Spanish, i can't understand much.

I like to know how you get the avatar to display in WP from the user's VB avatar.

Do you store avatar in database or in file?

I have an urgent problem with my site using wp-vb integration.

Suddenly the integration stopped working, have no clue why.

My site goes blank on wp part if I keep plugin installed, shows again when I put wordpress bridge functions off (but than my users can't access wordpress part).

I would appreciate help ASAP. $25/hour.

Didn't you by any chance change the password for the user that's linking to your vBulletin? or something like that?

How you mean? Which user is linking to my vbulletin?

All my users are vb users that get transferred to WP via the plugin. No user passwords were changed by me.

When you setup this plugin in WP, the first thing you do is tell the plugin which vBUlletin user is gonna act as the new WP admin once the plugin is working. I don't know what happens in WP if you change this user's profile in vB or even worse, delete it but it was worth asking.

Which file do we edit?

This applies only to VB that uses database to store avatar? I store avatar in file folder so I guess it won't work.

You can use this code anywhere in the page on the wordpress blog you're linking to.
needs the avatar to be within the database though i'm sure
If you can post a few examples of your forums avatar urls and the matching user id's for those files i'll try and code something up for you though
