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:

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

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

How to fix?

PS.:

Wordpress 3.0 - vBulletin 3.8.5
You can't use the WP login page. Login will only work via vBulletin. Once you are logged in on your forum navigate to the dashboard /wp-admin to be logged in automatically.

Do not automatically login. I enter this forum, I logged in, then go into the / site / wp-admin and it asks me password, I put the password on the forum, and it keeps redirecting me to the Forum.

How come?

Am on vB 3.8.5 and WP version 3.0.

Placed the files under plugins main folder, and still unable to get this Bridge installed.

Errors seem to be revolving around: Lines 23x

Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.


Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/public html/lostit.com/wp-content/plugins/vbbridge.php on line 237

So having a check with the Editor, turns out to be this code:

$_POST['post_title'] = fetch_censored_text(utf8_decode($_POST['post_title']));

Been searching and searching but without avail resource of help, hence this posting.

Appreciate any help in advance!

That's not exactly a fix. Look at the "fix" on page 76 and still not working.

Hey guys, I'm going to write a custom application built into my site. How can I go about pulling the current user information in PHP? I'd like to create a Guild Directory for a new MMORPG coming out on my site riftjunkies.com - Any help would be awesome!

Thanks~

This is something I've been trying to find out for some time now, as well.

Anyone who is sick and tired of all this hacky stuff to get user/password integration working with WordPress and vBulletin (like me), please vote for this suggestion to have a proper API for username and password: API for User name and Password (discussion)

Question still hasn't been answered, but I'm changing it up a bit. When I'm using the iPhone WP App I don't have the option to post the article to a forum - so I decided I would do that when I got home. I got home, edited the article (but this time I selected a forum) and it didn't get posted. How come? Is there a way to go back and edit the article to have it posted on the forums?
