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.

I've been working with this mod and I have to say, excellent, excellent job! This is absolutely perfect for what I've needed to do, and I would like to say, please keep up the excellent work!

I've found a way to also incorporate the custom images from an individual vBulletin style. In the installation instructions for the mod I have enabled, it says to place its custom images folder in the main directory; so I did so for the vJoomla directory and it works as well.

If you're curious on how my site looks, its http://pinkowitz.org

Thank you for making this stellar mod Mike!

Like many others I have been following this thread with excitement and anticipation. It would be a shame if your hard work and this amazing mod would go down the drain. I sincerely hope that this will be solved.

I have a bad, bad temper. I'm sorry. I've had some time to cool off, and it isn't fair to anyone watching the dev of this mod for it to be cancelled over this. So I'm going to go home, get some rest, in the morning I'll reupload the files. This news couldn't have come at a worst time for me - my father is very ill so I'm not in a good mood as is.

Again, my apologies.

Sorry to hear about your father and your situation with Jelsoft.

As I mentioned in the early part of this thread I think this product has the potential to do a lot of good, so I hope you see a way to continue development. If you feel up to elaborating on the Jelsoft issue maybe some of us can offer suggestions.

Arrow Current vJoomla Issues

To help you out a bit, I'd like to make a post to describe the errors I am getting with the add-on as of today.

For reference, xxx = Directory in file path that I manually edited out, and was not included in the actual error message.

Key Problems
  • Nav Bar on Header and Footer link to a nonexistant page on the vJoomla index (but are functioning correctly on the forum page). Fix would be to allow custom URL settings for the Nav Bar and utalized Forum Modules. Temporary fix is to manually change the URL in the address bar to match the module that is of the Forums location.
  • The "Who's Online" Module, when clicking upon a username, does not provide the correct URL, a problem similar to that of the Nav Bar on the vJoomla index. The "Who's Online" also displays an inaccurate number of the "Most Users Online" and continually resets its number.

Minor Problems
  • Error text displayed on the News Module page (as shown in bold)
    1. "Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /homepages/13/xxx/htdocs/xxx/components/com_content/vbcontent.html.php on line 35" - The News; This category is currently empty
    2. "Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /homepages/13/xxx/htdocs/xxx/components/com_content/vbcontent.html.php on line 113" - Latest News; items
  • Error text displayed on the FAQ Module page (as shown in bold)
    1. "Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /homepages/13/xxx/htdocs/xxx/components/com_content/vbcontent.html.php on line 35" - Example FAQ's; this category is currently empty
    2. "Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /homepages/13/xxx/htdocs/xxx/components/com_content/vbcontent.html.php on line 113" - [Back]

I will continue to edit my post if I observe any more, but these seem to be the major ones at the moment.

This is great news to reopen the hack.
I don't understand why jellsoft calling you a thief unless they afraid that the option of using joomla & vbulletin will effect thier sales when they start selling CMS (I hope this is not the case).

hope your father will get better.

What does that mean?

Thanks...
Fixed. Just had to re-upload and it worked.

This is looking really good Michael..please don't give up on this...you're doing great work!

Should be the last question. When I go into the vB AdminCP and go to click on "vjoomla Administrator" it comes up with a blank white page, but at the bottom it has a url that includes something about "you need to login"...It is trying to get to my joomla/administrator page. Just comes up blank.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Nevermind on that too! I got it figured out...re-uploaded the files and it worked!

I'm still confused on how I can change the links for the Top and Bottom Nav Bars, Top Login Panels, and the right "Who's Online" Block for vJoomla, but not for the vBulletin forum. Is there a PHP file that can be edited to do so? Another solution to consider would be removing the Nav Bars and Top Login Bar on vJoomla, being that the login block to the left works perfectly. I am fine with either one.
