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)

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


    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

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

Great plugin, one serious problem. I upgraded from your previous release, and BAM all of a sudden my admin account does not exist. All of the Accounts made on vbulletin exist, but NOT my previous admin account. Infact, I had three wordpress admin accounts, all of which did not work.

Upon deleting the Vbbridge.php file, it now works again. Before I re-enable, I would love some input from the developer. I have the users mapped so Administrators on the forum are NOT administrators on Wordpress. I Want to have seperate admin accounts on both.

Yeah, once you switch integration on, it bypasses all of the Wordpress user and authentication processes, so if you want separate admin accounts, then you will have to leave integration off.

I don't plan on using the Vbulletin comments, or posting my Wordpress posts on Vbulletin, so if I turn integration off, Will I still be able to share users? That's the primary thing I want from the plugin.

Thank you for the quick reply.

Integration has to be on to share users (that is what integration is ). In other words, you can't share just SOME users. It is either all or nothing.

I suppose if you edit it a bit you could have it turn the plugin off for certain users from certain IP addresses or other such criteria, but I have not included such code to date.

I have no idea why your WYSIWYG editor would disappear. Do you have a special non-stock version of the editor installed?
My bad, I thought that it works the other way, that post on forum will be shown in wordpress page, sorry for that.

About the other issue, it is a Turkish tranaslation of Wordpress but that shouldn't be a problem, should it ?

It is the standart, identical translation of wordpress ( http://www.wordpress-tr.com/indir/ )

Great plugin! I just tried upgrading (overwriting the previous files) and my admin privileges to my Wordpress back end have been stripped. When i try to go to /wp-admin/ I get the "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page." error.

I tried logging in as the super admin account I have set up and I still get this error. I'm completely locked out. Any advice?

Also, while I have you here, is there any way to call the user's Avatar and User ID in WP? I would love to link to user profile pages within WP comments.

Try re-naming the plugin files via FTP. This should disable the plugin and let you back in...

It sounds to me like you did not map users first? Remember, you are logging in as your VBULLETIN admin user, not Wordpress. As long as the plugin is active, it uses the VBulletin user info.

If you want to map users after the fact it is little involved (which is why I make a point of it in the readme ). You need to edit the options table and set the vbion variable to 0.

If I get some time here tonight or tomorrow, I will try to write up a script to reset the script so you can activate it again and start over.

Remove the admin account? No accounts are removed, they are replaced. When you disable the plugin, the users are still there.

The admin account shouldn't be replaced under any circumstances, it's the original and has all the settings / permissions, no? I put all users as 'regular users' assuming the admin account would be there. I cannot disable the plugin and re-enable it as the settings are still there.

It would be nice if the admin account stayed while the others were imported.
