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:

  • 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

Just one problem thus far. I use excerpts for my forum comment posting and for some reason the link looks like this:

http://www.middleearthcenter.com/unc...ed/%postname%/

It gets the category right, but it doesn't have the right URL for the post name

As for the rest, I will probably be doing that at some point soon, as I have a site that will need it.

As for getting VB into your WP theme, well, that is like asking where can I put nails in my house. Depends on where in your house and for what purpose. :P

Once the plugin is activated (auto-integrate), the $vbulletin object should be available to you just about everywhere. Just global $vbulletin; and you have it.
Ah, I'm pretty new to vb.

I've found the global.php file, do I just add "$vbulletin;" to it somewhere? If you could provide me with steps I'd really appreciate. (I've never been so lost) lol

Thanks for the response, I noticed but I think an additional plugin for logging in would suite those who don't plan on keeping the normal wp one.

Example

Log In;
User Name
Password
*Remember Me
(Login Button)

Not registered?
Register now!

Forgot your password?

Logged In;
Welcome back ;user

My account
Admin Panel (*)
Mod Cp (*)
Profile
Latest Posts <-- Forum side.. "search.php?do=getnew")

Log Out

Thanks again,

This is my problem as well. I want users to be able to log in, but after "OK" I want them to be redirected to Wordpress instead of the admin screen.

Same for logging out of wordpress. This redirects me to the Wordpress Login screen. Instead, after logging out, I want to redirect users to Wordpress instead of to the login screen.

I only want users to receive a logged-in status (both forum and wordpress) when logging into wordpress, and not have them redirect to admin screen. Exactly the same as logging into the forums. That too does *not* redirect a user to the adminscreen. I'd like to have Wordpress function in the same way. Log into wordpress: user is logged into vB and WP, and sees wordpress front-end. Log into vBulletin: user is logged into vB and WP and sees vBulletin front-end. Is this possible?

However, besides that it works great, and I would like to thank you very much for this bridge. Great work, thanks a lot!

Has anyone tried scheduled posts in Wordpress? I have my site setup so that new posts get published to wordpress, a corresponding forum thread is created, and then the comments from the forum thread are shown in place of the wordpress comments.

With the previous version of this plugin, the scheduled wordpress post would go up, but the corresponding forum thread was never created, thus readers were unable to comment. This was remedied by manually opening the published post and then publishing manually (which defeats the entire purpose of scheduled posts). This is a major issue for me.

Also, when you say you removed XMLRPC support, what does that exactly mean? I know what XMLRPC is, does that meant that if I wrote and published a post using XMLRPC, it would still show in wordpress, but not get a corresponding forum thread created?

No idea. It could be a plugin, you could try adding this code before the include:

Import post INTO wordpress? This plugin does not do that. It will EXPORT a wordpress post to Vbulletin.

I have no idea why your WYSIWYG editor would disappear. Do you have a special non-stock version of the editor installed?

Hmm, could you do a quick test and see if that happens when you have permalinks off?

In Wordpress, once you have auto-integrated, if you want to use the $vbulletin object, it should be available to you just about anywhere, but you will probably have to globalize the object first:

I think I'm confusing you.

What I mean is how would I achieve this? http://www.poetryartonline.com/forums/ I know this ipb and the two systems are diffrent but with subdreamer it integrates the forum into the sd skin, I'm wondering how I can do the same but with your script. Have my VB forum displayed inside the wordpress theme?

It works fine with permalinks off. Perhaps its because I use a custom permalink structure?

Yeah, most likely that is a custom mod. These are things outside of the scope of this plugin. Basically from what I see though, they are just making it LOOK like it is inside, but the code is custom.
