Thank you for reaching out.

It seems the error is related with composer version used in vBSSO-lite. To investigate the issue more deeply could you please contact our support team to submit a support ticket. We will do our best to help you (please indicate your WordPress, vBSSO-lite and PHP versions).

Thank you,

Thanks, I still had issues when I added the admin user through vbulletin, but I found a way around it.

I installed the widget and it looks really strange on the site. I opened up a trouble ticket for that one.

Thanks for the quick reply.

We would like to recommend you to sync your admin user with vBulletin - you can add it manually via vBulletin Admin CP:

- all "old" WordPress users (registered before connecting vBSSO) should be sync with vBulletin users as vBulletin acts as a Master.

Otherwise you will be not able to log into the Wordpress backend (vBSSO works only for users registered on both platforms - WordPress and vBulletin).

Also please check out if the vBSSO widget was added on your WordPress site

- this will allow your new users to be redirected to vBulletin`s registration page and pass the registration
- vBSSO will add newly registered user to WordPress automatically

In case additional help please contact our support team to submit a support ticket and we will do our best to help you.

Thank you,

So what is the best setup for this to start out without causing issues?

I have some accounts in WP that were transferred in via aMember but some are not. I have tried logging in via a test account and takes me to vB and shows successful login, takes me back to WP and I am not logged in. The test account is not an account on WP already.

What is the best way to go about fixing this?

How vBSSO works?

vBSSO allows to sign in many connected platforms using your vBulletin account, for example, TEST USER. It means TEST USER should exist on vBulletin side. Connect vBSSO. Login as a TEST USER - vBSSO will create TEST USER on WordPress automatically.

Regarding your login issue - it seems you have not added vBSSO widget on your WordPress site. Could you please check this out? This widget is required (WordPress > Appearance > Widgets > add vBSSO Login widget to you widget area):

- it will redirect your users to vBulletin`s registration page and let them pass the registration on vBulletin
- vBSSO will add newly registered user to WordPress automatically

In case additional help please contact our support team to submit a support ticket and we will do our best to help you.

Thank you,

Thank you for reaching out.

We regret to hear that you have stopped using vBSSO product.

To uninstall the plugin completely, please (skip 2 first steps in case you are getting error during pugin enabling):
1. Disconnect your platforms;
2. Uninstall vBSSO via Admin Panel;
3. Delete vBSSO files via FTP manager (if needed).

If you need any assistance please feel free to contact our support team.
We will do our best to help you.

Bingo, that is exactly what I was looking for. That is how aMember works and I'm thinking that the issue we were having is actually just because it was my "test" account (literally named test). For some reason, that account causes problems on these things. Same with the aMember user creation.

I have the widget set up and was using that.

All registration happens on vBulletin for me, and I actually don't need people to login from Wordpress other than just convenience. Any way, I think the issue is just with that particular account because my main account I can login from.

Thank you for feedback,

Can you check out that particular account?
- it should exist on your WordPress and vBulletin sides;
- it should has one similar email address;
- it should has one similar password;
(- please check out sso access settings - the group your test user belongs to is allowed to be logged in WordPress? vBSSO > Access Settings > WordPress should be enabled)

Please check out these conditions (fix manually if needed) and your test account will be able to log in both platforms.

After enabling vBSSO and platform connection - your new registered accounts will bу added to WordPress automatically (with one similar email and password) and will be able to use sso.

Ok so the actual issue is just that I need to get the accounts that are already registered into Wordpress. Is there a simple way to pull that off?

Unfortunately, vBSSO can not check out the users that were registered before connecting the platforms - you should check those users manually or add some script.

If you need assistance with such script implementation we can propose our help (this is paid feature). Please contact our support team if you are interested.

Thank you for using vBSSO product.
