vbDrupal is a fork of the CMS Drupal. It integrates Drupal into the forum software vBulletin.
vbDrupal is a close fork of Drupal, it has only be forked to modify some of the core files of Drupal for better interoperability. All changes made to the Drupal code will be merged with vbDrupal. Therefore a vbDrupal 5.x.y release is more or less identical to a Drupal 5.x release.

Drupal and vBulletin are tightly connected with each other, user accounts and sessions are shared between the two systems. vbDrupal tries to offer the best of both worlds. vbDrupal should be compatible with all user contributed modules and themes that can be found on the Drupal site.

Besides user and session integration vbDrupal also offers various modules to bring vBulletin content into the Drupal space.:
  • Latest threads/posts blocks
  • Import any vBulletin post as content
  • Use vBulletin for content comments
  • Latest poll block
  • Event and birthday blocks
  • Use vBulletin code for formatting in Drupal content

vbDrupal 5 makes used of the Drupal 5.x series and is only compatible with the vBulletin 3.6 series. vBulletin 3.5 users can use the vbDrupal 4.7 series.

Examples of sites using vbDrupal can be found here.

For proper support please go to the vbDrupal forums. Also take note that this product is still beta. Try it on a test installation first (and, of course, make backups), specially when you are already using vbDrupal 4.7.
It only had some minor testing, mostly done by me.
Personally I wouldn't use the vbDrupal 5 series on a production server until it hits RC (=Release Candidate).
Of course, more people testing this software will most likely result in better software.
So report anything that isn't correct (including documentation errors) on the vbDrupal forums.

Upgrading from vbDrupal 4.7 should be painless, assuming you don't have any 3rd party modules and themes. If you do, you of course, should update them to Drupal 5 versions.
Upgrading from vbDrupal 4.6 should be possible, but it's not something I've tested, it's probably best to first upgrade to the latest 4.7 release.

Starting with vbDrupal 5 there is no longer a need to manually install the product .xml, this will all be done automatically during installation/update.
But if you really need to manually (re)install the vBulletin plugins and what not, the product.xml can be found in: drupal/modules/vbcore/xml

Ok This appears to be useful but I'm a little confused on what it looks like on someone's site in a "production environment". I run a World Of Warcraft Guild site and I was thinking I might be able to use this, but my thinking is a bit foggy on it's relationship to Vbulletin. Can anyone fill in the blanks for me?

Thanks much,
Jim

The default theme of vbDrupal uses the vBulletin template engine and tries to make it look as much like vBulletin as possible.
Examples of sites using the default theme (all currently run on 4.7, but for 'looks' nothing changes with 5):
http://www.unrealadmin.org/ (this one also uses vbDrupal in the forum environment for the left side menu bar)
http://www.alleria.com/
http://www.spacebuffs.com/

But of course you can also decide to use a more customized theme for the drupal side.


(non-support questions can be asked here, but preferably on the vbdrupal forums because I don't monitor this thread as much as the vbdrupal forums are monitored).

The unrealadmin.org site really almost looks like a portal, good job on that. This is running well on my system right now, and I'm working on including some plugins to improve functionality.

Well, there were a few annoying bugs in the last RC release. So here is a second release candidate. No new features, just bug fixes and performance improvements.

Is there any way to get vbdrupal to work with vBadvanced CMS?

I have two sets of nav bars! How do I eliminate one of them?

http://www.fabsboards.com/portal to see what I mean.

Vbadvanced and Vbdrupal are both CMS systems. I would not recomend running the both.

I started playing around with a few templates and other Drupal addons. Everything I've tried works with this addon and it seems to function just like Drupal with the addition of of a few modules that integrate it with the forum. Really nice.

Version 5.2.0 has been released, the first non-beta, non-RC release.


Change log
  • some sessionid in url changes
  • registered vBulletin pages as a $_REQUEST['q'] value. This way blocks will
    be properly filters. All vBulletin pages register itself as:
    <forum>/[script name]
    where [script name] is the name of the script, for example:
    <forum>/showthread
  • fixed some issues with drupal bootstrapping and vBulletin's AJAX
  • fixed &quot; in created threads by comment_vb
  • updated .htaccess_new to not add a 2 weeks epiration to php files
    please update you .htaccess file according to these changes

I recently uninstalled vbDrupal 4.7 (using VBulletins Manage Plugins within the AdminCP) -- if I installed this, would I follow the same instructions as a fresh installation? Or as an update? Does using the "uninstall" revert the DB changes that occured on the original installation?

if you uninstalled vbDrupal 4.7 all tables should have been removed, so it would be a clean install.
anyway, it should be more or less failsafe, the installer will notify you when it already detects an installed vbDrupal (even if it's a previous release).
