Integrate your vBulletin forum with Wordpress.

The lite version of this Wordpress vBulletin bridge allows your Wordpress posts to be posted to vBulletin.

This is a Wordpress plugin that facilitates this functionality. Just install it in your WP plugin folder and set up the path to your vBulletin installation. As long as the forum is on the same server, this works well.

No need to combine the databases. No need to modify core WP files.

It's that easy!

All of your Wordpress posts will be posted in your forum. You will designate a forum to take these posts. If you have sub forums that match the name of the category of the Wordpress post, this plugin will automatically put the post there.

The full version, available at wp-vb-bridge.obscurecloud.com// allows more functionality to fully integrate your Wordpress and vBulletin including:

Wordpress->vB features:
  1. *Registration sync - new users created on WP are automatically created on vB
  2. *New post sync - new WP posts are intelligently posted to the matching forum. There are some controls on which forum they are posted to.
    Options:
    - Posts can be attributed to the user posting or
    - All posts can be attributed to a designated user
  3. *Comment sync - new comments made on WP are posted to the synced forum
  4. *Login sync - when you login or logout of WP, the vB session is created or destroyed at the same time
  5. *Avatar sync - vBulletin avatars are used on WP comments (requires user-photo WP plugin)
  6. *No modification of core WP files!
  7. *No modification of WP config file!
  8. *100% plugin setting based - install the plugin, set your forum path, activate the features you want, enjoy!

vBulletin ->Wordpress features *NEW*
  • *Registration sync - new users created on vB are automatically created on WP
  • *New thread sync - new vB threads are intelligently posted to the matching WP category.
    Options:
    - Only post to designated category
    - Try to match forum name (or any of its parents) to a WP category then post to the designated category if no match is found.
    - Try to match forum name (or any of its parents) to a WP category then create a new WP category
  • *Reply sync - replies made to synced threads will have replies posted to the matching WP post
  • *Login sync - when you login or logout of vB, the WP session is created or destroyed at the same time
  • *No modification of core vB files!
  • *No modification of vB config file!
  • *100% plugin based - this plugin will create the vB plugins needed through the WP plugin settings page!

This is still a work in progress so the code will be updated often.

Feel free to let me know how it works, additional features you'd like, and if you have any problems.

Here is a guide from a user:
Thanks a bunch for putting this together BAJR
Quick Guide.

First unpack the folder into plugins, where all the files and sub folders should reside in [wb-vb] folder.

now in Wordpress Plugins, activate the plugin and then go to Settings --> WP Vb integration


Essentials are as follows: (everything else you can play with!)


1) Path to vBulletin. / means the Vbulletin Forum is in your root folder. ie www.mysite.com/
/forum/ means the Vbulletin Forum is in a folder called forum. ie www.mysite.com/forum/
ALWAYS add the trailing /


2) Activate login sync feature [check box]


3) Activate post sync feature [check box]

4) Forum ID - this is the NUMBER of your desired linked forum ( sub forums are added from this) so look at your vbulletin URL

http://mysite.com/forumdisplay.php?6-The-Forum the ID would be 6


5) vBulletin user id to assign posts to - this is numerical as well. so ID number of who you want to add these too.



6) vBulletin -> Wordpress Settings

Add vBulletin plugins ... click add


7) go back up and click [TEST] - if all is well you should see... vB loaded Plugins - 1|1|1|1|1|1|1

Bit too buggy for me just yet. Even the demo site is boken on the forum side.

The demo site worked for me. Are you looking at the last page? At first I thought it wasn't working because I was looking on the first page of the forums.

This has been working great for me.

obscure,

Can you let me know when is the best time to contact you on Skype? I'd really like to get the errors fixed before I release the site live.

Can someone please show me an example of a vB forum that is using the pro version of this mod to integrate forum content into a Wordpress CMS?

I would pay for the pro version if I could see how this is working on other websites, but at the moment it all seems like pie-in-the-sky as far as I can tell.

The complaints about issues have me worried.

Joe,

I'm working with obscure to fix login issues I'm having with the plugin on vBulletin 4.2.2 forums. The issue has to do with incompatibility with WP responsive themes.

I'm running a WP responsive video theme on my site hence the errors I'm getting. As soon as I can get the issues fixed, and take the site live, I'll post a link to the site here.

OK, I look forward to seeing it when you get it all sorted out. I need to understand and to be able to visualise how this thing works in practice.

Incidentally, I just checked the pricing on the Pro version and its $100 now. Wasn't it $30 or something just a few weeks ago?

Alright, sorry for the delays, but i do believe i am caught up on support issues. If I've somehow missed you, please contact me via skype - obscurecloud

And for anyone who is concerned about support or the plugin not working on the demo site, I do apologize. I took the day off of work to install customer sites locally in order to troubleshoot and once again have no time left to address my site...... I will make sure it works for you.
But the ones who matter are now working!

I sent you a message on skype but I need help with the installation. We can't get the plugin (full version) to work and now several of my editors are receiving white screens when trying to login.

This will be the most epic plugin once it's working so I cannot wait for this thing to be up and running. Thank you for all your work and great communication!
