We've also had issues of this nature between vBulletin and WordPress when the email addresses of existing accounts vs. forum accounts are not the same, causing a user that would normally have WordPress access to receive the above error message, however I have done my best to resolve those issues with minimal interference.
Would it be possible to shed some light on why my users would have issues logging into their accounts normally, through vBulletin? I would greatly appreciate it!
Hi, Kesha!
Thank you for your patience. Could you please contact support team http://vbsso.com/report-an-issue/ describing the steps you use to reproduce your case on your website. Thank you and have a nice day!

After vBSSO installation and connecting platform to it (Wordpress in your case) all "Login" and "Registration" links of any platform would provide to vBulletin "Login" and "Registration" pages.

So, in global meaning the answer will "Yes", but in revert direction:
people who register with vbulletin also will registered with wordpress.

vBSSO does not migrates all users at once. Every user will be created in Wordpress at first authorization with vBulletin.

Make sure that this user account has identical usernames and emails on both platforms. Also, if you already configured `vBSSO Access Settings` in vBulletin, try to login with empty settings.

So I take it from what your saying is the vbulletin users will slowly populate over to the wordpress as users? I see it going up about 100 or so users a day on the wordpress side.
