Just a quick note... Although it says the plugin hasn't been updated since 2012, the Developers are quite active here and have helped me fix one or two errors. You posted on May 23rd, and four days later have fully abandoned the project in favor of an alternative. Did you try contacting the company through their website, http://www.vbsso.com/ ?

Good news! Fresh vBSSO release coming out in a few days.

It looks like your vBulletin engine tries to create new user two times in backgroud. Fisrt time this user creates successfully (confirmation email came), but it fails on second time and hence an error comes. It could be some conflict plugin. You can contact http://vbsso.com/request-new-feature/, describe them your issue and give them your pluginlist.

Yes, vBSSO has an API. You are free to write vBSSO for your own CMS. You can ask all required documentation via http://vbsso.com/request-new-feature/

Hi,

We are having a strange issues with the login process between vBulletin and Wordpress. It seems that on Chrome and Safari vBulletin members are logged in correctly all at once. As in, vBulliten members are able to post comments on Wordpress blog pages. In Firefox and IE though users are successfully logged in to vBulletin, but not into Wordpress. As in, they can post on vBulliten, but for comments on WP blog pages users are treated as guest.

The one thing I have noticed when testing this is that on Chrome and Safari after pressing submit on the login form you are directed to a page that reads:

"Redirecting... Thank you for logging in"+ <user name>.

In IE and Firefox you are not shown that page. I have looked through the header info and it looks like on Chrome you just get a Post to that page, and in firefox you get a post followed quickly by a Get. I don't know if that's relivent.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Thanks for the quick response! I gave it shot. Unfortunately adding the policy didn't seem to change anything. It may still be the issue. It's possible I goofed up the implementation. But since adding an xml privacy policy made chrome start throwing a "The site's security certificate is not trusted!" warning. I'm going to hold off on trying it again at the moment.

Actually, it's working for accounts which already had vB and MediaWiki accounts. New vB accounts (through MediaWiki or not) can register and those accounts work on vB, but can't log in to MediaWiki. It shows the "thank you for logging in", but then just shows the IP address in MediaWiki.

This is still my issue, as well. We only have one member registered on MediaWiki (the primary admin), and that account works fine. All other accounts still show as not being logged in on MediaWiki, but logged in on vBulletin.
