I have 5 separate vB 4.2.2 forums on 4 different domains. They have different memberships on each although some common members between them If I understand correctly, this will let me link them with a single signon. Is there any risk to doing this? Eg, database corruption, membership loss, etc. Does it matter that two of my sites use Photopost Pro?

Also, are there specific directions for how to do this anywhere, or do I just install the product on all 5 vB sites and figure it out from there.

We have a similar server configuration. Starting with the vBSSO version that introduced the www alias feature, we had the same problem as you. We fixed it by patching vBSSO, so that it detects error 302 when sending requests from vBulletin to Wordpress and tries again with a hardcoded, corrected URL.

We don't want to remove the RewriteRule because it would break thousands of links.

We can assure you that it is safe to use vBSSO with different domains. Latest vBulletin vBSSO release introduces the new feature when vBulletin can act as slave platform in case of connecting it to another vBulletin platform. So, you can easily install the product on all 5 vB sites and figure it out from there. But, please note this feature does not work properly in IE browser yet. Our team is engaged and working hard to get this issue fixed ASAP.

I am sorry of this question has already been asked but:
Does this synchronize existing vBulletin members? Meaning that existing members would also be part registered in Wordpress?

Thanks

So that's a yes, thanks.

One more question: are users who login via Facebook connect through the forum also synchronized?

Please let me know. I find this plugin to be exactly what I need if it does.
Also, do you have paid installation services?

Thanks

How do you recommend we update to 1.0.2? Should we just copy the files via SFTP or use the install feature in Joomla (update option doesn't see an update)? But if we use the Install feature the following error occurs:

Component Install: Another component is already using directory: <path to directory>

Suggestions?
