Thanks!
It's not required, you can have two databases separately and vBSSO supports it well.

Here is the glow host error:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.
1) It shouldn't happen. If it's reproducible if you disable all your other products, please contact vBSSO support, and provide them accurate scenario how to reproduce this and they will help you to resolve this.

2) There should be instructions while vBSSO pops the error how to fix Glowhost plugins and make this working.

Thanks for the information, however, after the installation I'm not able to see "connect to platform". I receive an HTTP: 404 error. I believe this is because I'm on a Windows Server running IIS.

Just to test it out I uploaded everything one more time and installed the xml file again. I still had the same issue. I'm going to remove it from the system. Give me an update if you are able to correct this. I know most use Linux servers, and I've had to deal with issues from a lot of modifications.

Thanks for the effort you put forth.

You are talking about a kind of connection issue that might depend on your configuration or improper install. Please contact vBSSO support team, provide them access to your forum and they will certainly take a look and help you.

in media wiki, if you dont want anyone to see the wiki content without first logging in, you do this to the LocalSettings.php file in the wiki root folder:

$wgGroupPermissions['*']['read'] = false;

but if I do that, the connect platform in admincp goes red, and if you log out you can never log back in.

thoughts?

xeagle,
I seem to have a little issue here. The team got most everything fixed, but I want to bypass: /vbsso/vbsso.php?do=verifyemail after someone registers. I have to have them register on my forum and I've got that much fixed and working, however after they submit registration they should be taken to a page with the default vB message about them receiving an e-mail.

I've attached a pic to show you what I mean. The second picture is what should show. This might be a code change that needs to take place.

Thanks!

Please follow instructions how to install a plugin available at http://vbsso.com/platforms/wordpress/. If you verified that you have already installed in properly, activated, and still experiencing connection issues - contact support team http://vbsso.com/report-an-issue/ and report an issue.

Associated WordPress User Groups
User groups associating visitors from WordPress platform (separated by comma)




And how come my Admin-group from vB4 can login to wordpress, but regular users can't?
(they should be able to comment, while admin should be able to administer)

Eg. the usergroups are completely unclear to me. Thanks for any help or reply in advance!
