vB4 forum & Wordpress as frontpage/blog

Hi all,

I have been struggling with vB CMS and vB Blogs and decided to use Wordpress as frontpage/blog solution. I found a bridge (http://www.lampwrights.com/showthread.php?t=41) and some instructions to make it work as frontpage (http://www.the8thlegion.com/threads/...etin4-Homepage)

However, I have not found any clarity about these few points, and I'm sure some of you must have experience with this, so I hope you guys/girls can help me out here.

- will i install vB and Wordpress in a different database, yes or no? or just prefixed in the same db, and for what reason.
- will i install vB and Wordpress in the same directory (in my case the website root), or will that be a problem? (i run an active community so i can't just reinstall vB if you know what i mean)



Thanks for all of your time,
Daniel


PS: also found this link, the latest post said i have to do it in the same directory (https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/show...rdpress-bridge)
but won't the two index.php files (and maybe other overlapping files) conflict then?

Sorry for bumping, but can anyone please share their experience with me?

I am at work right now so I do not have server access but from what I can remember, I used softalicious to install wordpress on the same domain as my forum.

Softalicious automatically creates a database and a username to go with your wordpress installation's database.

If you don't have softalicious then you would have to create your database and add it to your main database and create a user and assign it to that database that you created for wordpress.

When assigning a user to your wordpress database check everything except create view.

----

if you install wordpress into your forum domain it would overwrite your forum index.php. Go ahead and save the contents of your forum index.php.

You could simply just create a copy or rename your forum index.php

When wordpress creates the index.php as you install it, then you can do the index.php edits that I outlined in the thread.

Hi,
i also use wordpress as CMS. I put the wordpress-installation in a folder (like www.forumblabla.de/wordpress) and use a different database for wordpress.
Next, i installed this mod:
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...ighlight=vbsso
Everything works fine, this mod catches the avatars from vbulletin if someone leaves a comment.
Hope that helps,
greetings,
Peter
