All modules are now in separate packages
to add module just download the module file
and unzip it in the /components/com_connector/modules folder
if not exists, create one

Online Demo running with vbulletin module (SOAP)

http://www.c4u.to

HOWTOs:

switching from vbridge to com_connector
creating own modules
patching joomla.php file himself


Component Information and description
This Component is only for the connection from joomla -> application
at the moment are following things supported:
common login
global changing password
global changing username/email
synchronistion of the users ( by first login or registration )

That does i need to run this component?

for this component alone you needs only joomla 1.0.x
it should run with PHP4 und PHP5(tested)

some modules like vbulletin_soap can have own requirements (needs php5 + SOAP extension )


That does this component do?

this component allow you to connect different applications to joomla over SOAP/XMLRPC, SQL Connects ( other methods are posible too )
You should use this component if you wants to have common login with an aplications ( which based on cookie login (session to, because it use cookie to store a sessionid ))
it is posible to create own moduless to connect any applications

How to install
1.
download and extract the files_to_replace.zip" file
move all files from "upload" folder in your joomla root folder

2.
login into joomla administration and install the "com_connector.zip"
using joomla component installer

How to use
go to "Administration/Components/Connector"
click to "New"


Title: title/name of the module
Module: Choose a Module like "vbulletin"
URL: is a link to the application ( not to the module !! )
Add User to Joomla: if the user not exists in joomla he will be added
Add User to App.: if the user dont exists in the connected application it will be added
Display Mode: Wrapped = in iframe, Not Wrapped = redirect to application


Click on Save
you will be redirected to module settings
this settings can be different in every module


after you have added a data, you can create a menu link

go to Menu config, create on New and select "Connector Item"
in next dialog select you application and click to save

done

1. this module dont need direct access to vbulletin database

vbulletin can be on other domain/server

2. the password type if joomla user will not be changed

you can easy uninstall this module and joomla will work with out a problems, by vbridge noone of users can login more if you uninstall the module

3. you can connect more that one forum to joomla

4. this connector can be used to connects other applications
i will release some modules soon

The vBridge from joomla.com is a widely used and excepted bridge to connect vBulletin to Joomla CMS. This is a interesting hack but in my mind your abit late to get this widely used. For people that are on the "wall" about this hack and vBridge, there are a few things to keep in mind. vBridge has been in dev. alot longer then this and its easy to install and uninstall. The one downside to vBridge is the joomla versions and the hack, you have to install the correct version of joomla to work with the hack. I like this hack, but i feel like i can get better support from vBridge and Predator(creator).

vBridge board :
http://forum.joomla.org/index.php?board=174.0

I just think i should give some opinion on this because i have 3 sites running vBridge and 5 test sites and its a great hack. I have tested this com mod and its good.

I dont mean to down your Mod in anyway leonsio i just am a person that asks alot of questions and i know things like this help. Keep it up maybe in future versions i can try to adapt it more for public tryouts.

if you have installed vbridge once
you cannot run joomla with out it any more, because vbridge alter the joomla user table and change type of the password hashes

you can run vbridge only if its on same domain, with this connector you can connect more that one forum with joomla at once

i know vbridge very well, i have created some hacks for it ( look at the release post, you will find some changes by me )

but have told with predator he dont have time to develop his component

http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,21763.0.html solution to switch from vbridge to this hack
