Vbulletin/LifeType Cross Registration App

vB Version: 3.5.3 Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 4
Released: 08 Mar 2006 Last Update: Never Downloads: 17
Not Supported  

This extension bridges vbulletin with LifeType, an open source blog network application. (Note: LifeType recently changed its name; its previous name was Plog. If you are ever searching for LifeType related stuff, you may want to keep that in mind )

What the extension does:

Automatically registers users for a lifetype account with the same username and password as their vbulletin account when they sign up through vbulletin. (So be sure to have your LifeType registration links point to vbulletin to have full integration. )

This does NOT bridge session IDs -- registration only.

How to implement the extension:
  • Upload the PHP file
  • Upload the xml file
  • Add the extension

And voila! You're good to go.

Don't forget to customize your vbulletin templates and emails accordingly if you install this.

Ah, sorry, found the answer within the readme!

I just asked, what happen to users that are already registered! But there is a importscript in the package.

Couple of problems I found running the import script:

1) There is no support for a Vbulletin database prefix
2) The script cannot cope with user names with an apostrophe in them as its used as a delimiter in the select statements. To correct this you can use the mysql_real_escape_string function

Well, Maybe im dumb or its my flu, but I still dont know how this extension work. It registers users to Your vB lifetype blog, or does it create individual blogs for the new registered members?

It registers your Vb users into the lifetype database and creates an empty blog for them ready to edit.

My question remains unanswered, what is the FINAL url each member gets as BLOG?


yoursite.com/blog/user1
yoursite.com/blog/user2
yoursite.com/blog/user3?

sorry for the delay in responding, for some reason i did not get email notifications for this

COBRAws, the final URL depends on how you have it configured in lifetype. it could be

username.yourdomain.com

or it could be

yourdomain.com/username

in order to use subdomains you need wildcard subdomains enabled.

RogerL, thanks for your bug-spotting; let me see if I can get those fixed.

I am trying to do this across two different sites that are on the same server, but it's not working. I was told the problem is with the config file. If anyone knows how I can fix this, I'd be quite grateful!

Alternatively if anyone wants to get paid to do it just PM me -- I've put up a posting in the services forum.
