Identical to this Mod here, but now for the Vbulletin 3.8 line.
DOES NOT WORK FOR Vbulletin 4.x

This version probably no longer works for Wordpress 3.x. I have started developing this product over and have released the NEW version here:

http://www.lampwrights.com/showthread.php?t=41




This mod bridges your Vbulletin users over to Wordpress. You can also use Vbulletin as your comment engine instead of the spammy one built into Wordpress. You can display the comments inline in your post. You need not use the comment feature, if your only interested in sharing users.

You can map your Vbulletin Usergroups to Wordpress Usergroups and those users will then be recognized as registered Wordpress users.

For example, user "Joe" registers at your forum and logs in. Joe then clicks on your Wordpress page. Joe is instantly added to the Wordpress user base with the permissions you set for his usergroup. In otherwords, if a user comes over belonging to the "Registered User" group, you can select that he is placed in the Wordpress "Subscriber" usergroup.

If you change a users group from vbulletin, it will automatically change in Wordpress.

Requirements:
  • DOES NOT and WILL NEVER support Wordpress MU.
  • Wordpress and Vbulletin scripts must reside on the same physical server.
  • Wordpress and Vbulletin must use the same domain name.
  • Stable Wordpress Version greater than or equal to 2.7.
  • DOES work for Vbulletin 3.7.
  • Does work for vBulletin 3.8.
Limitations:
  • Does not work for 4.x. Why? Because VB 4.x does not work for me. If they ever make that product worth a shit, I might support it.
  • Please don't ask if it works for any BETA versions of Vbulletin. I do not know and will not convert this to the latest version of VB (whatever it is at the time you are reading this) until the version is released as non-beta.
  • Does not work with XMLRPC.
  • Chances are, this will not work when VB and Wordpress are located in different sub domains. I.E. forum.yoursite.com - blog.yoursite.com. Cookie issue.
  • I did the best I could in determining your forums file path with the script. There may be certain script setups that cannot find the file path properly, in which case you may get errors that the script cannot find or open /config.php. If this is the case, please HARDCODE your ABSOLUTE path to the forum in vbridge.php.

    To do this find:


    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

    And uncomment the last line, and change the path to your forums path:


    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Common Mistakes When Installing:
  • Using two different host names causes problems. If your forum URL contains www.yourdomain.com, then your wordpress blog URL MUST contain the www. part of www.yourdomain.com also. This goes for any other host name. Browsers are finnecky when it comes to cookies (as they should be).
  • Editors generally EDIT, not write. In Wordpress, editors don't show up in the post author drop down. This has nothing to do with this plugin, that is Wordpress code.
  • Make sure you DO NOT create a subdirectory for this plugin in the wp-content/plugins directory. Just upload it directly there..
  • If you do not map users before you turn auto-integrate on, the plugin has no idea whether your allowed into the dashboard.
  • If you all of a sudden can't login to the dashboard, see the above two common mistakes.
  • FOLLOW the directions and make a test post first. Being in a rush and not testing will most likely turn out bad for you.
UPDATES:

Changelog is included in download, here is the most recent changes:

3/09/2009
  • Added code to process scheduled posts
  • Addressed code where links and images would not show up properly in VB
  • Added new table called vb_forumid for scheduled posts
  • Reduced redundant calls when dealing with forum excerpts

Hi,

Are there any issues with upgrading Wordpress to version 3.0 after this bridge has been installed? I don't really want to try it without some proof/steps to take to make things run smoothly.

Regards,
James

Hey,

Due to an irritating lack of reply (Which seems to be quite the norm on this website for anything other than a simple question...), I went and upgraded blindly.

It worked fine, no problems upgrading. Backup everything first though!

FYI, it's working fine on my Gambling Forum.
I don't have the articles posting into the forum but the user integration seems to be working fine.

The upgrade is smooth but there is a problem when logging out via WP.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_clearcookie() in .../wp-content/plugins/vbbridge.php on line 261

The old cookie call is depreciated.

Solution:

In vbbridge.php, find wp_clearcookie()

change to

wp_set_auth_cookie( $user_id, $remember, $secure);

Question - I posted an entry on WordPress and checked off "Do not post on forum", then I went back an edited it, but when I did that, I didn't select any option for using vB as comments. So now when you view the article on WordPress, it has the links to a thread that doesn't exist. Is there a way to remove it after that's happened?

Just installed with a new WP 3.0 installation and a new VB 4.0.4 pl1 installation. Works well - except for the headers message when saving settings for vbbridge.

I also have feedwordpress installed - which does not post into the forums.. i'm going to try and figure out why probably in the next few days..

It's just a testing site... feel free to register and play around.

Hey, guys. I have an issue when trying to login via WordPress. A pinkish/redish box appears on load and shakes. This is the message within it:

"ERROR: The username field is empty."

Is there any way to fix this? Another query I have is how I can go about getting a vBulletin log in field on my WordPress page. I'm interested in showing if any new private messages are available, as well as the user's avatar. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

EDIT: Nevermind. This plugin is extremely unstable, no offense to the author. Thanks for the effort and share though.

I've found a FIX for the flash uploader problem for Wordpress 3.0:

On vbbridge.php at 47 line find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and replace it with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

When I access the address of the Wordpress admin, I have to put the username and password on the forum and it redirects me to the usercp.

How to fix?

PS.:

Wordpress 3.0 - vBulletin 3.8.5

skariko,

It's not working. I tried flash uploader and at 100%, it display "HTTP error" in red

Browser uploader is working fine.
