Well now, this is a very interesting project.

From the looks of the drop downs on the request feature page, it seems that Mediawiki is on the agenda for a plugin in the future. One thing I am interested in though is if it'd be able to connect an already existing user database (from Mediawiki, or any other system) to the vBulletin database (and allow for a single sign-on), so that people who already have accounts on both would simply be linking their accounts, rather than creating a whole new account. One thing that was a dealbreaker for us with similar modifications in the past is that we use an addon to allow our forum members to change their username, which doesn't work when the addon only matches exact usernames. We'd be looking for something which matches on the forum side based on the user ID number.

Agreed. So far the plugin is quite good to start a network up quickly from scratch based on vBulletin and WordPress platforms.

From other hand we are in internal brainstorm period of thinking to connect already existing accounts and letting users to change their username and email address in platforms.

If somebody opens to share the vision how they would like to see this, that's greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

vBSSO actually hides user profile inputs to change password in WordPress. In meantime user is free to change its own password in vBulletin and use it further.

vBSSO doesn't touch passwords in WordPress and single sign-on is relied on passwords stored in vBulletin users database only. Thereby, the passwords in WordPress stay untouched / unchanged as they were prior vBSSO plugin is activated.

You did create accounts and did not specified email address for each registered one. Make sure you have email specified, additionally have no duplicated accounts (accounts with multiple similar email addresses) and your administrative WP account matches to your vBulletin account (username and email).

Thank you,

No logs produced in vbsso/logs (loging level "ALL")
EDIT:

not quiet sure about this error since line 4 in forum.php is the commented vB versin and licence number?!

other notes: Admin and Mod CP are in custom named folders. vBSSO's "admincp" folder has been renamed accordingly.

Other mods installed:

Mod-Mall.com Remember Me 1.0.0

So does that mean existing users are automatically enabled in wordpress?

I wanted to make sure that this is 100% compatible with wordpress plugins and themes.

vBSSO doesn't support custom named "admincp" folders originally, but, please be patient and new update of vBSSO is coming within a few days where these issues are taken care of.

Right. If person registers or logs in to vBulletin, having the same email address and username registered previously in WordPress, he is automatically connected.

In case if account doesn't exist in WordPress, vBSSO creates it automatically in WordPress based on vBulletin user profile and all themes and plugins are fully compatible to work for this user.

Thank you,

Thnks
It pops up because you have account duplicates in your forum's users database. There are two options how you can resolve this:
  1. Merge accounts through AdminCP -> Users -> Merge Users.
  2. Or just delete unused account with the similar email address.

Thank you,
