This is indeed a magnificent plugin... Is there a way to merge the search in wordpress and vbulletin so that they naturally display threads from vbulletin and wordpress in the search? If someone searches wordpress they would expect that the forum is queried too but it doesn't work that way currently.

Of course the results should be separated or identified somehow but both applications should be searched.

It imports email address only yet stats its importing birthday and location data but doesn't. Then it doesn't pull the avatar either. Plus everyone has a google account so open ID should be an option too.

Thank you for your feedback!

Unfortunately, the vBulletin can not upload the avatars from FB by default. But we can implement such feature. The synchronization of locations - is a well-known registered bug in vBulletin. Other synchronization bugs need a further investigation.
Also, it is possible to implement an the authorization based on a Google service.

If you are interested in such functionality we can discuss it in more detail. Also we can discuss the integration of the search features on vBulletin and Wordpress. Could you please request a feature request at http://vbsso.com/request-new-feature/

By the way, this is an excellent plugin and its extensions to both Wordpress and MediaWiki is something we use everyday.
Thank you for your feedback!

Could you please provide a more detailed description of a particular feature that you want to implement? We can discuss it in more detail.

yes... of course. I will try to do it today but i have a lot on my plate so it may be a few days before I can. I'd really like to do this in a way where others can contribute their ideas too.

Glad to see such a this nice plugin exists!

We have a very large vBulletin forum with more than 200,000 registered users and a joomla website with daily 20 contents and 10,000 unique visitors. We want to have single sign on on them but there are lots of duplications. How your plugin handle this problem?

Also, What about usergroup permissions? As you know in Joomle we have editor,author, manager and etc but in vB we've defined lots of custom usergroups with different access level to forums and moderation tools.

Thanks In advance.

To resolve this issue please check if user's email and loginname are identical (on both platforms).
But, if the issue persists, please, contact us again.

In case of duplication you might see an error message.

The only case when vBSSO plugin works properly is when UserName=>Email on both platforms. In case when user has not been registered the vBSSO plugin will automatically create new user and the system will work correctly.

Whether you are looking to resolve a synchronization issue our team provides a variety of assisted support services. If you would like to implement this feature, we can discuss it in more detail.

You are right. User Group synchronization is not implemented for Joomla for now. Such feature was implemented only for Wordpress platform. If you would like to implement this feature, we can discuss it in more detail too. You can submit a service request.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact our team.

Thank you for using vBSSO,

Yes it was a new wordpress installation with only one demo/wordpress admin account, I just checked it..users are there with ditto same vbullletin names and emails but still we all admins are getting this annoying error:

We are sorry, we are not able to process the operation further. Your account should satisfy the single sign-on requirements. Please contact your administrator to solve this issue.
Edit: This is super weird, it's working in internet explorer but not in firefox and chrome. I deleted all the cookies, history, cache and found that it's only working in internet explorer, in other browsers I am getting the same error which I stated above.
