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

My English is very bad. I can not read all the messages.

Could you tell me if this works for vbulletins 4.1? I installed and ready?

Thanks.

just set this up on a new WP 3.0.4 and vB 4.1.1 site. The user login and logout is working fine, and WP posts are being carried over to the forum with no problem.

I can't seem to get the comments to carry over though. Anyone have any idea what could be wrong?

I have not supported this modification for several reasons:
  • I didn't need it anymore. Plain and simple.
  • I am a busy IT contractor who has a FULL schedule and just do not have time to donate to this project. (nor do I have time to support it for YOU even for $$)
  • VB 4.x is a disappointment on a major scale for me. I refuse to support it. I noticed 99% of the questions here lately are about that. No it does not work with 4.x, and if it does work with it, it was not my intention. I am so pissed off at IB about what in my opinion is an outright concerted effort to destroy vBulletin that I could care less if it works with it or not. Maybe they will fix it someday, but I can only hold my breath for so long
This all being said, one of my clients is now in need of this to work with 3.8 and has sponsored me start over on it. He has agreed to allow me to release this work to the public, however not here. For now, the only support I will be offering on this is at my website:

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

Please make sure you READ the statement first because the new product is a little different but still as always: free.

Thanks for the update. I couldn't agree more with vB 4 either. I will not be switching to vB 4 ever!

FYI I have been using the original bridge for over a year now and it works perfectly on vB 3.8.6 PL1 and WP 3.0.4

Blank page issue (again...)

Hi,

I have used the vbulletin/wordpress bridge on my website for two months now (wordpress 2.9.2 with vBulletin 4.0.8). I wouldn't say I had no issue to make it work but I managed to do it. The wordpress source code is hosted at the root of the web server (domain.com) and the vbulletin files are located at domain.com/forum. Both wordpress and vbulleting db tables are in the same database.

Recently, I have moved the website from one web server (server01) to a new one (server02). I just updated the config.php file with the new database information and everything worked fine.

The old server (server01) will no longer be used (to many issues with the hardware). It was hosting my 2 DNS servers for the domain (domain.com). Yesterday, I started to move my nameservers to the new server (server02). Since then, the vbulletin/wordpress bridge (when activated) started displaying "Blank" page ( if I turn the plugin off, the wordpress pages display correctly).

Right now, my new DNS server ip seems to be propagated worldwide. Is there a link between the new DNS servers and the fact that the bridge is not working since then ?

If anybody knows how to fix this, it would be really appreciated.

Thanks.

I have released a plugin for wordpress that works great along side this plugin.

What it does is add a vbulletin welcome block widget to wordpress, so you can see 'new posts', 'last visit', private messages, login and logout all from wordpress. Bridging the final gap.

You can find links and screenshots on my website: http://www.whatsuplift.net/

enjoy

What features does it have that this bridge does not?

I did have to change one function call that was deprecated in WP 3.1. What will it break? Will it corrupt my forums?

Will pay a developer to take this mod an make it work with vb 3.8.x and WP 3.1 without breaking the visual editor of WP or anything else .

Hi,
We switched servers and all of a sudden started getting this error on vb 3.8:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare get_userdatabylogin() (previously declared in /home1/thelsite/public_html/wp-includes/pluggable.php:166) in /home1/thelsite/public_html/wp-content/plugins/functions_vbbridge.php on line 33

Some other users have reported the error before as well but couldn't find any resolution, please help....
