Patch to vbWikiStandard for vb 3.7 & mediaWiki 1.12
Mod Version: 1.00, by Michael Morris (Member) Michael Morris is offline
Developer Last Online: Jun 2009 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.7.2 Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 24
Released: 10 Jul 2008 Last Update: 10 Jul 2008 Downloads: 109
Not Supported Code Changes Re-usable Code  

The following is a hack of an existing plugin the author abandoned and which stopped working when vbulletin upgraded to 3.7 and mediaWiki changed to version 1.12 - the two of which happen to be the latest versions of their respective software. The file change below will allow the hack to work with vb 3.7 and Media Wiki 1.12. If you are using older versions of either I would recommend using the elfMage's product in it's original form.

You will need to start by installing MediaWiki seperately and then uploading vbWikiStandard and following its instructions. Here is a link to that product.

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=136242

Note the requirements are a bit higher - mediaWiki 1.12 requires PHP 5. This mod has only been tested on vb 3.7

Once you have completed the instructions of that product open file arcane_vbulletin_core.php - its part of the vbWiki package and find this code:


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

Replace with this code.


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

I have tested this for 2 weeks on EN World, a site that gets about 22,000 hits / day and it appears stable. We've had a few isolated instances of users stating they are getting logged off, but I believe that's because they are running cookie blockers.

Do not attempt using this hack with vbWikiPro - for optimization I removed the loading of several libraries pro requires. If there is enough interest in this bridge still I will consider wholly rewriting the bridge to tighten up integration further. In the interim though this seems to work.

I will provide what support I can but be warned the original hack has been abandoned and outside the changes I've made in this mod your guess is as good as mine.

Michael, we require all mods to be in files, could you please do this? You can simply put the instructions into a text file and attach it.

Thanks,
Dismounted

I"m running the pro version on Vb 3.7.2 for over a year.
That said, I haven't updated my mediawiki to the latest version since I don't know if it's worth it.

3.7.2 hasn't been out for a year. I'm using the pro version as well, though, and have upgraded to vB 3.7.2 (last weekend). Using Mediawiki 1.11.0

I've been running the vbWiki Pro for a while, but didn't realise there was a lite version of the script.

What is the chance of being able to create a backwards compatibility for this script?

vBWiki is dead and will not longer be supported or saled. Search for a Alternative!

BTW - nice Idea - but in fact that vBWiki is dead i believe this "Bridge" is useless. A Importer from vBWiki -> MediaWiki will make more Sense.

vbWiki *is* mediaWiki. All the bridge does is keep the user names in sync.
