vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (13 votes - 4.92 average) Installs: 110

Not Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files  

This hack provides single sign-on capability for MediaWiki using your vBulletin users. You must ensure your cookie path in Admin CP is set to '/' for this to work. Also, I have not tested this if your wiki and your forums are on different subdomains - but as long as your have your cookie domain set properly it *should* work. This is not a user bridge - it is a complete single sign-on using your vBulletin user repository.

The install process has been extremely simplified in version 2.x of this product. You only have to edit LocalSettings.php, import a product, and change a setting in your Admin Control Panel. It's been completely packaged as a vBulletin product - unlike the previous hacked up version, heh. I didn't originally plan to release this so I designed it so it worked - not so it could be redistributed. I searched high and low for a functional MediaWiki bridge - almost bought NuHIT's product, and then realized it had been abandoned for over a year.

This hack no longer requires an edit to class_core.php.

I'll do my best to support it, but I can make no promises.

This thread is for discussion of this mod on vB 3.7.x. For vB 3.8.x, please use the MediaWiki/vBulletin Single Sign-On 3.8 thread

Demo of plugin in action: MyMMOGames - Multiplayer Gaming and Media Community

Also, if you use memcached - ensure you do not cache sessions. If you do, restart it at least once a week. If you don't, you'll end up with invalid session errors out of MediaWiki.

MediaWiki Version: 1.11.0-1.14.0

I'm hoping that I didn't miss anything when I tried to "package" it for redistribution. If I did, just post a note here and I'll get to it ASAP.

Also, that "demo" site is a live, production site so if you must test the SSO - please do so on your user page or user talk page - not the wiki articles. Thanks!

What advantage does this have over this?

As well, I already have that other mod, would I be able to transfer over to this mod easily, if I find out that it is better?

Supposedly, vBWikiStandard is a complete integration package; mine is not. vBWS hasn't been developed/supported for over a year by the original author and I didn't feel it made sense to use that product on my production servers; thus the reason mine was created.

In all honesty, if yours works and you can still upgrade your vB without worrying about breaking it, I'd use that. I'm not a fan of fixing things that aren't broken. I read pages and pages of problems out of that mod here and on NuHIT's forums and decided it wasn't for me.

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !vbseourl=
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(admincp/|modcp/|chat|cron|wiki/)
RewriteRule ^(.*\.php(/.*)?)$ vbseo.php?vbseourl=$1 [L,QSA]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^(admincp|modcp|clientscript|cpstyles|images|wiki)/
RewriteRule ^(.+)$ vbseo.php?vbseourl=$1 [L,QSA]

Please post a url to your forum and wiki. Also, what versions of vB and MW are you using? I don't think its vBSEO as I use this on 2 forums with vBSEO.

Posted from my Blackberry, please excuse spelling.

To those posting support requests, I cannot help you if I don't have links to your forum and wiki. Also, if you see me not online for a few weeks don't worry - I get real time notifications of replies to this thread via Blackberry so I'll drop in as I see posts. The project will remain active as I use this product on my own site.

This looks like a very promising addon. However, do you support the login from an wiki which resides on the same server but under a different domain?
