Integrate your vBulletin forum with Wordpress.

The lite version of this Wordpress vBulletin bridge allows your Wordpress posts to be posted to vBulletin.

This is a Wordpress plugin that facilitates this functionality. Just install it in your WP plugin folder and set up the path to your vBulletin installation. As long as the forum is on the same server, this works well.

No need to combine the databases. No need to modify core WP files.

It's that easy!

All of your Wordpress posts will be posted in your forum. You will designate a forum to take these posts. If you have sub forums that match the name of the category of the Wordpress post, this plugin will automatically put the post there.

The full version, available at wp-vb-bridge.obscurecloud.com// allows more functionality to fully integrate your Wordpress and vBulletin including:

Wordpress->vB features:
  1. *Registration sync - new users created on WP are automatically created on vB
  2. *New post sync - new WP posts are intelligently posted to the matching forum. There are some controls on which forum they are posted to.
    Options:
    - Posts can be attributed to the user posting or
    - All posts can be attributed to a designated user
  3. *Comment sync - new comments made on WP are posted to the synced forum
  4. *Login sync - when you login or logout of WP, the vB session is created or destroyed at the same time
  5. *Avatar sync - vBulletin avatars are used on WP comments (requires user-photo WP plugin)
  6. *No modification of core WP files!
  7. *No modification of WP config file!
  8. *100% plugin setting based - install the plugin, set your forum path, activate the features you want, enjoy!

vBulletin ->Wordpress features *NEW*
  • *Registration sync - new users created on vB are automatically created on WP
  • *New thread sync - new vB threads are intelligently posted to the matching WP category.
    Options:
    - Only post to designated category
    - Try to match forum name (or any of its parents) to a WP category then post to the designated category if no match is found.
    - Try to match forum name (or any of its parents) to a WP category then create a new WP category
  • *Reply sync - replies made to synced threads will have replies posted to the matching WP post
  • *Login sync - when you login or logout of vB, the WP session is created or destroyed at the same time
  • *No modification of core vB files!
  • *No modification of vB config file!
  • *100% plugin based - this plugin will create the vB plugins needed through the WP plugin settings page!

This is still a work in progress so the code will be updated often.

Feel free to let me know how it works, additional features you'd like, and if you have any problems.

Here is a guide from a user:
Thanks a bunch for putting this together BAJR
Quick Guide.

First unpack the folder into plugins, where all the files and sub folders should reside in [wb-vb] folder.

now in Wordpress Plugins, activate the plugin and then go to Settings --> WP Vb integration


Essentials are as follows: (everything else you can play with!)


1) Path to vBulletin. / means the Vbulletin Forum is in your root folder. ie www.mysite.com/
/forum/ means the Vbulletin Forum is in a folder called forum. ie www.mysite.com/forum/
ALWAYS add the trailing /


2) Activate login sync feature [check box]


3) Activate post sync feature [check box]

4) Forum ID - this is the NUMBER of your desired linked forum ( sub forums are added from this) so look at your vbulletin URL

http://mysite.com/forumdisplay.php?6-The-Forum the ID would be 6


5) vBulletin user id to assign posts to - this is numerical as well. so ID number of who you want to add these too.



6) vBulletin -> Wordpress Settings

Add vBulletin plugins ... click add


7) go back up and click [TEST] - if all is well you should see... vB loaded Plugins - 1|1|1|1|1|1|1



8) SAVE CHANGES...

is there a problem with the security token when you enable the plugins for the forum?
since I have enabled them any inline moderator action in the forum takes me to a security token issue message when I have to login for e.g. deleting a post.

is the wordpress plugin interfearing with this?

hi obscureclouddon

This mod is perhaps the greatest vb wp mod ever! certainly breaths a new life into vbulletin forums wanting a wp frontpage. And you manage to make the both platform communicate in more than just users and posts! insane.

I have a question

Duplicate Content:
With the post and replies being synced on both platforms, will that create duplicate content that is unhealthy for google search? May i ask how best to take advantage of this awesome feature?


thanks and kudos obscureclouddon

Hi,

Thanks for the mod.

Just confused with Instruction # 6. Is there a xml file that we need to import into vBulletin to get this (vBulletin > Wordpres) menu? I don't see one in the files.

Thanks

I do notice that i have to provide the admin password when navigating from the forum to the admincp after the plugin providing the login.

This only happens once. Are you experiencing this more often?

Honestly, my opinion is this: Google wants the rank sites high that are built for the user experience. I do not think that this is much different than the same content being available through a different url in rss format.
While i cannot speak for how their algorithm works, i do not see how this would ding your site under the guidelines of making the site for the user.

Which setting are you referring to?

There are no XML files to upload or configure. All configuration is done throiugh the Settings->Wordpress vBulletin Integration menu.

Hi, since yesterday (bought the pro version) when you login/out from the forum, the page gives a server error or a blank page, and not, like always, the page that advise about the cancellation of all cookies and so on.
In the error log file I'm full of this:

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

. In addition, many users that use tapatalk, are unable to connect. Any help? I am on a dedicated server.

The active assistance that pushed me to buy the pro version suddenly turned off the responses...I'm so disappointed...

I have unfortunatly some problems.

- The Avatar is not working, because i cant activate it in menu. i changed the storeage and installed the user photo plugin.

- Is there a way to post only an excerpt to forum and not the whole text with a "Read more..." Text?

- What is very bad is, that the comments made in forum are not transferred to wordpress. This is very strange.

When these three things you can change, is this the best plugin ive ever seen. For contact check your e-mails. I send you one.

Please contact me.

Hi,

the plugin worked perfectly but recently started with the following error message:

wp-assets require WordPress 2.6 or newer. Please update!

this gets displayed after a user tries to login in over the forum.

i already checked the customer section on your site if there is an update.

im using the latest version of wordpress and vb4
