Hi,

I've recently been having a problem with vbsso, using vBulletin and Wordpress. Basically people are getting stuck in loops. If you load up the homepage, which is Wordpress you're logged out, so you click login and it takes you to the forum as it should where you're already logged in so it doesn't try to log you in to WP. This means people can't login to WP at all as VB thinks you're already logged in.

Weirdly I found that going to the dashboard by manually typing the url forces another login through vBulletin. Equally so does going into the admincp on the forum. But that's not an option for my members as they're not admins.

If you've got any ideas, I would be grateful for the help,

Thanks

I've sent 4 requests on there using two different email addresses over the last 4 days. I don't get a confirmation email or anything so I don't know if they are getting through or not.

I have a question about your software. I have members who have registered on both my joomla and vbulletin platforms. When I had Joomla 2.5 I used another bridge and it duplicated these users across platforms. Since then lots of people have created new userids on VBulletin and Joomla. But I only have member input on VBulletin. Should I just delete all my Joomla users (except admins) before installing you product? Hope this is not confusing.
Thank you.

It is not mandatory to delete users before installing the vBSSO product. But note, please, vBSSO works only for registered user on both - MASTER and SLAVE platforms (in your case, JOOMLA and VB).

Thank you very much for your reply.

How does your SSO handle duplicate userids? For example, if someone logs in through the SSO using their VBulletin username and the exact same username already exists in Joomla, but it is not them, does the SSO MASTER sync the Joomla password to match with the Vbulletin username's password so there is just one userid across both platforms or does the SSO just ignore the existing Joomla userid and create a new Joomla userid with the same name using the VBulletin password?

Yes, the vBSSO ignores the existing Joomla user id; when you press the Joomla registration link it redirects you to vBulletin and creates an account there. Then vBSSO passes the user data to Joomla after that the user will be created there accordingly.
