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

Put this in your vbbridge.php file (can be at the top):


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

After you have refreshed your site you can comment that line out again.

Hope this helps! It worked for me.
So that definitely fixed it but it keeps happening... Is it ok to just leave the fix in?

Any idea, what to do is?

Login/Logout/Register box for wordpress frontend

Big Thanks Jafo for the great great plugin !!!

OK, I saw lot's of posts asking for login/logout/avatar etc for wordpress and I needed the same and couldn't find one and so I coded one with my limited php knowledge here it is for you guys...

Credits:
Basically, this is a simpler version of this plugin:
Name: Deluxe vB User login and access control on non vB pages
URL: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=173698

I do not wish to take any credits from the original author - Billspaintball and all credits go to Billspaintball.

Code:

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

Installation:
Just copy-paste that code into your template where you would like to display the login/logout/register box. Style it as per your theme.
Note: The forumurl which you configured while installing vbbridge should not have a trailing slash e.g. http://www.mysite.com/forum.In case it does, then remove / from the code after each $forumurl occurence.

Screenshot:


To Do:
Presently after logout, it redirects to the forum logout screen. It would be nice to redirect the user back to the same page.

Other:
You can check the original plugin and also add some more advanced features to the login box e.g. new posts since last login.

For those of you getting the login blank page for Wordpress go to VB Options on your board and change the cookie setting to / has to be / for it to work. Pulled my hair out over the issue and now it works.

That's what happens. Mine the author shows correctly in draft form, but when I publish it then the Author changes. Also, when I edit someone else's post it changes the author as well.

The only way I've found around is to manually change it in the WP database after the fact.

Obviously, not a good work around.

Did you tried amjad's fix where he told to enable html in your vbulletin forum where the WP posts are being copied ?

Help - not working.

Here's what I did.

1) put functions_vbbridge.php, functions_wysiwyg2.php, and vbbridge.php into the wp-contents/plugins directory.
2) set vb user id and vb user name to guest, forum ID to Comments, forum to http://wpvbtest.dnsalias.com/forums, relative path to /forums, plugin on, utf-8 yes, auto-integrate no, post articles to forum yes, excerpt forum post no.
3) created user guest in vb, created forum Comments
4) did not map any user groups in Users vbridge settings
5) posted on wordpress - found nothing in comments forum
6) created and logged on with new username in vb, went to wordpress page, tried to log in with same credentials, nothing. checked wp - user not there.

Is this correct? I expected the post to show up in vb, and the user to show up in wp. Neithet happened. No errors anywhere that I could see.

Thanks!
Austin
