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

should solve the issue temporarily.
Because I'm not the only person on the site who writes articles. I don't want to have to do that for everyone that writes articles.

A real fix for this issue would be nice.

Can you post your comment.php file here? It differs from theme to theme.

I have tons of error messages when I turn the plugin on.

All I did was the following:
1. FTP the documents to the wordpress plugins folder (not in a subdirectory, straight in that folder, as told in the read me).
2. Turn on plugin

The plugin doesn't seem to know which databases to use for WP and which for Vb my developer says.

I haven't read the entire thread but I somewhere read that you need to tell it (somehow) how user levels correspond in WP and Vb. I am not sure this is before turning the plugin on or before turning auto-integrate on.

Is there someone here who I can pay a small fee to look into the problem?

would it be overkill to install thus purely to have it post your WP blog articles to a vBulletin forum ?

Nope, you can do that.

FYI my problems are solved now thanks to the help of user Amjadz4.

Can recommend him! I had a plethora of WP plugins installed and he indicated where the conflicts where, how to substitute the plugins or to correct the errors, and also gave the solution on how to set up the databases correctly. All of this at a fair fixed price!

Will definately use him again.

Edit: Also a huge thanks to the makers of this fantastic plugin!

I am successfully using it with VB3.8.4 with WP 2.8.4, and it works for sure

Regarding your login to wp-admin, you can remove the plugins folder and it should allow you to login i guess .because it would deactivate this plugin or the hardway would be to directly go into wp-options and disabling the plugins..

Let me start by saying this is a cool mod and amjadz4 is a great person to work with. I recently changed my hosting account from shared to VPS now the plugin is making site blank and I don't know why.

Same host, simply just upgraded my account to VPS, all login info the same. Any suggestions?

can someone please help me out?

this mod generally seems broken to me as I followed the instructions perfectly yet there are massive errors.

here is the one I currently have: Warning: require_once(/home/content/g/h/e/ghealy44/html/forums/includes/functions_misc.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/g/h/e/ghealy44/html/twitchthesticks/wp-content/plugins/vbbridge.php on line 702


when I click on any link after turning this plug in "on" this is what i get:

cannot include /home/content/g/h/e/ghealy44/html/forums/global.php. You should check your path! Turning Plugin Off



any help would be greatly appriciated, I currently have no idea where to even start in fixing this mess.
