Thank you for the offer. I may do that, but first I wish to learn how it works.

How do users get added to Wordpress from the VB installation with VBSSO? I wish to understand how it happens. Does VBSSO copy a user id when they access the Wordpress site, or must it be done manually?

Yes, you are right - vBSSO plugin copies a user id when they access the Wordpress site.

(nothing changed in the settings, so not sure why this started)..

see log below:




Update 1: Downgraded to php 5.5, and its working again. so looks like a php version issue...
ndahiya

ps: still hoping for mediawiki 1.25 support....

hi Xeagle,
does vbsso v1.5 fully support php 5.6? 1.4.16 did not work (as above), and the changelog does not mention this as a fix...

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a proper vBSSO activity with 5.6 php for Mediawiki. You should do an downgrade to the previous php version (please review additional information at http://vbsso.com/getting-started/vbs...ted-platforms/)

xeagle,
the supported platform page incorrectly mentions mediawiki 1.25 as working. however, only upto mediawiki 1.24 works with 1.0.2.

php 5.5 does work, but is not listed as supported version.

PLEASE update to work with php 5.6 and mediawiki 1.25/1.26... Thanks!!

I have used your 'report an error' page 3 times now, and each time it says 'thank you' and I never get a confirmation or response. It is not going to spam, and the email is correct. I don't know if your email is having issues or not.

So I will also post here:

I have noticed some problems in Wordpress, and also on my server since I installed VBSSO on my site at http://www.gotmead.com.

1) When the log in widget is placed in the right column it show up on top of the search function in the column, I am guessing there is some HTML issues in the login box, all my other widgets have no problems.
2) when I log out of Wordpress, it still shows me logged in.
3) I am currently getting many 'too many connections' errors from my server, and I have increased connections by a large number. I did not have this issue before installing VBSSO. Is there a fix for this?

Thank you for all the information you have provided. We will try to reproduce the issue and keep you informed about it.
Apparently, your server problems may depend on how your web server or extension are set up.

We hope that this has not caused you any inconvenience and contact you if we need more information.

Great mod!

Have had this running for a week on www.tooraktimes.com.au and www.tagg.com.au and it works great for members who log onto TT (vB4) first, they automatically sign in,sign up to TAGG (WP) site.

Does it also work the other way around or do I have to use the WP plugin to achieve that?
