Combine vBulletin and WordPress with Single Sign-On

Single sign-on Word Press and vBulletin has to be one of forum publishers most requested combinations… Just mention vBulletin with WordPress on and scads of people ask how they can combine the programs. Well here’s a modification that allows the two programs to work together.

vBlog was a big step forward but for many forum publisher, it doesn’t offer the flexibility their looking for and have chosen to turn it off and run a WordPress Blog instead.  The problem with that strategy is that your vBulletin users can’t comment on your WordPress blog, unless they create a second account. That additional step will at best will prevent members from commenting…At worst, it will drive members away from your website.

You can prevent some of this user defection by using single signup that that lets users post comments in both WordPress and vBulletin, while only signing in once. vBSSO, is the vBulletin plugin that will connect vBulletin to WordPress with a common login. If you have never heard of it, I would suggest you try it out, since it is an open-source project and supports a wide range of platforms.

More details on this open source project are available from their website. Check it out and keep your users involved with a single sign-on vBulletin / WordPress combination.
