Embed vBulletin into WordPress

Dear Experts,

Looking for a good example, with source code, of embedding vBulletin into a WordPress page - besides using an iframe, something more clean.

The example must include details on how to remove some of the VB components that would not be necessary when embedded in the WP page - for example, remove header and footer, move the login further down etc.

Thank you.

People in the vbulletin community have create some mods that might help with the integration:

But what you're asking for is really, really difficult.  Unless the other product is designed to work with WordPress from the get-go, you are looking at a lot of pain when trying to force them together, iframes or not.

You might be better off using a forum designed for WordPress...

Jason,

Close... But looks like the bridge, much like with vbSSO, does account-level integration as well... We just want to integrate the pages... Kind of like the forums integration at macobserver.com.

How did they do it? Customized pages?

Thanks.

On a plane now, so kinda hard to get in depth and check.  I'll try to respond later tonight.

That site is running Expression Engine which may have a forum module available or built-in, much like WordPress has its own forum plugins.

If you are hell-bent on pounding the square peg into the round hole then the way to do it would be via the API: http://members.vbulletin.com/api/ and calling only what you need to appear in WordPress page templates.

Looks like no quick and easy solution, so therefore opting to write something on top of the VB API... Thank you :)
