I want to give your connector a try, now that it is Joomla 1.0.8 compatible, but I am having a problem with some of the settings. Take a look at the attached image.

What do I have to put on these input boxes?

I figure that for Cookie Prefix, I need to use bb, since that is what my vb install uses. But what goes into the SOAP Server URL and Key to access SOAP Server?

Thanks for any help.
SOAP URL is the URL to the vbulletin SOAP Server

http://www.mydomain.tld/vbulletin/soap/server.php?wsdl

the Access key is the Secure key for the soap communication
you can define then in the Vbulletin/admincp/Administration/ Vbulletin SOAP API

@ptmuldoon

has you uploaded all needed files to joomla from the "file_to_replace.zip" file?

common login has nothing to do with the menu link, it should work without it
if it does not work it can have different reasons


@trilljester

its a bug in joomla 1.0.8 ( and it have some more :(, i think the old version was more stable )

open module/mod_login.php

and change

Code: Select all

// ie HTML when already logged in and trying to logout
        if ( $name ) {
                $name = $my->username;
        }
to

Code: Select all

// ie HTML when already logged in and trying to logout
        if ( !$name ) {
                $name = $my->username;

Thanks Leonsio, but I am still lost.  :-\ This is my first time working with SOAP (I DO SHOWER THOUGH lol ) and I can't seem to find this SOAP server on my installation. Do I need to install this API? If so, where can I get it? Can you please be a bit more specific on what I need to do? I would be extremely grateful, sir.

Thanks...

you need JMSOAP  ( joomla soap API )
installed on joomla side  ( must be updated to work with joomla 1.0.8, update cames this week )

on vbulletin side you must install VB_SOAP ( search for it on http://www.vbulletin.org )
you can install it now, it works without changes with joomla 1.0.8


joomla_soap module ( and joomla_sql) must be updated too, to work with joomla 1.0.8

Ok, thanks Leo! But you see what I mean? All these steps just to have SOAP on our installation! We definitely need a tutorial on how to setup COM_CONNECTOR using SOAP and SQL. It seems that at times, you assume everyone has everything installed and ready to go, and this is not the case.

Ok, let me see if I have this straight.

1. Install Joomla SOAP API (JMSOAP)
2. Install VB_Soap (from vbulletin.org)
3. Install Com_Connector
4. Install Joomla_SOAP Module

Is this the correct sequence?

joomla_soap module is used by vbulletin application connector
so that it must be installed too ;)

if you are done with your configuration and you have your forum online
you can try to create step by step tutorial for other users ;)

Yeah, 1.0.7 was working OK. The only outstanding issue for me is that when logging via VBulletin does NOT log me into Joomla, but I think you already know about that. Is Predator working on a new version of vbulletin_sql module for VBulletin?

I installed the com_connector and then published it.  I than installed the vbulletin_sql module as well.  But I don't seen the "Connector Item" listed when looking to add a new menu item.

I think I installed it correctly too, but as I can't add the menu item, I'm not quite certain.  I tried to log into joomla, and then visit my vbulletin forums, but it didn't show me logged in.
same problem here !

Hello Leonsio
I am a professor of mathematics with very little experience as much with joomla as with moodle.  I am making (or trying to do) a platform that uses joomla and that can be connected with Moodle. 
I have seen that there is much writing on the connection with vbulletin, is some experience with moodle?  Thank you very much

Dear Leonsio,

I'm using PHP 5.1.2, MySQL 4, SOAP enabled
Joomla 1.0.8, vBulletin 3.5.4, using the PHP5 SOAP vBulletin module

I've encountered the following problem, having looked at the code, it seems to me that the $module variable has returned a NULL value.
Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '../components/com_connector/modules/.class.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /www/(HIDDEN)/htdocs/administrator/components/com_connector/admin.connector.php on line 231
Could you give me some clues and help me on that?

does the module name was saved in the DB?

Should I just upload the module to the directory (I've created the module directory) and the rest is done by the component?

I've just opened the "vbulletin.class.php", and found that there are three parameters:

// Parameter for the Module
$params=array( 'prefix' => 'Cookie Prefix',
'server' => 'SOAP Server URL',
'key' => 'Key to access SOAP Server');

What should I put for these three parameters?

I'm newbie to codings...

you SHOULD NOT change anything in the module
all settings can be setup in the com_connector administration

klick on edit module (if you have setup one ) and check the settings

and dont write support requests in this thread
if you have problems try to start new thread

I was getting a bug using com_connector and the smf bridge (which i think does not matter in this situation). If an invalid username was entered, it would throw this error:

Code: Select all

DB function failed with error number 1064
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 3 SQL=UPDATE jos_users SET connector_cookies = 'a:0:{}' WHERE id =
SQL =

UPDATE jos_users
 SET connector_cookies = 'a:0:{}'
 WHERE id =
I traced this back to includes/index.php in the login() function. I guess you forgot to check for invalid usernames, I just added this before it and it behaves correctly:

Code: Select all

if(empty($row->id)) {
                                        echo "<script> alert(\"Invalid username\"); window.history.go(-1); </script>\n";
                                        exit();
                                }
I'm sure this is a nasty hack, but it fixed it for me.

It really seems that way. It's a good idea if you need a multi bridge site, but the implementation isn't quite there yet. I ended up using one of the dedicated bridges to integrate my SMF, and it looks and works a lot better.

Hello,

the com_connector worked with Joomla 1.08 and VBull 3.5.4 but now, I update to Joomla 1.0.10 and the connector doesn't work.
I would like to know, when you update the connector to work it with the latest Joomla version?

Best regards,
Hansi

Hi,

I am also still waiting for an update, but Leonsio said somewhere, he will do a new (?) version as soon as 1.5 will be out...
