      It's nice to the Drupal vB alive and kicking

      This one

      Drupal vB turns Drupal's user-base into the primary user-base
      should be the inverse to me :|

        Wow that looks pretty good, not quite as deep integration as you get with vbDrupal but it looks as though it's updated more often. Though as Deriel said, odd that it makes Drupals user-base the primary one.

          That is because Drupal is licensed under the GPL and can't truly be integrated with vBulletin due to incompatible licenses. They simply get around this by using Drupal's user system. I doubt vBDrupal is even compliant with the GPL license in its implementation. Maybe the LGPL but that is another issue.

            So I'm assuming that means that new users would all be added to the Drupal database, would that cause a problem if I wanted to remove Drupal and export the user database back to vBulletin at a later date for whatever reason?

            Would it even be possible to do that? The main draw of vbDrupal is the ease of removing it if I wanted to.

              I can't really tell you. I have not used the Drupal VB solution.

              vBDrupal seems to have a better implementation in my view. Only because I like the vBulletin profile system a lot better than Drupal's. However vBDrupal is still tied to Drupal 5 as well. It would be nice if they updated to Drupal 6.

                We have a vbulletin powered forum, can we use drupal CMS to same ?

                We want that all existing users should also be properly able to use the portal.

                  Hey Wayne,

                  I know this is an old thread, but people are still searching for a connection between vBulletin and Drupal so I wanted to share with you that even under vbDrupal the profiles are handled by Drupal. The only thing I can see for the vb Profile is a link in the Drupal profile...

                  Double clicking... Click My account to get to the Drupal user profile and then within that there is a link to the vb Profile.

                  Not an ideal situation at all..

                  Let's cross our fingers that vb 4.0 Suite is good to go and then for most community sites there will be little need for Drupal. (I am not knocking it as I am beginning to love it)
