  • vBulletin Cloud + existing website users

    I am a monthly subscriber to vBulletin cloud and have been tasked to research vBulletin integration into our website. I am looking for ideas on how vBulletin could live on our existing website (which requires users to log in to access online courses and resources) without the need to register to become forum users.

    Could a database be synced with vBulletin so users could simply navigate to the forums section after logging into our website?

    Thanks for your help and suggestions!

    The answer is long and requires custom programming at this time.
    1. You would need to enable the Mobile API under vBulletin API -> API Key.
    2. Next you would need custom code calling the API to create users.
    3. Once created, you would need to write the cookies necessary for your Cloud sub-domain to log the user in. (userid, password,remember me). Probably through login.
    4. Once the cookies exist, they will be logged in when they visit the site.

    My personal site has the API documentation as you can see from the links above. You'll probably want to start here:
