    Please open a support ticket - your original post contained sensitive information such as username and password

      Also, not sure what you are trying to accomplish here - are you creating your own login method or something? The password can't just be plaintext as you've had it.

        I opened a support ticket and I was told vbulletin doesnt support Mobile API. So I had to put the information here because I need help.

        Per the instructions given on this page: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/conte...thods?langid=3

        The mobile API allows unhashed password to be used. Is that understanding incorrect?
        • vb_login_password - The password of the User. If client use this to login, the plain password may be sniffed during the pass in the network
        • vb_login_md5password - The md5 password of the User
        • vb_login_md5password_utf - The md5 password (Unicode) of the User

        I am getting this error
        {"session":{"dbsessionhash":"443da956d6d07a45dab8af693291240e","userid":"0"},"response":{" errormessage":["badlogin","http:\/\/www.scorechase.com\/gmat","api=1&","0"]}}


        Which means bad username / password. But this is the correct username and password. So whats the meaning of this error?

            Since this involves custom coding, the correct place to ask for help with this is at www.vbulletin.org.

              Can you provide an example of how login code should be used? Since the error is coming from Vbulletin's API, I find it really hard to understand why you wont give atleast a hint what could be the reason of API returning this error

                No, I can't. I simply don't know. The place to ask for help with this (and any custom coding) is over at www.vbulletin.org.
