    There's no MediaWiki integration for vBulletin at the moment.

    The only thing you can try is vB Drupal. It's a Drupal integration for vBulletin and there's a Wiki module in it. You can find it on and on - Belgian/Dutch computer and technology site

      I sort of created a bridge between MediaWiki and vBulletin for
      It's far from a great solution, I had to hack quite some things in MediaWiki in order to get it to work. MediaWiki didn't give me enough freedom in order to make it compatible for usernames that could contain all sorts of characters.
      IF you are setting up a new board it wouldn't be a bad idea to limit usernames to alphanum and space only.
      The way I implemented the connection between mediawiki is that users records are copied when the user first logs in, the authentication is done using the vBulletin data instead of the mediawiki data.
      Because of the username issue I had to break mediawiki's User namespace.

      My work is partially based on this:
      Magicball Network - Little Big Adventure Community [admin]
      the Unreal Admin Page - Unreal Tournament Server Administration Community [admin]
      vbDrupal - Drupal integration with vBulletin [core developer]
