    yes you can customise vbulletin style to look the same like wordpress site but dynamic stuff like wordpress menu that may changes or some content pull will not work in the vbulletin. Only the look can be transfer to vbulletin style system. I can do it for you.

    I have installed both on www.ciklid.org

    Wordpress is installed at https://www.ciklid.org
    vBulletin forum is installed at https://www.ciklid.org/forum

    Works great

    What you can't do is install vBulletin 5 below Wordpress, or at least, it would not be supported. You can have wordpress on say www.domain and the forum at forum.domain or you can have wordpress at domain.com/wp and the forum at domain.com/forum for example.

    What you can't do is domain.com for wordpress and domain.com/forum for the forum.

    This is just a further thought. You don't necessarily need a bridge to use both wordpress and vbulletin on the same URL.

    I have the Softaculous web-installer available to me via cpanel. Wordpress automatically installs and upgrades reliably, it's very easy to use. There is a wordpress plug in called Flamingo which does a pretty good job of providing you with a contact form for people who are not registered with you and not logged in and that's also easy to install and upgrade in wordpress in my experience.

    If you were to install wordpress on your front end, turn off the vbulletin contact form and deploy Flamingo instead then install your vbulletin installation on a sub-domain or directory called "forum", "community" or whatever else you wanted it to be [you can specify the forum location in the admin control panel in vbulletin] you could then put a link saying "register" "review" on the front page of your wordpress site to direct people to register with your forum and write their reviews and comments there. I guess in a perfect world a bridge would be available but actually the most useful thing would be if the web installer could do the installs and upgrades for you.

    Either way, because installing and upgrading wordpress is easy the absence of a bridge would not stop you using both together.

    I mean this politely. I use vBulletin but I also have some wordpress sites. In order to install the wordpress sites I log into cpanel and use the softaculous web installer. Wordpress automatically installs from softaculous and updates are easy. I can also choose 13 forums to install from Softaculous. As a courtesy I'm not naming them here but none of them is vbulletin, which used to be the most popular forum software in the world. None of them is xenforo either. Just because these forum software packages are available in softaculous it does not automatically follow that there is a bridge from wordpress. But if there was and it was easy to install from cpanel I suspect that vbulletin would grow in popularity.

    There is no built in supported means of doing this. This would require custom coding and/or 3rd part software we do not support. Sorry.
