I am having issues with the plugin. It was working fine until I had to uninstall it due to some separate issues. Now I reinstalled it and when I try to activate it, I get this error: Warning: include_once(./global.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /homepages/32/d281380478/htdocs/candyv/jascogames2/wp-content/plugins/vblink/lib/vBLink/vBulletin/Finder.php on line 147

Please help :(


We will contact you from your support ticket with the same issue.


Hi, i have a vbulletin 4.3 and i want to transfer news, only web´s news, forum doesn´t. I´d like to know if with this plugins can i do it without problems?


Thanks for interesting in vBLink!

Unfortunetely vBLink does not do content synchronisation. It’s an authentication and profile synchronisation plugin. You can see the list of features here.


I wonder how does it work on user registration? It will redirect the user to register in vBulletin registration page? And once it is registered, I would like the new user to wait for email to activate the account before the user is created in Wordpress. Would that be possible?


The short answer is, yes, it works as you expected.

Accounts are created in WordPress on login. If the new user should confirm his email in vBulletin, he will not be able to login the WordPress. Then his account will not be created until he confirms his email.


Ok, I purchased the plugin. I wonder how to make the user also created in Wordpress after vBulletin created the user? Moreover, where the cron job is installed?

Thanks for purchasing vBLink!

As we’ve mentioned above, account creation in WordPress side is triggered manually with user login. You can also use bulk sync feature to sync users from vBulletin periodically with the help of WP Cron.

If you mean WP Cron by cron job, it’s handled by WordPress and you don’t need to do anything but enabling it from plugin settings. It will be run automatically. If you have a large user base and bulk sync doesn’t sync all all users (because it depends on HTTP requests and can be ended in the middle of the progress), you can try WP-CLI.

PS: Comments section is fine to get general help. However we prefer support for your specific questions.

Does it work with vBulletin 5?


The system doesn’t create a user in vbulletin when I create a user inside wordpress.

Can you please let me know what to do?

I’m running wordpress 4.7.2. Plugin just doesn’t activate. Displays an error:

Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘class’ (T_CLASS), expecting identifier (T_STRING) or variable (T_VARIABLE) or ‘{’ or ’$’ in /home/poadmin14/public_html/wp-content/plugins/vblink/app.php on line 19

Please anybody experienced this before? Using this for the first time though. Thanks

Finally we where able to activate the plugin, event though it causes an error since, it tries to write into the wrong /tmp directory. But now it does not find the vbulletin installation – not automatically nor with the manual link, even if the link is 100% correct – please help!
