    We are looking for someone to install the vBulletin bridge at our site. I attempted it but failed. We want the full bridge whereby blog posts are posted to a forum thread and that comments are handled there. We have a large forum with over 1,000,000 posts and 100,000 members does this make the bridge more difficult?

    Did you ever find an answer to this? I'm in the same situation. I've got a large vbulletin site with 40,000 posts, already well-indexed by the engines. I'd love to organize the non-forum parts of the site with a CMS with a navigation bar that will be visible to forum visitors.

    I have a forum that I created a month or so ago that I have this bridge on. It doesn't have any real user traffic so I don't know how it performs under load, and there are a couple of bugs, but if you are interested I can probably help you out.

    The forum is here: http://motomaniacal.com/en/forums/
    and the wordpress blog is here: http://motomaniacal.com/motopress/

    When you post in the wordpress area it allows you to select which vb forum you want to handle the comments, but like I said there are some bugs and the guy who made the plugin absolutely sucks at providing support so you will have to fool around with it to make it work. I can elaborate on the issues if you need me to.

    adrenalis-
    That is a really kind offer to help. I've installed the bridge plug in and it seems to be working, but if I log out of the wordpress blog it will log me out of the forum, but not the blog. in other words: I can log back into the forum with a different username and the original username remains logged into the blog. I was trying to test it as a regular user and now I can't log back in as admin (on the WordPress blog)

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!
