MediaWiki/vBulletin Single Sign-On
Current Version: 2.1.0
This hack provides single sign-on capability for MediaWiki using your vBulletin users. You must ensure your cookie path in Admin CP is set to '/' for this to work. Also, I have not tested this if your wiki and your forums are on different subdomains - but as long as your have your cookie domain set properly it *should* work. This is not
a user bridge - it is a complete single sign-on using your vBulletin user repository.
The install process has been extremely simplified in version 2.x of this product. You only have to edit LocalSettings.php, import a product, and change a setting in your Admin Control Panel. It's been completely packaged as a vBulletin product - unlike the previous hacked up version, heh. I didn't originally plan to release this so I designed it so it worked - not so it could be redistributed. I searched high and low for a functional MediaWiki bridge - almost bought NuHIT's product, and then realized it had been abandoned for over a year.
This hack requires an edit to class_core.php. Hopefully, I can get around this in future versions of vBulletin but it must exist for now. If you fail to make this change, you will not be able to edit your wiki. Also, if you upgrade vBulletin, you must remember to re-apply the change to class_core!
I'll do my best to support it, but I can make no promises.

Also, if you use memcached - ensure you do not cache sessions. If you do, restart it at least once a week. If you don't, you'll end up with invalid session errors out of MediaWiki.
