    [SV] Redirect Script for vBulletin Album images to IP.gallery images v1.0
    Redirect Script for vBulletin Album images to IP.gallery images is a script which redirects from old vBulletin Album images to new IP.gallery images.  This script will save you hundreds of hours for converting these links manually.  It's made for redirecting image-links or image-source-tags, as IP.board converter does not take care for these URLs.
    In Short, your benefits:
    Redirect Script saving you up to hundreds of hours of manual work! No changes on your Database (read only queries)!  
    Currently, vBulletin 4.x is supported only. modrewrite is required for .htaccess redirects. Installation:
    Copy directory "sv_vb2ipb_images_redirects" into your board's root directory. Open the directory within your browser via http:// YOUR_BOARD_URL /sv_vb2ipb_images_redirects/ Add the shown .htaccess code at the top of your .htaccess file in your board's root directory Uninstallation:
    Revert Changes to .htaccess file Delete directory http:// YOUR_BOARD_URL /sv_vb2ipb_images_redirects/ How does it work:
    The script looks for the old image ID saved by IPB converter script. ID was found? great, redirect to new image URL. If the ID wasn't found (or saved under "you'll never find it"), the script will perform a search based on old filename. If lucky, the first entry found will be used. Known Issues:
    The script cannot find images which cannot be found even by ID or a search query. Please be aware that there could be a small amount of images which cannot be retrieved. Unfortunately, these cannot be fixed by this script, as this is an issue of improperly converted images from vb albums. Sometimes, other filetypes than images are placed within image tags, this is an issue by the IPB conversion script. If you see broken images, please check first wether e.g. a PDF file is embed within image tags. Just change BBcode in post for that file to solve that issue. At least you don't have to manually search for the new file link.

    Hi Ken,

    thanks for quoting my topics, but in the meanwhile, when reviewing my points, I'd say that there are some specific cases where the master/slave system of IP:connect could be better than the "all master/all sync" way of my plugin. There isn't only one way to reach a target. Thats why I'm going to develop an IP:connect master application in future, allowing to manage and sync the userbase of different boards and maybe additionally WordPress installations.

    In your specific case I'd strongly recommend using my IPBWI for WordPress plugin with a single IP.board installation. It will be required to enhance IPBWI for WordPress for supporting synced usergroups (maybe incl. secondary groups management, depending on your payment system).

    Yeah it would cost a few hundred EUR, but on the long run, you'd get a smooth solution for your business.

    Finally, I'd say Invision Power is providing all tools and API/function-access to allow deep integration, but I would never demand providing out-of-the-box plugins for other systems from IPS.

    Kind regards,

    You may try out IPBWI for WordPress allowing fully synced comment section between WordPress and IP.board. Old WP comments are still displayed on WP (without syncing them to IP.board), but new comments will be saved within IP.board and displayed on WordPress. That feature also includes full control of displaying that comment list through admin panel and theme files.
  6. IPBWI.com Matthias Reuter added a post in a topic: Integration between IPB and a website   

    Yeah, of course IPBWI is still maintenanced and I'd say IPBWI is still a popular addon, Brandon. ;) Everything the topic author asked can be done rapidly via IPBWI or through IP.board framework directly. IPBWI actually uses parts of IP.board framework as much as possible to avoid redundant code for tasks already done. There are many users integrating IPBWI within IP.board itself because they are more comfortable with my API than with IP.board's framework - but that's a question of taste, only. See documentation page of IPBWI or live examples for more information about the possibilities.
  7. IPBWI.com Matthias Reuter added a post in a topic: IP.Content "Databases" vs. "wp-types" (Wordpress)   

    That's correct. I'm the author of IPBWI / IPBWI for WordPress and the reason for the high prices actuallky is the effort for keeping up compatibility between IP.board and WP. I'm maintanencing the IP.board bridge since many years and have customers counting on that for their business.

    I've made many custom development work based on WordPress and IP.board. I'd still say the best combination on a long run would be WordPress <- IPBWI -> IP.board. I'd not recommend buddypress when you want to manage a big community, you'll depend on many third party plugins to get about half of IP.board features by loosing much performance, stability and flexibility. Additionally, IP.board is still one of the best performance and security optimized bulletin softwares on the market - combined with IPBWI containing the most flexible API-bridge.

    Woocommerce is a great basic shopping plugin for WordPress and with IPBWI for WordPress it is possible to show WordPress widgets in IP.board sidebar. I thought about integration of IP.nexus features into my API to make IP.nexus features (e.g. create new product, cart view, list products, product details, add products to cart, order etc.), because I think that would be a nice benefit for users of IPBWI and IPBWI for WordPress. Unfortunately, there's currently a too small usergroup using IP.nexus asking for that, so I decided spending my development time to more requested features. Additionally, IP.nexus is far away from a user friendly frontend per default, pricing options are very limited and there is a lack of optimization based on different countries. I'd not recommend IP.nexus for a retail shop selling products online. But as small solution for selling digital goods or for member promotion, IP.nexus could be a good decision.

    Finally, I'd say it makes sense to combine different specialized software through an API. You should make sure that there is ongoing support for all applications you plan to use. Summarized:
    IP.board is the best choice for your community WordPress is the best choice for your content being published Both, Woocommerce and IP.nexus actually are very limited and far away from an enterprise eCommerce system like oxid eSales or shopware.

    IPBWI (downloadable here on Marketplace) is the free IPBWI API. You can develop your own apps via PHP.
    IPBWI for WordPress, available on http://ipbwi.com is the WordPress plugin, making single sign on possible between WordPress and IP.board.
    Unfortunately, a Drupal version isn't planned any longer. A few months ago, my crowdfunding campaign for IPBWI for Drupal failed, so it seems there is currently no market for such a drupal plugin.
    Yeah, it's on my todo, but at the moment I can not give you an ETA for that feature.

    Hi Max,
    this is one of the key features of IPBWI for WordPress. IPBWI for WordPress is the out-of-the-box plugin-bridge between IP.board and WordPress, based on the IPBWI API. See all features on http://ipbwi.com/products/
    You can purchase it here: http://straightvisions.com/community/store/category/1-ipbwi-products/
    Kind regards,
  12. IPBWI.com Matthias Reuter added a comment on a blog entry: IP.Board 3.4 Dev Update: IPS Connect   


    that sounds great - and I'm looking forward testing it. As developer of IPBWI I'm already providing a free, GPL licensed Single Sign On API for IP.board and with IPBWI for WordPress there is a plugin for WordPress. At the moment there is a crowdfunding project for Drupal Single Sign On plugin with IP.board

    Mark from Invision Power is right that IP.converge wasn't the best solution as SSO API, in my opinion it was kinda useless and it was not well maintenanced. So I'm very happy about the new feature promise for IP.board 3.4.

    At the moment, when customers ask me integrating a SSO solution, IP.board (or IPBWI) needs to be the "master". I hope the new feature will be more flexible as promised in the news above, so I am able to enhance the already existing SSO feature in IPBWI.

    Unfortunately, Invisionpower is not granting all plugin authors access to alpha/beta versions of board, so I'll need to wait until final is released - that's really bad when I want to use the new feature or prepare my API until new IP.board release is out. But that's another story of Invision Power Community Support :-/

    Kind regards,

    IPBWI as API is licensed to GPL and for free.

    IPBWI for WordPress is an out-of-the-box WordPress plugin - easiest way to sync board and wordPress, but it costs.
