About

vBSSO is a vBulletin plugin that helps you connect to different software platforms like content management systems, blogs, and online stores using a secure Single Sign-On.

The system has two components. First, there’s a vBulletin plugin that creates an interface for authenticating, controlling access, and managing user profile data. The second component is plugins for other platforms (like WordPress) that teach it to talk to vBulletin and exchange data. Here’s a list of support platforms

The vBSSO plugin is free and open-source under the GNU General Public License. If you would like help creating a new plugin or installing an existing one, we can provide support. Please send us a feature request to get an implementation quote.
