WP user not importing to VBulletin
 
MY Site is a WPMU Site with buddypress. Onlything i get is people creating blogs that are spam. So i'm removing the blog creation altogether because it's tough for just one person to keep control of legit and spam blogs, so i'm getting rid of the wpmu so it will be Wordpress/buddypress/vBulletin

Installing the bridge went smooth, but i have allot of users and when i map the users to vbuliten, none of the users are imported.

I'm doing all this on localhost (exact copy of my site) before taking it live so i don't no if that's the problem are not.

/forums is the path

eventually, i will have the vb forum use the buddypress profile/buddypress avatars and the messaging system.

This was easy with phpbb on my other wpmu/buddypres site and the support on vbuliten site is the same as the wordpress site.... none

This does not work with WPMU, just WP.. Also, the plugin does not import any users at all, it maps them.

So my current wordpress users cannot login to vBulletin? i mapped the users and used the my other login that i use for a test account and it would not login to vbulletin.

No, the bridge works the other way around, it allows your vbulletin users to log into WP..

Oh so the bridge won't let my 1000+ wp users login with their current usernames and passwords and they will have to create a new account?
