    vBDrupal

    I run Drupal on some of my sites and vBulletin on other sites. I am planning a site which will use both Drupal and vBulletin.

    I did some research and found vBDrupal. vBDrupal is a minor fork of Drupal which adds tight integration with vBulletin.

    Yes, open source and commercial software sleeping with each other.

    This would allow me to share user databases with both applications, and enable me to implement plugin's designed for either application.

    Then I could implement the WordPress/vBulletin bridge and have a true best of breed solution!

    Heh, more work for you! From the looks of the wordpress/vbulletin bridge thread, it seems that it will be a hassle to maintain.
    You can use Drupal as both, a CMS and a blogging engine.

    Drupal is just sort of clunky as a blogging engine.

    Plus, I am exploring using WP-Mu to allow guest bloggers to create their own individual blogs.

    Are you planning to run it on NB? It'll be cool.

    I am thinking about WP-Mu here also. We have vBBlog here currently, but it's not quite exactly everything that I had hoped for.

    You won't be able to have tight integration with vB like it currently does.

    Wordpress-MU integration with vBulletin is possible but no one wants to build a bridge for it.

    I had forgotten that "Complete Wordpress/Vbulletin Bridge - Share Users And Postings" documentation states that it "DOES NOT and WILL NEVER support Wordpress MU."

    I wonder why that is?

    The plugin ports the users of vBulletin to ONE wordpress install. It's useful if you want to allow comments from only registered users or if you want to allow specific usergroups to have permission for writing/editing/publishing blog posts.

    On the Drupal site, I want to use vBulletin as a forum and WordPress as a blog. I want to use vBulletin as the commenting engine for the WordPress blog. Well, that's what I think I want. I won't really know until I bolt the entire monstrosity together and find out where it leaks.

    On this site, I want to give each Net Builder their own blog. vBBlog's just don't seem so "personal." They can't be individually themed. They are just too tightly integrated.

    Hmmm, I've tried searching for Wordpress module for Drupal .. instead of the module.. I've found them arguing how drupal already has blog module and how it is not worth adding integration of Wordpress to Drupal.

    However, there is a plugin for Wordpress (not Wordpress MU) to add Drupal support.

    Lol, I think that you can never get a near perfect integration with all this fanboyism. You'll always have to hack your way round.
