thank you.

    Hi @leogopal,

    I'm sorry to have to tell you this but ProxyConnect works in reverse to what you're looking for. We've created a way for people who already have a Wordpress blog with users, and want to add a Vanilla forum which uses that user information... not the other way around.

    This is something that we've thought about, but it is really more of a Wordpress thing than a Vanilla thing. Wordpress would need to support remote authentication. They are actually planning something like this for their next release (or so i've been told by one of their devs), so it might be sooner rather than later.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news -_-
