Embed vanilla into a wordpress site maintaining sidebars

Hi, I'm very new to both vanilla and php but am trying to embed vanilla forums into a wordpress site that includes right and left sidebars. Currenty, embedding vanilla results in the entire page devoted to the forum, but I want to keep my sidebars and have vanilla in between.

I've been trying to add get_sidebar() to the embed_template.php but the sidebar and the vanilla forum won't appear on the same horizontal level, and instead I'm ending up with a sidebar, then the forum below it, then the other sidebar below the forum. I've edited the custom.css adding a #Frame and limiting its width, but the problem persists. Any ideas?

    This probably has more to do with your WordPress theme than Vanilla. First off, are you using the Embed Vanilla plugin? If so, the forum will embed on whatever page you specify, or wherever you paste the embed code. For instance on my site I used the embed Vanilla plugin to create a new forum page and specified a one-column page template, which came with my theme. I just checked and I can change the template to default and still have the sidebar. Embedding Vanilla doesn't override any WordPress theme settings, so without seeing all of your theme code this is too complex to figure out for you.

    On the other hand, if you're not embedding WordPress, if instead you're doing Vanilla-WordPress integration, then you should go to forums for help.
