Trying to connect to Vanilla from WordPress just generates a blank page

This discussion is related to the <Embed> Vanilla addon.
edited May 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I am trying to embed VanillaForums within WordPress 3.1.3. When I am entering my forums url under the Forum administration in the WordPress dashboard it just sends me to a blank /wp-admin/options.php.

Any ideas on what might be wrong? I am running fresh WordPress and VanillaForums installs and I have even tried to reinstall WordPress and VanillaForums from scratch


  • Anyone?

    Not sure. Try this:

    1. Go to your forum's dashboard under $lt;Embed> Vanilla.
    2. Grab the embed code.
    3. Add the code to a Wordpress page and see if it works.
    4. Make sure you aren't entering the code in wysywg mode as it is a script.

    @Todd I am having the same problems. I tried what you just said and nothing is showing up.
  • Is CURL installed on your server?
