[Solved] Embed Problems - Vanilla 188.8.131.52, Wordpress 3.4, WP Vanilla Forums Plugin 1.1.11
Using the above configuration, I am having problems with the embed Vanilla functionality; as this was one of the main reason's I wished to use vanilla it's a little frustrating to say the least.
PHP Version 5.3.17 (cgi)
MySQL version 5.0.67, PDO driver installed etc etc
The problems I think are compounded by the support documentation, which shows older builds etc. I'll try and explain the steps I have taken as best I can to give a clear view of the issues I'm experiencing and so you can let me know if it's some user error that has caused the bugs.
I began with clean installs of Wordpress 3.4 and Vanilla Forums 184.108.40.206, both installed using softalicious via Cpanel. I was initially concerned that the issues may have been caused by the softalicious install being wrong, but after cross-referencing the file structure on my site with an unzipped version of 220.127.116.11 downloaded from this site I have concluded that they are indeed, the same version and layout.
After this, I logged into my Dashboard on both WP and VF.
There is NO Embed option in the "Forum Settings " menu in the Vanilla Dashboard - which contradicts the blog post found here Vanilla guide to converting embed plugin
So, given no embed (I figured that update must apply to the 'hosted' option) I went to plugins in Vanilla's Dashboard and found embed Vanilla version 1.6 as an available plugin. I activated the plugin, however my "embed Vanilla Settings Screen" does Not look like the one shown in the blog documentation or the ScreenR casts - it is missing everything below the 'current theme/ theme options' section. See screenshot below.
I installed the Wordpress Plugin "Vanilla Forums v1.1.11"
I validated my forum adress, however it created 2 'Discussions' pages instead of 1, and the embed code wouldn't work on either. I've changed templates to Default WP ones etc to make sure it's not a styling error.
I was never given an option 'sync' my URL's between the wordpress plugin and the embed plugin in Vanilla, as is demonstrated in the ScreenR videos running the older version of the plugin, as that section of my Dashboard>Plugins> 'embed Vanilla settings' was missing as shown in the screenshot above... I was not sure if this was removed as it was no longer needed with the new WP Vanilla Forums plugin (the embed codes are different to the video as well) or because something was wrong
Any help is much appreciated, can anyone help me determine the cause of this issue?
