Just can't get Wordpress/Vanilla SSO to work

edited July 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

Hi. Even reading other solutions I'm stuck, hope someone will help.

I am using the Vanilla Forums plugin in wordpress. I have embedded my Vanilla forum into my wordpress site, that part works fine.

I've installed the jsconnect plugin in Vanilla and configured it using the settings from the Wordpress plugin.

Here is where I get lost. If I go to my wordpress site but I'm not logged in as any user, then I go to the embedded Vanilla forum, it displays the button to sign in using my wordpress site. I click on that, and in the iFrame where the forum is embedded I get the Wordpress registration screen. I can register, an email is sent to me for password validation, and I can then log in. I'm logged in as wordpress, however now the entire site is in the iFrame, it doesn't redraw over the entire page. So question number 1 is:

1) In this sign in scenario where can I make the change to target the main page for the login instead of the iFrame where Vanilla is embedded?

While I'm signed in to Wordpress, the iFrame area which was trying to redraw is empty (white) except for the Wordpress admin bar. So question #2 is:

2) After registering and signing in, why doesn't the screen load a proper page? What page should it load at this point? The forums? The home page of the wordpress site?

Finally, while I am logged in to Wordpress with the new registration userID, that ID has not been added to the Vanilla Forums database (checked with phpAdmin). So I am doing something wrong connecting the two. Question #3:

3) I obviously don't have SSO working. Is there anyone experienced who would be willing to help me with this? Thanks.
