    Looks like you want to embed your forum into your wordpress site. You'll have to ask other users how to do that or look in the documentation

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    Please post the URL to the site in question. If you are hosting your WP page, I suggest you use Mantra theme. It is very customizable and you can insert your forum anywhere you want even in it's own page.

    Either way you need to add a text widget somewhere with the code of the forum or make a wp page to insert the forum.

    also if you look at the class.embedvanilla.plugin.php you will see :

    1.0.2 - Moved WordPress plugin to repository & updated link to
    // Define the plugin:
    $PluginInfo['embedvanilla'] = array(
       'Name' => '<Embed> Vanilla',
       'Description' => "Embed Vanilla allows you to embed your Vanilla forum within another application like WordPress, Drupal, or some custom website you've created.",
       'Version' => '1.0.6',
       'Author' => "Mark O'Sullivan",
       'AuthorEmail' => '*snip*',
       'AuthorUrl' => '',
        'SettingsUrl' => '/plugin/embed',
        'MobileFriendly' => TRUE

    MobileFriendly may be making your forum be displayed without headers. Try changing it to False and see if that fixes it.
