Vanilla Comment System Along with WordPress Comment System

My site is installed on WordPress and I recently implemented Vanilla forums in a sub domain.

I would like to know whether it will be possible to use WordPress comment system and Vanilla comments system together.

I have so many comments already in the site and can't loose them. Can somebody help me please.

    It is possible. @Lincoln has a Glue plugin that integrates both user logins and uses both comment systems. It is possible to remove the code to only have comments integration. You would need to know how to modify your theme and such to have avatars, links to profiles, comment count, and such. With this plugin, comments posted on the Vanilla side will not be posted on the WordPress side, but comments on the WordPress side will be copied to the Vanilla side.

    The best way to keep the comments in sync is to disable commenting on the Vanilla discussion and only allow comments on articles via WordPress while using this plugin. Message me if you need help setting this up, I am available for hire.

    Add Pages to Vanilla with the Basic Pages app
