JSON-SSO Not working

Hi, why my SSO is not working, I already signed-in in my wordpress site but the vanilla forum is still asking me to login

I think I followed the instructions correctly, here's my settings

    due to the way wordpress is developed sometime hooks are not reached, becuase themes don't implement them properly. There may different way themes are implemented it isn't always consistent.

    That is why you may have better luck with

    as this provides a direct script for authentication, rather than relying on hooks.

    in an ideal world it could all go through the framework, but with a direct script you don't have to work about the framework not delivering.

    You can use the two plugins together btw.

    grep is your friend.

    Thanks for the reply, I used the wp-vanilla-connect but nothing changes. This is my first time to use the vanilla forum, that's why I'm not sure how JSON-SSO should work. I thought once the user registers on my wordpress site, the user will be automatically registered on my vanilla forum. Single-Sign-On I also thought that once my user log-in to my wordpress, the user will be automatically logged-in on my vanilla forum without signing in again, but this is what happened after I logged In to my wordpress site.

    Correct me if I'm wrong with my expectation.

    Could you detail what plugin you deactivated and/or your current setup?

    This will be helpful to other people with the same issue. :D
