Does the API let me create new discussions/threads programmatically?

Hi, I noticed vanilla has an API that lets you do some basic stuff.
http://vanillaforums.com/blog/api/
Is there a way you can use that API to create a new discussion/thread out of a form submission?

Thanks.

    Also is there a way I can upload files from my mobile device?

    Any information on vanillaforums.com may only pertain to the hosted version of Vanilla. That API is not available to the open source version.

    Ok, but I need to know if the API lets me do that before I purchase the hosted version. Could you at least tell me that, please?
    This is the main feature I am looking for, this is why I'm here and I am willing to purchase it if it has an easy-to-use API that lets me create threads programatically.

    This is the wrong forum to ask on. The regulars here don't use the hosted version.

    I, personally, think you can. I would read through the API documentation. Particularly the discussion add end point.

    Kasper's API will let you does this in its 0.0.6 dev form. I had to make a few changes to the code before it would run.

    And of course you gave Kasper a push / pull request on Github and informed him?

    There was an error rendering this rich post.
