Vanilla incorporated into Wordpress

I have read documentation here and at Wordpress, but I am having trouble understanding how this "integration" works and looks.

Can anyone give references to a site or two that has this integration working please, so I can see it live? Thanks.

    Integrated how?

    The only one I can think of off the top of my head is: www.explorer-systems.com

    @ShadowDare's site, www.LividTech.com used to be WP based if I recall correctly.

    @ercatli It's 1) iframe'd comments on blog posts (replacing the normal WP comment system) which also create discussions on the forum and 2) an optional single sign-on system so your WP users can login to Vanilla with the same user/pass combo.

    You can theme the comments to look however you want.

    If you're interested in the cloud hosting service, you can contact sales@vanillaforums.com for more info.

    @hgtonight He was using Glue, which I do not recommend to non-developers.

  • There are different kinds of integration such as blog comments, embedding, and user authentication with jsConnect. Some people don't like the feel of embedded forums, so they create separate themes for WordPress and Vanilla that look alike.

    I recall someone had written an article explaining all the differences and nuances between the different ways of having articles as well as forums, using glue, embedding, connect, wordpress, content system, etc.
    That was a great article. @shadowdare hint...

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • OK, thanks. I don't think what you're saying here is exactly what I'm looking for, but thanks for the input.
