Wordpress with vanillaforums comment integration: back button is broken


I set up vanilla forum comment integration with wordpress and ran into the following problem. Whenever I go to a wordpress post, the initial link is However, that link is automatically changed to within a second. I think this is because Vanilla creates a new frame to put the comment box in.

Because of that, I cannot go back to the previous page. When I click the back button, it goes back to but then quickly change to again.

Has anyone run into the same problem and how do you solve it?

    I just noticed this problem too.

    Is there any alternative to "move your forums to a subdomain"? Breaking users back buttons is obviously not intended behavior. Surely there is a fix for this!

    This seems to do the trick:

    To stop the vanilla comment embed breaking the back button,

    comment out line 110 of /vanilla/js/embed.js

    // window.location.hash = currentPath; //replace(embedUrl + "#" + currentPath);

    Still seems to be working fine without it, at least in localhost testing.
