Wordpress Install Instructions create multiple Discussions Pages and fail to display the Forum
I am trying to embed the Forum inside wordpress v3..7.1 using the WP Plugin 1.1.141 and have followed the instructions very carefully and am getting the same failure now every time. I am using localhost. I can install database and install Vanilla Forums and that works perfectly and is located at: http://localhost/vanilla_forum/ It works perfectly
From the Dashboard URL area "Enter the url to the page you would like to use as your homepage:" I see
http://localhost/vanilla_forum/discussions AND I "saved" that.
I installed the wordpress plugin vanilla-forums at localhost/wp-content/plugins and "activated" it. My http://localhost/wp-admin/admin.php?page=vf-admin-handle under "Enter the full url of your Vanilla Forum:" shows http://localhost/vanilla_forum and that "validates" properly. If I then do to "All Pages" in wordpress I see that a "discussions" page has been automatically created with a slug "discussions". If I then move to the Forum Integration field in Wordpress under the "Forum Page in WordPress:" field I see that it reflects:
http://localhost/discussions-2/ and it has automatically created a new Wrodpress page "discussions" with a slug "discussion-2". So I now have 2 worpress pages with 2 slugs. I find that it will not let me "edit" http://localhost/discussions-2/. So I now have 2 wordpress pages with 2 different slugs.
If I then embed the code shown in "Forum Code" in either page the Forum DOES NOT show up at all. the "Forum Code" that was built by the plugin is:
This has happened 4 times now exactly the same.
Does anyone know what I am doing wrongly please.
