Wordpress integration - post names and widgets

Hi all,

Newcomer to Vanilla here. but really excited about prospect of using it to combine WP comments and forum. Couple of things I've come up against, though, which I'm fairly sure will have been solved before me but can't find in the forums...

1) Is there an easy way to alter the way new discussions are created? At the moment they're [site name]|[Post name], and it would be neater to just use [post name] (especially as I've got 1500-odd posts which insta-start new threads as soon as Vanilla is installed).
2) Is there an option to filter out threads started by System from the WP widget? I don't want to filter out the 'Site comments' section of the forum, but I do want to stop that first post appearing on the WP front page.

Thanks in advance....

    Vanilla comments is crude as it uses scraping rather than a proper api. For the title it just take the title tag of the page in the head, so if your has the site name in the title it will copy that.

    There are security concerns about the lack of verification of origin with Vanilla Comment as it stands.

    It really needs to be replaced with a better solution.

    grep is your friend.
