Embedding without embedding?
I ended up choosing VanillaForums for a client in part because it looked like it would embed nicely into the existing website. The website is using a CMS system (ExpressionEngine), so being able to embed it was attractive.
Unfortunately, using the "Embed Vanilla" in VF 18.104.22.168 causes a number of things not to function very well, including:
-- The Who's Online plugin count no longer seems to work
-- The Quotes plugin doesn't auto-scroll to the reply box when you click it
-- The CLEditor malfunctions badly with run-away resizing
...and so on and so forth. These problems go away if I go to the non-embedded URL for the forum, but then I lose the ability to integrate the forums visually with the CMS system and website.
So is there a way to embed the forums without embedding them in an iframe? I realize I can add whatever HTML I want to the header/footer, but that doesn't allow me to use the CMS system with it.
This has to be a pretty common scenario. Is there something I'm missing here?
