stuck... need help with wordpress blog posts entering into vanilla as discussions
I've been beating my head against the wall trying to do 2 things in order to achieve Wordpress posts working as discussions in Vanilla.
Tons of Google searching and reading these Vanilla forums hasn't provided me with a solid answer.
Goal: I want to make a Wordpress post, and have it integrate into my embedded Vanilla forums as a discussion/thread. I want users to be able to leave comments in either wordpress or vanilla and have them synced to both spots...
I've turned on comment integration, I have the WP Vanilla plugin enabled, embedding is enabled in Vanilla dashboard... but the comments in WP don't show anything. There is no form to make a comment in a WP blog post, and there is no forum post in Vanilla.
Tried various themes to see if my custom was the problem, but it doesnt matter if I try other themes, they all just show 'comments by Vanilla' at the bottom of each post, but nothing else. Adding comments through the WP Admin page doesn't add anything to the page itself (different comment system)...
Testing locally using XAMPP
cURL is enabled
not sure if I need to enable loopback in .htaccess or what...
Vanilla 2.1.3 (upgraded by copying over my 2.1.1 files and ensuring my conf/config.php file still worked)
