can i get some details of comment integration posts from WP to Vanilla?
So, I've got comment integration working, but, it's not an ideal solution to our problem.
We would like to have the full article text posted into the thread, and not just simply the first HTML "P" tag that is found on the page, or whatever logic is being used to make the snippet of content pasted into the forums after the first comment is made...
In the themes I have tried (one custom, the other WP 2012), and depending if they had sidebars or not, completely irrelevant graphics and text were being pasted as a 'preview' into the forum post... I had to modify my theme in order to get the real blog post content in there. Obviously not the best solution in any regard.
We also want the post to appear in the Vanilla forums right away, and not after someone comments on the WP blog post... that is just poor design.
So I'm looking at writing my own custom query that will make a new Vanilla forum post when the WP blog post is made, and still use the comment integration (without duplicating the topic).
Any details from the experts or Vanilla team would be appreciated. Wading into unknown territory with this architecture, and I'd rather not swim blindly if some people can give me some insight.
