Split from Wordpress
I have a long-established web site using Wordpress and Vanilla Forums. My only experience of using/managing Vanilla is as a Wordpress integration. My installed version is Version 188.8.131.52.
I am thinking about dropping the Wordpress side of things but I am happy with my Vanilla Forums and so is my community.
Does Vanilla have any dependencies on the Wordpress files?
Can I just purge my database of the WP fields and run Vanilla on its own?
Also, are there any widgets/scripts that will allow me to display recent topics on my home page (for example)?
