Intro and CodeIgniter 3x - jsConnect (SSO) - Responsive Design
Intro and first question here on Vanilla (which I've been wanting to take for a spin for a while)!!...
I am a web worker monkey of about 20 years now. Over the years, I've used / managed a handful of forums, and have even built a couple of them from scratch (That's what we did in the old days :-) ). At my current day job we are currently reviewing forums with the idea of switching many of them to the same platform. My gaze is set upon Vanilla.
I've all but decided to start with trying out Vanilla on our latest site rebuild, but I wanted to get some comments from the "people in the know" first.
As mentioned, this immediate project uses:
- Codeigniter 3x, employing a custom and basic users-groups database.
- The site is responsive.
- We also have many wordpress based sites.
My questions to you all..
1.) Has anyone any experience integrating Codeigniter and Vanilla? What are the things to look out for there?.. Best practices?... gotchyas?.. Any comments appreciated.
2.) My plan is to use jsConnect with this first project. It looks fairly straight forward... but same question.. is there any "gotchya's" to look out for there?
3.) One of the reasons I am interested in Vanilla is for embeding in our wordpress sites, down the road. I've noticed though that the plug-in does not appear to work with the latest version of wordpress. How stable / up-to-date is that plug-in? Is it maintained? Does it work with the latest wordpress?
TIA... just basically looking for any success/fail stories in any of these areas.
