Forum integration with Composr CMS

I have a unique requirement. I want to Composr CMS for my upcoming site. However, I am not comfortable with the forum layout available in Composr by default. So, I am considering to use another forum product and integrate with Composr. Earlier I checked with the phpBB community as Composr officially supports integration with phpBB 3.1. However, it is partially working for phpBB 3.2.

Then, I found Vanilla forum through internet. I am immediately impressed with the simple and yet clean layout. The best I have seen so far. Loving it, Good job Vanilla team.

Okay, now to my question. Is it possible to integrate Vanilla forum with Composr?

    Your requirement isn't really unique. In order to integrate Vanilla to your CMS (whatever CMS that might be), you need to work with jsConnect . There are already some helpful discussions here in the forum

    Thanks, R_J for the response.

    However, I don’t just want SSO, I also need to be able to store Composr content comments in Vanilla. There’s a whole API they have called ‘forum drivers’.

    Sounds as if this might be a job for a composr developer. Could you give a link to such a driver?

    there is an api, however I'm not sure what you mean by integrate. These kinds of cludges or "bridges" :p rarely work well.

    grep is your friend.

    Take a look at this composer cms link and see if you can export data via rss and import it via one of the Vanilla Feed Discussions plugins
