Vanilla/Wordpress integration examples?
I'm trying to figure out if I really want to do this--or if I should just use a one of the WP forum plug-ins. Much as I love Vanilla, the integration seems too daunting and I can't figure out exactly what an integrated forum will DO.
Would any of you who have or know of integrated forums, point me to the sites? I'd like to look them over carefully. Here is what I'm looking for:
â€¢A site that allows live commenting on most blog entries, but I want the comments to each blog entry to end up in a forum--along with the posts from readers that are NOT comments on blog entries. In other words, I want all the reader comments in the same place so that folks can browse comments on blog entries and comments on other topics all together.
â€¢ One log-in whether to comment on blog entries or to begin/comment on a regular forum discussion.
â€¢ Blog entries that show the number of comments made on them in the forum.
â€¢ Front page listing of most recent forum posts, whether blog entry comments or regular forum posts.
â€¢ I'd like to keep the posts I currently have in the forum.
I suppose I'm asking too much, but I'd like input on what will best serve my needs.
