1.1.2 Integration with Wordpress 2.1.2

edited March 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I have read through the whole documentation to do with integration with wordpres and also a few forum posts asking about integrating. I have seen that the way Vanilla now handles sessions is affecting integration and that Mark is thinking about how to work around this. At this moment in time is it possible to integrate Vanilla 1.1.2 with Wordpress 2.1.2 in terms of users? I would also like to know if anyone has a guide or tips on integrating vanilla into wordpress' theme. I have attempted to just match the header but I got so lost in css and stuck with the php in my wordpress themes header that I have given up for now. Thanks for any help anyone can give.

    Yes. The code in the wiki guide represents the latest "best effort" to integrate Vanilla 1.1.X and WP 2.1.X. It's not a perfect long-term solution but it's working fine for me for now.

    I would also like to know if anyone has a guide or tips on integrating vanilla into wordpress' theme.

    You and me both. I'm trying to tame Vanilla to my site's theme right now and it's slow going.

    Thank you for those links. I have seen the integration guide but have not had much time to try it out I just saw it was based on Wordrpess 2.0.4 and vanilla 1.0.1 so wondered if it was still valid for newer versions. As for the themeing I have found the following two links:

    Integrating vanilla forum and wordpress themes

    and

    Customizing Vanilla

    I am sure the devlounge article has been discussed here before but not so sure about the one at ilfilosofo. I had vanilla and Wordpress installed separately and not integrated on the user side at one point and I have attempted to get vanilla to at least look like it is inside my Wordpress theme and the best I could come up with was to strip the code from the header of my Wordpress theme and made it into static html, that was until I found the ilfilosofo article and I now seem to be getting somewhere.

    Since 1.1.x handles sessions differently what is the current status of getting vanilla and wordpress to share them?

    Thanks for your help.
