Janine: Embed Vanilla into Wordpress template

edited May 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Love Janine, setup was pretty easy, but it did take me a while. Now that I have it going, I feel like I am only a half step away from nirvana. I would like to replace Wordpress comments altogether, but have the blog still look like it has comments. In order words, swap out the wordpress comments in the template with an include to a Vanilla comments template. Instead of a Discussion link bringing you to the forum, the posts are displayed inside the wordpress template. This way you can still have the standalone forum for other purposes, but integrate the blog comments as a shared resource. I created an image to illustrate:


Unfortunately, I am barely familiar with php, so I am having problems modifying the vanilla comments.php file to do this. Any takers on helping me out here? It seems like a very simple next step for this plugin.
