    Ha ha...I think you're probably right. The embedding function of Vanilla seemed like a real time saver but in the end I think it may just be too limiting.

    in the two days the 3 of us have been working on this, the standalone would have been done and styled by V the super styler. :)

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    Yes I asked my father that, if mensch is supposed to be man, but no it means human or humane. Like saying you are a stand up human being.

    I suppose I would have a problem with hu-man why not hu-woman ? or just hu...

    Human now days is anything that walks on two legs for more than one hour. So it is not necessarily sexist anymore

  • I always thought it was gender-specific.

    but it could also be like "you guys" bending the rules over linguistic time.

    I've never known the term to be gender specific....either way, you're very helpful so a mensch you are!

    it likely was,Sure and why not, considering yiddish is a mixture of german,dutch and hebrew. Plus when these sayings began to be used , women were not considered to even be human. I am glad things are no longer that way and women can also be considered a mensch for doing good things and being helpful .

    Also if you look at the hebrew language there is no coeds for humanity ,

    benadam, that means humans sons of adam, him being the first human/man.

    But what I mean is there is no female gender. Because females did not give birth in those days. people used to come from ribs... lol

    That would be a nice idea, however it is a language that is not used anymore except by really old people. I do not know anyone living who speaks fluently. Possibly one could find some student who did. Or even a Rabi somewhere.

    or this might be good ?

    AWESOME !! my hunch was right then.

    Not advisable to call the embed url forum if you don't want the links to open in a new page. B)

    Actually, naming the embed url "forum" didn't matter as it's working fine here: http://shoppingcart.djangobooks.com/forum

    Looking back, the problems were:

    Issue: The target="_blank" causing embedded discussion links to open in a new window.

    Solution: edit the embed_local.js so it's target="_self"

    Issue: All links on the embedded forum redirecting back to the main page of the forum (only happened when embedded in my store)

    Solution: Use unpacked iframe method instead of Vanilla's embed script.

    Issue: Forum not embedding at all

    Solution: Use the embed link that points to : /plugins/embedvanilla/remote.js instead of the link that the Vanilla admin panel suggest which is /js/embed.js">

    thanks again for your help!

    Ok , just to clear up some potential misunderstanding .

    The embed forum code from the Embed Forum link in the panel does not work .

    The code from Embed Vanilla Plugin works.

    These are two separate versions of embed in 2.1 .

    I just checked and they are both working for me now, I can't explain why. Yesterday when we were trouble shooting only the plugin link was working. Now both do. :o
