    Please leave feedback after testing the plugin. Be sure you are using 1.1.4 or later first.

    The installation mentions that you need to be using friendly urls with the .htaccess mod_rewrite code. I may not have released the update yet. I'll go ahead and do that. Please pay specific attention to the Install tab.

    Please provide specific settings on IPB.

    I would like to test the cross-posting from version 1.2, when will that code be completed? Need help? I created a Invision-Wordpress bridge 2 years ago and could provide code samples to make this a complete bridge.

    It's available for testing now.
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ipb-comments-for-wordpress/

    I'm still trying to get the hang of the readme.txt file and SVN.

    Btw, this is just for cross-posting. I won't be adding Single Sign On (SSO) to this anywhere.

    At the end of the Installation tab, please note:
    Important: IPB must be setup to use Friendly URLs, with mod_rewrite .htaccess enabled and being used. Please research that before you begin testing.

    One tester had the IPB settings correct for friendly URLs and .htaccess on, but forgot to follow the instructions to paste the contents of the .htaccess into an actual .htaccess file in his folder. IPB did not automatically write to the .htaccess file for him.

    I fix the .htaccess issue but the URL is still wrong. You are adding post.php? when friendly URLs and MOD_REWRITE do not add this string to the URL.

    ipb-comments-for-wordpress is missing the contents from your previous version. It only calls up class.ipbcomments and the plugin is currently broken.

    Single sign on is easy with the new IPB auth method. Mind if I add it to your plugin?

    No, I'm not adding 'post.php?' myself anyway. It's using the IP.Board classes to format the URL with BuildSEOUrl, you can see this in the source.

    I've moved the procedural functions into the oop Class in class.ipbcomments, that's where the code is now.

    I don't want to add SSO or support it myself, but you are welcome to use any of my code in your own SSO plugin if you'd like.

    I have been lazy to update my plugin, but I have been getting a ton of emails from people who want it updated, since you are working on it, I thought we could work together. My time is very limited these days. I could add the single sign on and send it to yo so that you can add it to your code.

    I even had a template and user group integration which is what most people ask me for these days. I will see.

    Why is my board iframed into my wordpress comments box? I'm running 1.2.2?

    I had a specific need for this plugin. What I wanted to do was turn off my WordPress comments, and use my forum to manage users and comments/replies. I was not interested in a bridge to duplicate user accounts with WordPress. In my opinion, IP.Board or most forums manage users, groups, replies, and spam much better.

    The 1.2+ version of the plugin will fetch the last 5 comments from your forum topic and display it in the comment area of your WordPress post. There is no frame or iframe.

    Ok, sounds like a plan. I will work on the single sign on. Seems like you will do the user mapping.

    Also, what am I suppose to do with ipb-comments-for-wordpress.css?

    You can edit the .css file to change the way those comments look on your page, and the follow the discussion link, etc.. if you'd like.

    I solved my problem by completely uninstalling the plugin via phpMyAdmin and reinstalling it again.

    Ohh, that must be something with the IP.Board classes. Maybe the path is wrong? Does the user have access to post? Is the forum for the new topic visible and exists?

    Are you creating new posts?

    Post is being fetched as a comment. You may need to exclude original post from being fetched, as it shows up on the fetched comments as a comment.

    If you know what caused the iframe looking thing, I'd love to be able to stop that or prevent it by catching that error. Let me know :)

    I meant to remove the first post, but I left it in during testing to verify that it could connect and fetch posts from the forum.

    The crash was because of my permalink settings: .html

    /%year%-%category%/%postname%.html

    When this happens you have to uninstall the plugin for it to work again.

    You might want to remove the link altogether or change it to:

    Join the conversation.

    In addition, you can parse the link to the username on the comment.

    The crash was because I had uploaded the plugin files to /plugins as as to the right folder under /plugins which caused the database to have two instances of the plugin.

    Could you please explain this part again? I don't understand.

    Some future version will have the text "Follow the discussion" or "Join the conversation" editable in the plugin admin page. At some point there will also be a template, so you can change much of it around however you'd like.

    Actually that wasn't the issue really.
    The real problem with my permalink settings: .html

    /%year%-%category%/%postname%.html

    your script does not accept .html extensions. It should be noted on the instructions that /%year%/%category%/%postname are preferred.

    Oh, ok thanks :)

    I'm not sure why it would matter, but I'll test it myself. I'm not guessing what the permalinks are. I'm using get_permalink() from WP and buildSEOUrl from IPB to get the links.

    Update your version to the latest (1.2.6 as of this reply). There were a few issues that needed fixed.

    After that, please test by making a new post in WordPress. After that, make a new reply on your IP.Board. Wait about 5 minutes and see if the reply shows up in WordPress.

    You may have to wait 5 minutes for the IPB replies to show up in your WordPress comments. You don't have to wait 5 minutes for the forum to receive the new posts, so that's something different.

    Are you choosing a category when you make a post? It should be one of those that you mapped in IPB Comment Settings.

    Just in case, maybe turn cache off while you are testing.

    I have been updating the "Todo" list on the "Other Notes" section of the plugin page, so that you know what I plan on working on as I can.

    What do you mean by direct commenting?

    Please verify that the settings are correct in Settings / IPB Comments.

    Base Url
    It should be the main url to your forum

    Base Path
    It should be the path to the folder that contains initdata.php

    Member ID
    It should be a member with permission to post on your forum, and in the categories you choose under category settings.

    Categories
    Make sure the categories are mapped to an IPB forum category number.

    Save these settings again just in case.

    If any of this helps and you are able to figure out what happened, please let us know in case it helps someone else.
