    I have searched for this but no answer. I also have "subscribed" to the Vanilla community but must wait for "approval". so, i thought some php guru could help me out :)
    So, i have installed and integrated Vanilla forum and WP 2.0.4 (only DB integrated). Now, i want the Vanilla forum to "theme" to my site theme. Example; if you goto http://www.mytimewithgod.net/xdforum, you will see that the forum is in the "content" area with a WP left and right sidebar and a WP header and footer. This is the exact way i want the Vanilla forum to "integrate".
    The path of WP is /doc_root and the path for the vanilla forum is /doc_root/forum. So the vanilla forum stuff does not know about the WP functions and theme functions and stuff. I have tried to include wp-blogheader.php in the forum (vanilla) head.php file but get a wp-includes cache error. Also tried to include the themes functions in this head.php file, to no avail. Can anyone here help me integrate my site theme with the vanilla forum?

    I took the liberty of tagging your query with "vanilla".
    Then i clicked the tag. :-)

    There have been a few threads here, quite recently, on this topic. Hopefully one of them will lead to more help.

    Thank you HandySolo! Unfortunately not. I have tried the devlounge instructions many times, to no avail. Also, i want to do something different than what that site is doing (using header banner). I want my froum to show in the middle (content area) of the page.

    How about this documentation that Mark did - http://lussumo.com/docs/doku.php?id=vanilla:integration:wordpress.

    Yeah that is the integration of DB's. I have done that with no problems and am looking to now integrate vanilla into my existing theme.
    Example; if you goto mytimewithgod.net/xdforum, you will see that the forum is in the "content" area with a WP left and right sidebar and a WP header and footer. This is the exact way i want the Vanilla forum to "integrate".

    carnold,
    Did you get this figured out? It looks like the answer might be "sort of." :)

    It also looks like with a bit of CSS tweaking, the forum could look exactly like you were hoping - if I understand you correctly.

    Let me know. I'd be willing to play with the CSS a bit. I'm thinking of doing something similar with my site.

    Best,
    Ryan

    Yes, with the help of filosofo, it is now intergrated into my theme. I also was able to integrate the DB (so users only have to login once). I will be happy to help, if i can.
