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?
