    Honestly this plugin is not for a beginner wordpress user. The installation page that doesn't quite add enough info on "how to" integrate your forum into WordPress seems to be pretty sketchy (UNLESS) I pay $99/mo for you to tell me how to do it? When you can find someone to do it for you for a One time fee of $99.

    I feel that the installation page should be alittle more descriptive even if your tryin to rip people off with (PREMIUM) support.

    I am the developer of this plugin.

    I have no premium support service for this plugin, so I'm not sure where you are getting that US$99/month fee from. I think you may be confused with my premium menu service which is unrelated to this plugin.

    I don't know of any way to write better instructions for this plugin. It requires significant knowledge of WordPress to use it and is definitely not aimed at beginners. Is there anything in particular you think could be added to the instructions to make it more obvious?

    Some of us aren't programmers. I'm comfortable with WordPress, but I can't figure out your plugin. For starters, I have no clue what code to wrap the snippets around - for example, I'm using the twenty-eleven theme just to see if I can get this. I know I want my forum to have the header and the footer of the site (that's really it). So I tried to start with the header, and I wrapped those snippet codes (( <?php pixopoint_theme_integrator( 'start', '1' ); ?> )) from just below <body> to just above the "main content" div so as to grab all the php for the header.

    I did remember to change the second snippet to "end", and I also understand that for the footer, I'd have to change the 1 to 2 (but I haven't gotten that far yet).

    My admin page isn't updated as yours says it should - it's not giving me any code snippets to add to my forum (phpBB3). And I'm not savvy enough to try and write the code myself.

    So I went back and took a second look, and saw what it meant about a location to HTML. However, when I followed it to the plugin's folder, there is nothing even remotely looking like HTML code in that folder.

    Is there any way at all you can dummy down the installation? Maybe have different install files depending on the type of software to be integrated? (in my case, phpBB). Yet again I found something I could actually use, and I can't figure it out =/

    I don't think it's possible to dummy this plugin down.

    I'm not sure why the files wouldn't be turning up in the folder.
