[resolved] WP/Vanilla integration, page question (6 posts)

    I'm working on an integration of WP and Vanilla. Is there a way to create a WP Page, that goes to the Vanilla forum, instead of to a WP page? In other words, I'd like to be able to set the URL of the links.

    You could put a redirect in your .htaccess file.

    Or make a page with a slug "vanilla" and have Vanilla installed at http://www.yoursite.com/vanilla/ (when your wordpress home page is at http://www.yoursite.com)

    If you have an actual file located in a directory that's named the same as a slug for a page you create in WordPress, the actual file will override the WordPress page.

    I'm doing it on my blog with 'my photos' and 'my pink house' pages. I created blank pages that have the same address as files on my server. I just created the pages in wordpress so they would show up in the sidebar easily.

    I'm also using a redirect in my .htaccess file to redirect anyone who types in http://joshnichols.com/blog to http://joshnichols.com

    Wow. That's an amazing tip. I wish I had read that about 10 months ago when it was written!
