WP Vanilla Connect

This plugin allows your WordPress users to authenticate and login to Vanilla forums like Facebook Connect.

WordPress users logon seamlessly via jsConnect and SSO into your Vanilla Forums. Just install jsConnect addon in Vanilla, then copy links and codes from WP to jsConnect and your linked up. Takes about 5 minutes to download and install.

I built this for myself and decided to polish it up for open source release. None of the current methods for linking Vanilla and WordPress work for my server and DNS setup. I will follow the jsConnect project and incorporate updates as I get notified.

This plugin relies completely on jsConnect and cannot modify any parts of Vanilla what-so-ever. If you need special features in Vanilla than this plugin will not work for you. However, if your looking for a simpler way to get your wordpress users logged into a Vanilla forums without hacking up your code files, this is the right plugin for you.

  • Easy to install and setup, takes less than two minutes.

  • Don't have to hack up WordPress and Vanilla config and template filee, which are bound to break on any future platform updates.
