  • Hello everyone,
    I am having the most unpleasant time trying to figure out how to get the wordpress header to sit above my smf forum.

    WordPress is root, smf is sub. I have looked online for about a week now, treacherously with no luck!

    SMF and wordpress have been out for a long time, and I have seen dozens of sites that have accomplished this (emailed them too!) but with no response.

    I mean… there has got to be someone here who is willing to share?! 😀

    Its the only thing from making my site live. I came from a full blown joomla site which is easy to integrate such things with a click of a button.

    Try looking at this Codex Article:

    It seems that calling your WordPress header would require a require statement (or comparable). Check out the Article for details.

    Also, search the forum with a query similar to this: There are so many people that want to integrate WordPress into existing static or dynamic websites. There has got to be some helpful information somewhere!

    Tried it all, not sure where to place the codes on the SMF part. I have asked on SMF, and they are telling me to ask

    I managed to find where I have to place the code.

    It goes right under the body tags in index.template

    I am getting an odd error, as if it can’t locate the file.

    I am getting something like this:
    I put the code right under the body tag and I got this error:

    Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required ‘./wp-blog-header.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib64/php:/usr/lib/php’) in /home23/site/public_html/dog-forum/Sources/Load.php(1742) : eval()’d code on line 181

    I have this right under the <body> tag
    /* Wp header */
    define(‘WP_USE_THEMES’, false);

    WordPress is in my root, smf is in a sub.

    Any ideas?

    I got the header to show up finally on the forum, but thats all thats showing.

    Its calling my header but not displaying the forum under it? Any ideas?

    Here is the code I am using.

    /* Short and sweet */
    define(‘WP_USE_THEMES’, false);
    require(‘”my server path”/wp-blog-header.php’);

    define(‘WP_USE_THEMES’, false); get_header();

    I found the folders in smf I am suppose to put these into, thing is the rest of the smf forum isn’t loading???? Any ideas?

    Any Update on this I really cant find any help with this??????
