After testing a WP/Vanilla integration (with Janine) for a few days, I think I'm ready to try the real thing. I have a NEW WordPress install that I want to integrate with an existing, year-old Vanilla board.
I'm pretty good at HTML, CSS, and the like, but PHP, MySQL, et.al. is still mostly foreign to me. I'm not even sure I know how to completely back up my message board. (Help!) I'm not asking for a tutorial (although I'd welcome it!), but any hints and advice on how I might go about this (after the mystery backup), without making a total mess of everything, are welcome and appreciated.
