[resolved] WP - punBB integration (5 posts)

    I try this plugin to use WP comment system with punBB:

    WordPress & punBB integration>

    It is integrated well into the Admin panel.
    The following code should be inserted into the main template but it does not even appear.

    <?php ih_add_comment($post->ID); ?>

    What am I missing ?

    Well, I figured it out, at last.

    At the end of the script, in the <h2> tag, the apostrophe in the name was not escaped and effectively killed the plugin. Now, it works as expected :)

    Though, I ran into another problem. My wp uses utf-8 with iso-8859-2 collation and the posts transferred to punBB appears as unencoded utf-8.
    I wonder, if it could be circumvented, anyhow.

    Now, if you combine it with the liewcf/almosteffortless integration hack and you cannot escape comment spam otherwise then you have a real alternative.

    This is not a bump :)
    I would need some professional assistance.
    I have got myself into a mild argument with people at the punBB forums regarding this plugin.
    They thought my "fix" to be useless, I suppose due to my improper explanation. Though, they missed the point that it worked. I put the plugin up into my open space, here:
    WP2punBB Plugin
    in the directory WP2punBB.
    At the end of the script, there is a div class=wrap section with the incriminated apostrophe.
    I kindly ask you for a professional explanation how this affects the underlying code and what is the proper wording for it.

    gets a 403 Forbidden.

    If you are showing actual code, a .phps or .txt file is better, or publishing it at pastebin.
