Over the past few months we have seen more and more WordPress developers and designers integrate with Vanilla Forums. Since we love WordPress so much and use it for our own blog, we’ve decided to release a suite of plugins and widgets to help make it easier for you to integrate with Vanilla on your WordPress site/blog.
- <embed> Vanilla – We have updated this plugin to give you more control over embedding and theming.
- Vanilla Discussions Widget allows you to display recent discussions in your Vanilla Forum in your WordPress site. You define how many discussions to show, and you can even filter to specific discussion categories.
- Vanilla Activity Widget allows you to display recent activity in your forum (user registrations, status updates, etc). You define how many activities to show, and you can even filter to activities from users in specific roles (administrator activity, for example).
- Vanilla Recently Active Users Widget allows you to display a list of users who have been recently active on your forum. You define how many users to show.
I will be posting a tutorial soon on “How to integrate Vanilla WordPress plugins and widgets” and putting together some videos on screenr, keep watching the blog.
