I have connected my Wordpress install and my Vanilla install with the WP plugin "WP Vanilla Connect" and jsConnect on the Vanilla end. I tried the standard "Vanilla Forum" WP plugin and it just didn't work...
Right now, it detects the WP user and will let them login with clicking a single button on Vanilla. There's some things I need to remove -- it lets you register in Vanilla and bypass WP entirely which I can't have -- but I think I can get rid of them by fussing with the theme.
I'm wondering about true SSO. If I have a user land on Vanilla who is not logged into WP, and has never logged into Vanilla, it doesn't see them. When I transition, this is going to be the case for a LOT of users and I need a clean way to shepherd them into Vanilla. If I tell them "You must login over here and then login over there again" ... it's not going to go well and my participation rate will drop. If I use the URL for members who are signed in.. it works.. but I am unsure how to bundle all this together to be truly effective.
