Anybody's interested in doing WordPress templates?

    Hi,

    I worked out a beautiful way to integrate WordPress 3 with XenForo: imagine you have your site located at domain.com. You install XenForo at root level. You install WordPress somewhere else, let's say /wp3. Now, by using a WordPress plugin and a XenForo addon, you can access WordPress stuff at domain.com/blog. Simply speaking: /blog is completely mapped to /wp3. And also, you can use ALL XenForo's helpers inside the WordPress theme's template (the plugin is smart enough to serve legacy theme when the WordPress installation is access directly via /wp3). You can display avatar (with cards), relative timestamp, breadcrumb, title, description, etc.

    The only problem is I'm short of time and I can't edit all WordPress template to make it matched nicely inside XenForo. Anybody wants to do this? Please note that this WordPress plugin and XenForo addon are going to be released freely to community.

    Thank you. I will try to make a few screenshot soon.

    I can see what I can whip up :) I'll try to work on it this week or weekend. The only problem is if it's ok to use the xenforo's code to produce an identical wordpress theme.

    The idea is creating a WordPress theme which uses XenForo's CSS. You can require XenForo's CSS from your template and they will be loaded for you, etc. When you have time, please send me your email address (via PM/Convo) and I will send you my current work :D
