I may want more than this in the future but this is something I will need when I make the move. Articles is how I make my living.

The capability that I want for now is a front page made up of articles about certain products. The articles on the front page have a corresponding thread in the forum.

When a comment is made in on the article it appears both on the front page and in the thread. It also does the same when someone posts to a thread. It appears in both places.

Can threads be promoted to articles using wordpress and the comments and posts be kept synched up automatically. If it can this can work. I had been told that word press could not do it.

Wordpress might not be able to do it quite yet.
I am not sure how the WP+VB plugin works at vB.org

Another Option (besides waiting for this in xenforo) could be to use Joomla.
Joomla has a neat project called Jfusion which allows integration with other
Joomla is about to release Joomla 1.6 (2.5 years in the making from 1.5) and Jfusion will be updated to 2.0 at that time. I do think that a Xenforo plugin for Jfusion will come out once Jfusion 2.0 is released, which should be close to when Joomla 1.6 is released.

I know of a site that did what you are requesting.​
it is Joomla + vB

You might want to buddy up with this guy:
http://xenforo.com/community/threads/looking-for-a-skilled-coder-paid.6531/#post-94585

I don't know where else to post. I'm quite sure this is the best place where to post it.

I'm looking for some skilled coder to build an article system integrated in xf, but autonomous.
Here is list of features i want in this article system (just to name what i'm thinking about it right now, this list is not definitive and will be changed).
-Attachment system, indipendent from the xf one (but it can be the same, if you copy+paste the xf attachment system it's ok for me)
-Comment system at the bottom of the Articles, just like the profile comments here on the members page. It's ok if you copy+paste this too.
-Categories and Tagging system (tags are pre-defined and every category is associated with some tags). It would be great, but not necessary, if tags and categories can be defined in the Control Pannel.
-Draft system

You will be paid (make your offer) for this. If you are interested, write me a pm conversation or add me directly on skype, i'm vedivad.

Thank you.
