    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.

    Do you have any live examples ?

    Would a Wordpress Blog + xenForo as the Comments work for this ?

    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.

    Oh, here is an example.


    Can anyone tell me if this is possible with word press? A article and thread that match and comments and posts stay in synch?

    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

    XenPorta is unemployed.

    The threads didn't mention the features I was talking about. I did make a post in XenPorta's thread but he might not have seen them. I will send him a PM.
