Hi! Thanks for providing such a great forum plugin!

 

I have a scenario that I'm hoping to get your advice on.

 

I have 2 sites:  

 

1. An analytics dashboard (written in vue.js)

2. A wordpress site running WPforo

 

I would like to include / dislpay the wpforo forum within the analytics dashboard site, along with the ability for users to sign in into their forum user account.

 

Does anyone have ideas with regards to a recommended approach? 

 

Many Thanks!

Hi @thorin, you can't use wpForo on a non-WP site.

wpForo is written specifically for WP and although it has its own table structure, its code is heavily dependent on WordPress' functions and tables to operate.

Hi @thorin,

As @fawp already explains, there is no way to use the wpForo plugin on non-WordPress sites. 

The wpForo plugin based on WordPress functions and features.

...along with the ability for users to sign in into their forum user account.

The main system used by all plugins is the user and user authorization system. There is no way to create a WordPress plugin without using the WordPress user system. If you don't use the WordPress user system then the plugin is not a WordPress plugin.
