Solved How can I integrate my forum to a wordpress website?

Post by Yada on July 9th 2013, 1:31 am

Hi there,

I hope someone can help me... 

How can I integrate my forum at http://rileykeough.fanforum.biz/ to my wordpress website at www.simplyriley.com. What is the CMS for it, please?

(Just a note: there is already a phpbb forum there but I don't want to use it; I want it replaced with the forumotion forum)

Thank you in advance..

You literally cannot merge them or transfer the data. All you can do is provide a link if wordpress allows that.
