Trying to display SMF Welcome or Login on a Wordpress frontend

(1/2) > >>

RL:
Hi guys

So this is the setup I have:
Wordpress site: site.com
SMF forum: site.com/forum

Just trying to get a "Hello <username>" to display on the Wordpress site's homepage with username being filled in from the SMF forum. Not looking to integrate logins or databases here, just want to display the text plainly.

Using SSI.php on a plain PHP file, eg: site.com/test.php I am able to get the welcome message correctly (if I am logged in on the forum, it shows the username, if not shows the login link) but when I put the same code to the Wordpress site it always shows me as a guest. I have tried everything available to no avail. What am I doing wrong.

Appreciate the help.

What is the code you are using right now exactly? I know WP and SMF don't always like to play nice together, but I'd think what you are trying to do should be fairly easy to achieve.

Thank you for the reply. Using the same code on both the Wordpress page and the PHP page test.php:

require("/var/www/html/site/forum/SSI.php");
ssi_welcome();

On the Wordpress page it only shows up as a guest regardless of being logged in on the SMF forum, on the test.php it shows up correctly.

Illori:
are you running the test.php file from the same location as the wordpress install?

Kindred:
you are going to have issues....   there are known collisions between SMF and wordpress variable names.


however, in SMF
