Are you trying to add a forum to a blog, or convert the blog into a forum somehow?

Must admit this is a little confusing, very much aware of users (myself included) interested to merge wordpress and SMF but not convert wordpress to SMF.

Is it even possible to convert wordpress to SMF?

well I mean, anything is possible with enough know-how and time or the money to pay someone that has the know-how and time

so yes it's possible, no it's not something easily done, and would be a custom job

Do you actually mean WordPress or do you mean bbpress (the forum software plugin for WordPress) ?

If the latter read this thread:  https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=575897.0
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with questions on astrophysics or theology.  You will get better and faster responses by asking homeless people in the street. Thank you.

On the other hand you could have a wordpress install and an SMF forum on the same site BUT those are not integrated and so would have separate logins.

That's the approach I have taken.

https://gsx1400owners.org/   (defaults to https://gsx1400owners.org/wp/) which is my cover page / basic info / flashy part.

In the wordpress menu I have a forum button which takes people here:
https://www.gsx1400owners.org/forum/

Most users then simply bookmark the forum directly.

Oh just realised I necro'ed  an old thread but the advice is good for someone asking this question in future)

How you can help SMF

"Before you allow people access to your forum, especially in an administrative position, you must be aware that that person can seriously damage your forum. Therefore, you should only allow people that you trust, implicitly, to have such access." -Douglas
