I recently purchased Builder and am in the process of learning that system to build my first site which is being hosted at Bluehost. It seems like a great system so far.

I would like to include a discussion forum in my site and noticed that iThemes uses IP Board, which seems like a great system.  If I were to use the same discussion forum software, how would I go about integrating the discussion board into my Wordpress site?  While I am pretty tech savvy, I am not a programmer- that is why I bought Builder.

Are there issues with two user accounts (Wordpress and IP Board) that need to be addressed with Single Sign On?  Is something like this needed- IPBWI for WordPress (http://ipbwi.com/products/)?

What else do I need to know to make this work without a lot of headaches?

Thanks in advance for any direction you can provide a newbie.

Hi Doug,

IP.Board isn't actually a WordPress plugin.  A plugin that we'd recommend for something like this on a WordPress site would be Simple:Press.  You can take a look at their site and they should be able to answer any questions you'd have about integrating their plugin into your site!

Let us know if you have any other questions!
