Wordpress & Forum Integration... How?

Hi all,

I'm wondering if anyone can provide me with information on how to integrate or embed forum software into a Wordpress based site.

For an example of what I mean, I'll refer to a favorite site of mine, Lynn Terry's ClickNewz:

ClickNewz! Internet Marketing Blog | Internet Marketing blog by Lynn Terry with How-to, Tips, Reviews, Case Studies & Ideas to help you succeed online. Known as the Voice of Integrity in IM… - Her wordpress platform
ClickNewz Members Area - Her vBulletin platform

Basically what I'm looking for is a way to achieve a similar layout in which the header is constant between the two platforms as she has done. I asked her personally, but she said she had the work outsourced and wasn't sure on the details.

Can anyone help point me in the right direction?

Thanks a lot.

    If you want to use vBulletin Forum, then you'd need to look for a WP to vB bridge.

      I was looking for this information too. So, if you had to choose between the Simple Press Plugin and the bbPress Forum plugin - which would you say is the easiest to operate? The other recommendation vbulletin may be out of our price range.

      I've never done anything having to do with forums and I want to assure myself that I'll be able to handle it on my own.

      thanks!
