Question

WordPress and SMF Together:

by In-Correct / March 25, 2013 2:41 PM PDT

I have installed SMF. How do I connect it to WordPress Installation, so that way people don't have to have separate accounts? ( I think it is called Logging In Globally. If you log in "Here", you are automatically and simultaneously logged in "There" )

Answer
Move SMF to WordPress

If you do not want to have separate accounts for SMF forum and for WordPress, you can easily convert your smf forum to WordPress, and control your forum and website and other web projects from one admin panel. It saves a lot of time and efforts.
You may check out CMS2CMS, an automated migration service which can unite your SMF and WordPress.
