Just testing a few things in the forum software to see how they respond on WP sites...

Just in case it involves some code, here's one example of what it looks like:

PHP:
<?php if ( ! xf_option( array( 'comments', 'filter', 'avatar' ) ) ) : ?>
    <span class="forum-comment-avatar">
        <a href="<?php echo esc_url( "{$url}members/" . $fields['user']['user_id'] ); ?>" rel="nofollow">
            <?php if ( ! empty( $fields['user']['avatar'] ) ) : ?>
                <img src="<?php echo esc_url( $fields['user']['avatar'] ); ?>" class="forum-comment-avatar-image" width="40" height="40" />
            <?php else : ?>
                <span class="xfwp-avatar"><?php echo substr( $fields['user']['username'], 0, 1 ); ?></span>
            <?php endif; ?>
        </a>
    </span>
<?php endif; ?>

Just a heads up—the comment function you see here is a 3rd party addon (UW Forum Comments) and not compatible with XFtoWP.

It's time to make your forum a valuable part of your website, not stay an outsider. Connect your
XenForo forum to your WordPress sites with
XFtoWP!

XFtoWP comes with powerful functionality to ensure a reliable connection to your forum and increase user engagement across both websites. With fast setup and point-and-click features, XFtoWP will seamlessly blend into your publishing workflow and become a part of your website your users will look out for.

See XFtoWP's top features:

  • Thread comments: Quickly create and connect threads to use as highly functional blog comments. Auto-increment the comments count total with the number of forum replies to add instant activity to your posts.
    • Use the new XenForo meta box on posts, pages, and custom post types to create/connect threads
    • Ships with two comment styles: Minimal and Thread view
    • Automatically insert comments template below posts. Replace WP comments or combine into tabs.
    • Cut-off long replies and show on the "click to expand" button to keep your comments section readable.
    • Don't show all replies at once, choose how many replies per page to show and load more with a button click.
    • Control what shows up in your comments. Filter out images, code, avatars, and other parts of replies.
    • XFtoWP minimizes the amount of requests made to your forum and loads replies without notice.
    • For your convenience you can view a log of all connected threads from the plugin settings page.
  • Forum widget: Display lists of hand-picked content from your forums. Easily customize with simple Widget settings and re-use anywhere you can use Widgets in WordPress.
    • Show latest posts, featured threads, and a simple forum listing
    • Toggle sections to show only relevant content per widget
    • Combine all sections into a tab widget or display inline
    • Reuse and create custom widgets anywhere WordPress uses widgets (even template tags)
  • Developer tools: Use XFtoWP as the foundation for all of your custom XenForo to WordPress development.
    • Make live requests to the XenForo API without any extra authorization
    • Access XFtoWP's stored data about your site from the wp_options and wp_postmeta table
    • Enable Thread comments on custom post types and extend other core features with hooks and filters
    • Completely customize templates with a child theme template override
    • Clean CSS makes styling XFtoWP easy and lightweight JavaScript that stays out of the way with no jQuery or other library dependencies
  • Other features
    • Use the XFtoWP admin panel to refresh forum data and customize its features
    • Plugin is fully ready for translation from the built-in Strings Manager
    • Highly optimized API requests that ensures no data waste and an invisible refresh process when made from the frontend
    • Styled to match your theme and built with WP code standards. Data sanitization/validation on user-entered input and use of proper hooks for comments features
    • One-click updates from the WordPress admin panel ensures you get the latest version of XFtoWP sent to your site
    • Access downloads, documentation, and official support from your own private account on XFtoWP.com
  • Coming soon: User account syncing from WordPress to XenForo
Quoting a long and crazy block of text to see how long quotes read in the comments list.
