    Hi All,
    These may be silly questions but;
    1. Can you embed third-party forums into your own website (i.e. Could I create directories within a website like mysite.com/forum/xyz and embed a forum from company xyz and another directory like mysite.com/forum/abc and embed a forum from company abc within my own website)?
    2. Can you also embed blogs in a similar fashion (i.e. mysite.com/blog/xyz with blog embeded from company xyz and mysite.com/blog/abc with blog embeded from company abc within my own website)?
    3. If the above two items can be done, would the forums and blogs be updated automatically on mysite.com if new blogs or forum posts were added to the original sites?
    4. Assuming it can be done, can anyone advise how or point me in the right direction to research this or engage someone to do it for me?

    Thanks for your reply Wired. Can I ask one other question, was vBulletin just one suggestion of many options out there or is (in your opinion) 'the best' solution for doing this?

    You're asking for a content aggregator? vBulletin doesn't do that. You'll have to do something custom.

    Not sure if the other forum software out there can do it all, but some might be able to.

    Steve, you can fuel forums via RSS feeds.
