Add Recent Topics to your BBPress Forums homepage


Lately I’ve had a couple of people ask me if it was possible to show the most recent topics on the forum homepage of their BBPress Forums. This is quite easy by adding the following snippet to functions.php of your active (child) theme.

You can see this in action on our PressCrew Community Forums. Enjoy!

    Hi ,
    Thanks for the code.
    Can you please provide the short code so that i can list the recent topics the way we can see in recent topic widget.

    I just want the name of the topic to be listed and after clicking on it it should navigate on specific topic.

    Please find the example as below :)

    Recent Topics

    >Storage Disease
    >Basic Disease
    >Heart Failure
    >Respiratory Medicine
