This Plugin changes the ‘freshness ‘ that bbPress displays on topic and forum lists (eg 4 hours ago) to the date of the last post to that forum or topic (eg 17th January 2014 at 5.15pm).
It also allows you to set the heading for this new date format.
The existing (bbpress) Recent Topics widget works with date, but a revised Recent Replies Widget to display the date format called (Last Post) Recent Replies is included.
- Go to Dashboard>plugins>add new
- Search for ‘bbp last post’
- Click install
- and then activate
- To set the heading – go to Dashboard>settings>bbp last post and follow the instructions to select what heading to display.
- If you are using the (bbPress) Replies widget, go to Dashboard>appearance>widgets, remove your existing ‘(bbPress) Recent Replies’ widget, and replace with the ‘(Last Post) Recent Replies’ Widget
After trying to code things myself (to keep the number of plugins down), I found it easier simply to install this.
Exactly what I was looking for. Awesome stuff!
It would be great to be able to set the “freshness” to display the title of the latest post, instead of a date as this would be better for SEO.
Very useful feature. The plugin creator is super helpful and this makes this plugin even more valuable.
