bbPress Live

bbPress Live allows you to pull data from a bbPress 1.0 forum using the new XML-RPC publishing API in bbPress.

bbPress Live allows the display of information from a bbPress 1.0 forum from inside a WordPress blog.

Specifically, it provides two new widgets:

  • bbPress Forum List - Provides a list or table of forums
  • bbPress Latest Topics - Provides a list or table of the latest topics

Each widget can be used multiple times, and configured individually.

There are also two functions for use in themes. These functions return a raw php array which can be manipulated inside the theme:

  • bbpress_live_get_forums() - Provides an array of forums
  • bbpress_live_get_topics() - Provides an array of the latest topics

bbPress Live can only connect to a bbPress forum running bbPress with a version of 1.0 or higher. The bbPress blog must have XML-RPC enabled in it's settings.
