Shortcode or Method to display link below Excerpt (4 posts)

    Hello, I just installed the plugin and I'm trying to figure out how to display the link to the topic under an excerpt. All I do is break the site, so I'm wondering if there is a shortcode or a simple call like display_topic_link() which I can throw into my template.

    Hi BottleInfrontomy -

    There isn't a simple function call that I know of, but you could try this:

    bbppt_locate_template( 'comments-bbpress-link.php' );

    That's what the plugin uses internally to load the link. Make sure to call it from within the loop.

    Please let me know how that works for you!

    Thanks, that made some forward movement. However, the plugin is creating topics that link directly out to the source of the post. I aggregate a bunch of links into a single site, when the plugin creates a topic, it is a link out to the source instead of a link to the topic discussion.

    Make sense?

    What is happening is when you go to the forum topics page and click on a topic to post in, its actually a link to the website that was aggregated using FeedWordPress.

    Also, I might be using it incorrectly in my theme because it is only creating a link on the first post of the blog page.

    Mr. Dean,

    Can you assist with something? I can't seem to get a link to display to the topic under each post on the blog page. It only shows on the first of 10. Obviously it is my coding skills that are lacking. It is a basic install using the Pagelines Framework theme.

    Also, each topic created per post is being retired and I can't find a switch to disable that.

    If you prefer I get in touch with you elsewhere, let me know.
