How do I extract a topic/reply excerpt?
I haven’t been able to find a simple solution for building a topic/reply excerpt. I’ve checked for plugins and widgets, but can’t seem to find anything out there. I’m also using Advanced Post List plugin (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/advanced-post-list/) for building excerpts for other (non-bbpress) post types, and it does not seem to know how to to query the database correctly for the forum, topic and reply post types.
What I’m trying to do is build a list of the most recent N posts to the forums (any/all), and list the member name, ideally their avatar, the topic name, and a ~100-200 word excerpt of the post.
Certainly someone has done this before, and I’m just looking in all the wrong places.
Any ideas on how to do this? Many thanks in advance.
