    @robin-w is there a filter i could use to output a different template

    i dont want certain items to be seen when i add this shortcode somewhere, and the easiest is copying a template and renaming it and just removing the unwanted code.

    i want to basically just edit this

    // Output template
    bbp_get_template_part( 'content', 'archive-topic' );

    is there a way to change it to

    // Output template
    bbp_get_template_part( 'content', 'archive-topicno' );

    yes, just change it !

    you can then do one of two things

    1. just make a note, so that each time I upgrade this plugin, you’ll need to go back and change the code again

    2. rename the plugin in line 4 – say to

    Plugin Name: bbP shortcodes robkk
    

    and then change the directory the plugin sits in to something else

    Worpdress will then tell you that you have a plugin installed but not activated called bbP shortcodes robkk, and that the plugin bbp shortcodes no longer exists, and you can then delete it.
