    Hi gerikg,

    this post could help you:

    http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/create-a-new-custom-page-like-wordpress

    1. Make a custom page

    create a page discussion.php in the root forum folder

    add require_once(‘./bb-load.php’); on the top of the page. and write whatever code you want in the page.. that should create a static page with bbpress functions..

    2. Put in the code for the Latest discussions from the main page (?)

    or

    3. Make your own sql query – http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/create-a-new-custom-page-like-wordpress

    Markus

    Any way to do it via plugin folder, functions.php, or theme folder without putting the file in the root? If bbpress upgrades (don’t laugh too hard) I will forget about it.

    Okay here is the update:

    I created discussion.php and put it in root. In the file I put…

    <?php

    require('./bb-load.php');

    bb_repermalink();

    $bb_db_override = false;
    do_action( 'bb_index.php_pre_db' );

    if ( isset($_GET['new']) && '1' == $_GET['new'] ) :
    $forums = false;
    elseif ( !$bb_db_override ) :
    $forums = bb_get_forums(); // Comment to hide forums
    if ( $topics = get_latest_topics( false, $page ) ) {
    bb_cache_last_posts( $topics );
    }
    if ( $super_stickies = get_sticky_topics() ) {
    bb_cache_last_posts( $super_stickies );
    }
    endif;

    bb_load_template( 'discussion.php', array('bb_db_override', 'super_stickies') );

    ?>

    It’s the same as index.php except for the last line I put discussion.php

    Then I created the template file discussion.php. I put in the file:

    <?php bb_get_header(); ?>
    <?php if ( $forums ) : ?>

    <div id="discussions">
    <?php if ( $topics || $super_stickies ) : ?>

    <h2><?php _e('Latest Discussions'); ?></h2>

    <table id="latest">
    <tr>
    <th><?php _e('Topic'); ?> — <?php bb_new_topic_link(); ?></th>
    <th><?php _e('Posts'); ?></th>
    <!-- <th><?php _e('Voices'); ?></th> -->
    <th><?php _e('Last Poster'); ?></th>
    <th><?php _e('Freshness'); ?></th>
    </tr>

    <?php if ( $super_stickies ) : foreach ( $super_stickies as $topic ) : ?>
    <tr<?php topic_class(); ?>>
    <td><?php bb_topic_labels(); ?> <big><a href="<?php topic_link(); ?>"><?php topic_title(); ?></a></big><?php topic_page_links(); ?></td>
    <td class="num"><?php topic_posts(); ?></td>
    <!-- <td class="num"><?php bb_topic_voices(); ?></td> -->
    <td class="num"><?php topic_last_poster(); ?></td>
    <td class="num"><a href="<?php topic_last_post_link(); ?>"><?php topic_time(); ?></a></td>
    </tr>
    <?php endforeach; endif; // $super_stickies ?>

    <?php if ( $topics ) : foreach ( $topics as $topic ) : ?>
    <tr<?php topic_class(); ?>>
    <td><?php bb_topic_labels(); ?> <a href="<?php topic_link(); ?>"><?php topic_title(); ?></a><?php topic_page_links(); ?></td>
    <td class="num"><?php topic_posts(); ?></td>
    <!-- <td class="num"><?php bb_topic_voices(); ?></td> -->
    <td class="num"><?php topic_last_poster(); ?></td>
    <td class="num"><a href="<?php topic_last_post_link(); ?>"><?php topic_time(); ?></a></td>
    </tr>
    <?php endforeach; endif; // $topics ?>
    </table>
    <?php bb_latest_topics_pages( array( 'before' => '<div class="nav">', 'after' => '</div>' ) ); ?>
    <?php endif; // $topics or $super_stickies ?>

    </div>

    <?php else : // $forums ?>

    <div class="bbcrumb"><a href="<?php bb_uri(); ?>"><?php bb_option('name'); ?></a> &raquo; <?php _e('Add New Topic'); ?></div>

    <?php post_form(); endif; // $forums ?>

    <?php bb_get_footer(); ?>

    Now bb_new_topic_link() & topic_class() for sticky does not work.

    all i did was a did a link to: view.php?view=latest

    It works without anything else required.

    @rich pedley When I do view.php?view=latest it goes back to the front page. Are you using a certain plugin?

    @rich-pedley

    no, but I did download the trunk recently (whatever version that is)

    example: http://quirm.net/forum/view.php?view=latest

    I have 1.1-alpha installed and no go!

    so sad.

    Using My Views plugin by _ck_ and activating its module named “Started/Participated Topics”, you will end up with a view named “Latest Discussions” which is exactly what you’re looking for.

    awesome, works perfectly with the plugin.
