Latest posts and subscribers cannot embed pictures

    Hi I have a couple of queries I hope you can help with..

    I would like to add a widget into my sidebar that displays the content of the last few posts created on any of the forums on the site. The wordpress widgets Latest Posts and Latest Comments don’t work and the existing bbpress ones don’t contain the actual posts. I have read various posts on this and I think I may have to write something myself to do this. However I wanted to check first if there is another way of getting this from bbpress other than creating a new widget?

    The other issue is that subscribers cannot embedd pictures into posts but editors/administrators can. I have auto-embedd links ticked. It looks like it could be a permissision thing but I wanted to check if there is anything in bbpress that prevents subscribers from doing this? Thanks :)

    I have done the latest posts thing fairly quickly, this would be the same for creating a widget I believe.

    Confirmed: Admin & Editor can embed images using <img src=hxxp://example.com/test.jpg />

    Thanks netweb for creating the ticket.

    Lynq – thanks for the code for the latest posts. Did you create a new php file with this code or put it in an existing file?
