add a "Featured Image" to a forum

  • Hello bbpress gurus,

    First, thanks a lot for this wonderful plugin :)

    Now please forgive my French looking English…

    I’m using bbpress on a site where I’d like to show up on some template page a list of recent posts in the forum. get_posts is my friend and that’s ok.

    But I’d also like to show a nice picture of the categories in which those recent posts where posted. Well, “regular” posts on WP now can have a “Featured Image”. And I looked to add this to my forums as well.

    And I think I made it

    But not sure ^^


    I added this line in bbp-admin/bbp-forums.php :

    add_meta_box(‘postimagediv’, __(‘Featured Image’), ‘post_thumbnail_meta_box’, $this->post_type, ‘side’, ‘low’);

    in function attributes_metabox() (~ l.190)

    And it seems to be working.

    But as far as I can tell, there’s maybe 50% luck this code not doing some very bad things in the same time ^^

    PLease advice, if there is a better way to achieve this…
