I forgot to mention, I use the widget (BBPRESS- Recent replies) which work well but am looking o achive the same results via a MENU drop down (shortcoode) or simular hyperlink.
I use the following to show latest Topics – https://uktechhub.com/forums/view/latest-topics/
Looking o achieve simular for Replies ?
I have manged to come up with a way to achieve what I want and thought I would share it with others on this BBPRESS forum.
So I wished to show an activity stream that lists the most recent post /replies, which can include many posts from the same topic as the standard widget does already, but also expand the each post so it is readable by default (like a preview window) ?
So I already use GD Power Search for bbPress and have created a custom search parameter via hyperlink which shows the newest post regardless of where they may come from as either a single topic or multiple, the key is post post/reply freshness.
The link I used (added to menu) is (https://uktechhub.com/forums/search/-/?gdpos=power-search-request&gdpos_search_types=reply) which performs a search each time for newest post/reply and displays the text box.
A crude workaround, but it works 😉
🙂 thanks for posting the solution
