How to show bbPress forum topic in WordPress Loop?

    Hello everyone,

    I want to display a bbPress forum topic within The Loop in WordPress. The idea is that it would appear as an excerpted blog entry like the others, but when you click the permalink, it would take you to the corresponding bbPress forum topic page where you can post comments.

    For example, it would be great if there was to query bbPress forum topics that are tagged with “front page”, and display those forum posts together with blog posts within WordPress in chronological order.

    The best scenario would be a little “Show in WordPress Loop” checkbox that you can check next to individual forum topics in bbPress. That way you can select certain topics to link to on the WordPress front page.

    Does anyone have suggestions on how to do this? Would this be possible with a plugin of some kind?

    This isn’t exactly what you’re looking for, but it lets you put a list of your bbpress topics in a sidebar on your WordPress site:

    * https://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/bbpress-latest-discussion-for-wp/

    Hey bobby, thanks. This is close to what I want to do, but I’d like to be able to combine select forum posts and blog posts into a single list. Maybe there’s way to modify the plugin to do so?

    Now that I think about it, is there a way to do this by pulling the RSS free from bbPress into WordPress? What do you think?

    That would work. A quick Google search found this under #3:

    The download is here:

    I’ve never used it, but it looks like what you want.

    Good luck!

    Hey bobby, thanks for the links to RSS aggregator plugin. The only problem I see is synchronizing the feed. For example, if you edit the post in bbPress, will it automatically update it in the WordPress loop also? Or will you have to manuallly edit it in WordPress also. I will have to investigate and see.

    It would depend on how often the RSS feed is cached by the WordPress plugin.

    Good luck!

    I found this method to include forum topics within wordpress:

    ‘<?php include_once(ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/rss.php’); wp_rss(‘http://example.com/bbforum/rss.php’, 5); ?>’

    Is that any help? Still not sure how to format it entirely though.
