    UP :)

    Use the [bbp-forum-index] shortcode https://codex.bbpress.org/shortcodes/

    • Use a regular old WP_Query()
    • Use a widget
    • Use bbp_has_forums()
    • Use the shortcode mentioned above

    There are lots of examples, in the forums, on the codex, and in the bbPress code itself. Also, unclear what you mean by ā€œlatest forum.ā€ Do you mean topics, or replies, or something else?

    Widget and shortcode are not so “themable” like I would. WP_QUERY is right, but then I cannot use bbp_* in my file.

    What I want is use every BBP Functions inside my, eg, single.php: show author, show forums, show topic simple calling bbp_**

    How bbp_has_forums() works? It loads the functions ouside the BBP pages?

    Up bis :)

    bbp_list_forums needs to be run inside a bbpress loop. Which you call with bbp_has_forums(), which creates a forum object. For example.


    bbp_set_query_name('load_stuff');

    if ( bbp_has_forums(array(
    'post_parent' => 0,
    'post_type' => bbp_get_forum_post_type(),
    'posts_per_page' => get_option( '_bbp_forums_per_page', 50 ),
    'orderby' => 'menu_order',
    'order' => 'ASC'
    )) ) : ;

    bbp_get_template_part( 'loop', 'forums' );

    else : ;

    bbp_get_template_part( 'feedback', 'no-forums' );

    endif;

    bbp_reset_query_name();
