Links to what was started/created by logged in users
If all I want to do is have links to the topics started (and replies created) by the user who is logged in, and I want something simpler than ProfileGrid and UsersWP, what words should I be using to search http://www.wpbeginner.com? Is there a better way to find which one to use?
Do I even need another plugin to do that? Did I fail to see what I need when I was looking through the bbPress and Style Pack widgets, the bbp Style Pack tabs, and the bbPress shortcodes?
I would also like the options of “Topics Replied To” and “Subscriptions”. I would like for it to look something like
which is part of a screen that looks like
I’ve found plugins that I think I can do this with, but I don’t know how reliable and dangerous those plugins are to use. If possible, I’d like to compare a widget (that can do what I described above) with a page (from a menu) that can also do it. The above two links went to two pictures. Also, please tell me what specific plugin, pages, or etc. was/were used to create the parts of those two pictures (that are specifically of a bbPress page) that I have been describing.
Do the topics at
mean that it can only be done with (what is to me) a lot of code? I’ll learn the code if I have to, but right now I’m looking for something easier, even if it doesn’t give me a lot of control. I know I said I found plugins, but I’d trust what I found so much more if they were discussed in places like wpbeginner and this bbPress support forum. How can I tell if I should go with a plugin?
Adding tags like “user activity”, “activity widget”, and “activity menu” might make this topic helpful for others, unless what I’m looking for is called something else that I don’t know the name of.
Was it wrong to create this reply, if it is bumping?
I added the tags that I mentioned above.
I went from worrying that I wouldn’t be able to find out which ones (I have to choose from) are reliable and safe to finding only two that I would go with (if they were for free). They are
Ultimate Member – User Profile, User Registration, Login & Membership Plugin
UsersWP – User Profile & Registration.
But, they are not for free.
If you know, you might save me a lot of time by telling me if I can find one that will do it for free, because I haven’t stopped searching for one that is for free, and I’m not very knowledgeable about this. If they aren’t, why aren’t they for free, when so many things are?
I’m still trying to confirm that the last two plugins I mentioned only have paid solutions to the problem that I have. Don’t trust my search skills more than I do!
Moreover, I wouldn’t be offended if you pointed out that I wrote something silly (like what I implied about ProfileGrid and UsersWP) especially if it gives me more information, helps me solve my problem, gives me a chance to apologize for being (unnecessarily) offensive, and results in more conversation. For example, I would have appreciated it if someone told me earlier that I should have considered ProfileGrid (as a free solution) more. I’m still looking for more free solutions.
Still, I hope my replies have been useful, or at least harmless.
