    It would be most helpful to be able to see when the first post in a topic was created, to judge whether it is something new or has been woken up by a belated reply (often the case). Can this be added to the display? Is it something the bbP user can do, or does it require internal modifications?

    Thanks, Martin

    where do yo want to show it ?



    Thanks for responding – what I have in mind is illustrated in (it seems I can’t paste an image here – I’m a newbie!)



    There are some different ways you might tackle this.

    One is to use some code like I shared above, which could be added either to a custom plugin (preferred) or else to your theme’s functions.php file.

    Alternatively, you could create a custom template override for loop-single-topic.php and make a change within the <p class="bbp-topic-meta"> section.

    If that’s of interest/if you think you might prefer the second approach, we could explore the code you’d need to add to make it happen 🙂



    Thanks very much for taking the trouble to come up with that. At this point I should admit that I don’t use bbPress myself, but was asking on behalf of (and unbeknownst to) a forum I visit. So I know too little to pursue it myself (at this stage anyway), but will pass on the idea to them in case they want to run with it. They don’t really need more work at the moment!

    I may be back – Martin
