    Hi,

    I am new to bbPress so excuse this probably simple question.

    I need the bbPress to just show Topics when someone goes to the page.
    I don’t need freshness or anything but topics.

    We are using a custom theme. WP 3.9.1

    Is there any easy way to accomplish this?

    Thanks for your help.

    Tom

    Not quite sure what you are after

    Do you just want a list of topics?

    you url followed by /topics will get you to a list of topics, but will include freshness

    eg

    http://www.mysite.com/topics

    come back with a more detailed description of what you want and we’ll try to help

    so when they go to the forum it displays like so:

    Discussion Topic
    Discussion Topic
    Discussion Topic

    then when they click on the topic it goes to that discussion?

    without the words freshness.

    thanks

    ok, several ways you could do this, the best I know is

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/display-posts-shortcode/

    just create a page called anything and put the code on it.

    you’ll be looking for a custom post type of topic.

    see https://github.com/billerickson/display-posts-shortcode/wiki for the arguments you can use

    you can then determine exactly what you display

    but something like

    [display-posts post_type=”topic” posts_per_page=”15″]

    would give a simple list of 15 clickable topic titles per page.
