I’m planning on launching a bbPress forum sometime in the months ahead, but want to add a few important features.
1) I’d like to add ‘avatars’ beside each forum, just like vbulletin and other forum setups let you do. Is this possible?
2) I’d like to tie-in ‘recent comments’, ‘new threads’, etc. lists in a widget on my blog. Something that updates in real time as posts are made… Just a way to funnel more folks from the blog into the forums… is this doable as well?
