bbPress Info Widgets


These three widgets grab basic information from your bbPress installation. The three widgets will:

  • Display a list of forums
  • Display recent topics (order by number of replies, most recent replies, and recently created topics)
  • Display number of participants in a topic and the number of posts in a topic

These widgets come without any CSS styling, so you will need to adjust the styling yourself. You can find the HTML for the widgets in the /FoolWidgets/views/ folder. All widget files are titled *-widget.php.


  • Topic Info widget displaying information about the topic being viewed. Custom CSS has been applied.
  • Forums Info widget (top) showing all forums with the number of topics and posts. Recent Topics widget (bottom) displays the most recent topics or the most popular topics. Custom CSS has been applied.
