    Hiya,

    Greetings and thanks for posting on the forums.

    Is there anyway to add latest posts to sidebar?

    Unfortunately its not possible out of the box to do that. The plugin does not have any sidebar widgets which you can place and get the latest forums to display in the sidebar.

    However you can use a plugin like : http://wordpress.org/plugins/shortcodes-in-sidebar-widgets/ and use shortcodes in the sidebar and list your forums there using the shortcodes.

    sorry this site takes some getting used to this issue is not resolved

    We try to answer the posts as soon as possible but bumping on the thread will push it down the list as it refreshes the timestamp. I hope you understand that.

    I hope that helps. Please feel free to ask if you have more questions on the same.

    Cheers

    Also the buttons dont match my themes …how do edit so I dont have to see ugly system buttons?

    Can you please give me a link to the page where you have got your forums so that I can suggest some custom CSS to match the buttons with your theme ?

    Ummm I don’t know what bumping is? When I looked at the forum list I saw that my own additions were counting as responses so I created a fresh post and didnt touch it…It still took forever for a response. Its strange you cant remove your own post…The layout of this sites forum takes some getting used to.

    Anyway thank you for showing up…

    What shortcodes might I use in relation to your plugin? I am only familiar with shortcodes included in a theme by the developer. Is there some standard list of shortcodes somewhere that work for any forum plugin? I hate, hate, hate to ask questions..lol buuut, ..is there some documentation for this plugin or is it supposed to be so basic none is needed? It seems like its simple but if you want any additional functionality its very difficult.

    You will see the other buttons on the sidebar this is the look i would like to achieve. Really its just a flat button style with a border around it..also the search button is too close to the box..looks very strange.

    The creator of this plugin should have some sort of widget to add to sidebar posts and comments that’s a very basic feature for a forum…just a suggestion.

    There is not much documentation required for the plugin as its simple. However the link below will explain the shortcodes.

    If you want to do any custom modification, then it gets difficult if you don’t know your way through. Adding a custom functionality is just like writing the plugin itself.

    Unfortunately I don’t see anything on that page. Did you create any forums yet ?
