Hello Everyone,

We recently installed wpForo and it looks great.  We would like to display the latest 6 or 10 of our Recent Posts only on one of our WordPress Pages.  How can we accomplish that?  is there a shortcode we can use?  Your guidance and assistance is greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Hi @themysteryone,

wpForo theme has a built-in multi-layout system. You can configure and display different sections of your forum with different layouts.

More info here: https://wpforo.com/docs/root/categories-and-forums/forum-layouts/

We would like to display the latest 6 or 10 of our Recent Posts only on one of our WordPress Pages

Please navigate to the  Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Topics & Posts Tab. Here you can find options to manage a number of topics and posts per page on forum front-end and lots of other topic/post-front-end management options.

More info here: https://wpforo.com/docs/root/wpforo-settings/topic-post-settings/

Hello Alvina,

Thank you for the message.  I'm a little confused by your answer.  Our website is currently using the DIVI Theme with a chosen layout.  On the home page, we would like to display the most recent posts from the Forum, regardless of topic.  How can we show that on our Home Page using DIVI?

I have attached a screen shot as an example where the home page pulled off the latest 6 posts from the plugin.  Please have a look.

@themysteryone,

The wpForo has a wpForo Recent Posts/wpForo Recent Topics widgets. So you can use it in the DIVI Theme. Once you add one of those widgets, you will need to some CSS customization, to change the style as you want. 

The CSS code should be added in Top Black Admin Bar > Customize > Additional CSS, delete all caches, and press Ctrl+F5 (twice) on that page.

On the home page, we would like to display the most recent posts from the Forum, regardless of topic.  How can we show that on our Home Page using DIVI?

Regarding the recent post page, currently, we don't have such functionality, to display the recent posts on your DIVI homepage. However, we will add it to our to-do list.
