Recent topics and recent posts show nothing after update
As the topic title, after updating to the latest version 2.1, recent topics and recent posts widgets stopped showing any content. I even removed the old ones and added new widgets, but they still don't show anything. Any ideas?
It loads via Ajax now. I noticed the first time the page loaded that it did not load either. But after a refresh, it DID load. Note that is load via Ajax and is delayed a bit. Like 8-10 seconds or so. It is allowing the rest of the page to load first, then it will load.
If it still doesn't load after a few refresh's and the standard load of 8-10sec, then you should be worried.

Upon checking we could see that AJAX functionality is not working. On cross-checking, it seems that there is an issue in the AJAX script and it seems it can be only solved by AJAX syntax by adding HTML and JAVA script code. This seems to be an error that should be resolved on the developer's end.
Replace the file /plugins/wpforo/widgets/RecentTopics.php with the one from version 2.0.9. While it works. AJAX is not always good, ran into a similar issue. On my site, new posts are displayed in the header. Users stare at a blank page for a few seconds.
It is a bad idea to mix php files from other/older versions.
