Looking to use a plugin for the wordpress side that supports conditionals. Plausibly this or similar https://wordpress.org/plugins/if-widget/
Is there a variable for number of user posts? In an ideal world the user would be logged in but also have a minimum of 1 post before the widget would be visible. Wordpress side is no issue but it is the wpforo post count check that I would like to incorporate.
If not, any other ideas. Thanks.
