To help build a user friendly, active forum, we also recommend the following plugins. Weaver for bbPress also supports these plugins with integrated subTheme styling.
- bbPress Pencil Unread – What, a forum without an indicator for Unread posts? Bad idea. This plugin will clearly indicate unread Topics, and bbPress Weaver styles the marker to match the theme. The “Mark all as Read” link is styled as a button that appears at the top right of forum Topic list.
- Private groups – If you need to keep some forums private from the general user population, this plug works great.
