> Hey everyone.
> I'm new to this list and a novice PHP coder, but I wanted to share some
> code I've been working on.
> The goal is to enable bbPress moderators to "promote" a topic to show up
> in a Wordpress loop. Clicking on the permalink of the bbPress topic within
> the Wordpress loop, will take you directly to bbPress topic page. Any
> changes made to topic on the bbPress side would also show up automatically
> in the loop. (There is a similar functionality in Drupal, and I was
> considering migrating my Wordpress blog to Drupal, but it turned out to be
> huge pain.)
> My approach was to take advantage of the "sticky" functionality in
> bbPress. The idea is to retrieve "super sticky" topics from the bbPress
> database tables, and merge it into an array of Wordpress posts. Then, use
> foreach to create a custom loop which displays the combined list of
> Wordpress and bbPress posts. From a user's perspective, you would simply
> click the "Stick topic (to front)" in bbPress to promote the topic to
> Wordpress.
> So far, I've been successful in modifying the index.php file for the
> Classic theme to achieve this functionality. There is some pagination
> issues, but it seems to be working fairly well so far.
> I'm not sure if it could be turned into a plugin or not. I've attached
> what I have so far as a text file. The code assumes the latest versions of
> bbPress and Wordpress, and that bbPress was installed with Wordpress
> integration enabled. Also, the tables for bbPress and Wordpress are in the
> same database.
> Any suggestions for streamlining or improving this would be greatly
> appreciated:
> Thanks,
