How to edit look of 'Vanilla Discussions' widget on wordpress?

edited March 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8


Can anyone point me in the direction of how to edit the 'Vanilla Discussions' widget for wordpress? I would like to make a few changes to match the font and text size to the rest of my page.



  • Options

    I found the widget code could be edited in Wordpress: Plugins - installed Plugins - Vanilla Forums - Edit - vanilla-forums/widgets.php

    This line shows the code to display the post:

    echo '<li><a href="'.vf_combine_paths(array($link_url, 'discussion/'.$Discussion->DiscussionID.'/'.vf_format_url($Discussion->Name)), '/').'">'.$Discussion->Name.'</a></li>';

    Is there any way to add the last person to comment's username and/or the category the discussion was posted in to that code?

    Anyone with a more advanced knowledge of code who can provide those answers will have the gratitude of myself and my forum users!

    Thanks a lot,
