I posted this same question on WP Forum, but it's completely dead.

So, there is a great tutorial in this blog about showing post count in bbPress at this link.

According to that article, to show post count in bbPress, I should replace

<?php bb_profile_data(); ?>

with the following code

<?php bb_profile_data(); ?>
<div id="user-stats">
 global $bb_table_prefix;
 $query1 = "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM ".$bb_table_prefix."posts WHERE poster_id = $user_id AND post_status = 0";
 $query2 = "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM ".$bb_table_prefix."posts WHERE poster_id = $user_id AND post_status = 0 AND post_position = 1";
 echo "Forum Posts: <b>".$bbdb->get_var($query1)."</b> &nbsp; ";
 echo " Topics Started: <b>".$bbdb->get_var($query2)."</b>"; ?>

But I've only one question. Where in the world is that bb_profile_data(); tag. Please help me, it's very important for me...Thanks you guys!!

  • If you're on a UNIX-like OS, and have shell access, try this from the bbPress root directory: find . -exec grep -iHn bb_profile_data {} \; – Pat J May 24 '13 at 16:21

From this reference you get the following info:

Function and Method Cross Reference


Defined at:
/bb-includes/functions.bb-template.php -> line 2405
Referenced 1 times:
/bb-templates/kakumei/profile.php -> line 30

so you should check your profile template.

If you have ssh access to your site, try

# grep "bb_profile_data" -R /the/path/to/your/site/

in the shell command line, to search for the bb_profile_data string in all the files within the /the/path/to/your/site/ directory.


In bbPress 2.3.2 you seems to have instead:

 <p class="bbp-user-forum-role"><?php  printf( __( 'Forum Role: %s',      'bbpress' ), bbp_get_user_display_role()    ); ?></p>
 <p class="bbp-user-topic-count"><?php printf( __( 'Topics Started: %s',  'bbpress' ), bbp_get_user_topic_count_raw() ); ?></p>
 <p class="bbp-user-reply-count"><?php printf( __( 'Replies Created: %s', 'bbpress' ), bbp_get_user_reply_count_raw() ); ?></p>

in the file /plugins/bbpress/templates/default/bbpress/user-profile.php to display the topics and replies count. You can view the source here.

  • Thanks for replying. I'm using bbPress 3.2 and there is no /bb-includes/functions.bb-template.php path in my bbPress. – Hardeep Asrani May 24 '13 at 12:05
