Shortcode for Member’s Activity
The bbPress Add On includes one shortcode to display a member’s activity (topics or replies created).
Sample shortcode usage:

Shortcode attributes include:
* activity_type: Accepts ‘topic’ or ‘reply’. Default is ‘topic’
* bbp_user_id: Accepts any user ID. Omit this attribute to load the current user’s entries. Default is the current_user->ID.
* count: The number of entries to show. Default is ‘5’.
* show_date: Optionally show the entry date. Default is ‘false’.
* show_excerpt: Optionally show a 50-character excerpt of the entry. Default is ‘false’.
* title: An optional title for the shortcode output, wrapped in the h2 class=”widgettitle” format.
