A new version has been uploaded to the Marketplace. Changes include:

  • Support for Pages - Database records and record comments are now logged to the stream. Users can comment on records directly from the Stream.
  • Widget can now be filtered by one or more action types
  • Widget can now be filtered by members you are following
  • Widget now includes group colors for member names
  • Widget did not display if there was no activity. Fixed. (Now shows a "there is no recent activity" message)
  • The following action types now allow for exclusion of specific nodes: New Topics, New Blog Entries, New Images, New Events, New Files

@GrooveOnBeat I was unable to reproduce the last issue you posted (the hover issue in the sidebar). Please install the latest version and let me know if the problem persists.

Hey hey hey, new version! :lol:

Ok, I'll install then test it out. :)

This sounds great! 

Is it possible to include this social stream (see image) on any webpage using Pages? Or am I limited to using only a widget? If so, how limited is the widget? Any demo/screenshot/examples?

IMPORTANT NOTICE: the version uploaded to the Marketplace last night had a bug when creating new events. I've just uploaded a patch. Please make sure to download the latest version.

@simonle you can only use the widget. The widget has a couple of filtering options - you can filter by members you follow, and/or by specific action types (e.g. show only New Topics and New Posts)

@Joel R that's been on my list for ages (since the 3.x version in fact), but it's too time-consuming for me to tackle right now.

@GrooveOnBeat I was unable to reproduce the last issue you posted (the hover issue in the sidebar). Please install the latest version and let me know if the problem persists.

I edited the widget "feedItem" such as:

Find:

<a href="{$item->author()->url()}" class="ipsUserPhoto ipsUserPhoto_tiny" data-ipsHover data-ipsHover-target="{$item->author()->url( array( 'do', 'hovercard' ) )}"><img src='{$item->author()->photo}'></a>

Replace it with:

{template="userPhoto" group="global" app="core" params="\IPS\Member::loggedIn(), 'tiny'"}

There's something with the target "$item->author()->url" which pointed to the Profile's activity feed instead of the hovercard. Even the default template did that. Using the "userPhoto" template resolved the issue. :)

@HeadStand - Could we have it so the sidebar widget auto-refreshes to please?

Also - is there any way you can add the ability to add a reply direct in the feed when a topic is replied to as opposed to just when it is created? That would help if you wanted to chip in on the conversation without leaving the stream.

Many Thanks

A couple more suggestions for you @HeadStand

  1. Could the posted times of the last activities auto refresh in the stream to so that they are relevant without having to refresh the page? Otherwise you get a series of items posted 'Just Now' when in fact they could be some time ago.
     
  2. Could you add the ability to drag and drop the Action Types in the ACP into a different sort order so that they display accordingly on the front end rather than just alphabetical order. For instance it would be useful to have Blog Comments come under New Blogs instead of being separated the way they are. I know I can edit the titles and be creative but it would be better to simply allow some sorting ACP side.

@HeadStand - I think these two points are bugs but will be guided by you, if you select one of the filters from the left hand menu, lets say new blog entries, in filters the list to new blog entries only. When the page auto refreshes to check for new content it puts the view back to All Content yet the New Blog entries option is still the one checked down the left hand menu.

Likewise if you are partway through writing a response using the inline comment feature to a particular thread or blog and it auto refreshes whilst you are typing then you loose everything you have typed in the comments section and have to start again. That really needs resolving as that could get quite tedious.

Many Thanks

1. I can't do this without killing anything you're typing in the comment box (which I see you've reported as a bug). The only way for me to do this would be to refresh the entire page, which isn't good.

2. Yes.

I don't plan on adding auto-refresh to the widget.

I'm not 100% clear on what you're asking with the second half of this post. I believe this is already supported, but I'm not certain, as I don't fully understand the question. Please clarify.

Appreciate that its not planned but this would be a really useful addition, a live stream in the sidebar updating every x seconds, is it something you will consider doing please?

Currently when a thread is created, in the social stream it appears with a reply box underneath it for you to be able to type a response. However if a reply to a thread appears in the feed (which is the vast majority of all feed entries) there is no reply box to respond to the previous comment. The only time you get the option to comment is on brand new topics, not posts to topics.

Hopefully that makes sense?

Hi, do you know if feed_items is a database table created by Social Stream?

If so, I have a corrupt database (which doesn't affect anything else in my community, thankfully, but it's still a problem that ought to be resolved on behalf of all clients).  See image below.

Yes, feed_items is from social stream... I'm just not sure why it's giving that error. I mean... that should already be the structure? You can run that query manually..

For the widget - perhaps.

I understand what you're asking for the replies. The only issue I have with it is that this makes it seem like you're replying to a specific post, which implies a threaded topic. There's no such thing here. I'm afraid it would end up being confusing to the user. How would I show the # of comments on such an item? What about "View all comments"? Let's say I skip those, and I just allow a reply box. That allows the user to respond to something out of context. For example, what if the stream shows post #36? I don't see the posts before and I don't see the posts after, so I just reply... and perhaps my reply makes no sense whatsoever in the context of the topic. Thoughts?

Can I bump my previous post as well please and also ask what the plans are now Activity Stream has been refreshed and does the same thing in 4.1 ?

I guess it depends on demand. I still have a lot of ideas for it, but it depends on whether people will continue to use it. For now, I won't be making any major enhancements to it, and that's completely unrelated to 4.1... I just have other mods that are still waiting to be updated and I think it's only fair if those come first.

It would be great if there were some way to highlight unread items in the list.

In The build in topic block you can do some think like:

{{if $topic->unread()}}<i class="fa fa-circle"></i>{{endif}}

It would be really nice it we could do the same with the items in the social stream widget ;)

When a user create a new blog entry the blog name in the social stream widget is not correct. It shows something like this:

Username posted Some-Title in blogs_blog_3417.

when it should show

Username posted Some-Title in Blog_name.

Any solution to this?

@HeadStand, something I would like to see (cuz it doesn't do it on my site), when the sidebar shows X person replied to X topic and I click on it, it takes me to the OP of the thread rather than to either the first unread post or that reply X person made.

Is it possible to add this to Social Stream, I had the 3.x version and it did that, would like to see it in the 4.x version
