4.1 Status Updates Page - no way to post status updates anymore?

Hey guys,

Currently my site uses the Status Updates page on 4.0 as the homepage.  My users can post brand new status updates right from the status updates page.

In IP 4.1, I noticed that there is no way to post NEW status updates to the status updates page here: https://community.invisionpower.com/discover/4/

It appears you can only reply to status updates.  I really hope this is not the case because this is an extremely important feature for my community: to be able to post brand new status updates straight to the status updates page.

Maybe I am just missing something but did you guys remove this feature in 4.1?  Please say it ain't so because without it, my community will be verrrrry unhappy people!

That's an Activity Stream, which has never allowed you to directly post into the stream.  

With that said, you can use the +Create button at the very top of every page.

 

3.4 had a Status Updates "stream"... and there's a default stream here called Status Updates, hence the confusion. You can see how one would expect it.

Not sure how 4.0 works as not on it. But 3.4 has it:

Also "Create" is not on mobile.

You can't do it per-stream - from the backend, widgets work per-page, so it'd be on all stream pages. You could probably add some logic in the widget template to hide it if it wasn't on the actual Statuses stream though.

Editing the template would affect all instances of the status widget, but again, with some logic in the template you could split it out and do something different specifically for that one.

@Rikki i have a question will 4.1 stable need much time as 4 or less ?

Much less, the changes in 4.1 are localized to particular areas of the software. 4.0 was an entirely new product.

Thank you good to know.I like the 4.1 much and looking to move to it the notification sound is just great i must say ips is very professional and modern.

It'd be relatively easy to mimic it if you wanted to. You could add the 'recent status updates' widget to the header of the streams page, and edit the template of that widget so it doesn't show the status updates. That would just leave you with the form for posting a new status. 

Okay, thanks for the suggestion @Rikki  Is this widget new in 4.1?  Because I don't remember there being a way to do this in 4.0...
