    What is the point of activity stream?

    The lack of response is not really filling me with confidence here.

    In answer to your question I mean what you described in your 02/01/2016 post.

    What is the point of activity stream?

    If if turns out that the Activity Stream navigation system can not, after all, be improved, will IPS consider re-introducing pagination, or similar, on Activity Stream? Currently we still have the situation where, contrary to some assertions, Activity Stream still does not do everything that View New Content did (ie the ability to switch back and forth effectively between Activity and Posts on active forums). This is important as it makes for a poor user experience and is my main gripe with IPS 4.x.

    What is the point of activity stream?

    @Lindy, is there any update on when this will be done? If it has already been implemented, then its not working for me and I'll file a bug report.

    Very nice site, but I'm confused! You appear to have Activity Stream with pagination? How did you manage to do that? *** edit *** Ah, this is IPS 4.0 not 4.1 methinks.

    PageSpeed Insights -Going to Improve?

    Alexa is meaningless - its based on the surfing habits of users who have the Alexa toolbar on their browser, a tiny sub-set of users. It is nothing to do with the technical side of IPS.

    Are forum communities dead?

    I've had quite enough 'excitement' with Activity Stream thank you very much.
  10. Activity Stream (within the page source) contains entire posts, but AS only shows users a truncated section of that post. Therefore spiders are seeing different content to users. Does this present a risk that IPS sites might suffer a penalty for cloaking from Google, as users are being shown different content to spiders? Google cloaking definition here: https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/66355 (PS I'm sure I asked this before but can't find post).

    My users hate the activity stream

    Yes, but in 3.4 the default (eg new posts in last 24 hrs) can be changed by the user by a single clear button (eg new posts in past week). It really is more complicated and confusing in 4.1. And when I try to configure a default AS I'm never really sure what result I'll end up with

    My users hate the activity stream

    I think all this confusion with AS (by forum users and Admins) clearly demonstrates that the current system is simply not intuitive enough. I doubt whether the majority of users are going to go through the effort of configuring their own AS, they'll just get frustrated.

    IPS should improve the suite documentation

    I'll all for more documentation but to be fair to IPS, Kentico is much, much more expensive than IPS suite.

    What is the point of activity stream?

    It is browser navigation which I want, as you define above (in bold), particularly for Activity which follows use of load new activity (ie page 2 onwards in old speak). But there must be some easy to see visual clue as to where you left the AS when you return to the AS (eg highlighting). The little blue blob is lost in the extended AS unlike the old VNC. Personally I'm not bothered whether this is achieved by pagination or by some form of voodoo magic.

    IP.Board 3.4 End of Support

    I fear that this is already happening. There are quite a few 'regulars' who appear to have gone or now post very infrequently. I'm aware of a few who have moved to XF or WBB.
