This has now been implemented in 1.6.1.
Just as a note for people reading this thread and not wanting to read the issue 😄
This plugin adds a new route to your NodeBB at
This route shows a feed of posts from users that you follow. The page has 4 widget areas to further customize it. You can also filter by a user or category.
I installed the plugin on this forum to showcase it https://community.nodebb.org/feed
@baris thanks a lot.
@baris Drops an error if you are not logged in.
@dogs thanks for reporting, it will redirect to login now.
I get an error on activation of this plugin - see below

Ahh looks like the latest version of this plugin requires nodebb 1.17.0. Use 1.0.1 if you are on nodebb 1.16.2.
@baris Thanks very much.
@baris I've noticed that there doesn't seem to be way to add anything in terms of widget to the content section (it's not shown). On other "pages", I can add a header, content, etc. Is this expected ?
You should be able to add widgets on the extend/widgets page
@baris Correct, but there isn't one for "content". I expect that's normal, but wanted to check ?
Yeah, that's normal.
