Activity Stream plugin?
Yes, kind of like the listings of latest post for each topic in the /recents view except as a stream of events. I've found it useful in the past as a means of discovering interesting conversations/topics.
hmm, I guess it comes when you search 'nothing' in posts and sorted by post time in descending order, you see the list...
it did not make much sense here, but I guess if you have a forum with very diverse topics? in such a case, I see that you might be discovering interesting posts...
previously, @baris made this plugin to show "the most useful posts" in the forum:
Although it is not what you asked for, it has been useful for our forum. maybe you can find it useful...
additionally, I forgot to add the feed plugin... This shows the posts from users you follow...
In case you might find it useful for your purpose...
I think we'll probably have to create a plugin. The idea is to show a real-time scrolling list of conversations so users can get a feel for active and interesting topics that they might want to participate in. I like to think of it is arriving at a party and being able to listen in on the various conversations in the room to see what topics grab your interest...
The solutions suggested above would work, but the 'real-time scrolling view' is a key requirement and hopefully is achievable through the socket.io interface. I imagine filtering for the permissioned topics might be a challenge though.
you search 'nothing' in posts and sorted by post time in descending order, you see the list..
That's quite a clever solution
lol, actually I was thinking out loud just to see what it will show... sometimes, this helps to get inspiration. But in this case, I do not think our forum can get benefit from such a plugin, I believe @razibal has a very active and diverse forum, in such a case, this page might be beneficial. We have these alternatives with a similar purpose:
