IP.Content Recent Forum Activity
Per request, someone asked for my SpaceBound Recent Forum Activity block and I'm posting it up here for free. This is free, thus very limited support and released under the DBAD license - I simply exported it from my site with minor changes and am uploading it here.
This is a full width feed block that will pull in the Recent Topics of your site by default, you can control this via the block's feed filter such as pulling latest posts instead of topics and more. You can also control what categories and all that good stuff (all in the Blocks filters, just play around with it to your heart's content)
The block displays the following information by default:
- Topic Title
- Topic Starter
- Date created
- Number of Replies
- Number of views
- Latest poster's avatar
- Latest posters name
- Last post's date
- Badge display (eg. Hot, Pinned, Poll etc)
You'll most likely need to modify the colors to better match your site, but it's very very easy to do. Just inspect the text you want to change the color for on the block using your inbuilt inspector or an addon such as firebug, navigate to the block and locate/change the code that you inspected.
1. Download and Extract to your desktop
2. Navigate to your ACP > IP.Content > Blocks
3. At the very bottom is an import button, click this:
4. Locate the block_recent_forum_activity.xml from the extracted folder
5. Click Import
6. Navigate to a page you'd like to display the block via AC > IP.Content > Page Manager > _____ page you'd like to edit/add/create
7. In the right hand side you will see "Recent Forum Activity" simply click the "+sign" where you'd like to display the block on said page.
Feel free to ask questions in the support topic, I'll reply and help out when I can - But again, this is a quick free file that I do not plan to support. Help each other out
