Site Activity Wall

Post by Guest on July 22nd 2015, 11:17 am

An activity wall module. Users can post links, images and videos. Features comments, likes and automatic site activity feeds.


Basically a quick message feed instead of the chatbox that has a similar system to a facebook feed instead of having to make a forum topic or use the chatbox where the post can disappear quickly.


Other forum host sites have something similar as a module that can appear underneath the forum block itself.

Alright, so basically, you have your forum module, we all know what that is, useful for long conversations and topics. As well the chatbox, which works like an IM, assuming you're online at the time you see the messages, for very quick stuff. 

The middle ground module I have seen around is an activity wall, timeline-esque board that looks something like below. We were able to change the name of the module, so we called it Shoutbox. Pardon the white, I don't know the limits so went full conservative Wink.

You can post news and stuff quickly, without the need to make a forum thread and get replies to it that don't disappear in an IM. The ones I have seen also show who has joined the forum and some forum milestones like most registered users in a day etc. It's pretty flexible. I am pretty sure there are scripts floating around, but I can't find any to make my own module. ^^

In other words a module that will turn a forum into something like Facebook or similar social media platforms?

It would not effect the forum module. It is its own module that fits somewhere between a forum and IM, but what you just said is actually also interesting; Once you go from the category view, click which forum section you want to go in, the topic list could be set up like that theoretically, albeit missing some things in my suggestion.

The only differences in what I suggested are that it will auto-post if someone registers to the forum, post if the forum reaches a milestone, but also allows users and guests to post themselves as shown in another example. I guess the main idea is it would kind of give guests an insight to the forum before registering.
