Activity Feed

edited June 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
So I noticed Vanilla had an activity feed and I was wondering if there was a way to "add" to that activity feed when someone does something on the main front area of my site such as play a game. I am working on integrating Vanilla with my arcade and hope to have a sort of social arcade thing going here soon.

    I'm a bit reluctant to give you tips as we are giving a severe rethink to the activity feed in a future version.

    However, here's what you want to do:
    Register the activity type:
    array('AllowComments' => '1',
    'FullHeadline' => '%1$s created an account for %3$s.',
    'ProfileHeadline' => '%1$s created an account for %3$s.'),
    array('Name' => 'JoinCreated'), TRUE);
    When you want to add an activity call the AddActivity() function. The ins and outs of formatting your activity name can be found in Gdn_Format::Activity().

    Okay thanks! I will try it out and see what I can get working.

    @Todd I hope the next activity reaches to the level of FB Wall / Newsfeed, making it possible to post links into it which will display abstracts.

    @shah2010, our goal is to do that type of thing for discussions too which are at the end of the day the most important part of a forum.
