Activity Feed Configuration

    Hello All -

    I am not sure if I am posting this topic in the correct place so please feel free to move it if not. 

    I run a small adult fetish social networking site and one of the most common requests is to not be bombarded with particular content on their activity feed. While I have looked over the advanced activity feed, I do not feel that it completely solves my need.

    Is there a plugin that will allow users to turn off their activity feed completely, not allow images to be displayed? What about a configuration that would allow members to be grouped into specific categories that could then be used to filter what content they would or would not see? I understand some of these features may be able to be achieved through the advanced activities feed, but feel like it would be more up to a user to understand how to use the features rather than something that can be configured upon signup. 

    Thanks for your help.

    Below are two Advanced Activity Feed products.  They may be certified but I couldn't find them in the Marketplace when searching for 'activity feed'.

     

    My suggestion would be to convert the requirements you mentioned (plus any more you can think of) into a numbered list, then contact both 3PDs with your list.  Let them know you will be demoing their Products to verify their response to each item.  

     

    Something else I would suggest (as part of your list/needs building process) is to create mockups with very specific examples of what you require (i.e. what would be displayed based on criteria as well as what would not, just for clarification purposes).  This way it's much less likely for miscommunication to occur.  Make it clear enough that a monkey (like me) or a 10yo will understand it.  This isn't meant to disrespect anyone's intelligence, but to help make things as crystal clear as possible up front, and reduce any language issues.

    Networks allow for that. I use them for author niches on my site in order to allow those that want to subscribe to Erotica to see that and those that don't wouldn't see that as long as the Erotica subscribers post to the Erotica network lol.

    @gs - Still trying to figure out the differences between the two products listed above, to my understanding, I think they are essentially the exact same product just through different vendors, they even have the same cost. Does anyone else have a different experience or preference with this? I already emailed social engine addons about a week ago but have not heard back. I may just wind up going with one and see what it does, that has been my experience so far.. lol.

    @Donna - Do you know if there is a way to default the activity post a a specific network from the basic SE settings?

    @Kathryn

    That's odd.  SEAO sales typically gets back quickly.  From the information (and possibly demos) it may seem they are the same (or at least very similar) but which you choose may depend on your choice of other SES or SEAO Plugins (i.e. because it's easier to use the same 3PD wherever possible to feed (no pun intended) info into your feed, this way there's less chance for fingerpointing).

    @Kathryn: We are soon submitting the plugin for Certification, so if you want to have a certified plugin on your site, then you can please wait for a few days.

    Since we will be providing Activity Feeds, Background Images, Hashtags in feeds, Nested Comments, GIFs and much more in 1 single plugin only at the $69.

    If you have any doubts, then please let us know.

    Thanks & Regards

    Until it's certified, they can't post it here. We don't recommend buying non certified plugins as they aren't tested and can modify core files and database which will cause issues on upgrades.

    @Kathryn

    For an idea of what the (non-certified) plugin offers, pls see the link I posted above in the first response to your initial post.

    @Kathryn, we have completed the plugin development and testing and will be uploading the plugin for certification next week. So, we request you to just wait for few more days and we will send you the link once the product is certified.

    Since this is big plugin with many features, we're taking some time. Apologies for inconvenience due to delays.

    Have you contacted SEAO Support directly?  They will probably respond more quickly from there than here.  That way you can include more information including screenshots that will have to do with your specific issue and not this particular Forum Topic.

    Yes, please keep threads on topic. If you have a different issue than the thread's title (which you do), please start a new thread rather than posting things in a thread that aren't for that same topic. However, we recommend always contacting an expert first. :) Thanks @gs for keeping things on track.
