    If you just need a facility to upload pages and images through a web browser, you can use the file manager in your web services control panel. I've used both MovableType and WordPress for blogging and both were nice. I'm not familiar with any formal CMS systems, though. Good luck!

    I don't want to give lots of people access to the web services control panel. I have static pages, that sometimes need updates. I'd like people who aren't me to do them. Not really blogs so much, but I'll look at those two anyway, just in case they would work. I just want to make it possible for users I pick to update pages that aren't in the forum, but are plain boring html pages. Thanks for the suggestions, hopefully I'm not the only one doing this sort of thing in an EVE environment.

    sorry, but i looked at livecloud channels. it has a huge banner at top and bottom that basically is an ad for livecloud. my site users are accustomed to an ad free experience. additionally, you can't rename the menu items (instead of summary, i'd put in a home page) and you can only add one additional menu item. my site is hundreds of content pages, plus an EVE community. We love EVE. The forums on livecloud don't look as nice. I did the demo, it wasn't for me. I'd rather have joomla or...

    Content islands, literally little islands of content, can be stationed on any other page of your website as a great way to draw visitors into your community. You simply create the island in your community control panel, then cut and paste the code snippet for the island on any outside web page. In your control panel, go to Forums>>Content Management>>Content Islands tab. Click on “New Content Island.” Choose the appropriate criteria for your content island. Click on “Create...

    We have hundreds of groups in our website and I want to create a custom widget that I can share/embed with all of them. How do I do that?
  • Topic Reply
    Hi @Valerie Krist , Almost the exact same way that Rosemary described above. For step 3 select Groups -> Group Directory. The widget defaults to 15 groups but will show up to maximum of 50, and it will display a link to see the rest.

    I think Hoop.la is a brilliant solution to social networking and we're happy to have had the chance to test it out. Our review is here: Hoop.la Review

    Great idea, Ted! We occasionally have spammers register and then try to promote products that have nothing to do with our site. The posts get reported by other members and we zap 'em, but by using this recipe the posts would never be seen by anyone in the first place. Nice.

    Is there a recipe for what we deal with? I have posting from email on. Our forum email gets heaps of spam. Hoop.la treats each spam email like a new member trying to register. The post is in the moderation queue so at least nobody sees the spam. But I wish that we could allow "posting via email" but auto decline any registration that appears to come from a first email. Any recipe for that? That would save me daily time in manually declining obvious spammers. Thanks.

    Hi Deb- Your scenario is not supported in that we would need to have a condition that checks to see if the content is submitted by email. I think that is a great idea, though, so we will consider adding that for a future release. Once we support that, you can just create a 'moderate content' recipe and set a condition for content posted by email. You may want to post this as an idea in our support site , if you want to be notified when that is added a feature.

    Hi Emma, The searches you do in the top level Manage Content area only include top level content. You'd need to do the search inside the Group to see the Group totals. Note though, that if you have Advanced Reporting, you can get stats like total number of posts over a specified period of time both with and without group information included.

    Sometimes you want to bring widget content onto the Home page of your community, in the left column. This tip is the step-by-step on how to accomplish that! If you've done this in your community, please share your own hints for making it work here too. In this example, we're displaying forum topics, but you can do this same method with other widget content. Go to control panel, under “manage widgets.” Click the Embedded Widgets tab. Click “add embedded widget.” Select “UBB Forum” in the...

    In our next major update (likely to be released sometime next week), we'll be removing support for the "activity stream" as both a destination page and widget. We're making this change because the Activity Stream is one of the most underused features in the platform, yet it happens to be one of the most complicated ones to maintain, since nearly every action ties into it in some way. In our research of active Crowdstacks, many had disabled the feature entirely. We are still supporting the...

    Hi there, It's my understanding that if I go to "Manage/Search Content" and select "Everything" under Content Type, the number of items that come up will only represent the items that have been posted on our main site, excluding anything in subgroups . Is there any way to identify the total # of items posted within a given time on our entire site, including within subgroups ? Thanks! Emma
  • Support Ticket Reply
    Hi, Emma: If you had Advanced Reporting, you could simply run a report since the start of your site, and you can choose to include subgroup activity in that report. Absent that, you'd have to run the report you referenced for the main site and then each subgroup. I was speaking the Mary Grossutti about a plan upgrade that would have included Advanced Reporting, but the last time we spoke was mid-June. If your team is interested again, we can re-quote you.

    Lighting a candle for the dearly departed Activity Stream There are certain things about you that will be missed: 1. You announced New Premium Members and Newly Registered Members. You were a not-so-subtle encouragement to get others to "join in" too. You gave instant recognition to newbies. You gave community leaders a convenient place to see and follow up on newbies listed there. ( Where do they go now? ) You were a visible way to generate a sense of "community" -- which is something that...

    Thx Rich. I wouldn’t call it “terrible.” Not that apocalyptic 😎 Sometimes my changes at our site have what we call “unintended consequences.” A simple color change negatively affects a feature somewhere else I didn’t expect, and so on. You know. Let’s see how they solve the unintended consequence of this particular change. They always do.

    I assist a large and varied recreational vehicle information forum in connecting its 23,000+ members to those who are outstanding in the field of posting valued CONTENT topic threads (formerly listed separately from COMMENTS). This moderately popular activity and the valuable ability of any member to access via these former CONTENT links in our gurus of knowledge Profile links is seriously degraded by the lumping of CONTENT and COMMENTS into what has been and remains the basic Display All...

    Plance has hit the nail on the head, when he says, "...Now...valuable Topic threads are buried amongst perhaps thousands of Topic Replies...This degradation of categorization is a profound disservice to the functionality and lifeblood of our forum..." This is exactly the problem. What you've done here is the equivalent of having a nicely organized filing system and taking all the files and dumping them into a single file folder. I'm sure you don't have your in-house computers set up that...

    @Rich Melvin , can you be more specific about what you're missing from the Activity Stream? Is it just the old Activity tab on the member's profile? Is there something else? It's unclear to me what your primary complaint is, so I'm just trying to understand your perspective. I'll also mention that we're working on adding a Posts tab to the member profile this week, as I announced here . @Plance , you may be happy to hear about this, as well.

    "...can you be more specific about what you're missing from the Activity Stream?..." Read Neil's post in this thread . He did a much better job of explaining this than I could ever do. ALL THAT is what's missing!

    @Brian Lenz , I, and our forum, will be happy if the new Posts tab will be as functional and we can copy/paste it into future posts as live links to members' valued content as we could before. Thank you for your response!

    @Rich Melvin While I appreciate your appreciation, Rich, my reading of various posts from Julie, Plance, and you at OGR suggest that y'all are using the A.S. differently than we do (used to). Seems like you folks want some of the A.S.' functionality on User Profile Pages, whereas we liked it as a look-see widget on our homepage and embedded on a custom page. My eulogy doesn't mention your User Profile functions. That said, yes, I would love to see the "activity" publicly visible...
