''Activity Stream'' Ghost in the machine....errrrr
by pyes

Please read fully before giving advice.

I have an activity stream on my forum homepage. This activity stream shows the ''staff lounge'' posts which all the members can see (this is not good).

I would like to completely remove the activity stream, however, i cannot find it anywhere.

I researched it online and I seem to be missing some key features in my admin CP.

Under ''settings'', I do NOT have the ''navigation'' option. I also heard you can access it under ''settings>option>activity stream'', However, I dont have ''activity stream'' in my options menu?????

What i think happend was, i DL'd a mod that over written those options or something. I tried disabling most of the add-ons and the activity stream is still there. So, i have a ghost in my machine and cannot get it out.

Is there another way to find the activity stream options? or possibly a PHP file i can delete to get rid of this activity stream?

thank you in advance for your time and help. :)

i have vb 4.1.11 sorry tried to post that earlier but keep getting error screens and super slow loading times.....sorta feels like vb.org threw me on the ''miserable users'' list.....lol

ill have to pop in a proxy later and see if i still get the same slowness and error messages.

okay guys....this thread can be locked....i found which add-on was causing the trouble. It was hidden inside VBfoster-missing features (lite). When i disabled the add-on, it did not disable the activity stream....i dont know why. However, when i completely removed the add-on, it did get rid of the forum activity stream. That was weird !!!

It is strange that you do not have those settings. Did the upgrade go through ok? Can you post a screenshot of your Acp?

About the issue that you are experiencing it looks like the permissions are not included in the Activity Stream. Hence those private forum 's threads&posts are shown up for everyone. You "d better start a ticket about this at your customer center.

Now, that activity stream on your forum homepage, is it added by a mod or did you upgrade? If the latter can you tell us how you upgraded your forum?

P.s. Can you post the link to your forum as well?

im not entirely sure. my forum is 4.1.11 patched to level 1.

i believe it was an add-on...but not certain.

forum is ironjuggernauts.com but you need to register to see anything.

i got rid of the forum activity stream which was there from ''vbfoster missing features'' add-on. I also have forum statistics which does the same thing...but i was able to go to that mod/add-on and edit the forum sections that updated the ''latest posts'' so that staff room posts would not show there.

i pretty much got it under control now.....however, if i will be needing that ''navigation'' option....then how can i get it?

btw thanks for your time and help.

Assuming that you mean the navigation manager, you must upgrade to 4.2.0. It is a built in function in that version. The Activity Streamer as well btw.

And you are welcome.

Addon's will most likely still be there but Record your addon URL's in notebook. :) to be reference and added to the 4.2.0 Navigation Manager. :)

I upgraded to 4.2 - went very well - but I do not see the option in the nav bar or anywhere else to display "who visited today".

fyi...I cannot create a new thread in this forum today for some reason but can add a post to one.

That can be found at Settings-Options and not at the Navigation bar.

Most add ons will probably work with the 4.2.0 as well but it depends on the mod. What mods do you have installed? Ask at their threads if they will be compatible with 4.2.0.
