CB Activity has finally pushed past just updating its API as explained here. It now comes with a Joomla content plugin to allow activity and comment streams to display anywhere that supports content.prepare. In addition to this the content plugin specifically comes with the functionality to add commenting to articles directly and is unique to the article, which means you can have a comment solution for your articles powered by CB Activity! Check it out below.
It doesn't stop there either. Maybe you want to have Links, Tags, Actions, etc.. for your comments? This feature used to be locked strictly to Activity streams and strictly for certain activity, but this is no more. Your comment streams can now have that same functionality toggled on in addition to any activity entry the user is permitted to edit can have tags, custom messages, etc.. This means for example you can edit your CB Gallery activity and tag someone in the post if you like!
Now lets take a look at what it'll look like as a comment with all that functionality used at once.
This even works for replies too! Next up is the ability to follow an asset. What this does is when viewing your activity stream (either viewing your own profile or the my activity page) or any stream with a following asset supplied it'll display the assets you're following. So lets say we've a follow field on a users profile. What this does by default is lets you follow that users profile and their activity. This is fantastic for sites that don't want to use Connections or want to allow following a users activity without needing to be connected.
The following button is entirely ajax driven too! No page loads. Just 1 click follow and unfollow! That's it for now, but next up is the Likes functionality. You can monitor CB Activity progress below on our forge.
