Just an update. Sorry for the silence! CB Activity 5.0.0 was interrupted to implement SCA compliance in CBSubs PayPal Pro and CBSubs Stripe, but we're back on track now.

With this update is another new great feature. Stream filters! In short you'll be able to specify custom Asset and User filters for your streams. Your users can then click them and it will ajax reload the stream displaying only the contents of your filter. Check it out below!

Edit:


Display:


There is no limit to the number of filters you can have and they are per activity stream giving you great control over what your streams display. Note this isn't 100% finalized and will be subject to some changes. Most likely the edit display will be cleaned up a little more.

Just another update. Everything is still progressing well and you can still follow progression on our forge below.

forge.joomlapolis.com/projects/cb-activity/issues?query_id=147

The new Themes feature has been completely implemented. Themes allow users to give more emphasis to their posts. They're completely customizable with a background image, CSS classes, or both. Several default themes are included.





The Likes and Follows modal has been redesigned to be a little more stylized and include the canvas boxes for users.





Notifications containers will now link to their content (just click anywhere in the container that isn't already a link), have sharper edges, and now have a hover color.





A few new things that aren't seen, but certainly a huge help is MORE performance improvements. All user input database tables have been performance tested and optimized with 1 million rows. That's a lot of data!

Additionally there's a few more features to go. Specifically autocomplete for Actions (e.g. Celebrating > Birthday/Anniversary/Promotion/etc..) to help reduce how much users need to type when selecting one of the available actions and Reactions. Reactions are just animated GIFs. This feature will be powered by Giphy so it will require you to have a developer key (instructions will be provided). Then finally the last major feature will be a complete rewrite of the template files. They will no longer be PHP class and functions, but mostly HTML making them easier to override. More importantly the template rewrite will allow for a per-stream template instead of same template applied only to every stream giving MUCH greater customization.

I'm back again with another awesome update! Reactions are officially completed. They're fully supported in Activity and Comment posts and powered by Giphy. They're heavily cached client and server side for great performance and to help avoid hitting giphy API rate limits. The default gif selection is from their Trending feed with option to search for something more specific. It also comes with infinite scrolling to load in more gifs (just keep scrolling the dropdown!). Check it out below.

Selection:


Note Giphy attribution is not shown in the above, but is being added. It will show at the bottom of the dropdown selection and always visible while the dropdown is open. This is a requirement to use Giphy in a production environment.

Display:


You can insert as many as you want. Don't worry CB Activity comes prepared from page spam by rolling up a post if it's too long. The insert code for reactions is (giphy:GIPHY_ID) to allow for inline insertion manually if so desired (the dropdown selection will handle inserting at cursor for you).

Up next is some more great improvements. I'm planning to add an auto complete to Actions. This way you can select Action > Celebrating > Birthday instead of having to type it all out. This will be powered by our repeat usage (+/-) allowing you to add as many auto complete suggestions as you like. Following that will be improvements to the Emote feature to allow for multiple replacements. Currently for example if you want the smile emote to replace :smile: :happy: :glad: you can't without having the same emote 3 times. This will be improved to allow providing sub-replacements so 1 emote can replace several different inserts (even text smiley faces if you want). Last but not least will be the template file rewrite to allow for per-stream templates.

The new Action autocomplete feature is now implemented. You can now specify suggestions for users on a per-action basis to autocomplete the action message and emote icon. Check it out below!





This is entirely handled by an easy to use Repeat usage shown at the bottom of the Action edit page. Substitutions and language strings are both supported in the suggestions.





Feeling, Celebrating, Eating, and Drinking all come preloaded with some great suggestions.
