Tracking Forum Activity

Tracking Forum Activity


One of the cool things you can check out on
your community once you are up and running is your activity page. You can access this
from your menu bar at the top or the side menu, depending on the theme you are using.
In this example we are using the Boostrap theme. Some themes may hide it, but you can
always access it from “/activity” in your browser. So as you can see here, on the recent
activity page, we get to see some of the items such as people that joined or people that
are getting badges. You can also see points that have been achieved by users in the community.
If you are logged in as the administrator you can see something called “moderator activity”
which allows you to see what your moderators have been up to. So for example we can see
that an account is added or someone has been banned. So simply you can see what’s going
on with the moderators and your community as well what actions they been taking. Finally
there is the “Administrator Activity” which you can see what administrators at up to and
they can also add messages in here as well. For example information can be shared and
only being seen by the administrators. Just an important note that only the administrator
and moderator have access to the screens to see both administrator and moderator activity
depending on their permission level. As well, in recent activity, users may make status
updates straight from this box here. Moderators can do the same as well, but once again only
the moderators see moderator recent activity and administrators can see their activity
and moderator activity and users can only see recent activity only. If you so choose
you can also make activity hidden by using CSS. Hopefully this video was helpful in learning
