Hey Guys - It's a strange week here in the US with our Independence Day holiday smack in the middle of the week. I tried to take some time off but got caught up in a few forum topics in which I couldn't stop watching and participating.
We recently created a new forum on the site called Around the Industry. This area automatically pulls in articles from other publications, given these publications enable the feature. Sometimes we are able to pull in an image and the first paragraph while other times we can only pull in the title and link. I really like this new area because it enables people to comment on other articles free from heavy moderation and it enables people to comment on articles published on site's that don't even allow comments.
That said, some people don't like the new forum area and don't want to see posts from this area in their activity streams / unread content. No worries, I completely understand. I created a custom activity stream for just this reason, it's called Unread Content No RSS Feeds.
To help people better use CA, I created a few videos showing how to create one's own custom activity stream, how to use the bookmarks feature, and how to ignore specific users.
Let me know if you have questions or what any other videos in the future.
