View Full Version : Live feed on a social network.

Aug 17th, 2010, 02:04 PM
Hey guys, (first post)

I am running a social network and the only option at the moment for the users is to view all the current activity on the network. But, you know people don't want that. They only want to see what their friends are doing. Like, they don't care what someone one hundred miles up the road is doing. Luckily, there is a section called notifications which only informs the users about their friends but this feature is not so well known. So what I would like to be able to do is have the data stored inside notifications displayed on the home page when they log in in place of the entire network activity.

This is the coding I found inside the notification section but I have tried to create a html/css box on the main page and it does not work. Can anyone help with this?

<div id="main-content" class="twelve clearfix">
<div id="flash-notice"></div>

<!-- Main Content Content -->
<ul id="sub-navigation" class="twelve clearfix"><li id="subnav-" class="nav-selected"><a href="/my_profile/umc/notifications">New Notifications</a></li>
<li id="subnav-" class=""><a href="/my_profile/umc/notifications/all">All Notifications</a></li></ul><div id="inbox-message-list">

<div class="content-box">
<div id="umc-notices"><h4>No recent activity...</h4></div>

</div> <!-- End Main Content -->

<div class="clearfix"></div>

I'm not sure what they use (that works), and what you are trying (that doesn't).

Can you clarify your post, and it will be easier to help.

Basically I just want to put an activity feed on the homepage for each user. That it will read from their friends and tell them the latest updates. Similar to the home pages on Bebo/Facebook.
