  • Search Module Configuration: Recently Updated Topics - Only Show Most Recent Post Per Topic

    First of all, thank you to anyone who reads through this and tries to help.

    If you have a look at my site: http://forum.highonhockey.com/ you can see that I have two search modules on the right hand side. One shows latest posts, the other shows latest topics.

    What I would prefer is to have only one module, but have the module display the most recently updated topics, new or old - and with the avatar and name of the most recent poster - but only ever displaying the most recent post from each topic. This is almost achieved using the first module - latest posts - but the problem is that if the 5 most recent posts on my forum are all from the same thread, the module displays all of them. I would like to only have the most recent post in each topic displayed.

    I'm not sure if I'm explaining this properly, though I imagine it must be a fairly common request..

    Thanks again for any help you can provide!

    I believe this is a known limitation with the current code, in that any type of search that displays s an activity stream will show each reply to a single thread as a separate entity.

    In topic view, it won't do that.

    Opinion is divided on this actually, as some people believe that an activity view should show every post regardless of thread - otherwise it's not a true representation of activity! So there's two sides to this coin. Ideally it would be an admin-controlled switch but that doesn't exist.
