#2721 new enhancement

All activity streams view link should have similar end points

Severity: normal Version: 1.5
Component: Activity Keywords:


This is something that has been discussed before and I think needs to be fixed for usability reasons.

I think all content on the activity stream that you can reply to should end up on the permalink page. Some content ends up at the content source. Forum posts go to forums. Blog posts go to blog posts but this is confusing for users. There is already a link to the content in the activity-header. The view link next to delete should end up at the permalink page with the full conversation.

Had a thought about the way twitter does it. The link the timestamp to the permalink

I agree there should be more consistency. I kinda like the idea that View will always go to the associated item (forum post, blog comment, etc), and in cases where there is no associated item (joined group, activity update), 'View' does not appear. The timestamp will always go to the activity permalink.

Other opinions?

I think it should go to the associated content too.

This will in turn help plugin developers who have their own customised activity streams point to their relevant components - and not cause a 'culture shock' to users who might be already used to a permalink page instead. Besides, all activity streams already look like each other.

To the uninitiated, there is no clear distinction between the components.

Phew! Sorry, didn't intent for it to be such a mouthful. :)

I'm building a theme that does exactly this; I removed nested comments from the activity stream and left them on the activity permalink page. Not too hard to do with a little template modding.

  • Milestone changed from 1.3 to Future Release

  • Keywords permalink view link removed
  • Severity set to normal

Now that we're syncing activity content back to the source (in the case of blog comments, anyway), maybe it's time to revisit this.

Moving back into Awaiting Review because we need to test it and see what the current behaviour is. It feels like we can make a decision and close/progress this ticket pretty quickly.
