I'm replacing my Dolphin site with Una and a bit confused with the Albums and Photos separation on Una. If I have the Albums app active, I really don't see why I would activate the Photos app as well. I'm trying to keep it simple for my users and if they can post photos in albums, I'm not sure why to complicate it by allowing posting of photos alone as well. On other hand, I might be missing something here. Is it beneficial on a social network-type site to use both? For those that have both active, how do you imagine that site members will use these two separately?

On my Dolphin site I have created an RSS block on the profile page and use an RSS URL with a parameter/variable (sorry not sure of correct term). This works perfectly and replaces the variable with the profile's username. I am wanting to move my site to UNA so I tried to set this same thing up with UNA but have run into a problem with using this dynamic RSS URL. 

On the UNA profile page, if I put the URL into a HTML or Raw box , adding the URL - (Domain(dot)com)/user/{display_name}/submitted/.rss will replace {display_name} with the profile owner's name to create a valid RSS URL - for example if I am viewing the profile page of a user named John, the url becomes, (Domain(dot)com)/user/John/submitted/.rss. This shows me that {display_name} works but I need the actual RSS feed to display, not just a link to it so I need this to work in the RSS box. Unfortunately,  if I put the same URL in an RSS box, {display_name} does not get replaced with the UNA username. So, while the UNA HTML and raw boxes parse the dynamic URL fine, something is stopping it from happening in the RSS box. Any thoughts on what might be the problem are appreciated.

Thank you.

Hello All,

I'm working on moving from Dolphin to UNA. On the member profile pages of my Dolphin site I have set a block that displays an RSS feed of the member's (the person whose profile is being viewed) latest posts on another website. On my Dolphin site profile page, for the RSS URL I use: …./user/{NickName}/submitted/.rss as "NickName" is the parameter for the user's user name on the Dolphin profile page  and as long as my Dolphin member has the same user name on the other site that they use on my site, their latest posts from the other site automatically show on their profile page on my Dolphin site. The RSS address automatically replaces the {NickName} in the RSS URL with the username of the profile. This functionality is important for my site so I need to work it out before switching to UNA but I can't seem to find what has replaced  "NickName" on UNA. The user's full name/user name is displayed on the UNA profile page but I don't find which profile related page contains the code that will tell me which parameter to use. I tried "display_name" with no luck so while that seems to be used elsewhere it doesn't seem to be what is used on the profile page.  

Any ideas would be very much appreciated. Even if you don't know the parameter used, if someone can tell me the file(s) that create the profile page on UNA, hopefully, I can figure it out.

Thanks!
