I have a few discussions that are configured in a manner where the most recent comment would be nicer if it was at the top. I have a "Site Updates and Changes" thread that you have to scroll all the way to bottom of to see the most recent update.
Is there any way to change the order of the comments?
If there is another way i should be using this module, please share.
A Group would show most recent posts first, but then you face the same issue of comments within the posts... A designated Group would also allow members to join/follow as necessary.
For example, you could create a group where you (or admin of the group) would be the only one allowed to create posts. Then your most recent post (used in place of comment) would always show at the top.
Discussions, (in your case) could be a specific news article or forum for proposed legislation... Which a Group can also contain their own Discussions as well.
I would agree with James Cherry - the Discussions are much like a forum, with browsing by “updated first” and replies in “oldest first” sequence, as replies can follow each other in context.
For something like site updates you could use Posts module and create new Post for each update. You can group them into a category, Group or Channel. Use category if it’s just for schema, use Group if you want to control privacy and use Channel (with pre-created label) if you want to post to a context that may have multiple content types across the site.
I am looking for some assistance with the default "entity_info" and "entity_info_full" information in the account profiles. It seems the email address, IP address and status are hardcoded information to be presented publicly. Is there a way to hide these values from the profiles other than making the entire account private?
I believe only the 'Admin' roles can see that information. If you make a test account and set it to be at a normal user level, you should be able to see from a members point of view, and that information is not shown.
If a member level is able to see that information, go through your Permissions settings within Studio, Admin roles may have accidentally been assigned to another level.
bbunnelle I'm sure you will. I have been at this for almost a month and have zero background in this stuff and I'm fumbling my way through just fine! You'll get the hang of it. I try to help with the 'easy' things that way the other folks are freed up to help me with my problems! 😉
