Activity box on static front page – not on sidebar
objective: to have a short, abbreviated version of the Activity feed in a DIV box in the content area, on a static front page.
things I’ve tried:
using the activity RSS feed.
this kind of works, but the problem with this is it doesn’t import the user photos and the styling was a bit problematic. simply lines of text.
using the sidebar widget in the main content area.
the “Site Wide Activities” sidebar widget option is exactly what I want. I can specify the number of items, it has the same formatting, with clickable options
unfortunately, I have not been able to crack how to get a sidebar widget into a page content. the afternoon’s googling has turned up a bit about how it’s not possible. anything is possible. I just don’t know how to do it yet.
I have the php-exe plugin that allows me to add php to page content, so that helps (a lot)
but sadly, copying/pasting the plugin php crashed everything.
(didn’t think it would work, but it was worth a try)
does anyone here have any ideas?
new options that I haven’t thought of?
better ways to execute the paths I have?
