Getting comments on site admin posts from Activity Stream to show on sidebar

    I’ve made a few site admin posts and these show up in the Activity Stream. Perfect. Now, when someone comments on one of these posts — while in the Activity Stream — I would like that comment to show on my sidebar as a “Recent Comments” item. Is this possible?

    Only comments to site admin posts do I want to show on the sidebar. If at all possible. I should have said that. If not, not problem. I can just probably take out that widget.

    I should just probably put ads on the sidebars. All the activity is inside ¬†the Activity Stream where it belongs and also in the forums and groups. I think I’ll consider putting other content in the sidebars.

    It would, however, be useful to try to at least get the comments connected to the site admin posts for informative reasons. Even if I don’t display the Recent Comments on the sidebar, at least I can interact with the members without having to jump into the Activity Stream.

    Any thoughts would be welcome.

    Great question. Good feature to have actually,
    I’ve always been a little annoyed that the activity stream comments are not like blog post comments

    Yep. It would be kind of slick to be able to receive, acknowledge, and reply to an admin post without having to jump into the activity stream. Just think, if a site became massive, the comment and the admin reply would become lost.

    When the admin may only write a couple of posts a day, the slow-moving admin activity could give everyone a chance to appreciate the posts, giving everyone the chance to gain the knowledge, lets say, from a site improvement announcement.

    A link on the static page could serve this purpose as well, I suppose.

    Thanks for joining my discussion @carmeetsroad. I appreciate it.
