This is my first post on Discourse.
I want to know If it is possible to have specialized timeline for users. For instance as a user can I choose to have topics from only Feature, Howto and Plugin in my homepage, both in “latest” and “popular” sections?
I am a fan of this idea
Recently, I’ve been thinking about ways to make the topic list page more relevant to particular users on forums with a wide array of activity.
One topic on the subject is here:
Another approach would be to allow users to customize what tabs appear for topic lists, and what is shown within them (via a search query or a selected list of categories).
For instance, I don’t really need to see the Bugs or Features tabs here on Meta, so I might hide them. Or I might want to create a tab for Ideas…
I offered to help spec it out before but haven’t made the time to do so yet
Still 4 days until student applications begin…
OK, putting it on my to-do list for this weekend!
And here it is:
On some forums with a large variety of content, users will be most interested in topics that fall into a subset of the categories or tags available. When this becomes the rule, rather than the exception, forum admins can configure the home page to be the category listing rather than the /latest page. But then users must choose which door to go down - and they may be interested in seeing a listing from multiple categories at once.
A few topics have been posted about this in the past:
