Catching Up Just Got Easier: “Activity Stream” Bug Fixed

A bug that has been preventing access to older updates has now been squished.

The eduBuzz home page Activity Stream is a popular way to keep in touch with what’s happening around the East Lothian schools community.

Often, though, we’re too busy to keep up, and want to browse older updates. Unfortunately, a bug was limiting access to just the three most recent pages of updates. That has now been fixed, and you’ll find you can go right back in time – currently as far as 20th May 2014.

Back Soon: eduBuzz News “Activity Stream”

Final testing is now under way on software which will bring back the popular eduBuzz home page “Activity Stream” display of latest posts and comments from around East Lothian schools. We hope to bring it back within a week.

We were using BuddyPress software to make that happen, but advice from our new hosts was that it was overkill for our needs, as few people were using its other components. Our home page activity stream has always been a popular way of keeping in touch with what’s happening around East Lothian, so a developing a separate WordPress software “Plug-in” for our needs was proposed. That software is now in final testing.
