As Designed guest post does not show up in "Recent Activity"

    While not all sites allow for guest to post new threads or replies, they should still show up in "recent activity" for those who do.

    Recent Activity is listed under the "Members" tab. So it should show your "Members Recent Activity". Guests are not members.

    That would be my take.

    Member tab is viewable by guest and "recent activity" should count toward all recent activity made by everyone who post.

    That is my take.

    Viewable by guests to see your "members --> recent activity". Either way. I cannot see how it's a bug.

    As you said, so they can also see your recent activity. So that should include all recent activity, made by anyone.

    I could not see it not as a bug.

    The phrase on the page says:

    Recent Activity
    Activity stream for all registered members at XenForo Community.

    Don't really see this as a bug, either.

    You can allow guests to view the Recent Activity page so that they see your members' latest activity or disallow them so they don't.

    Really think it should count for everyone.... I still see this as a design flaw (ergo bug).

    For us, guest are also seen as (unofficial) members. When you have a thread 3 - 4 pages long, it should count as "activity"

    I'm thinking to figure out how to "fix" this without changing core code....

    This is the designed behavior of this system.

    :rolleyes:

    I figured as much, but was hoping I was over looking something simpler (as such as a template edit or a single file edit).
