Fixed News feed enable option not respected by templates

In the quick_navigation_menu template, it'd be nice if there is an if statement around the news feed links. Otherwise the links show up even if the news feed is disabled.

Instead of these two lines in the template:
<li><a href="{xen:link recent-activity}">{xen:phrase recent_activity}</a></li>
<li><a href="{xen:link account/news-feed}">{xen:phrase your_news_feed}</a></li>

wrap them in the if like:
<xen:if is="{$enableNewsFeed}"><li><a href="{xen:link recent-activity}">{xen:phrase recent_activity}</a></li></xen:if>
<xen:if is="{$enableNewsFeed}"><li><a href="{xen:link account/news-feed}">{xen:phrase your_news_feed}</a></li></xen:if>

As always, thanks for the good work.

There are links all over to this. I think this is probably more of a bug actually.

oops, I think it would be <xen:if is="{$xenOptions.enableNewsFeed}"> since {$enableNewsFeed} value isn't set to the template when it's loaded via AJAX

I just disabled the news feed here:


Problem is when viewing the Forum-View page I still see and can click the rss icons. I'm on v1.1.3.
