    I just implemented the Recent Profile Posts sidebar and see three updates from one person. Others have updated their profile posts, though, and their updates are not showing. What's the method for displaying the updates--or why would updates from some users be showing but not all?

    Only status updates or posts made on other profiles are shown.

    Replies to existing status updates/profile posts are not shown.

    You are using Widget Framework by the looks of it. Questions should be posted in the discussion thread for that add-on.

    I suggest you switch to the New Profile Posts widget which replicates the standard profike posts block. The recent profile posts widget is the old one.

    Yes, I am using Widget Framework. I thought that was the only way to get the New Profile Posts block. If not, where is it? I can't find it. Thanks.

    It was introduced in XF 1.4.

    Enter 'profile posts' in the ACP search for the core option.

    Yes, I see the "New Profile Posts to Display" box in Node & Forum List, and there's a "5" in it. Despite that being set, however, no New Profile Posts sidebar block appears unless I set it up using Widget Framework.

    If you're going to use WF, use the widget I stated in my last post.

    I'd love to, but I can't find it. Hence my question.

    Update: I am using the Profile Posts renderer in the WF.

    Ah, that was my problem. Wrong renderer.
