XF 1.5 Recent Activity template


New member
Hi all, had a problem I was hoping you could help with.

I'm trying to put the global news feed into another template for use on a different page. I have this code put into the template:

<div class="newsFeed">
<xen:include template="news_feed">
<xen:set var="$noContentHtml">{xen:phrase news_feed_is_currently_empty}</xen:set>
<div class="extra">
<xen:if is="{$visitor.user_id}"><a href="{xen:link account/news-feed}" class="button smallButton">{xen:phrase your_news_feed}</a></xen:if>
<xen:include template="news_feed_end">
<xen:set var="$itemLoaderUrl">{xen:link recent-activity}</xen:set>
<xen:include template="preview_tooltip" />

But it tells me that the news feed is empty, even though it's not when you go to url.com/recent-activity. I'm aware there needs to be a PHP callback but how do I do this? Would really appreciate it if someone could tell me what I need to do with the callback and also where to put the code please!

That code won't work on another template without the data being made available to it via an add-on.
