What's New Page by AddonsLab - An overview page showing all new content from XenForo and installed add-ons

Add-On Information

This add-on implements a new What's New page in XenForo 1.x. The page is meant to be a central place where all new content from default content types (posts, profile posts), as well as third-party add-ons, is shown.

The add-on is built based on XenForo coding standards on how an add-on should implement a "New Items" page, and all add-ons following this standard will be supported. Our add-on will detect the tabs on the page, no matter how many of...

Hello, @Kintaro !

  • is it possible to chose the order in which content types are listed?
  • is it possible to have multiple overviews displaying only some specified content types?
The answer to both questions is No, and the main reason for this is product's aim to support third-parties without any need to hard-code any add-on specific information. The way the product works is catching the URLs of the tabs, that are going to be added to the page on runtime, when the What's New Page page is being generated, then using these URLs (and the titles of the tabs) to build the page. So, if there will be some add-on, that will switch New Profile Posts and New Posts tabs with places, our product will have the profile posts show on top of new posts as well. If any add-on will add its own tab in front of New Posts tab, the section showing add-on content will be added on top of the page.

The add-ons/tabs, that are going to be shown on this page are not known anywhere else except the front-end, at the time of the page loading, so it is technically challenging to create admin panel options, that give you some choice (order of the content, the sections enabled) and keep being add-on agnostic, so most likely we will not implement any of options mentioned in future.

The add-on has a demo version freely available on our website (requires IonCube loader to run), so feel free to give it a try.

Thank you!
