Out of the box with Discourse. There are actually two solutions:
1. Based on the project’s tag
?order=activity at the end of the URL. You can click on fields to get your favourite reordering. “Activity” shows the topics in order of, well, activity: this includes creating the topic to begin with, but also adding new posts to existing topics (so far, so good). Unfortunately, you also get “uncodable activities”, essentially Likes and edits.
This only makes sense after we have decided which posts are part of OpenCare. There is a semi-automated way to do this from the categories: I’ll write a separate mini-instructable in this category.
2. Based on tracking categories
- Navigate to the page of the category you want to monitor, for example https://edgeryders.eu/c/opencare/diy-and-open-source .
- Click on the last button on the right under your avatar, next to the “New Topic” button. It is normally marked by an empty circle.
- Select “Watching”.
At this point, when you log onto Edgeryders you will see all new posts in this category as part of your notifications. However, beware: this may mean a lot of email messages.
