Question Recent topics per category

Hi

Is there a way to get the recent topics but just of certain category and link the url somehow?

For what I can see, not even on here at kunena.org the recent topics by category work. If I select the category dropdown, it moves me there directly when pressing the "go" button.

I need to be able to select it by category because I have tons of posts per day on different areas which are of no interests to the others. For instance, people writing on Math has no interest to know the recent posts on Language. So having something like domain.com/forum/recent?id=math would be nice so those can be directed there.

Any way to achieve this already with the current system?

you can create menu items, with recent topics, there you can select your categories.

Thanks, I've tried that.
I'm actually looking for Recent Posts, not recent topics. So people can see the most recent posts.

The problem with the way you told me is that it seems not to consider sub-categories. So in my case if I select something like "English", it ignores all subcategories inside English.
I tried then manually selecting all of them, but the layout looks very different compared to the default recent posts layout (no graphics, it just looks like a plain text page and pretty ugly. It has no info on how many posts were there and so on).

1) you can choose recent posts on new menu item
2) Sub category you need to add manually.
3) Yes the layout is different on the view, I will change that in the next version.

Thanks, it would be awesome to also allow to select per language the categories displayed.

Meaning if you are in English the recent topics will display English topics, while in Spanish the Spanish topics. Something like: recents for all languages, select recent categories for Spanish, select recent categories for English.

you can do that already by the language option on the menu item.

I don't see how. When I select a language, it is always the same category options for it. It doesn't change per language.

Create recent posts menu item select language "english", set category "english"
then create another menu item select language "Spanish", set category "spanish"

So when your profile language is "English" then the Menu item will load the English recent posts, or when you have "spanish" language then it will show the Spanish posts


If you use the language module, you can also linking the posts together.


So When you are on the English posts, you click on the Spanish flag, then it will be linking to the Spanish posts. But you need a Multilanguage site, from the beginning.

what about the default recent stories tab then? It loads it by default when entering the page. How does it know which one to pick there? (which language)
