Blog activity shortcode


The plugin gives users the oportunity to embed a summary of commented
posts within any page. When using the shortcode [blog_activity] when
writing in the content of any page, the user includes in the page, a
table that displays on each row information about a certain post
that received any comments.

The columns on which the information is distributed are “post” (the
title of the post), “By” (who created the post), “Published” (how long
ago it was published), “Comments” (how many comments have been posted)
and “Last Comment” (when was the last comment posted). Also, whenever
someone clicks on the plus sign adjacent to any post, the content of the
post is displayed, along with all the comments it received. This content
can be immediately contracted, by clicking the plus sign again.

The table can be adjusted to be expandable or non-expandable by using
the management options for the BlogActivityShortcode plugin.

Why is the table of the plugin not displayed, even though I included the shorttag ?

The plugin probably has not yet been activated.

Why does my posted content also show the shortcode [blog_activity]?

At the moment, the blog-activity-shortcode plugin only works when used
in pages. The content displayed by the plugin table probably
malfunctioned if you used the shortcode in a post.
