Forum Tips: Setting Up a Custom Stream


Recommended Posts

I wanted to post a brief tutorial on a Forum feature that I find essential: custom streams.

If you just open "forum.mygolfspy.com," it takes you to the Forum home page, which defaults to showing the organizational categories of the Forum. But if you're a regular member, you don't want to see the structure: you want a stream of the most updated content. So start by clicking the "Recent Posts" button in the upper right of the screen:

At the top of the Recent Posts page, you'll find this tool bar, which is where the magic happens:

Here, you can customize how you want the content posted in the Forum to show up for you. My stream, for instance, is set to group everything by threads, organized by those with the most recent post. I show all the threads, whether I've read them or not (unread threads remained bolded). A big tip: I just checked the "tests_tests_pl" (not the most elegant name, and I'll look into changing that) to my "Content Types" options, and that now includes all the posts made to the new 2021 Official Testing threads to my feed!

If you want to check out my feed, you can do so at this link: https://forum.mygolfspy.com/discover/26/

I think it's really cool that, if you create a custom stream and save it, it creates a static link that you can reuse and share.

Great addition;  this is what I have been looking for.   It even takes you to the most recent posts!!!!    The only issue/bug is that after I read the post it doesn’t mark it as read until I utilize the mark site read functionality.

I'll check that out further. For me, after I opened the Edel thread I just posted in, when I re-opened my "recent posts" feed, it was marked read. If you just hit "back" in your browser, it often won't show it as read.

This is awesome and a great solution to let those testing threads show up in an easier location so we can follow along easier.

Normal thread disappear after I read them, both when I hit the back button, and when I reload my “unread posts”.   The test threads stay in the unread state for me.

@GolfSpy MPR, you might want to edit the title.  I thought it was going to be about a building a steam room😉

  • GolfSpy MPR changed the title to Forum Tips: Setting Up a Custom Stream
  • 2 weeks later...

Not only does this deserve a bump as it was super helpful, but also a quick heads up for those that we are working on placement for the testing opportunities section. We hope you understand we are taking feedback from the membership and trying to both integrate the new system and make it as fluid as possible for all. 
That being said we have moved the section out from under reviews to its own tab which will send you directly to all the testing opportunities. Hopefully this helps and we will continue to try and update you with any other changes that may come up.
