yeah I hate it, the ugly thing made it's self my homepage and I cant change it back I'm so annoyed! searching vbulletin.com now but cant find anything

when i try to change it back to my content.php it just makes it go to content.php/activity.php and leaves me with a blank page!

Live wall is 1000 times better looks and works way better then this crappy stream that I cant figure out how to disable.....grrrrr

yeah I figured it out after I calmed down.....that activity is so ugly! why would vb want to promote that as the face of vb? sad really!

thanks for the info though!

I changed mine to Live wall :) which is much much better!

Well I don't like the new Activity Stream either and so far my members don't really care for it..I asked them what they thought of it and most of them say ..yeah its nice but what happened to the other one..Meaning the Live wall by DB Tech..One Member even said "Looks like a piss poor attempt to create what we already had that worked much better" So I will let it run a little while longer and disable it and turn the live wall back on..

It's not really much to write home about is it..Waste of an upgrade in my eyes..But hey they are vb....:confused:

It just seems they are trying to push the activity stream like its some big thing..But when you are use to using the Live Wall by DB Tech ..its not..The Live Wall is Much better.

The annoying thing is,that feature will now become standard stock..Very unfair..
yes it will and yes it is unfair..and you did notice they have it set by default for it to be the landing page that everyone comes to like they really have discovered something..

I kind of disabled it, i turned off all update functions set the preview to 1 and the days to keep info at 1 then disabled the button so unless you know that you are to go to activity.php non of my members will see this amazingly poor feature!

but if you click what's new you now get live feed :) which as always works great!

I'm really new to this running a site thing, do you know if we can just delete the activity.php from the server? i ask cause i'm thinking it is still causing queries even though it will never be used.....
