Personalized Feed


Personalized Feed is a new plugin in the Disabled Plugins tab in the admin console. Beginning with version 2.5.0, we allow community users to filter their feed based on different options: My Activity, My Follows, My Expertise, and All Posts. This type of feed is only available from the home page and not in individual spaces.
