Silly question - what’s the difference between ‘Action Streams’ and ‘Community Action Streams’?

Hello salguod,

“Community Action Streams” is the extension plugin of the “Action Streams”. It will add following events to the Action Streams plugin.

  • Create a new entry
  • Post comments
  • Add to favorites
  • Follow users

You can use “Action Streams” without “Community Action Streams” if you don’t need these MT events.

Hi, how can I connect Action Streams with my Facebook account and the opposite - what I write on my blog to appear on my Facebook wall? Thank you in advance.

That’s a great plugin, being able to get all the data from social sites is gonna be cool.

Hi Robert, you can not use this plugin to post content on Facebook. For doing that you can have a Facebook aplication which will do the job. On first hand I recall Networked blogs. It will do the job.

Community Action Streams is one my favorites plugins. By it I easy share YouTube videos not just from my stream, but also from the my likes stream. It needs just a bit coding to modify it and it would become a real content monster.

It’s really useful. I have a table tennis web page where I use Movable Type as CMS. Of course, youtube videos is the most used source of content for me, because I have to provide video from table tennis matches. I do it quite easily with this plugin.
