Installable with the Extension Manager


This applications provides a {{activity/}} macro that take the same parameters than the old Activity Macro But the underlying feature is handled by the Notifications Application

This has been made for retro-compatibility reason only. You should use the Notifications Macro instead.

If you decide to install the old Activity Macro, the present extension will automatically be uninstalled, to avoid a conflict with the macro names. To bring back the Legacy Notification Activity Macro, you need first to uninstall the Activity Stream Application and then reinstall the Legacy Notification Activity Macro.
