Q&A

Welcome to Codidact Meta!

Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.

Can I view questions across multiple sites (or the entire network) on a single page?

On a different set of Q&A sites, my usual entrance point was/is a page that shows questions from across the network on a single page. It does so in three ways:

  • "Hot questions", meaning questions with particularly high activity;
  • Filtered questions, meaning questions from one or more sites, possibly filtered by tags;
  • and real-time, which wasn't useful as the other network was far too busy for that, but could be useful on codidact for now.

I found this very useful, and it was/is my usual entry point apart from web searches. Do any similar features exist on codidact? I might be interested in multiple sites but not all, but browsing through each of them to check for activity.

I read that a network profile is planned, but that seems to be about users, whereas I mean one for questions.

Unfortunately, such a page does not yet exist.

However, there are two alternative methods of finding new top-level posts across all sites:

  • The Codidact Community Chat lets you monitor a set of rooms that a bot posts new questions into shortly after they are created on Codidact. This will allow you to monitor new questions as they come in, although it won't provide you with any centralized list, sorting options, or new activity indication. This also happens to be a Discord server, which it's understandable if you'd like to avoid. It seems to be the consensus that Codidact should switch away from Discord sometime in the future, but that takes resources to do.

  • The Discord bot relies on RSS feeds, which you can also use yourself. You'll need an RSS reader for this, though. In each category in each community, there will be an "RSS" button that'll take you to an RSS feed that you can monitor. I'm not sure if there's a way to grab all of them at once, and if not, it'll take some work to get all them monitored.
