Edition: BlueSpice pro, BlueSpice Farm, BlueSpice Cloud Version: 4.1+


SocialWatch provides the monitoring system for SocialEntities.

Warning!Pages in the namespaces SocialEntity and User are indexed by search engines by default until prior to version 3.1.13. If you run a public wiki with an earlier version, you should exclude these namespaces from being searchable unless you want these pages to be indexed by public search engines.

This extension is designed to restrict notifications about social entities. So users do not get notifications for all changes to SocialEntities, but only for the SocialEntities they have on their watchlist. When a user creates or comments on a SocialEntity post, that post is automatically added to the user's watchlist. The watch button is automatically attached to all social entities. Not all social entities can be watched.
