Order & ranking in newsfeeds and forums

  • Updated


In the homepage newsfeed, the section Messages of a group or a session, and the profile page of a user, we order posts according to a score, which depends on:

  • the date since publication;
  • the nature of the item (post, reaction, new course, etc.);
  • the author (admin, learner);
  • the contents (text, documents, links, mentions);
  • the engagement (number of reactions, answers).

In case of equality, we favor the most recent post.


In the forum of a course's activity, a Learning Need, or in the correction of an Open question, we display:

  • First, pending comments (ordered chronologically — oldest at the top).
  • Then, the liked posts (ordered by number of likes — most liked at the top).
    • In case of a tie, the most recent at the top.
  • Then, the rest of the posts (ordered by chronology — oldest at the top).

We make no distinction between public and internal posts in the forum.

If no post is liked, then all posts are displayed chronologically.
