Create a changelog section
I was using a news section for a changelog much like userecho was https://support.teslafi.com/communities/1/topics/8-changelog.
It would be nice to a few features to make an actual changelog that a few other companies are charging for. Most things are already in place like subscribing to the forum but I eventually had to switch the changelog due missing two things:
1. Automatically sort by newest first in the forum so first time visitors don't start with the oldest first.
2. Implement some sort of widget with a badge of new unread posts in the changelog forum so users know there has been a new fix or feature when they visit the main site. This was mainly the reason I looked at changelog software so that users were aware of the constant development on the site. Even just an api call to check the unread post count for a user would work as well and we could script the badge of unread ourselves.
I found the way to set the sorting preference and I'm looking at the API again and not sure if there's a way to somehow script something to display new posts in the forum from it.
