Is there any wa to paginate the activity page?


I mean to bring 1:2:3...Next

to it?
Q2A version: Q2A 1.5.4
+1 for pagination of the main page :)
which was requested a couple of times already.
Pretty sure this was already asked and gideon answered it's not easily possible.
In that case is there anyway to have recent activities somewhere on the side bar? I am thinking to make the /question my main page as it has pagination and then, display a list of most recent activities on the side, can we do that?
@Waterfr: As soon as I find time I gonna release such a widget, where you see live events. A reduced version you can see on http://www.gute-mathe-fragen.de/ below the "Liveticker" button.

I'm still thinking about the best way to get around this, without complicating the schema too much..."

Yes, I asked that 2 and a half years ago.

I am still interested and would be happy to have at least lets say a total of 500 entries so that with 50 per page i could offer 10 pages.

But this is a different issue.
I have suggested a workaround for the pagination of activity page:
