We have started the process of switching from Classic to Lightning Experience. I have come across an issue where Chatter feed on Skuid detail page is appearing in Classic and not Lightning, we are missing all new LE features. Has anyone experienced this and knows any possible solution?

Hi Andrew,

There is a known issue affecting Skuid in Lightning that currently prevents Chatter feeds from loading in a Page Include. There was another issue affecting Chatter in Skuid pages that was resolved in the most recent maintenance release, 11.1.13. If you're not updated to that version, I'd recommend testing it thoroughly in a non-critical sandbox, and moving to that version. 

As an alternative, the Chatter feed can also easily be brought into the Lightning App Builder as its own native Lightning component, running alongside your Skuid page.

Hi Andrew. If you're seeing the Classic Chatter feed, that is probably because the Skuid page is inside a Visualforce page, or iframe of some kind. Skuid does make use of the Lightning Chatter component (as of 11.1). But Skuid will only try to load the Lightning Chatter feed if it knows it's operating in the Lightning environment natively (meaning a Skuid Page Lightning Component, or a custom Lightning component with Skuid page inside).

Hi Mark, Sorry for the late reply on this. Using custom Lightning components with Skuid page inside seems to solve the slow loading problem and the Chatter feed appears in Lightning, however, this brings unexpected behaviour with the Chatter feed. Users are not able to comment and the posts are appearing as a link. Is there a way to correct this?

Hi Andrew. Are you able to provide any screenshots, or visuals showing the unexpected behavior? One other option folks have used is to put your Skuid page next to the native Lightning Chatter component in the Lightning App Builder page rather than having Chatter inside the Skuid page. If your page isn't interacting with the Chatter component very much, I would recommend trying this out, and it also may optimize the page load times a bit.

Andrew, I should also tell you that I believe the Chatter / Page Include issue I mentioned was fixed in Skuid release 11.2.5, so any version past that should allow for Chatter feeds in Page Includes.
