A community can have several ideation blogs. The connections ideation blog app makes navigating and managing those entries easier as there is an option to display the blogs first, selecting the blog in question and then browse through the indiviudal ideas in said blog.
The ideation widget has no such feature (at least none that I know of). All the ideas are completely mixed around. Having more than one ideation blog in a community therefor is a red flag - it's not possible to display them in the widget in a neat and orderly manner.
It would be helpful
a) if the ideation blog widget would have either the option to list the blogs first and ideas after, OR
b) there is an option to display only the ideas of a chosen topic, which would make navigation and usability so much better. I would very much prefer this option.
