Indicate attachments when displaying forum entry in the Activity Stream

An user creates a forum topic or reply and adds attachments to this forum entry.

A new entry is created in Activity Stream (e.g. "Updates" on Homepage).

In the activity stream itself, a teaser text is display with the option "Show more".

If the user clicks "Show more", the complete text of the forum entry is displayed.

But there is no indication that this entry includes some attachments.

The user has to open either the embedded experience or the original forum entry to see that there are some attachments.


Enhancement request: Add an indication to the activity stream entry that a forum post/reply includes attachments.

    Extra info:

    If the user clicks "Show more", then more text is shown, but this may still be not the complete text!

    This can be misleading , because the user might believe that he saw the complete text after clicking on "Show more", when in fact he may still have missed some part of the text.
