Is there a relatively simple way to get the creation of News items included in the site Activity stream?

Hi,

There is no easy way to do that.
If you want to implement this feature you will need to follow steps:
1. Create your own event table that will be connected to MonoX snEvent table.
2. Add a new event type to the table SnEventType for news.
3. Using Dependency Injection kick in your own repository and BLL for news creation.
    - This is necessary because you need to create saving of an event when user creates new news article.    
4. Create a new Event control that will inherit MonoX control and override following methods:
    - EventIdsToDisplay (Gets the type ids of events that should be displayed.)
    - FetchEventCollection
        - Using Dependency Injection kick in your own EventRepostory and EventsBLL for event fetching.
    - FormatEventText (Formats the event text that is shown in the module.)
    - FormatEventIcon (Formats the event icon - each event can have a separate icon.)

Regards
