What does this mod do?

This mod adds social groups to the notifications dropdown. Your members will get notified if there are groups containing unread messages; they need to be members of that group or have to be subscribed to that group. The counter will show how many groups with unread messages there are.


Installation:

Just import the product file in AdminCP->Product Manager. Done.
Make sure you understand and comply with the read marking requirements (see note down this post).


Settings:
  • Show notification for new messages in groups the user is a member of, subscribed to, or both
  • Select usergroups who can use the mod (i.e. who will get notificatons)
  • Select whether to link to usercp.php or group.php
  • Make sure you understand and comply with the read marking requirements (see note down this post).
Note: This mod will only work with database and automatic forum read marking!
  • This mod will not work with cookies or simple database read marking. This will not be changed and is due to the limitations of the read marking system.
  • If the ressources for this trouble you, you don't want to run this modification anyway. Any workarounds would be more ressource intensive than using this option in the first place.
  • To set this, go to AdminCP->Settings->Options->General Settings->Thread/Forum Read Marking Type and set this to the third option: Database (automatic forum marking)

Note on ressources:


Note that this modification adds a maximum of two queries to every pageload. Both are not too heavy, going to slave servers only if existent, and there are several mechanisms in place to prevent unnecessary querying.


Version history
  • 3.8.006: added option to link notification to custom URL
  • 3.8.005: queries completely reworked, should be more stable now and fixes some read marking issues
  • 3.8.002: bugfix, use slave servers
  • 3.8.001: initial release

#### Don't forget to click install! ####
No support if you don't!

He had me run a query to reset all the users groups to their status being read and now the mod works flawlessly!
Can you show us this query so that we can run this?

No. The problem lies in limited functionality in vbulletin itself. The best approach is to request functionality group notifications from vBulletin Solutions: http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBIV-10815

I've had to modify this mod so that the notification properly goes away. Specifically, you need to check whether the last social group read marking time is greater than the last post in all subscribed social groups.

Would you be so kind as to share how you did that? That problem is bugging my users.
