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 mechanisms in place to prevent unnecessary querying.


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

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

This mod is also available for vB 3.8.4:

Should you have downloaded before this post, please redownload.

I had to move the plugin from global_start to global_bootstrap_init_complete, since global_start is not executed in cms and therefore the mod would not work there.

This is genius! This should be a default option! The reason social groups aren't that big on my forums is b/c nobody knows when there is actually any posts to any of their groups. Good WORK!

+1, Social Group can be such a big part of my site as well if only there were more tools like this one available as part of the overall SG feature.

Thanks!

You are a member of social groups and/or are subscribed to them? And there has been a new message left by another member in one of those groups? What is your read marking system set to in AdminCP? You realize this is about subscribed groups, not subscribed discussions?

New build: 4.0.005

The queries have been completely rewritten and are now somewhat less ressource intensive. Also, this new structure fixes issues some users experienced. Please note that this comes with some restrictions:

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)

Can you create an option to go to the new group posts page instead of just to group.php?

[forum url]/search.php?do=getnew&contenttype=vBForum_SocialGroupMessage

I think that'd be the best place to link to so people will be able to quickly get to the message.
