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:

I don't have this product installed, but I would first check this setting:

"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)"

I am running into the same problem where it shows the notification but clicking on it goes to the group page and doesn't easily show which group the notification is for.

Running 4.2.2 as well. The Thread/Forum Read Marking is set to Database.

vB does not track unread discussions. It only tracks unread groups: Meaning there is no way to show unread discussions for a given user. (At least it was that way when this addon was coded, and I am not aware of fundamental changes to this system).

This addon does all that is possible - you have the design limits imposed by IB to thank for the limits.

Incredible that Vb don't think to send a notifications for the social groups....

I see that is just present a custom code in the options of your plugin, it look to do that:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


But I'm not an expert... but this seems that doesn't work.
