In the settings shown on the Usergroup Edit page, there is a setting "Is Manager". What exactly does it mean? Does it grant access to part of the settings for this plugin?

Hope my question in post #17 can be answered.

We've installed this and like it! Time will tell, but so far it's working! We have it set up so that only staff know about it, so that staff can 'follow' problem users to keep track of them better.

A feature request for a future release: I personally feel that a seperate tab on your profile for following would be better than sending PM's or emails. So to clarify, have lt similar to the Friends tab. So you get a notification (like you do for a friends request), you click on that notification and it takes you to your following tab on your profile (that only you can view).

4. Add content types for creates album, posts visitor message, creates calendar entry, etc.
Those will be taken into consideration in future updates of the mod.

None of those template have anything to due with Follow User, but I will see what I can do if anything.
For the tab on second navbar, it will be taken into consideration in future updates of the mod.

If I understand the file structure correctly, no all that does is over rides all the other settings, like having them all Yes.

Hi everyone,

This update is basically a bugfix / performance release, with a few requests added as well.

If you like the product you can show your support by nominating it for mod of the month and also please rate it to help cancel out the users who 1 star our mods.

As always, please make sure you revert any templates you may have changed in order to take full advantage of the update.

Also report any issues you find asap so I can get them sorted quickly.

Well without further ado here is the list of stuff.

Bug Fixes And Issue Fixes:
  • Fixed a issue where you would get a notification on posts when type is set to thread.
  • Fixed a issue when you updated your following settings, you would not get a re direct message informing you of successful changes.
  • Fixed a issue where users could be followed if they were in a usergroup that was not allowed follows.

Changes To Existing Features:
  • Removed the setting Is Manager from Usergroup Permissions as it was really a defunct setting.
  • Added html markup support for usernames on the Follow User settings page.

Additions To Product From Feature Requests Or Just Something Else Added:
  • Option to show signature in the pm sent to users who are following someone.
  • Option to show users avatars now show on the Follow User settings page.
  • Clicking on users name on the Follow User settings page, will now re direct you their profile.
  • Ability to select which usergroups can have "Private" follows.
  • Ability to show the users follow / following count in the postbit.
  • Option to choose seven different locations in the postbit to display the users follow / following count.

Chris

If you are talking about what you requested here, http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...99&postcount=9 then that has not been added yet.

I don't know if that one is possible, but if you follow posts or threads and they post attachments, you would still get the notice.

true, but a follower may not be interested in the post if it doesn't contain new attachments ... I know this probably only applies to certain types of forums
To complete it, it would also need to be able to track new attachments in an album.

Well just thinking out loud, this mod is actually pretty cool the way it is
