Foreword:

This it to be the first publicly released Application (Ever) on vbulletin.org and as such is currently in Beta phase and I would like as many people to help test and give ideas for new features.

This application does not incorporate any Vbulletin Code and thus does not require any modification to existing forum software, it should work with 99.9% of Vbulletin Forums.

If you wish to tell your members about this application please do, if you can offer a mirror for this file for the casual user to better enjoy using your vbulletin forum; please send me a private message or email at [email protected] so this can offload some of the transfer from Vbulletin.org

On a further note, the creation of this application was to promote the growth of Vbulletin and expand its current userbase.

PS. Be On the lookout for a new Application (Vbulletin Control Center); this will allow administration of multiple forums within a single application providing speed, reliability and cross platform interoperability.


Summary:

The primary goal of this particular application is to provide a 'live' notification system for the user who would like updates on his/her desktop when they receive new PM's as well as New Posts to threads they are subscribed to at the Forums they wish.

This application being very small in size will quietly sit in your taskbar and notify you when your selected forums have new private messages waiting for you

Current Features
  • Private Messages Notification
  • Configuration Via Editing XML Configuration File
Planned Features
  • Dialog Styles
  • Modifying Notification Background Color
  • Modifying Text Color
  • Configure Checking Intervals
  • Subscribed Threads Notification
  • Complete Menu Based Forum Configuration
  • Enable/Disable Particular Notification System and/or Forum
  • Installer Program to Handle Installation/Uninstallation
  • And more..

Compatibility:
  • Windows
  • Linux (In Progress)
  • Mac OSX (In Progress)

Info:
  • Primarily coded in C++ with come C library usage.
  • Heavy usage of the C++ STL
  • Uses the wxWidgets GUI Library
  • Uses the Microsoft GRETA Regular Expression Library

Instructions:
Due to this being a testing phase, not all features are in a complete form; until such time the configuration file must be edited manually via text editor (vbnotify.config.xml).
  1. Download Zip file, and extract contents to a directory.
  2. Open the README.txt file and follow the instructions.

Run at Startup (Windows)
How-To by gio~logist


Changes:
  • 3/2/2006:
    Updated: Page Retrieval; now pre-matches resulting in less resources and a faster notification.

Safety:

This is an open-source project after all, and with this not being a PHP project some people might not like the idea of not having source code. I have a CVS server that I plan to keep updated with any changes made to the code which can be viewed here: http://bleach101.com/cvs/?&cvsrep=vbcp&file=vbnotify/


License:

You can view the license for this project in the included zip file or here:
(In The Process of Location a New CVS Server.)

To Summarize:
  1. You are free to modify the source code and compile it for your own use.
  2. You Cannot use this source and redistribute it as your own product, or attempt to sell it.

Donate:

If you enjoy the creation of this program and would like to see it further developed, feel free to help me out a little for my time that I am putting into this.

I was working on a system like this, but used a java server to communicate to the apps. But it was site dependent. Imma look at the source, wish it was .NEt tho.

Menu Configuration is in process, should be available soon; manual editing of the configuration file is to be a thing of the past very soon.

As for .NET sorry; I dont code in any Microsoft derived languages or libraries for a reason.

ps. With exception of the Greta Open Source Library created by one of Microsofts Devs.

I haven't installed it, yet, as I am on a Mac. But once your Mac version comes out I would be delighted to help with the testing process.

I have clicked install so that I can get updates as to latest releases.

Many thanks for building and sharing this amazing application, I look forward to your future work on this project.

In short; currently yes you will be shown as logged in as long as its checking your private messages.
Ouch, so a user will be shown as logged in and new message pointers will not be correct as long as the user is running the program.

Sure wish Jelsoft would offer a hook for programs like these to check for new PM's and such without having to use a session variable that resets the new message pointers.(Hint, Hint to any Jelsoft dev reading this)

That is where you are wrong; new messages are handled by seperate cookies and this should not interefere with that system.

How to find your BBPASSWORD & USERID

Mozilla Firefox Users

Open Firefox and click on the tools menu at the top, then select options. A options menu should pop up with some tabs. The tabs should show

General - Privacy - Content - Tabs - Downloads - Advanced.

Click on the tab that says Privacy. On the bottom left you will see a button that says View Cookies go ahead and click on that button.

Search for cookies...
Now you will see a search box. Lets say you would like to add this for the vBulletin.org forums. You would simply type in vBulletin.org and press enter.

Your search results should show the following information: (You might have to scroll down the search results some)

Site and Cookie Name. Look for vBulletin.org as the site and bbpassword as the cookie name. Once you find that, click on it. Some information will be shown just under it.
  • Name: bbpassword
  • Content: (32 alphanumeric characters)
  • Domain: .vbulletin.org
  • Path: /
  • ...ect
All you want is the content value. Those 32 alphanumeric characters should be pasted into the XML file as the bbpassword.
Internet Explorer Users

Open your favorite text-editing program. Then open c:\Documents and Settings\*username*\Cookies\

At this point you will need to search that directory for a file that will be named something like this: Assuming you are using this for vBulletin.org. *username*@vbulletin[1].txt.

Once you find that file, open it up in the text editor and search for bbpassword. Just under that or next to it you will see 32 alphanumeric characters. Those 32 alphanumeric characters should be pasted into the XML file as the bbpassword.

*username* = The name you use to log into your computer. Example: Owner, home, ect..
Whats My Userid?
To get your userid, just view your profile... the url will look like member.php?u=123. Where 123 is will be your userid.

vbnotify.config.xml File
So now your XML file should look like so...


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

The bbpassword shown there was random to show you what it should look like. Hope this helps answer questions before they are needed to be posted.

I misunderstood your post I quoted then. If the new posts pointers still work correctly with this installed great!
