    Shouldn't be too hard to do, question is do we stop displaying topics in the unread page if you are not following them?

    We could mix the two features together... so by default, you follow all categories, so all replies show up there.

    If someone wanted to change the behaviour of the unread page so that only posts which he/she has replied (or explicitly followed) are shown, then they can ignore all forums, and those topics will still show up.

    I would make a separate thread for this BUT I think that the notifications need to be a bit more robust in general. On a busy site we get flooded with notifications that are useless. Tons of "upvotes" and no way to keep track of what you want to follow. Using unread is tough because you see the unread of everything, not only of what you follow. There needs to be some combination of a view of "new" posts and a view of all unread (like there already is) and a few of "unread of what you follow". Things like that.

    On Spiceworks they use a variety of views including emails of every response to every thread that you follow and an email of every new thread in every group that you follow along with web views of "latest post" and "latest unanswered" and the like. You need, I think, more than one view to get everything that you need. When a site is slow, unread is fine. When it is busy, that doesn't work as you can't unfollow something that you are not interested in as it will always pop up to the top again.

    MangoLassi is now at a point where people are struggling to keep track of what is going on. And our traffic easily doubled this week, so it is getting worse quickly.

    @A.J.-Stringham For now, we can at least offer the ability to "ignore" certain categories. Possibly we can extend this so that even if "category 1" is ignored, if you've subscribed to a topic, new replies for that topic will still show up in the unread page.

    How feasible is this @baris?

    that's a good start. We have a "news" category that a lot of people do not want to necessarily follow. But when they want the news, they can navigate to it.

    Please tell me, will soon be able to receive messages by e-mail? Whenever the name mentioned, in response to the topic.

    Very very very very right!


  • Plugin & Theme Dev

    I myself could this be implemented? I would not want to do and then find the output update which will need to remodel or will it be done by you. Although, you do not think anything bad, please, I'm very, very interesting.

    I found a few files that are involved in this:
    messaging.js
    notif_chat.tpl
    modules.js

    Please send in the right direction for what else is required.

    Still need to add a point below the alert from the chat

    "Send an email if a new message in my post arrives and I am not online"
    and
    "Send an email if a new message in post with My name arrives and I am not online"



  • I have a few suggestions for implementing the email notification and reply.

    1. NodeBB already has privilege section in the admin panel. We can add a "receive notification" option to the privileges. This setting will allow the admin to select groups which will be notified by default when activities occur in a category

    2. NodeBB can also provide a notification section in the user settings. The user can specify categories to receive emails; and the different activities to receive notification for.

    3. A user will automatically be notified about activities on a topic when he creates a topic or comments on one. There can also be a checkbox to allow users to unsubscribe

    You do know about "watching"/"ignoring" etc on topics and categories, right?

    My users have this now.
