I know you wanted this ASAP but at this point there is just no way I can get to this before the first of the year. There is a lot going on (and I mean a LOT) along with the holidays.
If you haven't filled the order by then, I'll check in on this thread and go from there. Happy Holidays all!
Yes. This is one of the features that I would pay (have in the past in fact) to have done professionally by xenForo and maintained. For the types of sites I run (software development sites) it's a critical tool.
Along with my original (now expired) vb 3.8 licence, I payed for the Project Tools. They are now pretty much dead and useless to me, but I wonder what xenForo has in mind (if anything) to replace this?
I'd have to see the data structure then. Obviously, there must be a way to link them together :) In fact, shouldn't even need the data, and the board is free, so when I have time I'll just peek myself.

This simple mod would use Ajax to refresh the state of teh alerts tab. In addition, it would change the browser tab to the number of active...
Yes, and the samples are very much appreciated, as they save me some time. But I'm not really concerned about the specifics of the code. As you point out, there are a lot of addons and tutorials (plus just common sense) I can use for that. I've written plenty of code :)
My concern is more with...
I want to make the "What's New" filterable by forum per user. Right now it's just by forum, set in the admin cp.
I thought about extending the model, but doesn't that have the same issue, and create more false positives? (the model listener would in theory be called far more than the view...
