    A collection of improvements to the XenForo Alerts system.

    • For threads/conversation/profile pages, automatically marks alerts as read from content on a given page when viewed.
    • Mark unread link for individual alerts on the Alerts page.
    • Supports the following add-ons:
      • Post Ratings.
      • Conversation Improvements.
      • Report Improvements.

    Performance impact
    • 1 extra SELECT query per thread page request when the user has more than zero active alerts.
      • If there are alerts to mark as read, then an extra UPDATE is required.

    I recommend using Add-on install & upgrade to install this addon.

    Fantastic. The alerts system in such a need of an overhaul, these small tweaks save a lot of time and redundant checking of alerts after you've already viewed the content.

    This is the first add-on I've employed, which I'm puzzled as to why is not a core function of XenForo??

    Since XenForo does not automatically clear a user's alerts until they go and purposely hover over them with their mouse, one can read a bunch of posts they were alerted to and all those specific Alerts *will remain* in their Alert Tab. Boo-Hiss!

    This add-on fixes that! Once a user has read the posts they were alerted to, all those alerts automatically disappear from the Alert Tab. Simply stated, that's just how things ought to work. It lessens user confusion and saves them the time/effort of manually clearing (now-) unnecessary alerts.
