  • 1 extra SELECT query per thread page request when the user has more than zero active alerts.

Alert Summarization Performance impact
  • On accessing alerts above the summarize threshold, fetches all unread alerts and attempts to group them in PHP.

Xon has some of the most useful addons and this is one of them. He also has unrivaled support. Literally fixing bugs within a day.
Very nice to see this add-on updated to version 2.0. It was one of the add-ons I really liked with the old xenforo version, and has been missed by our members until now. Great work Xon!
Thank you for this free XF2 version, it is one of the essential addons before I can migrate. Xon is one of the most trustworthy XF developers, all his addons can be installed blindly, as everyone knows: it will work and it is safe.
