  • User Option to adjust summarization threshold

Supported content types for alert summarization

  • Ratings (From Content Ratings)

Performance impact
  • Adds an extra column to xf_alert.
    • Code:
      alter table xf_user_alert summerize_id add int(10) unsigned DEFAULT NULL
  • 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.
Alert Summarization Performance impact
  • On accessing alerts above the summarize threshold, fetches all unread alerts and attempts to group them in PHP.
  • On successfully generating summary alerts, 2 queries are done. 1 insert to add the summary alert, 1 updating summarized alerts.

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.
