    Update (2016 May 28th):
    @Xon has taken over this @Daniel Hood's add-on. This product is now available for purchase again. For more information read this thread.

    This add-on enables you to keep alerting users of responses to threads regardless of the last time they viewed the thread. By default XenForo alerts users of a new reply to a thread they're watching only if they've viewed the thread since the last alert. This reduces redundancy. However, sometimes it'd be nice if users could continue to receive emails and alerts of new replies even if they didn't view the thread since the last one.

    Admin Panel

    This feature can be enabled either:
    • globally via the Options ("User Alerts" option group) area or
    • on a per forum node basis via the edit forum -> forum options page.
    There is also an option to allow user's to opt in/out of the feature. If you don't enable this option, all users will be opted in. If you enable it, they are opted out by default but can opt in via the "alert preferences" page in the account section.


    For the nodes that have it enabled users that are opted in (either forcefully by disallowing them to manage it or manually opting in) will receive notifications regardless of their last activity within the thread.



    I recommend using Add-on install & upgrade or [#] Install and Upgrade to install this addon.

    The development of this add-on was sponsored by @MattW.

    Good option to use on a site! I'd definity say that it helps a forum gain more interaction because people are not missing alerts etc!

    I never announced that this would be added and not a single person has noticed!but the forum has picked up with replies etc
