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.

Makes the "view this thread" link in watched thread/forum emails actually link to the new post not jumping to the next unread post to reduce confusion.

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.

We just purchased this add-on and our users already love it. Instant email notifications and the users will not miss any of the important replies. Thanks a lot for developing this add-on!
We use it to notify our upgraded users with emails or forum notifications when they receive a new message in their exclusive threads (we do personal consulting in these threads). Since XF default behavior doesn't keep notifying users about a new message in their thread if they haven't viewed the latest comment, many of our messages were missed and the service we provide was not that great. This add-on solved this issue for us, so upgraded users will always receive notifications regardless of their thread viewing status. It's even better that it could be activated per a specific user group and/or nodes.
This is an excellent addon and great value for what it does. One of my forums has a lot of people who need to see some posts, but don't quite get the concept of having to go to the forum after getting the email notification in order to continue being notified. This works a treat...thanks xon. And thanks for updating to include watched forums it's a real boon.
