Xen Notices

Xen Notices 1.1.2

No permission to buy (£20.00)
The following release fixes a small bug that may only be an issue if you are using certain add-ons.

Specifically, the error is:
ErrorException: Undefined index: title - library/XenNotices/Listener.php:20

If you don't see this error being logged in, you may not actually need to update.

Product Details
In 2012 I released the Notifications add-on which proved to be very popular and ultimately inspired some of the new features added to Notices for XenForo 1.5. Not all of the features from Notifications could be added and this sadly left some people who were unable to move their Notifications to the new floating notices of XenForo 1.5.

Xen Notices aims to bridge this gap. The best of the remaining features from Notifications (and one or two more) have now been brought over to XenForo.

Upgrading to Xen Notices from Notifications
Xen Notices is a completely new add-on, therefore it can be installed side-by-side with the Notifications add-on. No data is transferred between them so your existing notifications will need to be recreated as notices.

How to download Xen Notices
Xen Notices is completely free to existing Notifications users, but the distribution of the add-on is moving to Xen Resources. To claim your free Xen Notices licenses, you will need to register at Xen Resources, and click the "Claim License" button (just above the Add to Cart button).

You will need your FetchApp order number and the email address it was sent to. You will have been sent an email with these details a fairly large number of times. The email subject will be similar to "Downloads for Order 854450387174967" and the email will be sent from notifications@fetchapp.com.

Once you populate your order number and email address, the license will be automatically assigned to you. If you are unable to for whatever reason, then start a conversation with me with as many details as possible.

Notifications 1.8 enables the ability to control, for each Notification, the visibility of the notification based on display width.

If you want a particular Notification to be hidden on mobiles, you can now set "Hide Below Narrow Width" and the Notification should no longer show on narrower displays.

In addition to this new feature, several bugs have been fixed, including an update to improve compatibility with newer versions of UI.X.

You should receive an e-mail from FetchApp containing a new download link, however any e-mail you have received about Notifications previously contains a download link which will also download this latest version.
