Interesting add-on. I'll certainly be watching this and seeing how it evolves. Excellent work as always. :)

Would alternate coloured alerts be out of the question for smarter alerting as a suggestion and direction you would be willing to take xfrocks? Say for example Tag alerts = colour1, like alerts = standard colour, quoted alerts = colour2, profile alerts = colour3.

Hopefully i describe that correctly and it makes sense.

My concern is that I will pay $10 for something that will most likely be added to xenforo's default features. This is a great idea & is certainly needed but the price tag for such a feature is what turns me off.
My first reaction was:
xfrocks is worth the $10.
My second reaction was:
You might be best suited to vBulletin Connect. Try this for $400.
Third:
Just pay the $10.

Let it be known, I have spent a good $150 on modifications alone here. I am certainly not doubting the authors ability. I am simply expecting XF to add this in a future release. If they don't? Be certain my $10 will be in the account of the author. Thank you @Digital Doctor but I left vbulletin for XF. I get it. I truly do =)

Sorry if the price tag is bad for you :(

I wish this and Mass Alerts by Luke Foreman were one addon.
Err, that add-on and this doesn't do anything in common. You should be able to use both add-ons at once without problem. I haven't tested that FYI.

His addon doesn't work for me anymore for some reason. Only mentioned it cause it would be a cool feature of this addon, even though you have a similar feature in BD Tag, but some people will uninstall BD Tag since Xenforo 1.2 has tags. So adding group alerts to this would be perfect timing.

Thanks for the suggestion. I may consider adding the mass alert tool for this add-on.

Thanks. I enjoy your BD Tag mod, but I will uninstall it when I'm able to install Xenforo 1.2 because Xenforo 1.2 will have a tagging feature. I would not leave it installed just to use group tagging since I bought Luke Foreman's Mass Alert addon. But if you added Mass Alert's to this, I would basically be buying Mass Alert's twice with this addon, which is fine by me because that AdminCP feature is a must-have.
I'm sold. If and/or when you do I'll purchase this. Hopefully you will. (y)



edit: I purchased the mass alerts and it still works for me @DRE Add-on conflict?



I probably just need to uninstall and reinstall it but if xfrocks adds it into bd Alert's I'll just buy and install his.

I have way too many addons on my site, according to most of you. If I can uninstall addons while keeping cool features like bd Alerts I will. The odd thing is that this addon, as cool as it is, seems like something the developers may add into a future version of Xenforo.

Now that I think about it... when you get an alert in this addon xfrocks, does it just add to the same action?

For instance,

Tommy liked your post.

You get an alert for that.

Then, Josh likes your post. You then get a "Josh and Tommy liked your post"

When Bryan likes your post, does it then say "Bryan, Josh and Tommy liked your post"

Does the last person who liked your post, name show up first in the list of grouped alerts?

I'm with you there DRE (and i own mass alerts myself) if xfrocks adds in the mass alert thing I'll purchase right away. Good suggestion btw *refers to your earlier post for adding it in if it does get added*

I've start removing add-ons (down to 24) soon to be 23 so anything to condense that is all good.

it seems interesting. Problem with me now is, I cannot comment on any profile message because I have fear what if next two user get into a long conversation ? I will get 10000 alerts (each alert per post).
If this addon solves this issue, as I do not think 1.2 does. I will be a happy buyer. (I hope you get my point tho)

That's correct. The last person will show up first (and his/her avatar will be used). When there are too many users, they will not display like "and 5 others". Very similar to Facebook's notification.

Didn't notice the problem until your post. New version will address this issue ;)

With TagMe installed, is there a way to merge the alert if someone quotes your post and tags you in the reply? Currently, the system produces two separate alert notices.

I believe the latest version of [bd] Tag Me (v1.7.5) have that issue fixed. Can you try again?
