    In an add-on I'm developing I would like to send a custom alert.

    The main PHP code:

    $alertUserId 1;
    $userId 2;
    $username 'test';
    $contentType 'trader';
    $contentId 1001;
    $action 'insert';
    $extraData = array();

    // send alert
    and the template:


    When I check for the Alerts the red balloon shows a new alert, yet there is no alert message. What am I doing wrong?

    Thank you.

    Look at how XF sends alerts, e.g. XenForo_AlertHandler_ProfilePostComment

    In addition to needing that, it also needs a content type record in the xf_content_type table and a content type field record in the xf_content_type_field table.
