XF 2.2 Persistent alert icon in 2.2


Active member
2.2 took a step in the right direction for improving alert notifications. It will finally leave unread alerts as unread instead of marking them all red when you hit the bell.

But there is one more thing that it’s missing that makes it hard to drop the Alert Improvements add-on by @Xon, still.

If you have one or more unread alerts the number on the bell should persist until you read each one or mark all as read.

This is what I use the add-on for. But with the changes that came in 2.2, is there possibly a simple modification that can be made to accomplish this instead of using the add-on?

If not, does anyone know if there is an open suggestion thread about this?
