Excellent.

Would it be possible to make the "room" names generic, e.g. Forum 1, Forum 2, etc rather than Admin, Mod, etc?

A bigger request. We have one public forum where I'd like to have this working for everyone (not just staff). Is that possible at all? We use the Core theme so users already see the bar at the top.

Yeah, I will start working on that.

Yeah, that should be possible.

Do you want to set the name yourself or do you want it to get the name from the forum ID?
Ideally set the name ourselves.

How I think we'll use this ideally is:

Staffroom (staff-only)
Reported Content (this is the subforum where our reports go into, rather than the report centre, staff-only)

Announcements (viewable to everyone and tells them if there's a new post in our announcements forum).

I know I can always change the phrases, etc but it'd be nice to set them from the addon options.

Getting it to work so you can specify whether they're staff-only or visible to all would be the killer feature for us. Like I said, as we already have the Account options in the "mod bar" area, everyone can view the bar anyway.

OMG... I MUST have this... you have no idea how many times I have had to tell my staff to go read the mod or admin forums! I am going to download it now, will let you know how it runs later. *Gonna attempt to install this myself -- that is skeery!*

Ok, @Daniel 'RTRD' -- I have an Admin room, a Mod room, then a Reported Content Room (which somehow I set it to where it doesn't show the report bar any more and can't figure out how to get it back or why I changed it) but anyway... It's nice to know I can edit the phrases... but my question is... I didn't see any permissions to set for this.

Can only the people with proper permissions even SEE these links at the top? If for example mod's can see admin room has messages waiting to be read, I won't like that. To their knowledge we only have a mod room. If they do see it and attempt to click it, I assume they won't be able to get in. But can your please make this a little more clearer to me? -- It would be nice to just be able to type in the usernames allowed to see which ones or user groups if not.

Do you realize how helpful @Daniel 'RTRD' this add on is for me? I have mods that don't pay close enough attention and because of this add-on they catch new posts in those forums every time now! Now if those little tweaks could be made, it would make me a SUPER DUPER happy camper! ;) LOL! Seriously though, great add-on!
