wpDiscuz – User Notifications

This addon adds a nice notification system to your site, so users can receive updates and notifications directly on your website as they happen. It checks and notifies when someone votes on your comment, follows you, rates your post, mentions you, replies to your comment, comments on your post, when your comment is approved, and in other cases. You can put the notification bell in the main menu using %wpdiscuz-bell% shortcode as a Custom Link URL and any phrase as the Link Text. This menu item will be replaced to a notification bell on the website front-end menu. As a second option, you can enable Web Push Notification generated and controlled by browsers. These kinds of notifications are displayed on the screen even if you switched to another tab or minimize the browser window. More information about the Web Push notifications…

There is also available a shortcode [wpdiscuz_bell]. You can put it wherever you want, in your post or text widgets content and it will be replaced with a notification bell on the website.

Two options of user notifications are available.

1. You can put the notification bell in the main menu using %wpdiscuz-bell% shortcode as a Custom Link URL.
2. you can enable Web Push Notification generated and controlled by browsers. These kinds of notifications are displayed on the screen even if you switched to another tab or minimized the browser window.

You can log in, for example here and check how the addon works: https://addons.wpdiscuz.com/wpdiscuz-giphy-integration/

Once you logged in you’ll see the notification bell in the main menu.

Since the integration addons are not handled like the bundle for Multisites, i guess you should ad a multisite license option to them

I know that – i mean its to expensive for large multisite owners (with wpdiscuz bundle) to add the new integration addons – and buy each subsite a license – you should create an offer for multisite users like the bundle offer.

Hi, I have a suggestion. When you mark a single notification as READ, it redirects you to the notification that you are removing, I guess it shouldn’t redirect you to anything or just the same page that you are.

Hello
Does the notification bell sound like a simple sound alert to draw the user’s attention?
Please make sure of this because it is important (An audible notification will sound on the notification bell)

Hello, on our website we had to purchase the BuddyPress Integration addon to receive notifications, I see here now you have a user notification addon
1) does this replace the BuddyPress one?
2) Do we need to have both, or will just the one work?
3) If I purchase the user notification addon, do I remove the BuddyPress one?

Thanks.

Hi canewsforum,
Please find my answers below:

1) Does this addon replace the BuddyPress one?

No it doesn’t. The BuddyPress integration addons is a large addon with many features. The notifications of the wpDiscuz BuddyPress Integration addon goto users profile page into the Notification tab. All notifications are generated by BuddyPress, and they are different notifications. This addon cannot manage BuddyPress notifications.

2) Do we need to have both, or will just the one work?

If your theme doesn’t have a Notification Bell in the front-end and the users don’t see notifications on the page, then you can use the wpDiscuz user notification addon. This addon adds Web Push notifications as well.

3) If I purchase the user notification addon, do I remove the BuddyPress one?

No, they do different jobs, and they don’t conflict with each others. However, if you already have a notification bell or other visible components displaying user notifications by BuddyPress, you don’t need to buy the Notification addon.

Thank you for contacting us juura!

All frontend phrases are located in the Dashboard > wpDiscuz > Settings > User Notifications admin page. You should translate it yourself. You can also translate it using the Loco Translate plugin.

If you finish the translation you can send us the PO/MO files so we’ll be able to include them in future versions of the addon.
