Extension provide 3 separate type of alerts.

Also you can alerts on to any other topic. During install ext automatically subscribe author for their topics for last 3 month.

2) When somebody quoted your message.
3) When somebody use your nick in form



With installed fancy_jquery alerts status updated automatic without reloading page — settings present. Default is off.

Dont upgrade if you have version before 0.10 - instead remove it and install version 1.0

Re: [Release] Fancy Alert

I freaking love you.
It's so easy to keep up with posts now.

Huuuuge thanks.

Re: [Release] Fancy Alert

It is alpha version - working prototype - i need time and user feedback for complete extensions.

Hot question - when need remove quote alerts?
In version 0.7.2 its remove when u go to post message with quote with use link Go to post.

Re: [Release] Fancy Alert

In version 0.8 quote alerts removed when you read topic page.
Removes only quotes alerts for messages on current page.


Re: [Release] Fancy Alert

I've been updating different topics of mine with another account, (been trying quoting as well as just a normal post) yet it doesn't seem to update "T:#" when it's for an update of a topic made before Fancy Alerts was installed.

Apart from that I'm loving it smile

Re: [Release] Fancy Alert

T:# works only for new topics, isnt?


Re: [Release] Fancy Alert

Yeah, any way to get it to update for old topics (ones before Fancy Alerts was installed) ?

Also: when I deleted some posts I was quoted in, it didn't remove the "Q:#".
So it's showing Q:3, and when I click it says "Your search returned no hits. ".

Re: [Release] Fancy Alert

Maybe in feature.

i checking deleted problem... version 0.8?

Re: [Release] Fancy Alert

Can not reproduce on 0.8 — in this version Q updates when your view topic - even before you view delete link.

Update Quote alerts on non-silent post edit and fix delete error.



Re: [Release] Fancy Alert


Possibly (sort of) incorporate this extension: User Tagging. So it says "Tag: #" when someone's said @Username about you in a topic?

Re: [Release] Fancy Alert

It is problematic becous punbb`s usernames may have space - an i have no idea how extract this usernames from text. Usertagging for PunBB ext no find this names too.


Re: [Release] Fancy Alert

@dimkalinux This isn't really "clean" solution, but imo it would be possible to take the @text and query DB with it
[code=mysql]SELECT ... WHERE LIKE '$found_part_of_nick%'[/code]
and then use strpos for looking up the whole username   smile

Re: [Release] Fancy Alert

Grez, i think its bad idea by several reason.
2 way:

1) use tag arround name - [user]username[/user]
2) use form


in start of line.

In my forum users use second way and havent problem.


Re: [Release] Fancy Alert

Well then is it possible to make any space in a username be the same as an underscore?
So in code it would show up as an underscore rather than a space?
