Notification when there are new files in Downloads Central at forum

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just came to this idea... One way to this would be to have this notification on the top bar near "Private Messages" for example, and it would be "No New Files", when there is something we haven't checked yet, and there would be "There are 3 new files" if there are 3 new files for example.


Also Downloads Section could be displayed as a section by itself - not as a subsection of Site Questions and Support, and it could change the icon when there are new files just the way a section icon would change when someone makes a new post there. Perhaps this could also work with comments from downloads section.


What do you think about this? I do guess this wouldn't be an easy task to do though, but I just wanted to bring out the idea. :)

I thought of this yesterday after reading your post. I thought we could get a small symbol next to where it says "Logged in as Mathew Steel" for example, it could be an envelope with a pigeon above it (just to keep the medieval theme :D) that when we receive a new notification (messages, subscribed topic post, download section activity) a number would appear next to it. We then click this and a drop down box appears. Similar to that of Steam. What do you think?

      New Years is right around the corner, so I thought that now would be a good time to post this thread. Do you have any New Years resolutions for next year? How have you done on yours from this  (soon to be over) year? For myself, I didn't set any this past year. For the following year, one of my goals is to spend less time browsing forums and social media, and instead, I'd should spend that time looking at and doing more productive stuff.

    • Site Downloads Renovation

      I'm pleased to announce that after a small (and complex) renovation, the site downloads section is now back online and running as usual. You can now submit your files to us again. Not much has visually changed, however there have been massive changes behind the scenes that have taken many hours to complete. I've essentially rewritten the entire downloads section from the ground up and restructured all of the database tables, which is not easy considering it's live data. One of the major cha

    • Notification System

      Firdt of all, I like the new notification system. It's an easy way to keep track of what's happening on the forums and the best part is being able to configure what sends notifications and which method it uses to send the notification. With that said, I have some suggestions for improving it. First, can we configure the notification system to encompass the downloads section as well? For instance, I would like a notification when a file I submitted there is approved or disapproved. Another e
