Module: Check Subscriptions
December 20, 2007 04:31AM
Hi, all.

A bit ago, I asked if there was a module that would allow a user to click a link and be presented with new messages from their followed topics.

This behavior is one step toward mimicking the WebX functionality of the same name.

It wasn't too hard to make this mod; most of the code is repurposed from follow.php.

I used mmakaay's fine "Recent Messages" mod as a base for the code, as this was my first Phorum Mod.

This mod has been in successful use for a little under a week on my Phorum installation, a 5.2.3-rc1 install.

Thanks for posting your module!

If you used my mod as a base, then maybe we should look into merging the functionality and making this another category for the recent messages module. When I've got some time I will check out if this can be done easily.

Well to be honest, there wasn't much code from your module I used, just the basic structure and the fact that it used the addon hook and the output hook.

I used your mod as a guide to understand where to put things and how to do it :)

I'll be working on another mod to add forum-following, and I'll probably end up revving this mod to support that.

No problem. Peeking at code to get one going is the best thing since sliced bread. Since I want this kind of functionality for the recent messages module too, I might peek back a little ;-)

About your package: It seems you had vi open when packaging. There's a lang/.english.php.swp file in it.

I don't understand. Isn't this already available from the Control Center? Can't you just link to that?

What I would like to see is an indicator at the upper right of all screens, saying "New Followed Topics", like the private message one. Something that changes to indicate if anything is new or not at a glance. This could then link to the existing control center page. Perhaps this is what you mean?

I'd also like to see the same functionality with the Recent Messages module. (right now you can't tell if anything is new until you go there)

Well, the Control Center shows a list of Followed Topics, which you then have to click on to read.

This mod makes a link you can click to be redirected automatically to the Followed Topics with new Posts.

I have a request for that kind of stuff for a client of mine. The basic principle is not too hard, but the trick is to make it a resource friendly implementation. I already have some ideas for a module that does this. This module would be fully independant from recent message and the module from this thread. It's different functionality and should be separate IMO.
