[Closed] Real time notifications
At the moment it's not possible to get forum/topics/replies alerts in a manner similar to facebook notifications or xenforo alerts, am i right? I see only a "subscribe" function that allows email notification.
If i'm correct, do you plan to add this kind of "real time notifications" in the future? I find it a necessary feature in modern forums.
Forum notification is based on emails. Admin and other users get notification emails once their topic is replied. All users can subscribe to any forum and topic and get quick notification. Admin should enable according options in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Emails admin page.
The live notification is not a forum part. Almost all forum platforms don't have such function by default. Forum users are not active like in chats or in social networks. This kind of boards are based on email notifications.
At the moment we don't have such feature in our to-do list, but I'll ask our team to take this under consideration.
Actually all major forums (vBulletin, Xenforo, IPB4) have this function. I've got a large board on IPB4 and willing to try wpForo with addons, but since my users got used to real time notifications them i can't really make a step backward.
Hope you'll make it some day, thanks for answering.
I second that this is a needed feature for new replies, likes, private messages, and if it becomes possible to get notified when a particular user posts.
To my opinion this feature is essential for any active forum and should be part of the core.
