    @smuddah

    i’m looking for a way to display the unread messages info (which looks like this in html)

    <span class="unread-count inbox-count" style="display: inline;">1</span>

    to be in the footer of my site.

    is there a snippet for it?

  • bp_adminbar_notifications_menu() is the function to call for creating the notifications menu… you will have to play with that.

    oh, i thought there might be an easier way. like <?php bp_show_unread_count() ?> :D

    you can easily recreate a new function with the one i provided, so instead of creating a dropdown menu it would simply show a count…

    Here’s what I use:

    <?php

    global $bp;

    $hmag_inbox_count = messages_get_unread_count();

    if ($hmag_inbox_count > ’9′) {

    $hmag_inbox_count = ’9+’;

    }

    echo ‘<span class=”your-style”>’.$hmag_inbox_count.’</span>’;

    ?>

    Displays a number for # of unread. If the count is greater then 9, it displays 9+

    i want my personal andy peatling right beside me when i play with buddypress.

    thanks a lot everyone!

    even tho the code doesn’t check for »pendig friendships« it’s pretty cool!

    <?php bp_total_unread_messages_count() ?>

    having a Andy Peatling in my living room when i code, would be really annoying… sorry but we would have to debate the usage of each function… not good.

    ROFL!

    i thought <?php bp_core_get_notifications_for_user() ?> might get all notifications, but that’s just empty. hmm

    Just a note “ echos the count.
    If you want to return the count without the echo use “
