Inbox Widget for BuddyPress

    With more personalization coming to the new default theme (especially the homepage) in BP 1.2, I thought it would be a good idea to drop an “Inbox Widget” into the homepage sidebar so that users could get a snapshot of the most recent private messages they’ve received.

    This quick plugin does just that. It enables an Inbox Widget allowing site administrators to add a widget to the sidebar. The widget will be only be shown to logged-in users who are currently viewing the homepage.

    See http://davidtcarson.com/inbox-widget-for-buddypress/ for more information and a screenshot.

    **WARNING** This is not a stable release and it will only work on sites running the latest trunk version (2244+) of BuddyPress.

    Notes

    • CSS support for read and unread classes
    • Widget visible only to logged-in users
    • Widget visible only on homepage

    I do plan on improving the functionality. But for now it’s super basic.

    great !

    is it possible to de-activate the “Notifications-tab” within the BuddyBar ?

    As this feature is somehow already available within the BuddyBar.

    I’m not sure what you mean. This doesn’t sound related to the Inbox Widget plugin.

    Can you please explain?

    well, just wondering if the “Notifications”-tab at the header-bar would be still required when having this widget within the side-bar ?

    Erich73, The notifications tab alerts users to more than the latest private messages. But it’s up to you whether you want to remove it or not.

    FYI – I just checked the Inbox Widget plugin into the repository –

    This is not a stable version and it will only work on sites running the latest trunk version of BP (2243+) with the bp-default theme enabled. It’s just something to build on and I’m hoping to add improvements soon.
