A global inbox?

  • calvinhsu


    I’ve disabled the adminbar on my site.

    And I have found the code to add links to and show number of new messages and friend requests.

    But just now I found that I also have to add link and number for group invites and group membership requests.

    So is it possible to combine all these together, having a global inbox for all the messages, mentions, requests and invites, and display the total number of all these?

    I see that the default adminbar have the “notification” menu, but it just drops a list of items linking to different pages. I would prefer all these notifications be stored in one place, from where users can reply/accept or reject.

  • It’s something I’ve thought about quite a bit. I might try building it into a theme I am working on or perhaps see if it could be considered for an enhancement for BuddyPress 1.4. It is possible but would be a lot of work and so it is unlikely someone will give you a copy-and-paste answer :)



    @Paul Gibbs
    Glad to hear that.

    Right now I’m thinking of grabbing the “Notification” item in bp default adminbar, which would at least be better than having four separate links to messages/friend-requests/group-membership-requests/group-invites.

    Do you have an answer how to achieve this?

    @acaps2007 has also mentioned this here:

    Not sure what you mean by “grabbing.”



    What I need is re-creating the notification menu while disabling other parts of the adminbar, that is, a notification label with a count of new notifications, and when moused over, it shows a dropdown list of those nitifications.

    Since it’s no easy work building a global inbox page, such a notification menu would still help a lot.

    I have an idea… You know how friend requests, group invites, etc… send you an email? What if instead they sent a message to your inbox? That would work as a global inbox, right? Any idea how to do that?
