Is there a way to keep a Notifications stream or history?

  • Nahum


    Do notifications stay recorded anywhere to be able to create a notifications page with a history of all previous notifications read and unread.

    The notifications component is not really set up to do this. Notifications get deleted after they are seen, instead of just being marked as read. There is a column called ‘is_new’, which you could probably manipulate to do what you’re trying to do, though it’d take a fair amount of fishing through the codebase to make sure that you caught every attempted deletion and replaced it with a mark-as-read. Then you’d need to create the markup for the notification history page (which would be straightforward).

    This is a pretty good suggestion for a future enhancement. I encourage you to open a ticket on, ideally with a patch :)




    I got to writing up the ticket and it made sense to try and include other WP notifications like
    1. comments approvals [your comment was approved on X blog,
    2. drafts being published [ your posts was published ],
    3. if admin plugin/theme update alerts [3 plugin updates available]
    4. integration of Form submissions…I guess anything WP sends out emails for…

    Would also be a good place to record all previous BP Public Notices…and Forum notifications.

    basically a user private/personal activity stream for admin/dashboard type stuff.
