Tagged: Activity Comment Notifier
Our site members are complaining that they get a separate notification for EVERY reply to a comment thread they are included in. I notice that in the source code of the plugin there is a line that would remove previous notifications for an activity but that it is commented out. Is there an issue with uncommenting that? Would it make it so there is only a single notification for each thread?
See /core/actions.php line 24: //ac_notifier_remove_notification( $activity, true );
Welcome to BuddyDev.
I am sorry but I don’t understand why will you use Activity notifier plugin if your users don’t want to be notified of the comment.
That is the core idea of this plugin.
can you please help me understand a little better how you want to use this plugin?
They do want to be notified of comments. However, when there have been multiple comment replies on the same post since they were last on the site they see multiple separate notifications that show up in the list. All of those notifications link to the same parent activity post. It would be better it seems if there was only one notification.

I am sorry for the delayed reply. I have looked at it in details and the update of the plugin will take me some time. There are issues that I have noticed. For example, some of the notifications were deleted automatically. I am planning to rewrite the whole experience to use new BuddyPresss advances(like notification meta etc) in next 1-2 weeks. For the time being, Please download the updated version from here for a temporary fix(Instead of duplicate notifications, It uses individual user in the message for notifications)
Hope that helps.
I tested it. The issue with the git version is that the notification count on the bell shows the total notifications but then the dropdown only shows one notification. It seems it would be too confusing to our users. We have a few users that are really concerned about their notifications so anything being off is problematic. 😉
