[Resolved] Follow Plugin Notification Switch

    Ok, so I am starting to develop a community based on WordPress – Buddypress – Youzer and the follow plugin which is sadly not getting any updates.

    What I need is a toggle to turn off follower notifications so my users can decide if they want to receive an email upon someone following them.

    I already got a switch on my Youzer configuration but I would need the follow plugin parts.

    I got this switch placed on my class_yz_basic_infos.php

    
    		$Yz_Settings->get_field(
    			array(
    				'title' => __( 'Follower Notifications', 'youzer' ),
    				'desc'  => __( "Email me when a member starts to follow me", 'youzer' ),
    				'id'    => 'yz_bp_follow_notification_settings_content',
    				'type'  => 'checkbox',
    				'std'   => 'on',
    			), true, 'youzer_notifications'
    		);
    

    and added yz_bp_follow_notification_settings_content but it looks like bp_follow_notification_settings_content is not the right switch or at least not user based.

    Can anybody help me with that? My users are complaining they got annoyed by all the mails they get.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Mike,
    Welcome to BuddyDev,

    The BuddyPress follower plugin already has the notification option for users to select if they want to receive mail on follow or not.

    Please check it.

    I am assuming that you are using 1.3 branch from github

    Hi Mike,
    The option is available under User profile->Settings->Email tab.

    I am not sure if Youzer keeps this tab or removes. If it is not there, you will need to contact them for it.

    I do not use Youzer, so not sure with their hooks. All you need to do is create a user meta

    
     notification_starts_following
    

    and set it to

    no
    

    for the user and they will not receive the email(The BuddyPress follow plugin checks this meta for the leader before notifying them).

    PS:- Your plugin version is correct.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Again, thanks for the fast reply 🙂

    This hook seems like the one I was looking for.

    I will test this and report if I get this to work with Youzer.

    Perfect, this was really the hook that I was looking for. Thank you very much.

    What I did is, I’ve added this:

    
    
    		$Yz_Settings->get_field(
    			array(
    				'title' => __( 'Follower Notifications', 'youzer' ),
    				'desc'  => __( "Email me when a member starts to follow me", 'youzer' ),
    				'id'    => 'yz_notification_starts_following',
    				'type'  => 'checkbox',
    				'std'   => 'on',
    			), true, 'youzer_notifications'
    		);
    
    

    To Youzers “class-user-basic-infos.php” right after the friend request setting. You can find this file here:

    youzer -> includes -> public -> core -> widgets -> yz-widgets

    Hope this helps anyone else looking for how to add this option.
