Ask for a plugin

    @zaerl

    I there, Zaerl here. I’ve made a couple of plugins on the bbPress 1.1 standalone era and now it’s time for me to join the 2.1.2 bandwagon. I’ve seen that a lot of 1.1 plugins haven’t been implemented/ported to the new infrastructure and it’s a pity.

    Are there some plugins that are needed? I have a couple of weeks to spare and I will be happy to help the community (for free obviously.)

    Have a nice day.

    P.S. I have also a 100% complete italian translation if you need it. I have translated it from scratch cause the GlotPress one is poor.

    There is one “must have” plugin missing on 2.x, what worked well on 1.x -> unread post plugin. Its already discussed under this topic http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/adding-view-unread-posts-plugin/

    In 3 words describing – when users logs in it sees unread topics in different color (new topics and topics with new replies counting from last user visit). When he enters topic its automaticaly redirected to last unread post inside topic.
    Old 1.x source code you can see here -> http://paste.php.lv/720a5c85e7a31f117a104d2a14ce368f?lang=php its just one file.

    I will work on that then. I remember Unread Posts, it’s one from ck.

    There is one that was released a few weeks ago: http://pippinsplugins.com/mark-as-read-for-wordpress/

    Pippin’s plugin is actually at http://pippinsplugins.com/bbpress-mark-as-read/ and it is free.

    It is still missing the functionality of new topic replies (from last visit) and automatically taking you to the last unread reply inside the topic.

    Thanks for working on this zaerl!

    @Tanya – you’re definitely right, thanks for posting the correct link :)

    @Zaerl I would also suggest having a look at @mordauk (Pippin’s) code at GitHub and contributing and or extending the functionality of this existing plugin. The code is on GitHub here https://github.com/pippinsplugins/bbp-mark-as-read

    Hi there. The plugin is in advanced state of development. I’m testing it in very large (+10,000 auto-generated topics) env in order to ensure that it will scale well. It will be released in a few day as an alpha release on Github. I can publish it now if you want but I prefer to make some more tests.

    I’m not using ck approach cause it generate problems with very large forum. Main functionalities are:

    1. Users can mark an entire forum as read (use an AJAX call)
    2. Users can mark a single topic as read (use an AJAX call)
    3. Every visited topic is marked “read” when accessed via browser
    4. Custom HTML class for unread topics
    5. Custom prefix for unread forums title (“[unread] ” or similar)
    6. Custom prefix for unread topics title
    7. Template functions for checking the state of current forum/topic

    These are the functionalities of the first soon-to-be alpha. I think that in future release I will add something like: custom loop for unread topic (maybe a separate page), count of unread topics, mark a forum as “always read” and other stuff.

    Who is an adventurous can write me at za@zaerl.com, I will send you back the prototype.

    Hi zaerl,

    In a visited topic, new replies are added, is this topic checked as unread from the last visit?


    zaerl
    Participant

    @zaerl

    1. Visitor check topic A, which belongs to forum F, at 10:00
    2. New reply in post A at time 10:05
    3. Visitor check forum at 10:06, the post A and forum F are unread
    4. Visitor check post A, the post is now read

    @zaerl It sounds great!

    For you what is the best place to put the link that mark an entire forum as read? Right now I’ve placed it next to “Viewing topic X (of Y total)” (filter bbp_get_topic_pagination_count) but I don’t know if it’s the best option.

    @matrixd

    I think a good place is in the same row, before the number of pages!

    Awesome. I’m thrilled to see someone building one that can scale for huge sites. Mine works really well for small sites, but definitely was not meant to scale.

    Visitor check topic A, which belongs to forum F, at 10:00
    New reply in post A at time 10:05
    Visitor check forum at 10:06, the post A and forum F are unread
    Visitor check post A, the post is now read

    @Zaerl how about functionality, when user enters topic @10:06 and it is automaticaly forwarded/droped to post made @10:05 (where user stoped reading last time he visited that topic)?

    Hi smiga. This is possible cause I save a mix of last IDs and last timestamp but I don’t think that I will insert this in the first release cause I’m having problems with deleted/merged/splitted topics/replies. I’m trying to avoid making additional calls to the database.

    “I would happy to test your first release!”

    That’s great. Write me at za AT zaerl.com. I will send you the prototype. I need to solve a problem regarding merged/splitted topics but the plugin is ready.

    Zaerl, when do you plan to release this plugin?
    I wanted to test it, drop you mail 2 weeks ago, but so far no response. Maybe you can drop me files to edgars.melnis@gmail.com ?
