I have decided to do something good for the community - I especially want to thank Gideon and Scott and early developer NoahY. From those guys I learnt a lot regarding q2a and PHP over the past years - so please see my free release as a contribution to you :)
Instead of charging for the On-Site-Notifications Plugin I release it for free.
Description: Facebook-like / Stackoverflow-like notifications on your forum's website that can replace all email-notifications.
"Your users complain because they get too many notification emails from your forum? You lose overview and you do not know anymore what new events are important for you? Then the On-Site-Notification-Plugin is the perfect solution for you."
more info at: http://www.q2apro.com/plugins/on-site-notifications
plugin price: only 39 USD FREE
For any feedback or questions please comment below or on the plugin info page, thank you!
Installation Note: If you are using the q2a history plugin, you should disable/remove it from your installation before installing this plugin. Otherwise events would be written twice to the database.
Community Note: If you use the plugin and it works for you, please comment my "answer" below and leave a link to your forum!
For Problems: If you have any problems to get the plugin running, please read my comment here and - if you think it is a problem by the plugin itself - report with an answer or comment below. If you think your customizations or other plugins cause the conflict, please post the issue in another question.
For Donations: If you like the plugin and you think it is helpful, feel free to donate one coffee or praliné (3 USD?). OR just buy one of the q2a premium plugins!
