vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (17 votes - 4.76 average) Installs: 108
Released: 21 Oct 2008 Last Update: 09 Dec 2008 Downloads: 1114
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Re-usable Code  

Let's take a look at following screen-shots first.









Yeah.. these look like Gmail Notifer application which is actually vbulletin-desktop-notifier application. As a forum admin, you might want to offer such application to your members.



== Video tutorials ==
Editing
Uploading
Installation

You can use vBulletin Desktop Notifier as dekstop client or free to build your own following API-DOC .



== Demo watch video ==
I'm offering demo in my forum. Here're the steps.

Download vbulletin-desktop-notifier and install in your machine.

Run vbulletin-desktop-notifier and login using
username: priti
password: 123456

Create a new thread at Demo vbulletin-xml-rpc-server threads or reply to existing thread.

You'll see notification in your desktop within few seconds.

Request: Please do not change password for user Priti. If somehow the login does not work you can try by creating a temporary user.



== Coming up next .. ==
Based on feedback I'm listing few of the enhancements that will be part of upcoming releases.
  • Server Compatibility check script
  • Options to select forum ids in User CP
  • Display avatar of the person who made post in the notification window
  • Unread private message notification
  • Support for PHP4


Alfa1 came up with these ideas
which hopefully will be integrated sooner or later in future releases:

- friends coming online

Which of the following events does this notifier alert to:
Member notifications:
- profile messages awaiting approval
- requests to join your social groups
- invitations to join social groups
- unread picture comments
- picture comments awaiting approval
- group messages awaiting approval

Moderator notifications:
- post awaiting approval
- threads awaiting approval
- events awaiting approval
- attachments awaiting approval
- members awaiting approval
- blogs awaiting approval
- blog comments awaiting approval
- profile comments awaiting approval
- group comments awaiting approval
- pictures awaiting approval
- picture comments awaiting approval

== Ongoing Discussions .. ==
discussions on release-02 starts here

== HOT FIX [release 2.0].. ==
Rename all files in system/application/models directory into lowercases. i.e:
Forum.php => forum.php
Settings.php => settings.php
Token.php => token.php
User.php => user.php

Not sure I understand how my members would install? Is there a way to make this so it's like an executable?

In your PHP Docs you list a to do for forum.php function forum_latest_thread as:

Tags:
todo: check usergroup permission
Is that to say that you know that private forum thread titles are revealed in the latest thread list?

You also list,
* check for banned account
* check for verified account
Is that to say a banned user can read thread titles?

I've released source of sample desktop application .

You are free to modify the source code. Basically you need to edit config.cnf file.

After making changes you need to bundle as JAR/EXE file and make that downloadable to your forum members.

Yes. Any recent post title will be popped up but there's no way contents will be revealed.
In next release, I've plan to add a checkpost according to feedback for current release.

uuhm is it also posselble to select a forum id.
So it will only notifie of new threads in that forum id.

If so then then will be a great mod.

I still don't get the instructions?

Do I upload the package that is here at vb.org, then go to the google page and download the executable for my members?

I guess you are looking for options in USER CP to select forums and automatically that'll affect desktop notifier.. hmm I think it's great idea :-D

thanks!

well unlike maximum plug-and-play type mods, vbulletin-xml-rpc-server is pretty advanced level mod. I just opened doors for application developers to build own desktop notifier application for their forum members.

The sample executable is the one which I wrote for my forum members to use. So, you have following options:

1. build your own desktop notifier following DOCUMENTATION or,
2. modify source code of that sample desktop application and then bundle as executable for your members.
