FB like notification for buddypress


The plugin repeatedly checks for new notifications for the loggedin user and if any new notification is found, it does 2 things:

1) Updates the browser window title( e.g: ‘members|’ becomes ‘(2) members|’ ) and blinks/switches repeatedly between the old and new title

2) Updates the notification menu:

 – adds new notification(if any) items to the list

 – updates the existing ones(if any). E.g: from ‘You have 1 new message’ to ‘You have 2 new messages’


**Note: **The second (updating notification menu) has been developed according to the markup of default buddybar/wp-admin bar, so if your theme doesn’t have one, or have a custom notification list, it wont work.



Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the Plugin from Plugins page.
