[CDB] Favicon Notifications

Post by kasimi »

Extension Name: Favicon Notifications (requires at least phpBB 3.1.0)

Author: kasimi

Description: This extension adds a red badge on top on the favicon with the number of unread notifications by using the favico.js library. This is useful especially when the tab is pinned:

Image

If there are no unread notifications, no badge is displayed. It works with every favicon.
There is no configuration: you enable the extension and you're done.

Browser compatibility:
  • Chrome: working
  • Firefox: working
  • IE 11: not working
  • Edge: not tested
  • Safari: not tested
  • Opera: not tested
Note: This extension does not add a favicon to your style. It only works if you already have a favicon.

Download v1.0.0: https://github.com/kasimi/phpbb-ext-fav ... master.zip

Repository: https://github.com/kasimi/phpbb-ext-fav ... ifications

Will this work out of the box with favicons located in the forum root directory?

The JS library this extension is using expects to find a <link> tag inside your <head> section with the rel attribute set to icon. It doesn't matter where the icon is located on your server.

Example:

Code: Select all

<link rel="icon" href="./favicon.ico" />

My favicon is an SVG and the rel is "shortcut icon" - would it be difficult to make this work anyway?

As long as icon is one of the <link>'s rel values the library can find the element so that's not a problem. Whether it works with SVG I don't know and I can't find any information about it. Give it a try and let us know. :)
