#6316 closed enhancement (maybelater)

inconsistent notification total/notification counts in user nav

Component: Core Keywords: trac-tidy-2018


The numbers next to tabs are for total counts.

All Members (456) My Groups (24)

The mentions tabs is a notification and does not follow this. Seems like bad UX. AKA one of these is not like the other.

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Under Consideration

This really should be either for notifications or counts, but never both.

I've never liked the counts as prominent as they are. Maybe we come up with a filterable function to allow toggling it, so a new experience can be opt-in?

  • Milestone changed from Under Consideration to Future Release
  • Summary changed from @ mention activity menu has bad UX to inconsistent notification total/notification counts in user nav

Agree that it would be nice to have these consistent. My feeling is showing counts here is better.

We're closing this ticket because it has not received any contribution or comments for at least two years. We have decided that it is better to close tickets that are good ideas, which have not gotten (or are unlikely to get) contributions, rather than keep things open indefinitely. This will help us share a more realistic roadmap for BuddyPress with you.

Everyone very much appreciates the time and effort that you spent sharing your idea with us. On behalf of the entire BuddyPress team, thank you.

If you feel strongly that this enhancement should still be added to BuddyPress, and you are able to contribute effort towards it, we encourage you to re-open the ticket, or start a discussion about it in our Slack channel. Please consider that time has proven that good ideas without contributions do not get built.
