This feature is now built into the forum. You can adjust it in your notification settings.

Forum Notifier alerts you when it sees a new post of a user quoting you on a supported forum. The supported forums are polled once a minute, meaning you should receive a notification within a minute of the post.

Forums currently supported:
  • RootzWiki
There are 3 ways to get alerted:
  1. Twitter @Mention
  2. Email
  3. A PM on the forum
  4. ??? open to suggestions
* Here's an example of it alerting me of a new quote: http://twitter.com/#...;17548548325377

* If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear them.

* If you are not receiving email notifications, be sure to check your spam folder.

Just fixed a couple bugs.

One of them caused it to notify some users about a quote that they had already been notified about. It was saving the entire link, & the &s=blahblah of the link changes ever so often I guess. I changed this, & now it just remembers the post number. This should fix that bug. (Sorry about that to the people it happened to last night/this morning)

The other one, if an older thread was bumped up & you were quoted on the last page & had never been notified, it would alert you. I changed this so it only alerts you if you've never been notified & the post was posted that day.

Edit: Fixed another bug where it wouldn't work with people who have a space in their name.

Sorry guys, doesn't look like I'm going to be able to get it back running tonight(See: http://twitter.com/#!/ForumNotifier/status/93178111985852417). I've been looking into the alternatives for a recent forum posts feed... the "New Forum Posts" feed on http://rootzwiki.com/forum.php doesn't seem to update hardly ever, that I can tell anyway.

http://rootzwiki.com/search.php?do=getnew&contenttype=vBForum_Post is a possible alternative, it requires you to login to view it though... that's something I've never done in a script. I'll have to read a tutorial or two over it tomorrow.

UPDATE: Instead of going to bed I decided to read more into it. The Forum Notifier now logs into RootzWiki & parses http://rootzwiki.com/search.php?do=getnew&contenttype=vBForum_Post This should not only fix the brokeness, but should also speed up the amount of time it takes to alert you. Let me know if you guys see anything strange happening, not to sure how reliable my 5am coding is :tongue3:.

UPDATE2: Also believe I fixed the problem where all emails were going to your spam folders without adding it to a not spam list(for gmail anyway).

Would you guys be interested in getting notifications via forum PM?

Edit: Created a WordPress for this project. http://forumnotifier.wordpress.com/
Edit2: Notifications via forum PM should be working now, to change your notification method just fill out the form again.

Edit3: You can now specify the maximum amount of notifications you want to receive per hour.
