With Sound Board you can:
Set a new default notification sound for your community!
Allow members to customize their notification sound!
Administrators can limit this ability to specific member groups.
Choosing only the guest user group will force everyone on to your new default customization sound.
Allow members' custom notification sounds to be playable on member profile pages.
Disable the public display for your more naughty members and their naughty notification sounds...
NOTE: Version 4 is for Invision Community 4.4.5 or higher. It may work with earlier versions but I haven't and will not test it. Caviar Empty as they say...
The playing of the notification sound flows as follows:
1) If a member has a custom sound, and has group permissions to have a custom sound, that sound will play for them when they get a notification.
2) If not (member has no custom sound specified and/or no group permissions), and you have set a new default notification sound in the Sound Board ACP settings, that will play instead.
3) Otherwise, it will fall back to the usual IPS default notification sound.
Members with group permissions to have a custom notification sound have a menu option right in the usermenu drop down. Drag and drop MP3, WAV, OGG files and that's all that's needed.
If you choose, you can toggle on the public display of a member's notification sound on the member's profile page. An HTML5 audio player holds the sound giving any visitor to the page the ability to hear it. This is a simple social feature, nothing more; a conversation starter or something along those lines. Naturally nothing will display unless the member is in a group that has permissions to have these custom sounds, and they actually have set one.
Does a member have a notification sound that is not quite up to your community standards but you still want people to have their notification sound on their profile pages? Go to the problem member's entry in the ACP and toggle this feature off for this member. They still get to use their custom notification sound, but your community won't be exposed to it.
MP3, WAV, OGG. I have a 5 meg limit on file size as well - no real reason other than it seems reasonable. Can be removed if needed.
Install app, find it under the new All Astronauts app tab in the ACP, configure settings, enjoy!
This only changes the notification sounds that are sent out. It does nothing with the where/why/how of how notifications are generated. CIC users may need to be patient post install and after members add a custom notification sound as the CIC system takes a few minutes to duplicate/cache/CDN the sound file. Please. please. please be patient. CIC is notorious for cache delays affecting acp settings changes and the like.
Hey it says "Choosing only the guest user group will force everyone on to your new default customization sound." How does that work even?
Guests are not members and do not receive notifications. If you select that group, and only that group, and also have a new default sound set, all of your members, admins, etc. will pull the new default you set without the ability to set their own personal defaults.
So that means I do that and I have a new community wide default notification sound that everyone has to use?
$12 to get, $5/6 months. Renews are mainly a tip jar and to protect myself if IPS changes force me to work this over again. And it's already happened with 4.3 (twice already!)
Support available for the time being in the IPS Marketplace topic. PMs are ok but the topic is far better. Keep in mind most devs here have other lives - we often will read a PM but we may not actually reply for quite some time - please be patient. You are allowed to use this, after purchasing a license and downloading this from the IPS Marketplace, on one live site and any test/dev sites you have. Additional live sites require additional license purchases. Renewals (per purchase) entitle you to updated versions and ongoing support. Skip a renew if you don't need a new version or support. Support is limited to the default IPS theme and is for IPS license holders current on the application/plugin renewals (with a generous grace period). I'll give a hand, time permitting, to help you figure out what is wrong with your custom theme if there is a conflict but fixes in those cases will need to be made by your theme provider.
