Not Using the AccessAlly Theme?

Here’s the format you’ll use to add a notification bell with preview to your WordPress theme.

From our Dev Team: To add the notification bell to other themes requires modifying theme code, adding notification bell HTML elements, and styling it with CSS.

AccessAlly provides the following filters you can use in your custom code:

apply_filters('accessally_theme_notification_count', 0);

  • Description: This filter retrieves the number of CommunityAlly notifications a user has. It can be used to create the notification bubble;
  • Parameter: specific user ID (optional)
  • Return type: Integer

apply_filters('accessally_theme_notification_dropdown_code', '');

  • Description: This filter returns a String containing the code for an unordered list of notification previews.
  • Parameter: no parameters accepted
  • Return type: String – code for an unordered list of notification previews

Notification Preferences

Both site admins and members can choose how they would like to receive notifications – via email, web, or both.
