I need a notification system on my website so that users are notified when somebody replies to their comments. (Maybe later we'll add more to it, but we'll begin with comments).
We can add a little button on the website, and when people click on it, they can their last 5 notifications, with a pagination at the bottom of the notification drop down menu, so they can check the 5 previous notifications etc.
When there would be new notifications, they would be at the top, and the notification icon would need to display a red circle with the number of new notifications inside. When you click on the notification icon, you will see the notifications and when you click on a new one, it will bring you directly to the page where the comment is on. The number in the red circle will go down by 1, every time you view a new notification.
Look at the pictore on [url removed, login to view] to have an idea of the notification icon and drop down. We don't have to put a picture however, and the title of the notifications can be the first few words of the reply you received.
