LK Version 2.1.0

This is a small extension to add a little bubble atop the admin panel button. It displays the number of items in the queue, as denote by power:

Manage Masterlist (manage_characters)

  • Design Update Request queue
  • MYO Design Update Request queue
  • Transfer request queue (if enabled in site settings)
  • Trade request queue (if enabled in site settings)

Manage Submissions (manage_submissions)

  • Claims queue
  • Prompt submission queue
  • Gallery submissions (where "collaborators are approved")

Manage Reports (manage_reports)

  • Unassigned Reports
  • Reports assigned to me

The code creates a function within the User model and edits some code in the _nav.blade.php file. These are the only edits and therefore it shouldn't conflict with any other extensions.


Pull the branch and merge it into your own branch. It may yell at you about conflicts, especially if you have edited the navigation bar. All that's important in the _nav blade is this:

114 @if(Auth::user()->isStaff)
115    <li class="nav-item d-flex">
116      <a class="nav-link position-relative display-inline-block" href="{{ url('admin') }}"><i class="fas fa-crown"></i>
117        @if (Auth::user()->hasAdminNotification(Auth::user()))
118          <span class="position-absolute rounded-circle bg-danger text-light" style="top: -2px; right: -5px; padding: 1px 6px 1px 6px; font-weight:bold; font-size: 0.8em; box-shadow: 1px 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,.25);">
119            {{ Auth::user()->hasAdminNotification(Auth::user()) }}
120          </span>
121      @endif
122      </a>
123    </li>
124  @endif


If you wish you edit the visuals of the bubble, look for the span inside the nested if statement in the chunk of code above. I left most of the style as inline as to not clog up css files. I personally prefer bg-danger as it is most noticeable, but you may prefer to make it something different.

In order to add additional notifications to the list, you will need to edit the "hasAdminNotification" function within app\Models\User.php. This is important if you have other extensions which add things to the Admin queue, like Gallery Submissions.
