I own [url removed, login to view] and it's growing steadily but users are complaining that when they get a comment, it doesn't show up on their home page. Other things (like a new message,group invitation) work fine.
So all I need is, a notification on their home page, that shows they have <#> new comments, and when they click it, they get taken to their comment page.
The site uses SocialEngine, which uses Smarty.
This isn't a terribly hard job, I've used PHP before, but Smarty confuses me slightly. I don't have a HUGE budget being a student.
Any sympathy gladly appreciated! xD
