By default BuddyPress shows you notifications on top admin bar. In this lesson we will be showing how to notify your website members about new private messages using notification text: “You have a new message.” 

You Have a New (BuddyPress) Message is the new BuddyPress plugin that provides you a shortcode and widget for displaying notifications about new messages any user gets on your community website.

Start by installing ‘You Have a New (BuddyPress) Message’ plugin in BuddyPress

Once the plugin is activated, visit your admin area dashboard Appearance -> Widgets screen to setup the widget or use shortcode [you-have-a-new-message] anywhere to display new message notice to logged in users of your website.

The notice when clicked links to user’s inbox as a convenient and omnipresent shortcut.
