Floating notice box in forumhome.

Released: 23 Nov 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 0
Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code Translations  

This "Mod" will allow you to have a floating notice box in your Forumhome, however it can easily be adapted to show wherever you like!

The original javascript for the float and the box are from here http://www.jtricks.com/javascript/na.../floating.html all the information here does is help you understand where to put the code and how to use it etc

Go to AdminCp>Style Manager>YOUR STYLE>Header and underneath
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

add this (currently it is set to only show to unregistered users)
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Now go to Headinclude and right at the very bottom add
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

the reason for capturing the SCRIPT and the USERGROUP in both places is to prevent a page script error (denoted by a little yellow triangle at the bottom left of your browser)

I used a little css to jazz mine up, again go to your style>Main CSS and in the additional CSS Definitions add this

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

now in your headinclude change this
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

for this
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And thats it, you should now be able to see the floating box with your message when you aren't logged in at your forumhome.

I'm not a coder but will help as much as i can with problems on this!

nice idea. This sounds like a good idea for an ad banner. Any screenshots?

Thumbs up

Great work Simon I was going to suggest that you do this, believe it or not One question before I install it, which I think I know the answer to but I want to check first, does it take the colour from whatever your standard notice background is, ie default, or do you adjust it to your own preference?

If you follow the instructions given and do the CSS part you can choose to have the floating box whatever colour you desire, you can match it to your background, notices.....etc its just a matter of changing the colour in the css.
