Nice hack. I placed the code in a different place:

Find:<phrase 1="$pmbox[lastvisitdate]" 2="$pmbox[lastvisittime]">$vbphrase[last_visited_x_at_y]</phrase>
which is just below the code in the install instructions.
Add after it:
<br /><if condition="$bbuserinfo['pmunread']">
<a href="http://www.domain.com/forum/private.php?"><img border="0" src="http://www.domain.com/forum/images/misc/newpm.gif" width="22" height="10"></a>
</if>
Note the extra <br /> before the new code.

I would think that could be a killer on server overhead, especially with a bunch of members.if it's set to refresh every 5 minutes, then it won't run on busy forums... only on pages where the user has stopped to read a long thread or something... that's what I was meaning.

Nice one, like it more then my blinking message pm mod. I did change a few things though, since i like my codes clean.

<if condition="$bbuserinfo['pmunread']">
<a href="private.php"><img border="0" src="$stylevar[imgdir_misc]/newpm.gif"></a>
</if>

In stead of a full url to private.php, the last will suffice (dont know if it will also work if you have a portal like vbadvanced, guess ill find out soon). Furthermore the image folder is now dynamic, so that the url will work no matter what style you use at that moment.

Also removed the width and height of the image url since its pretty much useless. An image will always be shown by their original sizes if no width or height is added.

Other then that, nice work. Small and clean, just the way I like it. :)

I absolutely LOVE this hack!
Is there any way to put the blinky right in front of the "Private Messages" line instead of above it?

eeps, n/m, figured it out...
in case anyone else wants to do the same:
<div class="smallfont">
<strong><phrase 1="$bbuserinfo[username]">$vbphrase[welcome_x]</phrase></strong><br />
<phrase 1="$pmbox[lastvisitdate]" 2="$pmbox[lastvisittime]">$vbphrase[last_visited_x_at_y]</phrase>
<br /><if condition="$bbuserinfo['pmunread']">
<a href="http://www.****.com/forums/private.php?"><img border="0" src="http://www.****.comt/forums/images/newpm.gif" width="22" height="10"></a>
</if>
<if condition="$show['pmstats']"><br /><phrase 1="$vbphrase[unread_x_nav_compiled]" 2="$vbphrase[total_x_nav_compiled]" 3="$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[private_messages_nav]</phrase></if>
</div>

I'd add a screenshot, but everytime I try the newpm.gif doesn't show up *shrugs*

Thanks for presenting another option. I think the reason the newpm.gif isn't showing in your attachment is because it's animated but I think it's easy enough to get what you are saying. :)

Mine works...kind of.

I altered the path just a bit so the image went in the images/misc folder and it appears....BUT it wont stop blinking even if I have no new PM's.

Very strange. I'd rather deal with forcing myself to look for new PM's than deal with a constantly blinking pm

ericgtr
29 Mar 2006, 19:50
The following condition will only display it if you have an unread PM. Make sure you have the if statements in your template surrounding your altered image path.


<if condition="$bbuserinfo['pmunread']">

yes there is... In the template (NAVBAR, i believe it is) make your code for the 'welcome' section as follows (adjusting the url in green below to path you would use:
<div class="smallfont">
<strong><phrase 1="$bbuserinfo[username]">$vbphrase[welcome_x]</phrase></strong><br />
<phrase 1="$pmbox[lastvisitdate]" 2="$pmbox[lastvisittime]">$vbphrase[last_visited_x_at_y]</phrase>

Hello Everyone,

I totally am with you on this issue. Same here, I am using Mozilla Firefox and rarely does the blinking envelope show up. It works great in I.E. but firefox is a problem.

Has anyone been able to come up with a fix?

The code looks fine.

I can not open the image with the link provided.

Is the url correct?

Also you may want to use this. I move the <br /> that was after <strong> at the top and place it at the bottom. This will place the image next to the username. Just makes the style look better.

<strong><phrase 1="$bbuserinfo[username]">$vbphrase[welcome_x]</phrase></strong> <br /> Move this to the bottom

This may be a strange question, but could you tell me what code i should use if i want to have a different image there instead of the flashing envelope when i dont have any new pm's.

I.e

<if condition="$bbuserinfo['pmread']">
<a href="http://www.yoursite.com/board/private.php?"><img border="0" src="http://www.yoursite.com/images/oldpm.gif" width="22" height="10"></a>

I just did something similar for a board I help admin.

Find:
<strong><phrase 1="$bbuserinfo[username]">$vbphrase[welcome_x]</phrase></strong><br />

Replace with:

<strong><phrase 1="$bbuserinfo[username]">$vbphrase[welcome_x]</phrase></strong>&nbsp;&nbsp;<if condition="$bbuserinfo['pmunread']">
<a href="private.php"><img border="0" src="images/pn_inboxnew.gif" width="16" height="11"></a>
<else />
<a href="private.php"><img border="0" src="images/pn_inbox.gif" width="16" height="11"></a>
</if><br />

I've attached the images I'm using too, as well as a screenshot. :)

CMPS v2.2.1 and vBulletin 3.6.5 - I used this on the welcome block on portal (Which is what my forum uses) Took me a minute to figure out where to put the code (since it's different from the forum's welcome block) but I got it and it works perfectly... If that doesn't get their attention (or mine *blush*) I don't know what will =0) Thanks a Bunch! Always -Bree

yeah, i noticed it too the one he shared i guess has a limited continuous loop in place thus it only flashes for about 5-10mins [never really checked on the actual time]

here is one that will flash continuously until the # unread PM's ≠ 0

tnx again to ericgtr. :)

btw, the red in it fits in quite nicely on a Kartel style backround.

yes, it only shows if the person has an unread PM. I think you can test it by pm'ing yourself...

Installed

Also put mine in another location too.

Find in FORUMHOME
<if condition="$show['pmstats']">
<phrase 1="$vbphrase[unread_x_nav_compiled]" 2="$vbphrase[total_x_nav_compiled]" 3="$session[sessionurl_q]">
<a href="private.php">Private Messages</a>

Then add the new code as listed in the .txt file downloaded. This will put it on your forum home page assuming you have a similiar setup as mine.

Tried to install, but it just wouldn't work on 3.7.3. Unfortunate.

also just FYI ..check your default theme that vbulletin comes with ..if it shows up there then it is just your other theme having issue and you can move it where you dont want to cause an issue
