Simple hack made for a friend of mine.

Quite simply adds a gradient instead of the boring solid colours used on the PM Inbox Status.


Version 2.0:
[F] Changed code to use "$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]" instead of absoloute URL's (thanks to jgommel)


Version 1.0:
Inital Release



Installation:

1) Upload attached "images" folder to your forums "images" folder.

2)

In pm_messagelist find:

==================================

<if condition="$show['thisfoldertotal']"><td width="$tdwidth[folder]" style="background-color:red; font-size:10px" title="<phrase 1="$totalmessages">$vbphrase[messages_stored_in_folder_x]</phrase>">&nbsp;</td></if>
<if condition="$show['allfolderstotal']"><td width="$tdwidth[total]" style="background-color:orange; font-size:10px" title="<phrase 1="$bbuserinfo[pmtotal]">$vbphrase[total_messages_in_all_folders_x]</phrase>">&nbsp;</td></if>
<if condition="$tdwidth[quota] > 0"><td width="$tdwidth[quota]" style="background-color:green; font-size:10px" title="<phrase 1="$permissions[pmquota]">$vbphrase[maximum_allowed_messages_x]</phrase>">&nbsp;</td></if>

==================================

and replace with:

==================================

<if condition="$show['thisfoldertotal']"><td width="$tdwidth[folder]" background="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/pm_red.gif" font-size:10px" title="<phrase 1="$totalmessages">$vbphrase[messages_stored_in_folder_x]</phrase>">&nbsp;</td></if>
<if condition="$show['allfolderstotal']"><td width="$tdwidth[total]" background="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/pm_orange.gif" font-size:10px" title="<phrase 1="$bbuserinfo[pmtotal]">$vbphrase[total_messages_in_all_folders_x]</phrase>">&nbsp;</td></if>
<if condition="$tdwidth[quota] > 0"><td width="$tdwidth[quota]" background="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/pm_green.gif" font-size:10px" title="<phrase 1="$permissions[pmquota]">$vbphrase[maximum_allowed_messages_x]</phrase>">&nbsp;</td></if>

==================================

3) Save and Enjoy :)

Good idea! I just made one minor change (staying with traditional vb coding)...

I replaced all (3) image paths with
background="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/pm_red.gif"
background="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/pm_orange.gif"
background="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/pm_green.gif"

<if condition="$show['thisfoldertotal']"><td width="$tdwidth[folder]" background="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/pm_red.gif" font-size:10px" title="<phrase 1="$totalmessages">$vbphrase[messages_stored_in_folder_x]</phrase>">&nbsp;</td></if>
<if condition="$show['allfolderstotal']"><td width="$tdwidth[total]" background="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/pm_orange.gif" font-size:10px" title="<phrase 1="$bbuserinfo[pmtotal]">$vbphrase[total_messages_in_all_folders_x]</phrase>">&nbsp;</td></if>
<if condition="$tdwidth[quota] > 0"><td width="$tdwidth[quota]" background="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/pm_green.gif" font-size:10px" title="<phrase 1="$permissions[pmquota]">$vbphrase[maximum_allowed_messages_x]</phrase>">&nbsp;</td></if>

hmm.... I'm sorry but I don't see why this is in the Hack section as it's simply a minor template modification. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice idea and looks good but I don't see why this justifies being in the hack section :/

Yes, I can tell. Not only did you post in the wrong section but you managed to post a template modification claiming it as a hack and obtaining coder status. I respect other coders for their time and effort that they put into their modifications to help make this forum software even better than it is. What you're doing is taking credit for something that you didn't earn since this is a small edit and doesn't justify your coder status in any way, shape, or form.

That's my opinion. You don't have to like it, just accept it. Don't bother coming up with any more intelligent replies to my comment as this will be the last thing I say in this thread.

Me too... they are simple and easy to install, and add up to make our forums look nicer. It's not always the execution, but rather the IDEA ITSELF that is appreciated. Thanks for sharing, Red Spider!

/me happily and easily installs another great little mod. :)

If only the community users of our sites knew how much their webmasters do to make things nice for them, from the big nasty install hacks to the little nice additions like this.
