Simple Unread PM/etc Notification
Tested with vBulletin 3.0.x, 3.5.x, 3.6.x, 3.7.x

Very easy modification. Although it isn't as fancy as some, this template modification is meant for those that just want a simple and attractive notification that is... well... noticeable. It should be able to easily integrate into your design as well as easy to install.

I have a User CP Modification coming in the next month or so, which is of course more complex than this modification.

Release (final 1.0.0): Marked as New
+ Displays only if the Member has a Unread PM
+ Tell the Member how many pms are unread.
+ Adds "s" if more than one PM is unread.
+ Provides link to private.php for fast access.
+ Is displayed (if active) on virtually every forum page.

Upcoming Features: Marked as New
+ Display New Friend Requests
+ Display New Visitor Messages

Instructions/Installation: Very Easy

In the Style Manager, open the template "navbar" and find the following code:
<!-- / nav buttons bar -->

<br />
Add this code directly below:
<!-- PM Notification -->
<if condition="$bbuserinfo[pmunread]">
<table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" align="center">
<tr>
<td class="thead"><a href="private.php"><div style="text-decoration:none;">You currently have $bbuserinfo[pmunread] Unread Private Message<if condition="$bbuserinfo[pmunread] >= 2">s</if>! Click Here!</div></a></td>
</tr>
</table>
<br />
</if>
<!-- / PM Notification -->
------------------------------------
And then Save, as you're done! Enjoy the the simple notifier!

"Otikeu" is on an abandoned license and I have taken over this modification. Please click "Install" to be notified when the next versions are available.

Simple, eloquent and to the point.

Thankyou very much.

I do not use navbar in my template, my navigation buttons are inside my header, so I put it in the end of the header template.

You can place the code wherever you want the notification to appear. The only reason I specifically say "navbar" is because it will run on all pages, but it should work in header and other templates.

Yep, should be compatible with 3.0.x-3.7.x versions :)

Regards Jason :)
I've yet to test it in 3.7 beta 3, but it should work just fine as there shouldn't be any differences in what this modification uses from the two betas. :)

Can you add "New Reputation Received" notification that will take you to your profile to read it when clicked? That will make this even better.

I plan to have it become more than just PM notifications in the upcoming version. Just trying to find a lightweight yet useful way to go about this.

This will be the upcoming version, where it is just "Notifications" in general, and not just PMs.

Glad you do. :)

Coolest thing would be to get a notification of group posts you are a member of, too!

The next version will support notifications, but might still be able to work with older versions of vBulletin (not just 3.7). If not, there will be two versions.

Awesome thanks a lot! Works great on 3.6.8
You're welcome :)

Is there anyway to get this to work on a non vb page?

There could be a way through more work, but if you can get vBulletin integrated with your site enough ot check global information for the user, then yes, you could.

An easy way to do this would be to upload the global.php from the root and all files in /includes/ to your website. Then, include() the global.php onto any page you want to use this mod with.

You may have to replace the files on every upgrade, however.

--------

To everyone else, be sure to click "Install" or you may miss out on the next version!!

Sorry for the delay everyone, but you should see the new version within the next 24 hours if all goes right :D

I just have to see how compatibility works out. It should work out fine, but I won't know until some further testing. I'm sure it will, but ya :P

Also, if all is cool, then I might make the new version a product/plugin :D Thanks everyone for installing and do mark install if you're using the mod to be notified of the next one as well as future updates! :)

Sorry for the wait people, it should be here soon. So keep this mod as marked installed!

And the next version will be compatible with all versions of vBulletin that the original was/is (v3.0-3.7).

Tried this, but it does not work swell.

I placed the code in header since my custom style has
<!-- / nav buttons bar --> there

I placed it right below too.

As you can see, the table is layed over the main nav menu and adds this
huge purple table cell below it

It would be great if it adds lines if there is more than 1 notification. In addition too that have images for each one that goes before the text.

Great mod, but can we get a little bit of 3.7 into it.

Thanks

Possible that you can add New Personal Message notification as well?
