What does it?:
This will change the Navbar where the Notifications Box is to a different Background Image when a user has a unread private message, unread profile message, profile visitor message awaiting approval, incoming friends request, requests to join users social group or an invitation to join social groups.

Install Instructions:

upload newnotifications.gif image to your images/misc folder

import product-notificationsbg.xml file to your product manager.

that's all it.. have fun :D

Not sure if it was just my template being custom but...

I had to change


$_find = '<td class=\"alt1\" nowrap=\"nowrap\">';


to

$_find = '<td class=\"alt2\" nowrap=\"nowrap\">';

Thanks!

Almost the same except that I can now change the background image more easily without customizing CSS (I'm not a coder). Both work fine, though!

What I would really like, now, is to flash the words "Your Notifications:" in red also. Is that possible anyone???

You can do the same thing wth nix's hack. ;)

I agree except that this one is much easier for the average person (like me) that have basically no CSS coding skills. I can change the background image much easier.

But I used nix's hack and it worked flawlessly.

try this Admincp -> Languages & Phrases - > Search in Phrases -> search Your Notifications phrase and edit first finded phrase

replace it with

<font color="red"><b>Your Notifications</b></font>

your result: https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/

While this is good, isn't it just best to use a simple template edit?

I simply used :

<if condition="$show['notifications']">
<div><span id="notifications"><a href="usercp.php$session[sessionurl_q]"><font
style="background-color: #FFFF00">$vbphrase[your_notifications]:</a> <strong>$notifications_total</strong></span></div>

Note the <font
style="background-color: #FFFF00">

this would only change the background color of Your Notifications: 1 phrase and not the whole notifications box !!

Very nice :)

Does anybody have an image just like the one that was provided, but one that just smoothly blinks a vibrant red?
Or does anybody know how to create one?

Thanks in advance :D

Can you fix this?

I have been looking for something similar, but what it would do is change the forum's background. For example, this site has the blue gradient background, but if I had a new PM it would be tinted red.

I think this would be a simple, but very effective way of making users aware of a new PM. I have limited coding knowledge, but if the developer of this mod, or anyone else wants to give this idea a shot let me know what you come up with.

EagleNick

Nice mod, works great for me. However, I realized that I no longer receive a popup notification when I have a new PM. The setting is still enabled in my UserCP and I am suspicious that it is this hack that's causing this malfunction.
Any tips?

Love this mod! Made my own image to match my forum theme. Was looking for the blinking envelope, but couldn't find one with code current enough to work on my 3.7.3. Or maybe I was doing those wrong. I don't know. I DO know this works and I love it! Thanks so much.

bjkinzluvr
15 Nov 2008, 14:43
Yeah, I no longer have the pop up window either, which I don't mind because I was going to disable it with the new background notificaiton working so well. But it is a little unnerving that it stopped working without me turning it off.
