This cool little mod will simply enhance and add some fun to your Private Message alert and adds a little flash animation to the bottom right corner of your board. The flash mail box can then be clicked and will redirect to your private message box. Animation is based on forum home page but can easily be added to display on any page required or indeed every page and will dissapear when mailbox is read.

Added new MSN Style Pop up alert box

There are three animations you can use. including msn style pop up alert box

If anyone has a different path and needs this altering in the swf and fla please post and i will arrange this asap - thanks

Thanks :)

You have set wrong path to the swf file :)

path is forum/private.php if you use different path is not possible to access the private.php

And there is no .fla

Is this hack negative for the performance?

basilrath 03 Apr 2010 18:45

load the swf as you wish

<!-- mail -->
<vb:if condition="$bbuserinfo[pmunread]">
<a style="display:scroll;position:fixed;bottom:-40px;right:-20px;" title="Click Here - new message!">
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
data="/path-to-your/you-got-mail.swf"
width="150" height="250">
<param name="movie" value="/path-to-your/you-got-mail.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high"/>
<param name="wmode" value="transparent"/>
</object>
</vb:if>
<!-- end of mail -->

aslong as it loads to forumhome - the fla is edited to /forum/private.php so it gets the url from that

you changed the red paths to suit your swf file ? yes

That will place the swf on the forumhome page. you can change the position via the green code

<!-- mail -->
<vb:if condition="$bbuserinfo[pmunread]">
<a style="display:scroll;position:fixed;bottom:-40px;right:-20px; " title="Click Here - new message!">
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
data="/path-to-your/you-got-mail.swf"
width="150" height="250">
<param name="movie" value="/path-to-your/you-got-mail.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high"/>
<param name="wmode" value="transparent"/>
</object>
</vb:if>
<!-- end of mail -->

if the url linking from the swf needs changing you can do it via the fla attatched or pm me ill change it for you

it is currently set assuming your board is

www.yoursite.com/forum/private.php

buiquockhanh 04 Apr 2010 10:11

basilrath 04 Apr 2010 10:17
