Hi guys,

This mod/hack started off as a PM notification but after some requests i've extended it for all notifications and thrown in some jQuery just to make things smooth and look good

Anyway on to the mod itself, when a user recieves a notification a red bar will show at the top of the forum telling the user they have a notification and there is a clickable link which will extend the red box using jQuery giving the user links to specific notifications. 2 Demo gif's i've made here to help people understand, the actual jQuery animation isn't shown in the gif's but i've made it clear what it does,

DEMO 1 - Notification Alert (Extension Closed)
DEMO 2 - Notification Alert (Extension Open)

(Ignore the image movement, just an un-even cut lol)

=|= Install =|=

- Download and unzip attached file.
- Upload contents of the UPLOAD folder to the forum root.

Open Template - header

Add at Top -

I have VB 4.1.3 also, but pop ups are there (you see only once pop up per message)
Will check my settings and at, maybe its cause of some settings, there is 1000 settings withing VB and maybe I am missing something. Thanks

Goxy, i've had a look around my templates, if you cannot find the setting then try the following:

Open template - Private Message Templates -> pm_popup_script

Delete content of template and save. Like i said i think it must be an option as i don't get it at all.

Hi again

Well I found how to take care about mentioned problem with pop up message, it was in VB options
AdminCP > Settings > Options > User Registration Options > Default Registration Options
AdminCP > Maintenance > Execute SQL Query

...and select the 'No - Pop up a Notification Box When a Private Message is Received' from the dropdown and press 'Continue'.

As VB support suggested and it worked for me

But then another problem was found, with your notification code I had problem with "Radio and TV Player 4.x"mod which is one of my favourite
Problem was that within radio and station pages I could not choose any stations or whatever, think its releted to JS....but its beyond me how to resolve that
I love your way of notification but with jQuery its making trouble for mods like one I mentioned

I know that this is not part of this mod, but together with this mod default pop up window is unnecessary
then turn it off profile.php?do=editoptions

What's wrong with it, can you provide more info or a screenshot as i am not running 4.1.5

I will be releasing this as a product shortly to avoid manual template changes, it will work a bit different and be in a different location but will do the same job. I'll post in here when it's done.
