NEW 1.0.3 VERSION (download pm_new_alert_popup103.zip)

GTPrivate Message Alert Popup replaces the javascript private message alert popup. It is similar to the one here on vbulletin.org except that the style is different.

The one supplied here is a standard vBulletin style. Below is a screenshot of how it looks like.

Custom modification brought to you by Joe Velez (aka Princeton vbulletin.org Admin).

Show your support and click Mark As Installed, Nominate For MOTM, or Support Developer.

All you have to do is upload the product via the Plugin system.

I know somebody will end up asking me so ..

If you are having problems:
  • Make sure that your vBulletin Options / Instant Messaging Support - Check for New Private Messages is enabled.
  • Make sure that the receiver of message has Show New Private Message Notification Pop-up checked.
  • Test by sending private message to another user (not yourself).
  • Duplicate alerts in navbar? Remove $pmmessage from navbar template.
  • Prefer to have alert in header template? Manually add $pmmessage to the bottom of your header template and change $gtpmmessage = true; to $gtpmmessage = false; in "Replace PM Popup" plugin
NOTE: This modifciation works similar to the alert popup. It will only display 1 time.

History:
  • v1.0.3 Fixed quote issue - title with quotes would appear with slashes eg. \"title\"
  • v1.0.3 there's no need to add $pmmessage
  • v1.0.2 Added missing phrases
  • v1.0.1 Added missing template to xml

This modification works similar to the alert popup. It will only display 1 time. The difference is that it does not require javascript.

You can run a test here on vbulletin.org. Just make sure you have the Show New Private Message Notification Pop-up checked.

If it needs instructions, there's room for improvement.
Give users what they actually want, not what they say they want. And whatever you do, don't give them new features just because your competitors have them!

The problem is it only shows up on my CP screen and no other screens. And yes, the CP pop-up box is checked

Great idea for a mod, but I just can't get it to work the way its supposed to.

Thanks.

Same here. Twice, one under another


And if I refresh the page or change to another style and change back, the PM notification box disappear. Is it supposed to show only ONCE ? I haven't even clicked on the box yet.

already displays an image - pm_new.gif ($stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]) ... you can change the image by editing the gtpm_have_new_pm_popup_x_y phrase

Same here. Twice, one under another
if you manually entered $pmmessage in navbar remove it ...

Is it supposed to show only ONCE ?
yes, it should only appear once

seems to work great apart from i see no message, i get the box under the navbar everything seems good, i see the icon then colon : then nothing? - thats on my vBadvanced page... haven't tried anywhere else...WAIT, it works on forumhome, but not on my vBadvanced front page which is my sites main starting point... any global variables to add perhaps to my vbadvanced settings?

Also... would it be possible to include some styeling? like an option to colour the bar to highlight a new message or perhaps an option to show more information like time/date or whatever...pretty cool already though cheers
