Hi, I'm using BBLite and there isn't any type of notification other than the pop-up. Would someone please make a flashing button for me?

Thanks in advance!

I tried following the instructions on pg. 1 of this post, but the BBLite skin doesn't have the same html wording as the AshGrunge.

Here's what I have:

Code: Select all

<a href="{U_PRIVATEMSGS}" class="mainmenu"><IMG SRC="templates/BBLite/images/icon_mini_message.gif"  border="0" alt="{PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO}" hspace="3" />P.M.
Can someone tell me where I should put icon_mini_messageON.gif?

Thanks!

I'm using the Cobalt 2.0 template and there is quite a bit of extra stuff on there from the subSilver template in the overall_header.tpl file. Can somebody decipher what parts I should replace?

Code: Select all

#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------
#
						<td height="25" align="center" valign="top" nowrap="nowrap"><span class="mainmenu">&nbsp;<a href="{U_PROFILE}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_profile.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="{L_PROFILE}" hspace="3" />{L_PROFILE}</a>&nbsp; &nbsp;<a href="{U_PRIVATEMSGS}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_message.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="{PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO}" hspace="3" />{PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO}</a>&nbsp; &nbsp;<a href="{U_LOGIN_LOGOUT}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_login.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="{L_LOGIN_LOGOUT}" hspace="3" />{L_LOGIN_LOGOUT}</a>&nbsp;</span></td>

#
#-----[ IN-LINE FIND ]------------------------------------------
#
<img src="templates/subSilver/images/icon_mini_message.gif" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="{PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO}" hspace="3" />{PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO}

#
#-----[ IN-LINE REPLACE WITH ]------------------------------------------
#
<img src="{PRIVMSG_IMG}" width="12" height="13" border="0" alt="{PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO}" hspace="3" />{PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO_UNREAD}
In Cobalt that section is:

Code: Select all

<table border="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td class="mainmenu"><a href="{U_PROFILE}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/Cobalt/images/icon_mini_profile.gif" width="22" height="22" border="0" alt="{L_PROFILE}" /></a></td><td class="mainmenu" style="padding-right: 7px"><a href="{U_PROFILE}" class="mainmenu">{L_PROFILE}</a></td></tr></table>
											</td>
											<td align="center" class="mainmenu" valign="middle" nowrap class="mainmenu">											
												<table border="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td class="mainmenu"><a href="{U_PRIVATEMSGS}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/Cobalt/images/icon_mini_message.gif" width="22" height="22" border="0" alt="{PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO}" /></a></td><td class="mainmenu" style="padding-right: 7px"><a href="{U_PRIVATEMSGS}" class="mainmenu">{PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO}</a></td></tr></table></a>
											</td>
											<td align="center" class="mainmenu" valign="middle" nowrap class="mainmenu">
												<table border="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td class="mainmenu"><a href="{U_LOGIN_LOGOUT}" class="mainmenu"><img src="templates/Cobalt/images/icon_mini_login.gif" width="22" height="22" border="0" alt="{L_LOGIN_LOGOUT}" /></a></td><td class="mainmenu" style="padding-right: 7px"><a href="{U_LOGIN_LOGOUT}" class="mainmenu">{L_LOGIN_LOGOUT}</a></td></tr></table></a>
Its spaced out a lil more and has some extra things in there. I'd very much appreciate if somebody could sort this out for me. Sorry, this is very new to me.

Just replace templates/Cobalt/images/icon_mini_message.gif with {PRIVMSG_IMG}
and {PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO} with {PRIVATE_MESSAGE_INFO_UNREAD}

Okay works great except that it doesn't mention unread messages. What do you suppose I missed? I thought added everything correctly. Also I added,

Code: Select all

$l_privmsgs_text_unread = ( $userdata['user_new_privmsg'] ) ? $l_privmsgs_text : $l_privmsgs_text_unread;
as well. Any thoughts?

Very very cool mod though. My members love it!

Yes. If you want it to flash when you have unread messages just set...

$images['pm_unread_msg'] = $images['pm_new_msg'];
