Private message pop up when signing in

Post by mb007inc »

Does anyone know how to get a popup or very obvious sign that will alert you to having new Private message when you sign in.

Check your 'user control panel' it is a simple switch set by each user.

In your User Control Panel, in Board prefs, set "Pop up window on new private message: " to Yes.

You would have to modify includes/functions_user.php:

Find

Code: Select all

		'user_options'		=> 895,
replace with

Code: Select all

		'user_options'		=> 1919,

Just remember that not everyone likes it, hence the option.

You are rambling.

Please explain what you have done, and what results you are seeing.

Hello! Sorry for stealing the thread but if I were to change this would the user still have the option to change it back and wouldn't their browser have to be set to accept pop ups from my site to work??

Thanks!
Dave
