PM Popup Box: Modify to open in new window...

Post by Zhuge Kongming » Mon Nov 11, 2002 7:40 am

Hi all, I have had multiple requests to modify the Private Message notification popup box to open the inbox in a new window (as opposed to the main window) by default. I think it is a good change myself, so I am working on it now.

I am looking in privmsgs_popup.tpl right now and I am not finding what I want. It includes the simple {L_MESSAGE} where the “Click Here to visit your Inbox” would be, and the header includes the JavaScript:

Code: Select all

function jump_to_inbox()
{
	opener.document.location.href = "{U_PRIVATEMSGS}";
	window.close();
}
When the PHP has done its job and the viewer gets the popup {L_MESSAGE} changes to:

Code: Select all

Click <a href="privmsg.php?folder=inbox" onClick="jump_to_inbox();return false;" target="_new">Here</a> to visit your Inbox
I would like to edit that output, or edit the JavaScript to cause the target to be an all new window. What do you suggest I edit for this (JavaScript or HTML) and in what file?

I am awesome with HTML and CSS, but Not exactly a JavaScript/PHP master.

Thank you in advance, and I hope this is the right forum.

find this line in privmsg.php

Code: Select all

$l_new_message .= '<br /><br />' . sprintf($lang['Click_view_privmsg'], '<a href="' . append_sid("privmsg.".$phpEx."?folder=inbox") . '" onClick="jump_to_inbox();return false;" target="_new">', '</a>');

Finally! I have found this, I just don't understand it. A few of the users at my board have asked about this. Instead of it opening in the main window, open in a new window or the pop-up window itself.

Can somebody help me, please?
