PM Notification Bar

PM Notification Bar
Originaly created by KahneFan

This is a simple PM notification bar which uses your theme's current style to create a bar alerting members of new PMs. Since this displays within your forum pop-up blockers won't give it trouble.

Attached is a screen shot of the mod in action. I would give a demo, but I'm sure people would keep checking the mail :D


Edit:
Updated to work with 1.1.9 and 1.1.8 versions. For that versions use pm_notification_bar_1.1.x.zip.

If you have some errors, bugs or something, please be kind to post your comment here, and we will try to help...

Very nice mod KahneFan!!! Love the pop-up blockers but hate it when u need the pop-up.  This will prove to be quite handy.

Hmm, guess I have not seen that mod before. TBH, doesn't appear to be a lot of difference. That mod allows you to edit your style in the admin, whereas mine uses styles already being used on your site. Other than that.... probably not much.

I'm not familiar with .rar files. Can you post your regular index.template.php file?

nice mod KF, like the way it fits nicely with my theme although the 90% width is bit overkill (IMO) ive changed it to set px width at 340px


i can't find

Code: [Select]
// Show the navigation tree.
in my custom template....some help please

thnkx

try this - make sure you have a back up tho as this may not work but ive placed it just before where // Show the navigation tree. should be in default theme

I just wanted to make it stand out, but the width is definitely up to the forum owner :D

What difference Pm Informer?

i think the difference being that KF's mod utilises the catbg image and adds the boarder around which blends well with the forum design, where as PM Informer just had a coloured background and no offence to the mod designer - it was very basic looking

my members liked PM Informer but i disliked its design as it didnt blend well with my forum but with my tweek, as is definately up to the forum owner  ;D, looks much better and fits in with my forum design

I don't use 1.1.x, but I could try to look at it. It should be too tough to implement. I just need to know the text strings, the rest is basic HTML.

I don't know what your theme looks like, but the attached should work. Be sure to back up first... although the file attached above is basically a backup :D

It uses the same class as your catbg's. You would need to either change your catbg, or create a whole new class just for the bar.

Or, you could use PM Informer which allows you to adjust the bg color.

Just tried to install this plugin but I get the following error:

"The package you are trying to download or install is either corrupt or not compatible with this version of SMF"

I'm using SMF 1.1.10 with a custom theme.

Anyone know what could be the problem?

The package info XML page just needs to be updated from:
<install for="1.1.8 - 1.1.9">

to
<install for="1.1.8 - 1.1.10">

or
<install for="1.1.x - 1.1.xx">
