Solved Change colour of "Message" button on Nav bar when "New Message" arrives.

Post by The Lone Ranger on October 6th 2012, 11:53 pm

Hi guys, my members are finding it difficult to see when they have a new PM message. (Not all of them can set their profiles to "display pop-up message" as they are not sure how to let pop-ups through their anti-virus software for our forum). Is there any code that can be added to my CSS to change the colour of the "New Message" to the same sort of orange as my forum?

Thanks in advance.

Since you have icons as your navbar, you can create a secondary icon for when new messages are in.

Say you have navbar that says INBOX
you can do this like mine




If this is an option you can have a GFX artist get ya something

No, I would like this button on the Navbar to change to orange when a new message arrives. The button changes to this: when a new PM arrives. My members don't notice it easily. I would normally just copy the new button and adjust it in paint but I don't have any images to alter. When I go into AP>DISPLAY>PICS MANAGEMENT>GENERAL/EXPLORE and scroll down to "private messages" and "new private messages", there are no images associated with these buttons.

Yes, I know that NLG, but as explained above, I don't have any images for this button. confused If it can't be done it's no big deal.

Find:
Code:
#i_icon_mini_new_message

And replace:
Code:
    background: url("http://i64.servimg.com/u/f64/13/24/64/14/rere_110.png") no-repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;

With:
Code:

Thanks rideem3, that's a lot better. Please mark as solved and close. Very good
