Pop-up messages!

Post by Gunhack X on November 15th 2008, 12:28 am

I hope an administrator may look at my suggestion.

Ok, could you please add an option in the AP that allow the admin to active and show a welcome message to all the people who visit the forum for first time. This suggestion can be very useful If you want to tell them the benefits of registration in your forum. e.g. After registration they wouldn't see the ads...". Well, something like that and be able to show a Welcome Message, not the Welcome PM that currently we have, to any user that always log in into the forum. This will be very awesome for me If someone add this.

If this is not possible, could someone please allow admins to add more than 2 Homepage message and add the feature to select If you only want it to show it to guest, users, moderators, admins.

P.S. Sorry for my bad English...

I'd say that you DON'T know that this option exhists already?

You can activate this already from the 'Admin Panel'

Go have a look, you will see where it it's found, it's easy enough to find.

Ok, Firstly.... you were not Rude, so no need to apologise here, please, let's keep it that way.

Secondly, you have altered your post to have more information on the bottom after I had posted a response.

Thirdly, something like this DOES actually exhist already, maybe not for all versions, but for mine it sure does.

Thanks for the welcoming back, very appreciated.

I am not sure how to find out which version of the Forum I am currently running, if you were to tell me how to find out, I can give the proof you need.

Thanks very much.

Ok, here goes then:

[1] Firstly, head for the AP panel

[2] Now Click 'General'

[3] Now find 'Messages and E-mails', click on that.

[4] Scroll down till until you find a white box which mentions the Welcome message.

[5] Write your message, click enable and click 'Save'

Has this helped you out at all, I hope it does.

Yes, I seem to be wrong again.. because you KEEP changing you intial post... how can anyone find out what you are really after if you keep changing your post around?

With that said, I am now going to withdraw from this suggestion thread as I can offer you no help at all with what you are wanting to know.

I do however wish you luck with your suggestion, and I hope there are no hard feelings at all between us and that you find the answers you seek from someone who is more able.

don't think this will be implemented ...

why?
because it can be done without any techie or admin replying here ...

all you need is a fancy javascript for your page. just google a text popup and paste it into your homepage description
(admin panel -> display -> hompage -> configuration)

I believe, kilsek uses something similar for guests ... modify the javascript so it appears for newly registered members

unless I'm missing the point
