New Message (PM) detection

Post by NightStar3 on July 20th 2011, 6:49 pm

Hi everyone.

I was recently trying to change up my forum's menu bar, and I've been wondering how I can detect if there is a new private message sent to you (I'm trying to display an image saying "new" on the navbar)

Also, is there a way of reading how many new pm's are in my current inbox (by code) so that when the dropdown option of inbox is showed, it displays the number of new messages / messages not read next to it.

I hope I'm clear on what I'm trying to say.

Thanks,
NightStar3

Display > Pics management > Advanced Mode > New Private Messages

Simply put in the URL of the New Private Messages image (example: )

Errr... Thats not what I meant.

I've made my own navbar with html/css/javascript and i need a way to detect if a new pm is sent to you (don't worry about the image stuff)

Umm I'm not sure about what you are asking... You should be able to automatically detect if a new PM is sent... Maybe give me your forum's URL?

I wanted the CSS/HTML/Javascript code that is used by forumotion to detect when a new PM is sent to you. (The code that triggers the NEW PM displayment)
