Solved Mark PM as read function modification

Post by curiouspandabear on July 28th 2020, 5:27 pm

Hi there!

I saw this new function on my forum: https://help.forumotion.com/t159338-new-mark-pm-as-read-unread
I would like to know how to remove it, or modify it because it's making my menubar longer than necessary. Not to mention for some reason it puts a dot after the sentence which is kind of annoying.
So is there a way to override the text or remove this function?

Thank you so much in advance!

Hello could you please screen shot where you see the dot so we can report it to our team.

Sadly this can not be turned off it is made to be used in our servers everyone has the same.

It's phpBB2 & it's not only my forum, there are a few forums where I'm only a member but the dot is there too, like it's closing the sentence.
More examples:
Mark PM as read function modification ALxWssN
Mark PM as read function modification Q9pjCcK
Mark PM as read function modification T2EAgbU
Here it also has a dot at the end.

it looks like a translation mistake Think  
Your forum is Hungarian right ?

EDIT: I have asked our team if this is something we can help with to remove the dot for you.

Sadly the update is not something we can change to make the text smaller.

Yes it is.

Thank you. Also it's probably a lot to ask (or maybe even impossible) but can't the word "privát" go to? It's really unnecessary, also makes sense without it and wouldn't be so long.

Edit: I also checked it on a few different languages and most of them simply write "Messages" or "Private Messages" for us is "You have no new private message" aka "Nincs új privát üzeneted". Is there really no way these translations could be shorter for example have the same lenght as "Messages" aka "Üzenetek"?
So what I'm trying to say: Is there a way to translate it short not to make a whole sentence out of it like in many other languages ?

I'm sorry if it's too much to ask. Crying

I have asked for our pro admin to come read this topic they will read it and give feedback to our Tech team.

Sadly we do not have a Team that dose the translating for Hungarian in our head office.
Sadly this takes time to get this done without someone we trust to do this on our server tools.

Hello @curiouspandabear can i ask have you made any change to your templates ?

I am asking as our team did make a change to the system and most of the forums was changed to "Messages" when you have no PM's and then it would change if you got new messages.

Hello @curiouspandabear,

Could you please give us the translations in Hungarian for this :

"1 unread message" (instead of "You have 1 unread message" / %d olvasatlan privát üzeneted van
"x unread messages" (instead of / "You have x unread messages" /%d olvasatlan privát üzeneted van

Will be "1 olvasatlan üzenet" and "X olvasatlan üzenetek" OK ?

The dot in the end of the sentence is already deleted, it will be online soon.

Thank you for reporting,

Have a nice day !

@APE

I did, but in the Hungarian version it's still a couple words but it's not that big of an issue, because we're used to it and have been working with it's lenght for a while so, we can absolutely live with that. Very Happy

@Luzz

The "1 olvasatlan üzenet" and "X olvasatlan üzenetek" would be perfect!

And thank you so much for removing the dot!

@Luzz So I might have jumped it a bit too soon(I was too happy so I didn't notice) but the correct one would be:

The "1 olvasatlan üzenet" and "X olvasatlan üzenet"

So sorry for this ...

This new 'mark pm as read' function is messing up my forum and I don't like it. My private message icon flashes to tell me I've got a new PM, but there's not a new PM there.

I get an email to say I've got a new PM, but there's nothing there.

I also no longer get a pop up box when I refresh the forum to say there's a new message....just a constant flashing 'New PM' thing that never switches off.

Whatever it is you've done, it's not working.

@Luzz

Sadly it still says for example: "5 olvasatlan üzenetek".
So the "ek" part didn't go away when it's multiple messages.
