"My Messages" tab.
« on: March 14, 2009, 05:21:04 AM »
Hello WXForum management.
The site layout is setup great and easy to navigate. I was only wondering if the "My Messages" tab could be setup with flashing red or yellow number when you receive personal messages? Maybe I'm just getting old and can't see but I overlook it frequently when there is a number there. Possibly a flashing yellow or red number would get my attention when logging in.
Thank you and regards.
Dan

Dan, That's a great idea. But don't deel to bad. I would probably miss it to. But I have it set up so the forum sends me an e-mail anytime I have a message here. You can set it up in your message options here on the forum. Atleast I think thats where you set it up? ](*,)



Thanks,
Anthony

There's an alternate way to really notify you .. it opens a popup dialog telling you about new PMs and allows you the choice to open a new tab/window to view the messages.

Enable it in your Profile, Personal Message Options

then tick the box for "Show a popup when you receive new messages?" and Save your profile.

Then when you refresh your screen, and you have a PM waiting, you'll see the popup dialog letting you know about it and offering to view your PM now in a new window/tab.

Thanks Ken. See what I mean about getting old and can't see? If I would have just looked where you mentioned in the first place then I wouldn't have to bother you with ignorant questions. :oops:
Appreciate the information.   :-)

As I see it. No question is deum or ignorant. Except for maybe the one that does not get asked.



Thanks,

That's true. You may never know if you don't ask, huh? Anyway, thanks for yours and Ken's guidance. I see the settings you guys mentioned and have it setup now. No excuses for not replying to messages now.Cheers,
Dan
