Private Message Popup

  • brad_langdon


    Does anyone know how to modify the code of the private messages plugin so that an image is inserted when a message is received.

    I was thinking of an image popping up next to the text where it says you have a new message like an envelope icon or something.

    I am guessing you would add some kind of function but I don’t quite know how.

    You don’t need to use a function: you could add the functionality you want just by hacking the plugin. You can always refactor later to move some things into functions.

    Start simple. Find the place where the message is displayed to the user. Then, add some html there to display an image. Make sure you upload the image, then make sure you get the path to the image correct. I think that would be pretty simple.

    I thought there was a “newmail.png” already included though? I don’t use the PM plugin, but if that icon is present, where is it displayed? If it’s not on the page you want, I would use the same method they use to display it, just on a different page.

    Although the title of this topic is “Private Messaging Popup” you’re not looking to create a javascript popup when the user logs in that they have a PM, are you?

    You could also contact the plugin author:

    From that page:
