Not Supported Template Edits  

This cool little mod will simply enhance and add some fun to your Private Message alert and adds a little flash animation to the bottom right corner of your board. The flash mail box can then be clicked and will redirect to your private message box. Animation is based on forum home page but can easily be added to display on any page required or indeed every page and will dissapear when mailbox is read.

Added new MSN Style Pop up alert box


There are three animations you can use. including msn style pop up alert box

If anyone has a different path and needs this altering in the swf and fla please post and i will arrange this asap - thanks



Edit template - FORUMHOME

Clock great too but can't get it to work
whats the problem with the clock its an swf file so should work providing you have it in your root ?

works well with the forum in a subdomain. installed in minutes on a bunch of styles. I would have used the butler, but he's a bit hard to understand....
I have some new mail alerts animations to choose form in a few days

Simply change the settings highlighted

Change the 10px to around 30px

<!-- Begin of clock script -->
<div align="right" style="margin:10px 20px 0px 0px">
<embed src="www.yoursite.com/forum/onlineclock.swf" width="90" height="40" quality=high pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" bgcolor="#ffffff"></embed>
</div>
<!-- End of clock script -->

Thanks tried that before, that just moves the toplinks downward.




Does the code for the adverts make any difference?

Just viewed your forum demo - But it didn't work. I assumed that someone must have clicked on it, even though you state not to, in bold red.

So what I did was to register on your forum. I am affraid it still didn't work (Even though I have 1 notification).
