Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code  

I've had this little trick installed on my forum and its bought me a few decent registrations as a result.

As so many people where asking how its done, i thought i'd post it here for ease, giving credit to the guys below.

Credit to this edit, goes to KW802 and FRDS who made it so

What does it do??

When an unregistered person views your forum, they will see what appears to be an unread PM notification, with flashing gif, When the user clicks to read the message he's taken to the register page, Once registered he will recieve a welcome PM which has previously been set by yourself in your ACP, to send a PM to new registrations.

Thats it, so simple and it takes, practically minutes to install.

Where to edit??

Simply add the code below to your forums style header template, at the end and save, It really is that simple.

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Edits to the Code

All you need to do is just upload the flashing newpm.gif to your images folder or any other folder you wish and provide the url in the code, if you view the code you'll see where it goes.

This will only show to unregistered viewers, registered members will not see this.

Hope it brings new registrations to your site also

Take care

What's your experience with the changes so far? Is it doing as good as you expected and hopefully even better?

Did you notice any significant new registrations, what did your members say? Did it cause any confusion when they logged in the first time after you installed this addon?

Hi Rene,

I had a lot of unregistered guests viewing daily and i could see that they were looking at say 60% of the forum content (The other 40% is for registered members)

Since i used this hack i've had about 6 emails from new members saying that they love the arcade and they are glad the ads have gone, To be honest here, The ads in posts show for unregistered members and unless they registered they couldn't see or use the arcade. So they must of been lurkers for ages, and only registered when they saw the "You have email" Logo flashing.

So its a great way to get members to sign up, they will love the extra content that full membership brings. Plus they get a new email upon registering so thats there welcome emain from the admin sorted.

Caused no confusion, they simly love the extra content

I LOVE this idea!

But I hate doing template edits, so here's how I did it...

First I uploaded the newpm.gif image.

Then I created a new Notice in the AdminCP called "New Private Message".

I added this code to the notice:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And then I setup the notice to only show to members of the Unregistered Users Group.

This is how it looks:
newpm.jpg

I might tweak it a little bit, but I think it will do the job for now

Edit: Here's my slightly updated version, I just changed the CSS of the surrounding DIV tag:
newpm2.jpg

I'll keep an eye on my registrations and see if it increases because of this. If not I can always just disable the notice

I like the notices idea better.
The original location and screenshot, reminded me of those spammy ads you get on some sites, and as it's right next to the ad it looks like it's part of it. I think I'll try it on the notices .

Thanks both

Well this sounds so exciting that I am going to give it a try. If it works for me I'll spend you a beer.

Reminds me of the glorious movie Godfather. Usually those who disagreed with the boss did that only once in their life. Too bad that they didn't get a second chance...

Not really my cup of tea

Installed to test and in the top right it says you have a new PM


Surely a visitor knows that he ain't got new pm
and if they click on it it takes you to the registration page

Blah to cheesy for me
