More obvious message waiting to be read

Post by some bloke » 13 Oct 2015, 04:06

Is it possible to make unread messages more obvious?

I have often eventually removed a PM that has not been read after members have subsequently logged in several times, and a few posts have been made by members saying the message is still in their outbox.

I'm thinking that new members, maybe new to forums sometimes don't see the Private messages tab.

Suggestions:
Perhaps open the message in a pop up window as soon as the recipient logs in/changes/refreshes a page etc?
Make Private messages tab bigger bolder and red until read maybe?
Or flashing perhaps until it has been read?

Whilst you're there Adam.......in the last few days my new pm's have been coming up in the "Older messages" section...... Is that something I could've done?

Cheers

Hi Adam,
Just had a closer look and my Inbox is at 100% full with the last message being from Geoff last Saturday 10/10.... since then they've been going into the "Older" folder.

I'll get rid of some of the oldies in the Inbox and free up some space which should cure it.

Cheers :thumbup:

I set my pm's to delete the oldest as a new one comes in. I'm forever deleting and messing about otherwise

Think there is a problem with notifications at the moment we are looking into it and it could well be a server error,sorry for the inconvenience chaps it will be sorted asap
