Different colour text for new messages?
« on: 21/06/2007 08:17:36 »
Would it be possible for the text "1 is new" to be a different colour / flashing just to highlight new mail? It can get a bit lost against the background......

Thanks!

By the way.. GREAT idea..

I would also like a "popping up" method from the bottom right corner, that they received a message, rather than that abrubt and rude screen that pops open with a warning thing with yes or no!! LOL

Stuart,
Failing a change of text, you can always change your profile settings. if you go to your profile and select personal message options you can then select a pop-up when you get a new message. i know this does not work on all browsers, and if you have a po-up blocker. but it may be worth a try.
