Is it possible to have a unread PM counter on the forum pages. I rarely go to the front apge and thus miss when PM's come in unless i specifically check it!

Cheers

This has been requested a couple of threads down by No9 and is a fair one. It got chopped in the theme change on an assessment of 'no need' and no requests to keep it, but I can understand the use of it so will look at it when I get a chance.

Self refreshing without page reloading needs a bit of a jump in technology to 'Ajax' or similar - the sort of thing the latest Yahoo email uses where the web page can access the server without the page being reloaded as normal websites need.

I am about to look at this for another project in my life as a proper geek and if it proves straight forward enough I will do it as it's a much much better idea than an irritating pop-up.

So good idea, but no action on that one likely within the next couple of months and I will bear it in mind once I've learnt a bit about what's needed.

How about this? Only on the index page in the standard colour scheme at the moment until I've had some feedback.

I think it detracts from your top banner a bit. The principle is fine, but i would put it in the block of buttons on the Right hand side of the page (search, messages, new posts).

JMHO

Agreed. I should be able to fit it above the buttons on the right. More logical place too.

I like the addition... just noticed it this morning of course but it was a pleasant surprise.

I say chaps,

Would you mind telling me where my bottoms have gone?

The "mind the gap" shot was particularly good for morale.

I started a thread a few days ago paying hommage to ladies bottoms, the attached may jog your memory.

I can't find it now for the life of me!

Life preping for cse has become rather tedious and I enjoy the general peachiness.

Any ideas?

Never seen the above since it was supposed to reappear, then it's rare I get a PM, and quite right too. However, the other day one was sent. No informative box etc, what happens is that any ARRSE page I launch is accompanied by an extra mini window flashing about which states Error 404 done and the page I actually wanted to open semi freezes???

So, now I have to conclude if 'normal' serviced is freaked, I have a PM?? Maybe I know when one has arrived, but in a quaint old fashion way I so much liked the old technology - largely because it WORKED, even if it wasn't cutting edge, 3D, ain't I clever Mum, cool or whatever.

No.9
