Private Message Question

Fri Jan 20, 2006 2:45 pm

I received an e-mail that I had a private message and clicked on the link and read it. I also had about 2 dozen more I didn't know about. That is the first time I received an e-mail. When I open the Cub board, I look up and see the same message every time, "You have no new messages" and the little icon is never lite up? Is this the way it is supposed to look?

Merlin it is supposed to say that you have New message/s along with an eMail reminder with each new P.M.. You should tell dennis about it and he will look into fixin it.

Merlin, the option for e-mail notification of private messages is set up in your profile. You might want to review your profile and make sure it is enabled.
The pop-up message will only show 1 time for each new message and the banner line will only indicate the first time you open the page. In other words, if you go into the forum index and the window pops up and you leave the index before going to the message, the next time you go back to the forum index it will say there are no new messages. Even though you never went to the message and read it.

Depending on what combination of system, web browser and browser options you are using, pop-ups may not be displayed. I am using Intenet Explorer and have pop-ups blocked but with this site explicitly listed to allow pop-ups.

It must be me somehow. I call myself looking each time I open the Cub board, but that must not be the case. I'll keep an eye on it. I have it set up in my profile to "Notify on new Private Message". Yes Jim, I am using W/XP and have it set for this site to allow pop-ups, but very few other sites. Thanks Jim & Bigdog
