  • Posting notices

    I am setting up some notices to say "Happy Birthday" and congratulate people for reaching post milestones. I was testing to see if notices are working so I set up one that said

    This is a test

    I made it Persistant and set it to appear to Administrators only. It should show up only to me but it isn't. I didn't use any html, I just typed the text in this section:

    Notice HTMLThis is the HTML that will be shown to visitors when the conditions set below are met.
    Did I do it wrong, do I need some code other than the text?

    What are the exact settings you are using? Do you have any modified templates?

      Notices manager: "Toggle active status for all" box is ticked.

      Active and Persistant boxes are ticked.

      I have not purposely modified any templates but I have some hacks like the Inferno Shoutbox, Welcome Panel, Separate stickies. My styles are only custom colours, the basic layout isn't changed.

      I set it to display only to admins. I am the only admin on my board.

        OK, I think what is happening is that the Shoutbox and Welcome Panel alterned my Navbar template when I uploaded the products-I didn't do anything myself. So what I think I have to do is add the code that enables the Notice to appear in the Navbar. There is an option to revert it but if I do that, I will lose the Shoutbox and Welcome Panel (I think).

        Is this the code that does that? And if so, where do I put it so it can work with the Shoutbox and Welcome Panel?

        <if condition="$show['notifications']">
        <div><span id="notifications"><a href="usercp.php$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[your_notifications]:</a> <strong>$notifications_total</strong></span></div>
        <script type="text/javascript"> vBmenu.register("notifications"); </script>
        <else /><if condition="$show['pmstats']">
        <div><phrase 1="$vbphrase[unread_x_nav_compiled]" 2="$vbphrase[total_x_nav_compiled]" 3="$session[sessionurl_q]">$vbphrase[private_messages_nav]</phrase></div>

          Still looking for answer if this is the code that makes the Notices show up. Anyone know?

            Place this in the navbar styles/templates that do not contain the word notices (no code installed for displaying notices).

            First search the navbar template/style for the word "notices". If you do not find it, add the following code to this template to enable the notices function;

            <if condition="$show['notices']">
             <table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
              <td class="thead">$vbphrase[notices]</td>
              <td class="alt1">$notices</td>
             <br />
