Here's a simple tip which turns your side column Inbox notification text into a simple new icon that is already built-in to your base theme layout. I just thought this method is more noticeable so I have shared this tip. You don't need to upload any images just insert these few lines or copy and paste the attachment code text below into your custom code box and you're all set.
Sample screen shot:
Language Editor Version (with unread count, easy & more integrated)
Go to your Language Editor and search for the keyword 'new'. You can find the target field around mid part of the search result (Page 3) or sample link here:
Search for <span %1$s>%2$s</span> new and replace it with:
Hit 'Save' and the new changes should take effect.
Latest: With unread messages count (Load time fix)
Choose your version and enjoy!
Thanks for the tip works perfect!
sure thing Braden!
If you added the / and you have members pending, then I'm stumped. Could almost use a drink right now *lol*
<script> insert your code </script>
on a side note, I'm not being allowed to reply to your posts. The choice "Reply" isn't showing. Strange, huh?
How are you doing? here's the updated and language editor version only, for the Pending Approval new icon.
I hope you like it.
personally I like the "NEW" with out the the count.
Ning should work this in on their end
actualy it is worked in on their end its used in the dashboard for new items like the mobile site this just re-uses it in a new way
its like i used the featured photos slideshow as the header background on www.dreadlockssite.com/main just using a built in feature in a new way
I'm aware they use it in the dashboard I meant they should work it on their side into the Inbox too.
I try to run the least amount of costume code possible, I like to keep my load time under 2sec (Post Glam / 1sec pre Glam) and page size under 1mb.
dont use the custom code version use the m=language editor version
that's what I ended up doing
thank you very much
