You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hello all!

I am using the {$mybb->user['pms_unread']} variable on my forum and I want to edit it.

What I want to do is make it say how many you have if you have any unread in parenthesis. Example: (1)

BUT, when a user does not have one unread, I want it to completely disappear.

Thanks in advance.
Do you want something like this?

If the user has unread private messages:

If the user does not have any unread private messages:

Or do you want it like this if the user has no unread private messages?

Upload the attached file to ./inc/plugins, and activate.
I installed it. Now what?
It looks like you've made some edits your header template.

Can you post your header_welcomeblock_member template?
I actually have it in my header template and I am using {$lang->welcome_pms_usage}. Can you please make it say "(x New)
Don't put it in your header template, because this displays to the guests as well.

As for what you want it to say, do you just want "(x New)", or "(x New, x Total)"?
Never mind, I got it. Thank you so much dude!

I will make those changes now. Thanks
