Ashley, on the board index page, could we get a notification of some kind, if we have an unread PM?? On the old site You would see a number in parentheses that indicated incoming PMs....
I get notifications that look like this when I receive a PM:

Check your settings in the User Control Panel to make sure notifications are turned on:

Up the top there is two links: Notifications & Private Messages. These will show a red and white number when a PM or notification comes in. Notification settings can be changed via: ucp.php?i=ucp_notifications&mode=notification_options

The next best thing to install would be https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... ister_bar/ or http://www.phpbb3bbcodes.com/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=2686 but they are very bulky I'll speak to my developer about a better solution

UPDATE: @HiddenHollow beat me to it

Ashley, don't go to the trouble. From Gary's post, I see that I have the tools already at hand. I'm fixin' to use them!

YouTube usually works if we just post the URL. I haven't tried that here, but it works everywhere else.

You are correct guys, now you use the media BBCode (the button with the screen between the font-size and centre bbcode)

Code: Select all
