I never log out of the MB forum. Nor the test forum. If I log out, and then back in, I get the popup. This was not the behavior with SFM 1.x. Can someone please send me a test PM on both this forum and the test forum? That should pretty much let me confirm the reason for no popups.
I don't think that is the case, atleast for me, I don't log out either, but i do recieve popup message on the demo forum,
I just visited the demo forum and i got one popup, so i highly doubt that is the problem.
But the behavior is not the same in this, the soon-to-be-former forum. Logging out and logging back in does not cause the popup to pop up. That leads me to believe that the problem isn't necessarily with the upgrade to SFM 2.x. It would be nice if this could be resolved. Or at least determined if SMF is aware of this as an issue. One should not have to log out and then back in in order to see the new PM popup notice.
Unfortunately it is due to upgrade of the current forum.
I don't think it is much of priority for me to fix this current forum, as fixing thing might break another thing :/
I am trying to get the new site up and running asap, but to be fair it is going to take a while, since designing a cms is complicated, i am taking my time to get it right.
and no it is not an SMF issue, as Arnator(one of the smf member) mentioned in few posts, this is because of the custom theme.
I just did a very quick forum search on SMF and this thread might be close to solving the issue...
There are many hits for "private message notification" and this is the first and only one I read.
Unfortunately that answer is not the answer for our problem, as the op used some mod that i don't use in the demo forum, nor it is used here(i guess).
i did some searching too, but as i said i am not keen on fixing the issue on this current forum, since it could break other things,
As for the demo forum i do get popup notification every time someone pm me.
I am going to PM you in the demo forum, also can you mention what browser do you use? can you try chrome?
also pm me again i am going to try using Firefox this time.
