    Is it just me, or has anyone else been having problems with PM notifications not popping up like they're supposed to? It's happening on both my computers, I double-checked my UserCP settings to make sure I didn't accidentally turn it off at some point, and I double-checked that I didn't accidentally block pop-ups in my browser. I have it all set to give me a pop-up notification when I receive a new PM, but I'm not getting the pop-ups for about a week now. I'm just wondering if it's just me, or if anyone else is experiencing this too.

    Okay, then it seems there's something for Greg to either explain or add to his to-do list. :biggrin:

    I reset the option for everyone. Someone test.

    It still doesn't work for me (at least with Prime).

    I don't like it anyway. So when you set it, let me know because I want to change the option to 'not show pop up window'!

    It's not working in Prime or Nexus for me. I first noticed it when I was using Prime for a while, and thought it was just something about Prime, but it seems to be happening with both skins. And still doesn't seem fixed as of this morning...I've had plenty of PMs to confirm that now.

    You can change that in your UserCP preferences. I like it because otherwise I don't notice very quickly that I have PMs.

    Yep, I know that!:smile: I just changed the option after upgrading.(before upgrading the number of unread messages written in red simply attracted my attention.)

    I agree, if they would show up in red like they used to, I wouldn't mind that the pop-ups aren't working...I usually noticed the color change too. It also kept me from forgetting I had a PM waiting if I cancelled opening a new message when I got the pop-up to return to it later.

    I just noticed the problem too. I had a message from a couple weeks ago that I had no idea about. Checked my settings and they are the same as they used to be but I told it to save changes any way just in case. I tried testing it by sending myself a PM. I didn't get the notification but I was already on the message center page after sending it so I'm not sure if I should have received one or not.
