Anyway to have an alert pop up. Had a pm that sat there for a bit before I noticed I had one. And I would not have noticed if I did not go to my user cp for something.

You can set it to notify you by email.

But then I would actually have to check my email.

If you have a real email (like gmail) you don't have to check it.

I'm pretty sure I get a pop-up but it only shows up the first time.

Eh, I dump all my forum emails from various places to my yahoo account so as not to clutter up my gmail.

PM Pop up alerts only show up on the first page to load after the message is posted.

I'm fairly certain that the popup notification requires js to be enabled.

Every Forum page has a summary of your PM totals -- including how many unread PMs you have in the upper right corner.

Like I said, I am an idiot. I found the setting after Jokeslayer's post, I do not know why I didn't see it before. Thanks though.
