little PM notification box bug fixed.
You've probably never noticed that if you are using a popup blocker
@PlayGod & bluecubbies4me,
shouldn't be that hard to hack the files, but anyway the pre-hacked files for 2.0.23 are available
Do you know how I can change that default behaviour? Since they don't register through phpBB, but instead register through Joomla, and the bridge is then creating the new phpBB user account, where would I change that default behavior? There are no similar settings in Joomla that are being copied, so it must be something in phpBB.
The bridge doesn't set these settings for each created users.
Try to edit structure of the phpbb_users table, with the help of phpmyadmin.
There's two columns in that table called user_viewemail & user_notify.
Change their default value to 0 (again, while browsing structure with phpmyadmin).
See if that fixes your problem.
