Title:PM Notify & Guest Register bar
mod was originally created by Cback for phpBB2. When I converted to
phpBB3 this mod was one of the first mods I modified and installed.
Later there was added some code provided by Strato at STG.

registered users it shows a bar when there is new or unread Private
messages. For the last part the users have to enable Pop up window on
new private message in the user control panel.
