    Default Message/Tip of the Day in Zimbra Web Client -- What to Modify?

    We're looking to extend the web client to provide a message or tip of the day function. Ideally, once the client is fully loaded, a normally-hidden DIV would appear, containing the message or tip; once dismissed, it would hide again.

    I'm having difficulty figuring out where to include this functionality; my choices seem to be either in one of the /opt/jetty/webapps/zimbra/js JavaScripts that load at startup, or in the ZmSkin.js file.

    So, I have two questions:

    1. What's the most appropriate place for this type of modification?

    - and -

    2. How do I know if the skin has finished loading (or do I care)?

    I've tried adding console.log firebug messages at the end of ZmSkin.js -- one before window.skin = new ZmSkin(); and one after; both show up in the console at the same time, while still on the splash page (e.g. before the skin loads).

    Thanks!

    grahamb,

    We worked out how to make something like a MOTD to appear on the login page as a scrolling ticker.

    Here's the thread... [SOLVED] AJAX Ticker On Login Page

    If you want more info about it let me know.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks -- I'd looked at that thread but it's not quite what we're aiming to do. We also don't use the Zimbra login page but instead use CAS for all (well, most) of our web services.

    I'm thinking now that this might be best as a zimlet, so I'll post over in that forum if more questions pop up.
