li.header-dropdown-toggle won’t work, because it’s not unique to the Quick Messages icon. It’s shared with the search and hamburger menu as well.
The first element that’s unique to Quick Messages is inside that <li>: the <a> element which has an id #toggle-messages-menu. As you already saw, it’s the <li> elements you want to rearrange (as do I).
Hi @angus, I just discovered this plugin, and grateful for it so far.
Running into a few issues/concerns with the new message indicator bubble:
It displays like this, even with all my custom CSS commented out:
When a new PM is received, or is read, the indicator over the avatar updates normally, but the QM indicator does not change until after refresh. For messages that have been read, this is irrespective of whether the message was read in QM or in regular messages page.
I didn’t see this mentioned earlier in the topic. Is (2) how the plugin is supposed to work, or is this a bug?
I’m experiencing an inconvenience using this plugin: more often than not the message count in the header shows an unread message even though I don’t have any unread messages.
This was reported by some users and I’m seeing it too.
