$Alert variable?

    Hey Guys,
    I'm trying to customize the look of the alerts and conversation pop-ups.

    I found the account_alerts_popup template that is setup perfectly...but there's a problem.

    No matter what, the $alerts variables return false, including the other related variables like $alertsUnread and $alertsRead.

    How can I set things up so I have access to those variables outside their normal scope?

    What scope do you need them in?

    I'm trying to use them in the navigation_visitor_tab template, so giving that template access would be enough.

    Use the <xen:container /> syntax. It'll make it available in the container.

    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

    It still isn't working, though. I found instructions for the xen:container syntax on this page:

    But pasting the following code in the navigation_visitor_tab template returns null:

    <xen:container var="$userAlert">{$alertsRead}</xen:container>
    {xen:helper dump, $userAlert}

    Declaring the variable using <xen:set> doesn't help. Also, the other variables won't pass including $alert and $alertsUnread.
