 Adding alerts to this skin

My forum's about to change skins but I'm setting up the skin on a test site so I can just transfer it over. I'd like to add the alert system so that it'll tell me how many alerts I have and then give me the dropdown to show where I've been tagged.

I don't know how to add the alert thing to this particular skin.
browser: Google Chrome

- Edit, I've tried an animation div thing that was recommended by but it hasn't worked.

Please try using what I gave another user in this post:

What does 'call this' mean in that coding context? I was confused by that on the last help I received.

- EDIT- Also when it comes to those codes you gave that person, where do I post them all exactly or are they part of more codes?

When 'call' is used in the context of programming, it usually means referencing a function.

I made a function called custom_alerts()

I then had Delphi make a link:

<a href="javascript:custom_alerts()">Alerts</a>

When that link is clicked, it calls the function custom_alerts(); which pops the menu up for her. However, this may not work for all designs and styles. Incorporating that menu as-is into a custom navigation bar is extremely tricky. See what happens when you follow this method as a test. The codes belong in the wrappers.

Ok so the alerts shows up in the main bar rather than messing up which is good. It links to alerts but the dropdown or the number of alerts shown doesn't appear.

I'm not convinced that I've put the coding in the right place.

I couldn't really find the top coding in there, or I've missed it. And I wasn't sure what part I was supposed to change for the bottom code.

If I've misplaced the code (which I may well have, can you please show me how it should look? If it doesn't work after that, I'll probably just give up as it's probably the skin.)
