When we need to inform our users of critical security news (like this:, it would probably be good if the MOTD mechanism were able to trigger a popup notification. Just updating the text on the Home page is not really sufficient, after a while people stop looking at that.

Adding a "alert: URL" variable to the MOTD JSON would probably suffice; if that's present we should pop a notification.

Could I try and take this on? It would be my first open source contribution so I might benefit from a bit of guidance but I'd love to have a crack.

@DanielPolatajko Sorry about the late reply, but yes, absolutely! If you have any questions, feel free to post them here or ask in the #mailpile channel on Freenode IRC - I'm mostly done with moving countries and summer holidays, so I should respond more promptly.
