    The sendspace links do not work any longer, anyone happen to have the latest version (with bshultze fixes)?[AT}gmail
  • You can download the private messages w/bshultze fixes here
  • any chance someone could code a 'delete' function for this plugin? my database is growing fast, and the extra PMs aren't helping.

    The delete function was added by jehul and you can download it here

    Included the sql file (sql.sql)
  • ah, great, thank you.
    does this include all of bshultze's fixes too?
  • Yep, it does include all of bshultze's fixes too. :)
  • i now get this error when activating the new version

    rror Message
    An error occurred while retrieving Discussion information.
    Affected Elements

    The error occurred on or near: Table 'copsandrobbers.LUM_UserDiscussionHide' doesn't exist
  • Did you create the "LUM_UserDiscussionHide" table using the sql.sql I've included and mentioned to you above?
    The error message you're getting tells you that you have not create the "LUM_UserDiscussionHide" table yet.
    Simply insert this table into your forum database:

    CREATE TABLE `LUM_UserDiscussionHide` (
    `UserID` int(10) NOT NULL default '0',
    `DiscussionID` int(8) NOT NULL default '0',
    PRIMARY KEY (`UserID`,`DiscussionID`)
  • sorry, i didn't see any instructions to create that.

    now when trying to delete i get this error:

    Fatal error: Using $this when not in object context in /home/.lock/circuitron2/ on line 724
  • what happens to all previous whispered comments within threads? Completely gone?
  • something else:
    in the user profile, the send message link has changed from this




    which is obviously not as useful
  • Sorry, I forgot to mention that I've modified that add-on to better suit my needs. So I've moved the "Send Private Message" from the "Accounts Options" which didn't make sense to me to under "Private Messages".
    My apology and try to download this version and see if it's any good.

    sorry, i think you misunderstand me.

    i meant the link in the sidebar of the account profile page. it used to send a PM to that user. now the link doesn't feature the username, so you have to type it in yourself, which is obviously less convenient.

    i can change this in the file myself, but it would be nice to have it included in the code so i don't have to do it when i upgrade.

    i am still getting the error described above, by the way: Private Messages 1.1 # 131... although delete DOES seem to work anyway...
  • I'm not sure why you're getting that error, the only thing I can tell you is to disable it and delete the "LUM_UserDiscussionHide" table then create it again and enable the add-on. Also, try to change the permission to 777.

    unfortunately that didn't work.
    edit: not very au fait with PHP, but does this help?
  • hi! has anybody an idea how to stop the private messages extension from increasing the "Discussions Started" and "Comments Added" values from the profile page? thanks :)
  • Did the changes that bshultz made get rolled into the official Private Message add-on?

    I'm getting a "Optionen" below "Sent Mail" on the sidebar..... when clicked, takes me to "account.php?PostBackAction=Functionality" Any assistance with this?
  • Omarvelous please explain your problem maybe I can help. What wrong about taking u to "account.php?PostBackAction=Functionality" ? it gives any error?
  • For some reason, the private messages don't go directly to the person you addressed them to. They seem to go to an "in box" that everyone can see. What am I doing wrong?
  • edited July 2007
    so whats going on? are the bugs resolved? and @BHR4CE1 did you pm yourself?
  • # BHR4CE1: you have to set that category to private, that's it.
  • Yikes! I tried to use the version posted by sjeeps above but it crashed my entire forum. A "Delete" function would be nice - and also making the "sent items" work properly.
  • What about making it work with Friendly urls? It would be a nice change, you know how important that is for SEO
  • @jaganat
    Hopefully search engines aren't indexing your PM's...
  • I agree rel1sh! That would be pretty bad :D

    I'd still like friendly URLs to work though - it's just much friendlier giving people human-readable URLs instead of something with a ? and = in it.
  • Any update from jazzman on this yet?

    Functionality requested from my users includes:
    1) Ability to delete PMs from the Inbox page
    2) Integration with WYSIWYG editor (I tried the hack mentioned earlier in this thread to FCKeditor's default.php and it simply returned an error)
    3) A pop-up window (or some other means) notification that a new PM exists when a user logs into the forum, as well as proper functioning of "notify via email" which is still flaky at best
    4) Proper sorting of messages in the inbox/sent items, or simply eliminate the "sent items" link since it is non-functional

    Everyone loves the extension otherwise, just needs a few final touches. Thank you and I look forward to version 1.2 (or 2.0?)

    dyohn... - you can delete PMs from the inbox page, although a checkbox may be useful as i have 130 to plough through! - the sent items link could probably be easily removed, i will have to have a look into it. i agree that better notification is still needed. an easy way to do this would be to change the styling of the <li>, so as well as saying "1 new message", it also highlighted it in a different colour. i will look into this later.
  • re: deleting PMs. Pray tell how to allow users to do this?
