If you are running version 1.00 and have problems viewing your Private Message, please apply the following fix (thanks to mini2 for pointing it out and providing the fix):
Goto AdminCP->Plugin System->Plugin Manager.
Click on Edit behind plugin 'Add Username history to postbit(legacy)'
In the Hook Location dropdown, change 'postbit_display_complete' to 'postbit_factory' (2 lines higher) and Save. All should be fixed now.

Better is to upgrade to 1.01, all known problems have been fixed.

Awesome. I am definitely going to install this hack for all my premium users too! :) Thanks.

One thing, do you think you can make a mini addon for Previous usernames too? That would be useful so users may notice the user's previous names anytime, just like this forum. http://forums.adventchildren.net/member.php?u=1

Help...My postbit_legacy

This seems to work even if you don't edit the postbit legacy. But...
And I get this error also...

You kinda alrady can do this (only the list of old names), but i forgot to add that to the documentation. Will see if i can add this to the documentation today.

PS That would basically just require you to create a new plugin with (almost) the same code as the Postbit plugin, and the same edits to the template.

When do you get this error, and what vB version are you using? Did you rebuild the bitfields as instructed? Are all files uploaded (in ASCII) correct?

Please be clear, does it work or not for you?

it didn't do any of the database edits because you forgot to add $ to the db variable ;)

For some reason, (and I had posted something else before (sorry...but I am still fairly sure that the $ was missing from the db variable ;))

It created the history table without the table prefix as well...thought you'd care to know....


But I installed it anyway and it seems to work fine now :)

Thanks

Thanks for this, I somehow missed the table_prefix on that create statement. Fixed in my copy now, will update zip later today.

Could you please be more specific, i couldn't find a missing $ in the install code (or was it somewhere else?)

I did forget to clickinstall didn't I...whoops :p

all your db variables that you need to write changes to the database were missing their "$" in front of it

ie I changed:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

to


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and thats the only way it wrote to my tables...

There should be no $ in front of 'db', there is already 1 in front of vbulletin ($vbulletin->db->....)

Please disable the product, i will find what is causing this and uplaod an update.
