Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Re-usable Code Translations  

Private Conversations is a small mod that adjusts the way your PMs are displayed; Instead of the old method which shows one at a time quoting the last message, this threads them and makes them work much like the Conversation feature that visitor messages use. A conversation is defined as two users PMing eachother using the same PM title (With or without the "Re:" prefix), so as to not mix up different conversations that aren't related.

Known Bugs
  • The conversation page looks ugly. I know, I'm sorry. I plan to redesign it straight away.
  • Sending a PM to yourself will show all messages that other people have sent you that have the same title. But to be honest, how often do you PM yourself?
  • It currently ignores user-set avatar rules ("Hide all avatars", for example).
  • ???
  • Find a bug? Please let me know

To-Do List
  • Figure out a way to make folders work with conversations.
  • Redesign the conversation page!
  • Add a paging method to conversations, currently all of the messages are on the same page.
  • ???
  • Got an idea? Please tell me

Installation
Simply open up your ACP, click "Plugins & Products" on the left, "Manage Products", then import the attached file. No uploading or modifications required

Usage
Private Conversations is entirely automatic, no configuration or installation required (Other than the above). Upon visiting the "Private Messages" page, this mod will automatically list conversations. To see normal PMs instead of conversations, simply select a folder at the top menu (Such as "Inbox") and Private Conversations will let the default view take over; It will always allow vBulletins PM system priority over itself whenever it detects that the user has selected a folder.
A reply box will show at the top of each message, allowing for easy replies. You can also select 'View Full' on each message to see it in the old format, which you can also reply to using the old method. All messages apart from the three latest are automatically collapsed inside conversations, to save page space.

Note to mod developers
This uses and calls the following inbuilt hooks: private_showpm_start, private_messagelist_start, private_messagelist_messagebit, and private_messagelist_period. Because I am not too sure on how well this will cope with other mods, I have added a variable $pricon that will set to true if the user is viewing conversations not normal PMs, which you may check for in plugins and use to halt your code should it be incompatible for some reason.

Any updates coming for this?? i will make a $50 donation if you get these done

-Find a way to reverse the view order (or give the user an option to reverse the order) so it appears from oldest at the top, to newest at the bottom, with the quick reply box at the bottom of the list so it appears more like a thread
(I know this has already been requested)

-Add a check box to allow the user to select all messages in the conversation for deletion

-Give a drop down box with more options when a message is selected (just like when you're in the standard "View Inbox" view, there is a drop-down box with delete, move, mark read, mark unread, and export options with a Go! button)

-Currently, after you delete a message or choose to look in your Sent Items or Inbox (or any custom folder), you are returned to the standard Private Messages view, not Private Conversations. Improve the usability of this function to return back to Private Conversations for the end user so that they don't have to click on the "Private Messages" button in the welcome block or "List Messages" in the User CP just to get back to the Private Conversations view.

-Put more user information about the sender than their avatar and username with a link to their profile. Can easily reproduce the format here based on what's in the postbit template for the threads in the forums to show the user's name, their title, a drop-down box for the user information, as well as instant messaging icons and other information.

Question

Great Hack!

Is it possible to enable this hack only for some usergroups?

(I would like to have this option enabled only for the 'Super-Members', and would like to let users turn it ON or OFF)


Thank you so very much!!!

I like this mod but their is only 1 problem with it.

When you have received a few P.M's form someone the first one on the topic disappears, then the next... If this could be modified so all Messages sent and received are shown then that would be really good.

Question

The Mod also had a Bug that when Changing the Page of PMs it goes to the Normal "Inbox" Page.

The Mod also need some Work but the Idea of becing able to see the PMs as Conversations is Nice.

Disabled for Now, it Confuses and it has some Bugs to be Corrected.

Would be Nice that the Developper can Provide an Update.

My Best Regards.
