Please click Mark as Installed if you are using this hack.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This hack can only be used by Super Administrators.


What Does This Hack Do?

This is a major update (a virtual re-write, there is very little original code left) of Dream's Read PMs hack v0.7. Permission for me to release this hack is shown here, and blessings are given by Dream here.

This hack will allow you as a Super Administrator to read your member's private messages.

Please, lets not get into a discussion in this support thread about the suitability of this hack and invading privacy etc, (I have seen this happen in other threads, so, I am pre-empting people before it starts). If you have a moral objection to this hack, please don't comment on it, just don't install it, it is as simple as that. This hack is here for people who want to use it, I have no opinion about it one way or the other.

Original Features by Dream:
  • List PMs separated by sent/received given a username or id
  • List all users with PMs
  • Search PMs by exact text, all words and at least one of the words
  • List the latest X PMs sent
Fixed in this version:
  • BBCode in PMs is now parsed correctly (almost, it does display the BBCode, but it is not formatted correctly and also does not parse smilies.... but this is fixed in the commercial product)
  • To and BCC fields when reading a single PM now display correctly
  • If a PM is displayed in Latest X PMs that has been deleted by all parties (from, to, cc, bcc) and it has not yet been deleted permanently by the hourly cron job, it will display a proper error message when clicking on the link for it, instead of displaying a database error
  • Any PMs that a user sent to others that included the themselves in the To or BCC now show up in Received PMs (they did not before)
  • High server load when clicking List Users with PMs, especially if there are 1000s of users that have PMs (now split into categories acording to how many PMs a user has)
Added in this version:
  • Now completely phrased (uses a language file that has 75 custom phrases that take the form $rpmphrase['phrase_name']), so can be translated into other languages very easily by creating a separate phrase file for each language
  • Now available in 7 languages:
    • English
    • Italian
    • German
    • Brazilian/Portuguese
    • Spanish
    • Turkish
    • French
  • Read Single PM - read a single PM by typing in pmtextid
  • Minimum length for each search term, and the ability to disable it
  • userids now displayed next to user (From, To and BCC)
  • userids are now click-able and linked to their admincp user profile, so user can be edited (ie prune all PMs from a spammer)
  • A more complete message is displayed if admin user is not super administrator, it has a link to vBulletin manual
  • To column to Lastest X PMs
  • To column to the recieved section of Read A User's PMs
  • To and From columns to Search for PMs
  • A lot of the formatting has been changed to make it look better (that is just my opinion)
  • Extra links to various functions for each user
  • Other things I can not think of right now
Frequently Asked Questions

Question:
How do I hide the Read PMs link?
Answer:
The only way to do so, is to not upload cpnav_rpm.xml and to use a shortcut/bookmark to http://<your-forum-path-here>/admincp/read_pms.php? instead.

vBulletin Version Compatibility

This hack can be used with vBulletin versions 4.0.0 - 4.2.1.

The version of this hack can be used with v3.8.0, v3.7.0, v3.6.0 and later versions is available here.

Can you tell me what bugs? As I have only added your translation, and will need to look through the bug fixes before adding them to the official download. .... OK, I misunderstood that one, it was just the altered phrases :face palm:

I think you misunderstood, what I was asking everyone who uses this hack, and not yourself is that if they can do a translation in a different language other than Brazilian, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish or Turkish can they post it.

This is just a language update. There is no new functionality, no bug fixes, just updated an existing language. So, only update if you feel the need to.

As Adem GENĒ is continuing to keep the ball rolling with language translations (thank you once again Adem GENĒ ), I will make the following request to everybody.

As a lot of people benefit from this hack, if you have time, I would urge you to help me out and give back to the community at the same time, by providing a translation in your native language (as long as there is not an official translation already out there).

So, if you read and write a different language other than Brazilian, English, German, Italian, Spanish or Turkish, and have a couple of hours to provide a translation in your language, please see the Translations section in the first post for more information.

I temporary installed this to see how this would work & used it to read my own PM (sent to myself). But I did notice a small little thing above:

That is because when I wrote this, it was for the vBulletin 3.x.x series and it on a PHP 4 platform... now because vBulletin 4.x.x uses PHP 5.2.0 as a minimum requirement, I forgot to remove the "pass by reference" OOP operator, as in PHP 5 and above this is done automatically. So, I will release new version soon... thanks for pointing that out OldSchoolDSL

4.0.4 installed. Works fine.

With the older versions and with this one i often get this:

Fatal error: Call to a member function show_chatbox() on a non-object in /home/skodaforum/domains/skodaforum.nl/public_html/board/includes/class_bootstrap.php(412) : eval()'d code on line 18

But trying one more time, and it works. Its about 3 times of 10 try's.

There is no show_chatbox() function in this hack, so the error message in all likelihood has nothing to do with this hack.

I am assuming that that you have a chat box hack installed, and that is probably the cause of the error message.... you may want to post in that thread for support for the error.

Yeah, but the only place, where i do get this message is by clicking [view private message] in this mod. Strange.

Maybe is one of the two mod's conflicting the other? But i'm afraid, i'm not able to find out, it would be the chicken/egg discussion...

And my PHP coding skills are like nothing. If the mod's don't work, i'm not able to seek errors...

If you disable or un-install the MGC Chatbox Evo hack, you will not see that error message again.

There are other people who have have MGC Chatbox Evo installed and do not have this hack installed who also have the same problem (all you have to do is do a search for the error message on these forums..... which is what I did), so you will need to post in that thread for support, as it is an error generated with that hack installed.
