Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

I've seen a few requests for it and wanted it myself, I spent a lot of time on it and then realized I wasted a lot of time and it was actually quite simple. Now this works whether you store your avatars in the filesystem or database.

Upload the plugin. Then:

In your pm_messagelistbit template find:


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

And replace it with:


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


You'll be replacing the post icon that shows up between the status icon and the message itself.

If your board allows users to not have an avatar and you're getting red x's on some, do this:

I can't get this to work - I started at the beginning of the thread and worked my way through and no luck at all

1) Add $sk_avurl = fetch_avatar_url($userid); to a plugin at private_messagelist_messagebit. OR just install the XML.

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

Where the directions tell you to.

Not very hard at all.....

You must be doing something very very wrong.

Just highlight the HTML in the PM list and View Selection Source (if you use FF). Look for the HTML that you added, maybe it's not grabbing the avatar's location correctly.

Question

My avatar limits are 250 by 250. Does this mean, this is how big they will be in the private message list?

Just tweak the html to add:

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

in the <img> code.

Don't think this works in IE6, though.. but you could create a class for this in the CSS instead, and use a few of the IE6 tricks.

Edit:
It is already coded in the html for a width of 60, anyway. Although I didn't use that since my PM page is heavily customized.

This mod worked fine for me for a long time. After upgrading to 3.6.4 a while back (or whatever version enabled cc:ing), random users would report problems when they received a message. Basically it was a SQL message stating:

Invalid SQL:

SELECT user.avatarid, user.avatarrevision, avatarpath, NOT ISNULL(customavatar.userid) AS hascustom, customavatar.dateline,
customavatar.width, customavatar.height
FROM user AS user
LEFT JOIN avatar AS avatar ON avatar.avatarid = user.avatarid
LEFT JOIN customavatar AS customavatar ON customavatar.userid = user.userid
WHERE user.userid =;
In order to resolve the issue, I deleted all of the PMs in their folders. That is not a good solution, so I checked all my plugins to see what was going off in the PM area. When I disabled THIS plugin, the errors disappeared.

I REALLY like this mod, but there must be some sort of issue with the new way VB stores the to: user arrays.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Thanks.

I'm running 3.6.8 and it is working perfectly. I'm sorry to those that are having problems. Only thing I can suggest is reverting your templates (back them up first), removing any PM related plugins/products, then making sure your problem doesn't exist with the default templates. Then apply any modifications you have to the PM templates one by one and testing after each addition.

I usually only do hack requests if I think it's something I can use on my board(s) or it's easy. But PM me and I'll take a look at your request.

I am also getting the error when a user is trying to access sent items, I have a questrion for you Tarana, could it be possible you lowered your limit of PM storage and some members have more than they are suppossed to have?

I have this same issue and about to uninstall. I love this idea and have used it for a while but couldn't figure out the culprit on what was happening. Now I have. Will remove for now.

No, I have not lowered my limits.

Can you post a list of your other hacks/mods? Maybe we can figure out what is common between our two sites.
