FIND IN private_messagelist_messagebit:

$vbulletin->options['threadpreview']

REPLACE WITH number of characters you wish to use


That's in a Plug Ins, right? When changing it I entered 100 with and without the quotes and it didn't work.

Now that the message preview is showing...which I love by the way! ...the post indicator (the little smilie to the left of each PM) is super small and squished.

How can I go about fixing that to make it look normal again (while still keeping the message preview of course).

Thanks!

Correct. Title of the plugin is 'Print Message Preview'.

Since you mention quotes, I have a feeling you're just replacing 'threadpreview' with the number of characters. Replace everything from Princeton's post.

The last line of my private_messagelist_messagebit looks like this:

Installed. My 4th, and the most complex.

Using the ACP Plugin & Products install is a piece of cake. And things're better already in the UCP.

Reading your Readme.txt, I see I am to "* Upload images folder". OK. How?

Forgive this vBulletin tyro! With what, to where?

LOL... I meant GTUserCP...
I figured it out where and how to put THOSE images, btw. And it works beautifully.
Thanks for the patient answer.

I'm assuming you are using large icons..
you will need to edit gtpm_messagelistbit template

REPLACE/REMOVE the following with whatever you want..
width="16" height="16"
