Private Message button in postbit footer
Mod Version: 1.00, by trilOByte (Member) trilOByte is offline
Developer Last Online: Sep 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.2 Rating: (14 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 97
Released: 17 Feb 2010 Last Update: Never Downloads: 411
Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code  

This simple mod does what is says on the tin, it adds a PM button in the postbit footer using the vBulletin 4.0.2 css convention for mouseover buttons.

Note: This mod is NOT compatible with vBulletin 4.0.1 or earlier.



It could be argued that this is a little superfluous as there is a PM link in the dropdown under the members name, but that link requires a "click>>>scroll>>>click" to get to where you want to be. If your members use the PM system a lot, then they may appreciate a "one click" option.

There are...
1x addition to the postbit.css template
1x addition to the posbit (or postbit_legacy) template
2x images to upload

INSTRUCTIONS:
1x addition to he posbit.css template
Go to..
Styles & Templates>Stlye Manager>your skin>edit templates>CSS templates>postbit.css
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Find (search for "editpost"):

No, unfortunately not, that is a much more complex mod and I dont think it can be done with just a simple template edit (I'd be happy to be corrected if someone knows different??). This is a regular old PM button to the poster, it's just a convenience thing really.

Thanks for this as well as the To the Top button, these are very nice touches my members really appreciate. I've double-checked everything and can't figure out why the image isn't showing for the PM. Any tips on where to look? The other works fine. Thanks!

My apologies trilOByte, it works perfectly fine. Instead of double checking I need to triple check - operator error.

Installed - 5 stars!
