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.

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

It means either you did not do Step 2 or Step 3 of the installation instructions correctly or the files do not have the correct access permissions as the 404 error message means that the file(s) could not be found (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_404).

I also get the invalid specified file error when attempting to import the XML file from my computer. Becasue I'm not using any languages than english, and we don't have to upload any files to our AdminCP folder, wouldn't importing the XML file be my only step? Appologies for the confusion.

UPDATE: OK, I missunderstood the directions so, I got the read_pms.php and read_pms_eng.php files uploaded to the AdminCP folder and the XML file uploaded to the XML folder but I cannot see the option under "Users" in the vB admincp that should say "Read PMs". Any ideas on what the issue is or what I need to change?

UPDATE....again: It works. Appologies for the confusion...its been one of those days. Thanks for the mod and I marked it as installed.

I'm also getting: "Invalid File Specified"

I have uploaded -
read_pms.php
read_pms_eng.php

For example ->>
They're sitting in /forum/admincp/read_pm_eng.php

I then either imported cpnav_rpm.xml or placed it in the correct folder.
Both ways resulted in the above error.

I made both .php files 777 on VB 4.2 PL3

Any ideas?

Is there any way to make smileys work with this? Currently the path to the smilies on my forum is being messed up because the admincp directory is being included in the path and because of this smilies that are used in the PMs are not showing up and a broken image picture is shown instead.

The actual path to smilies:


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

But this mod shows the PM and makes this the path to the smilies:


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

Anyone know of a fix?

Running this on 4.2.1.

The easy fix is just place a copy of your smilies folder at that location.

Thanks for the mod, works great!

Quick question though, Is there anyway I can restrict the access to a different usergroup than super administrators ?

I'd say check around line 80 in read_pms.php, there is a check for supermoderators there (that did not actually work on my forum (4.2.1 PL1) as intended).
