vB Version: 3.6.4 Rating: (16 votes - 4.94 average) Installs: 135
Released: 11 Dec 2006 Last Update: Never Downloads: 461
Not Supported  

As requested on, this plug-in allows users to reply to all users via PM, much like many modern email clients. To install simply download and install the XML file and then make the following modifications to your postbit/postbit_legacy templatebits:

Find:
<if condition="$post['replylink']"> <a href="$post[replylink]" rel="nofollow"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_button]/<if condition="$post['forwardlink']">reply_small<else />quote</if>.gif" alt="$vbphrase[reply_with_quote]" border="0" /></a> </if>
Add below (or above):
<if condition="$post['replylink'] && THIS_SCRIPT == 'private'"> <a href="$post[replylink]&r=all" rel="nofollow"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_button]/reply_all.gif" alt="$vbphrase[reply_to_all]" border="0" /></a> </if>
You then need to create a button and name it "reply_all.gif". Place it in your skin's button folder. For the default skin, place it in images/buttons, for other skins please refer to its documentation.

You're free to do what you like with this code, although credit is appreciated, it's not required.

Seconded. My forum users are bugging me nonstop about this. I'm surprised it's not built into vb4 or that there's not even a hack for it.

Okay, here's how I got it to work in vB 4.0.2 (for idiots like myself that couldn't figure it out before). This is essentially just a dumbed-down reiteration of brott's post.

1) download and install the .xml product in the OP
2) upload the "reply all" button from the OP (or one of your choice) into your images/buttons folder. Make sure it is named "reply_all.gif"
3) Go into your postbit_legacy template and find the following


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

And UNDER IT, add this


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

Do this and you should be good to go.

This works great. I had to put it in my postbit template and not postbit_legacy, but once I figured that out, everything is working like a charm!

Thanks!

I am running 4.04
There is no need to upload the button

I uploaded the xml file from the first post.

Then...

I found this part in postbit_legacy

Vb4 now has its own check for private so u no longer need to define the script.

This is all you need.

Find

Replace with:

Seems to work with 4.0.5... however... if I click reply all on a PM that was sent to only one person, it presents a really messed up view of the reply - the options below the message box get pulled up almost into the message and the subject gets overwritten with the message "separate multipe users names with semi-colon.

Hopefully someone can verify and/or provide a fix?

It appears just fine if I reply all to multiple users, or just simply reply to one.

(edit: this appears to only happen if the PM has a link in it)

Working just fine in 4.1.2, with the attached template edit, using Andreas' Template Modification Manager mod. My edit doesn't replace the original reply link, and simply adds the "Reply to all" link before it.

The only improvement this hack could use is to not show the "Reply to all" link when there's only one recipient.

It's absurd that this is not a standard feature of VB
