i think it all works but there could be some bugs with either the install or the actual script, please post them here, i have also included a .diff file for all you lazy people (thx ulph), oh and it doesn't seem to work at all in postgresql so i'll look at that soon

THIS IS A BETA!!! MAKE BACKUPS!!! DO NOT USE ON A LIVE SITE!!!!!

You will need to delete your cache files after installing this mod for it to work, i'll add this to the install when i release it in full

Download

if all goes well i hope to release a proper version this weekend big_smile

how to apply the diff
1. Enter your punbb-directory
2. patch -p2 < /location/to/PM-1.2.0.diff

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

yeh sorry delete your cache files (i've fixed it in the install.php for the full release)

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

If i send messages loged as Administrator to some member, he (sometimes) dont get displayed "There are new messages " - Othervise (reverse) - if a member send me a message when i was logged as Admin, i get "There are new messages " anouncment.

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

Can someone confirm that this works on 1.2.1 bug-free?

Also, when can we expect the full release?

does he actually have new messages though when he goes into messages, e.g. does at least one of the messages have a blue square next to it?

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

Yup, that's because the if statement you put that within when you edit the code is one only mods and admins can see...
Try moving it out of that block of code?

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

yeh what smartys said it has to be after the } not before

has anyone else tried this mod and if so has it worked?

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

In the instructions, perhaps take the line after it and say "BEFORE, ADD" to reduce confusion?

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

Mmm
You can manually run that SQL (replace prefix_ with the prefix of your install, or delete it if you don't have one):

INSERT INTO prefix_config (conf_name, conf_value) VALUES('o_pms_enabled', '1')
INSERT INTO prefix_config (conf_name, conf_value) VALUES('o_pms_messages', '50')
INSERT INTO prefix_config (conf_name, conf_value) VALUES('o_pms_mess_per_page', '10')

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

lol that doesn't solve the problem smartys thats just a quick fix

ellmang did you upload it into your punbb folder? it has to be in the same folder as config.php

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

i followed the readme.txt so its install_mod.php is in the punbb dir yeah

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

what is $db_prefix set to in config.php? is a blank by any chance?

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

its punbb_

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

ok i've changed the package try redownloading it and installing it, it now also works on postgresql and deletes your cache files automatically (i hope)

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

just re-downloaded it and re-tried....still no joy :S .....

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

Re: Private Messaging for 1.2.x BETA

you can't have downloaded it again since $db_prefix is no longer in it
