Reply to all button in private messages
Mod Version: 1.00, by Xoligy (Coder) Xoligy is offline
Developer Last Online: Mar 2013 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.6.4 Rating: (16 votes - 4.94 average) Installs: 136
Released: 11 Dec 2006 Last Update: Never Downloads: 455
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.

I did this as instructed but now in threads it displays the reply all button as well. Can you please provide a template correction for this?

I'll be all over this once that template issue is fixed. Maybe put it in a PM specific template? Postbit and postbit legacy are used all over the forum.

Sorry, my mistake, I'll update the instructions in a minute. It just involves a simple conditional.

EDIT: Updated, thanks Basically add " && THIS_SCRIPT == 'private'" inside the conditional.

This adds a "reply to all" button to PMs, meaning you can reply to the original sender and all the people it was sent to. Very handy for group conversations or mass sending PMs.

Thanks Xoligy! Quick question, does this grab the BCC recipients as well or just the primary recipients? I'm hoping it does not grab the BCC's. I'll try it out today

Edit: It appears to handle BCC correctly I've attached my reply_all.gif image.

Nope, just the CCs. I did consider making it an option, but it would require more template modification and I wanted to keep it to a minimum.

Arrow How to: show button for specific usergroups

In my case only certain usergroups can send PM's to more than one recipient so it makes sense to show the button for only these groups. If you'd like to do this as well, expand on the provided conditional as follows:

<if condition="$post['replylink'] && THIS_SCRIPT == 'private' && is_member_of($bbuserinfo, XX,YY,ZZ)">
<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>
Where XX, YY, ZZ, etc. are the usergroup id's that CAN see the "Reply To All" button.
