Updated 12-19-2010 to add all the full version features to the free version. There's no longer a full version, just this free one with everything.

Popup Private Messaging is a useful (and neat!) modification for your vBulletin 3.8 forum. Instead of redirecting a user to a separate "Compose Message" page when they try to send a private message, a "popup" private message form is displayed without taking them away from the page they're viewing. It intelligently replaces every single PM link on your forum, CMS or blog without any template edits or plugins that mess with your templates. It's loaded with features and has been tested with IE 8, FireFox 3.6, Opera 10.10, Chrome 3.0, and Safari 4.0.4!

This modification is also available for vBulletin 4.0 - get it here!

Highlights:
  • Uses a DHTML "popup" which won't be blocked by popup blockers, as it is not a "real" popup window.
  • New! Automatically centers the popup on the page, regardless of window size or how far down the page a user is.
  • Auto-fills the PM form with the username of the person you wish to send a private message.
  • Supports multiple recipients (based on user permissions).
  • Standard or WYSIWYG form, advanced PM options, etc.
  • Lightbox effect that dims the rest of the page.
  • Preview message within the window, without being redirected elsewhere.
  • Window can be closed by the user via an "X" in the upper corner.
  • New! Window automatically closes after the message is sent.
  • Admin CP options allow you to customize window size and which usergroups can use the popup PM modification.
  • New! Intelligent Javascript file replaces every private message link with the popup links on the browser side, saving your server's resources and your templates!

Live Demo:

A live demo can be found on my website - no registration required to see the basic popup functionality, but if you want to try the actual form you'll need to register as guests/unregistered users can't use private messaging.

If you're using an old version of Popup PM:

Please uninstall it from your product manager and ensure that all template edits were removed, especially if you had to manually edit your templates. The new version does not require any template edits, but rather uses plugins and a Javascript file that replaces PM links on the fly to save your templates from being messed up.

Compatibility Notice:

This was developed on vBulletin 3.8.4 Patch Level 2. There are no guarantees that it will work on anything below that, and I'm not going to bother testing anything below the latest 3.x release since vBulletin 4.x now exists. You've been warned.

Support for this Modification:

Not any more - that was the point of making the full version free. I no longer have time to support anything.

The WYSIWYG editor is a part of the full version of this new modification. A demonstration can be found at this thread on my demo forums. Thanks!

That isn't necessarily a bug - the miscellaneous options are not a part of the popup PM window, so things like "save to sent messages" and "request read receipt" will always be set to no in the popup, regardless of what your individual settings are. The full version retains those features.
