vB Version: 4.0.6 Rating: (13 votes - 4.92 average) Installs: 63
Released: 13 Oct 2010 Last Update: 20 Oct 2010 Downloads: 242
Not Supported Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Re-usable Code Translations  

This product displays a small banner above private messages from certain user groups to inform the user if they are reading a PM from a trusted user group or not.


Installation
  1. Download and uncompress the attached .zip file
    LAM_PMSecurityNotice.zip
  2. Upload the images
    Copy the contents of the upload folder onto your web server
    Note: If you use a custom style you may need to copy/move the images into your style's misc image folder
  3. Install the product
    AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Add/Import Product -> Import Product

Configuration

This product supports three different messages;
Verified - This is used on my site to show that a PM has come from a moderator, a super moderator or an administrator, and therefore its contents can be trusted.

Authorised - This is used on my site to show a PM has come from an authorised trader - someone who has paid to trade on my site.

Untrusted - And as I get a lot of people who just create accounts to try and sell junk via the PM system, this one I use to show a PM has come from an newbie account.
All of the above are triggered by the PM senders group ID, and these are controlled by the following options;



You can simply change the settings above to suit your needs. If a particular banner isn't wanted then leave the setting blank. This product is fully phrased so you can change any of the messages as needed.


Example

Here are some examples of each of the banners. The verified banner;



The authorised banner;



The untrusted banner;

Although I've written this product for vB 4 the original idea came from the PM Security Certificate product written by magnus.
Thanks to DS MrSinister for spotting the vBulletin 4.0.7 problem.

I just noticed that the icons are not showing up. I have uploaded the images to my 'images/misc' directory. Should they have been put in a different location?


Update; I got it, moved the images to my style misc directory.

Thanks for the update. I've added a note to the installation instructions regarding custom templates.

My sites only on 4.0.6 so I haven't tested 4.0.7 yet, but I am planning on upgrading in the next couple of weeks. I really can't see that being the problem though.

Do either of you run custom templates? If so could you try creating a default vB template and seeing if that works OK. Or do either of you run any other PM enhancement plugins?

Either way I will get to the bottom of this! Just please bear with me whilst I get my site up to 4.0.7 first - unless either of you are willing to PM me login details for your site so I can take a look?

Yeah

I'm using the Underground theme from CompleteVB i do NOT recommend them, nice themes, crap technical support.

I am also using these two which i believe are both PM related

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=241248

But i am quite happy to let you have a play around in my site if you think you can crack it

Thanks

Will.
