vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 39
Released: 21 Aug 2001 Last Update: Never Downloads: 6
Not Supported  

Hello all,

Well I did it, my first real hack. I don't know what the rule on this is but I'll be honest and say I used alot of original vB code to make this. I don't believe in reinventing the wheel and the code in vB is so good it makes it very easy to modify.

This hack will give Admins and Mods the ability to alert users with a small message. This message works similiar to the PM popup. It also has the ability to send one user a number of messages. Each message will be denoted by the person who sent the message.

If you are not competent with Mysql and the inner workings of vB and your not sure if you need this utility I would recommend not installing it.

I consider this to be a Beta since I only tested it on my local dev computer. I would really appreciate some "experienced" users testing this hack to let me know where I've made mistakes.

If someone is real hack happy he/she they could change the hack and add the thing listed on my todo list below. If not I'll get to adding them sooner or later.

Anyhow, have fun. I'll be answering your questions here in this forum.

Scott

Demo Screenshots


To do list:
1. Add option to send a message to online users only(good for telling them that the board will be closing before it's closed)
2. Timestamping the messages. Probably not a bad idea.
3. Checking that messaging is on before messages get stored in
db. Would save Mods the embarassment.
4. Add wild card function '*' to search for user names.

If you have more ideas as to how I could improve this hack feel free to post your ideas here!.

fxpersonline, please show some respect. Scott has gone through a lot of work to provide this. The least you could do is ask politely. Language and attitudes like this are likely to get you added to many people's 'Ignore' list.

Also, could you please enter your customer info into your user profile? See my sig for details. Thanks.

I second that, great hack that I'm sure was quite a job to make so there's no need for the attitude

btw. I get a more that good enough impression from the provided screeenshots.

Hello,

That's a give off. Quality for size. The jpeg is 100KB. I didn't want it any bigger. So it stays as is.

Make sure you follow the directions in the install file. There are some lines of code wich you need to add in both the mod and admin CPs. You must also resave your board options. If you don't you can send messages but the users will not get them.

Odd, it doesn't seem to be working. I edited global.php in my base directory, ran the install file, deleted the install file, uploaded the other files, and added the $ command and tried sending it to the administrators. It said it was sent, yet I don't see anything and I was an admin. Please assist.
