With this hack you can send attachments inside private messages.
Sometimes you may want to send an image or file to another user, but
you just don't want to disclose your email or make the file public,
with this hack you can attach it to the private message.

Info for hackers:
You may modify, improve, upgrade, redistribute this hack, include it
in another hack or yours or translate it provided you do it free of
charge and you distribute it in www.vbhacks-germany.com (http://www.vbhacks-germany.com/) and
www.vbulletin.org (http://www.vbulletin.org/) at least, please don't pm me asking for permission.

Hi m8, dont work for me, I see no options to add attachment, permissions were already set to yet as default, Also i have rebuilt the bitfields in case, I have done the dits, although this 1

<span style="float:$stylevar[right]" class="smallfont">$pm[senddate]</span>

was not in there i could only find this
<span style="float:$stylevar[right]" class="time" style="font-size:9px;">$pm[senddate] @ $pm[sendtime]</span>

it also says when creating a new pm "Send New Private Message" twice now, see image please

So i added the code after that.... any ideas what might be wrong?

Installed, followed instructions to the letter, no errors or problems. Tested by sending a PM with attachment to a regular user account from my admin account. Attachment does not show, only placeholder box with red X.

Tried to send a PM from a regular user account to my admin account and got the same results. (See Screenshot)

HOWEVER...the attachments show up in the Sent Items box PM's as having been sent. They just don't show on the received PM

Suggestions?

OK....I've installed this and did all the template edits. I'm running 3.6.1.

I got no errors on the install but I cannot see any place to add an attachment in the PM.

Usergroup settings are set to "YES". I'm not sure where you are talking about "user manager".

I'm not sure where you are talking about "user manager".

This means that you have usergroup and individual user premissions, you will find them when editing a user @ the bottom.

I check them too and they are on... but it still dosent show the menu to add the attachments in the PM :S

OK...I found where you mean. That doesn't make sense I don't think...well...since they are all "yes" at default, I guess it does. If somebody abuses it I guess you can turn it off for that individual.

So....still doesn't solve this problem huh. :)

Hi,

What style do you use? Is it for free? If yes, where can i dl your style for testing purpose. Which vBulletin version?

I've not tested this version with 3.5.4. No warranty, sorry.

Did you try a fresh Install or only a Upgrade ? I have deinstalled the 3.5 Hack before installed yours.

I think you have coded a Permission Error. There was no Recaching at Usergroups if i entered them after Installing.

After Andreas (vbhacks-germany) checks my AdminCP again he still found 4 PlugIns from the old Hack. I am very sure that i have deleted them but thats what it was.

Problems?

Send me a pm with a full admin access (Style Manager, Product/Plugin Manager, Attachment Manager, Scheduled Manager) and your site name. If you problems to copy files to your server, create a FTP account, too. Create a new Admin/FTP account, so you can fast delete the accounts after my visit.

Finished words - please have patience. ;-)

I see no instructions as to an edit to the template "newpost_attachment", so I assume this is handled in the XML file?? I still cannot get this to work, but will keep uninstalling, deleting and trying again. I always work on the Default template before moving on to others, so it must be on my end.

Thank you for your efforts.

I'm sorry, I did not indicate that. Installation is fine, edits are all in place and files are uploaded to Cron and XML. The Product has been imported and the Phrase file has been successfully merged.

I never get the "Manage Attachments" button in the New PM window.

All the lines appear in the "AdminCP -> Plugins & Product -> Plugin Manager" window and the activation buttons appear in the Usergroup Manager > "usergroup" section and are checked Yes in the Administrator group that I would use as the test before implementing site wide.

I just tried to add the edits into a style that has never been modified, with the same result of no "Manage Attachments" button appearing.

Thank you, as you can see by my being a "one poster" I usually can figure out all of this on my own by reading and doing the research first. This one has me stumped by something very simple I am overlooking.

Is there a way to disable this for all usergroups/users by default? Every single user has the permissions set to yes, even after I change their usergroup settings. Does this mean that I have to edit each user 1 by 1 in order to disable their permission?

It's not needed. If you set the options to upload/download PM attachments in the usergroup for registered user to No, all users in this usergroup can't upload/download PM attachments.

29 Sep 2006, 09:05
ok, so if I set the usergroup permissions to No but their user permissions say yes then it won't allow them to send attachments?

doesn't vbulletin usually work the other way around, where user permissions override group permissions?

This hack was useless to me. It never worked right and for the right usergroups and someone alerted me to a fatal error in the registration process which would display this after a registration was complete....

Fatal error: Call to a member function clean_gpc() on a non-object in /home/keepmusi/public_html/includes/class_dm_user.php(2396) : eval()'d code on line 1

The registration somehow did complete, but that page leads the new signup into believing that it didn't, and at the very least gave the impression that my site is broken and too confusing to try and figure out what to do next. I absolutely advise everyone not to even bother with this! Had that bug report not have come (it came from another vb admin I know so she knows to look out for such things), my site could have suffered in a major way. Avoid this like the plague.

i experienced a strange thing: as i installed this hack, registered users were not more able to edit them own attachments after they already have posted a new thread with pictures for example.

if a user posted a thread with a picture and wanted to add after one day to his posted thread a second picture he received the
"no permission"-screen.

if i switch off the hack, the user can upload the attachment without a problem.
if the hack is turned on again, the permission is again denied for the user who wants simply to edit his own thread with his attachments (add, delete attachment).

is there a fix? has anyone the same problem?
maybe it's connected with thread-id "-1" in this hack?
must i change the thread-id in the product in this case (and where)?

Edit: the fix works thanx Stoebi - now again installed ;)

Here is the fix (official update comes later):
Plugin -> private attachments - initialize pm attachments if needed (Hook global_start)

Change Line 1

if (THIS_SCRIPT == 'newattachment' AND $_REQUEST['type'] == 'pm')

to

if (THIS_SCRIPT == 'newattachment' AND $_REQUEST['type'] == 'pm' AND !$threadid)

Guys try this simple thing before you all get upset and say it doesnt work.
Go to your usergroup manager and set both options for PM attachments to no save and go back and set it to yes again and save.
After that it should work. I think you only need to do it for one usergroup to update all but you might want to do all to be on the safe side.

I've a bit of the same problem. I'm not a n00b when it comes to hack installation. I've gone over this one 3-4 times now uninstalling and reinstalling following every last detail. I have the manage attachments box and am able to attach just fine. But when I send the message there is no attachment and no attachment paperclip? It's like it's there but the message is blank.

I then posted a new thread with an attachment, just to make sure the basic functionality was still intact, and after seeing that work, the box suddenly appeared when sending a PM. So it's working fine now. :)

I don't know enough about coding php to say there's a cause-and-effect relationship between posting the thread attachment and the subsequent appearance of the PM hack, but I'm just sayin'....

After that, everything worked perfectly! :up:

Well this finally got to working..after reading nineteen upteen million posts on the subject..
shame all of us had to read all the threads to figgure out how to make it work.
Then if that be the case, default settings should be "off" instead of on, requiring them to be turned on. :eek:

I've experienced the same issues after install; no Attachments snippet in new PM screen.

The trick: Edit each user group, set their Attachments in PM permission to NO, save, then set it back to YES.

It seems the XML doesn't add values to the permission field for the usergroups & the YES is only displayed, not stored in DB.

The administrator should have the permission to view, download oder delete the attachments.

I quote that!

OK, I have VB 3.6.8 PL1 installed, I can't get this to completely work.

I have the "manage attachments" option on the bottom of PMs, but there is no paperclip showing up on the top.

I can attach pictures but when they are received there is nothing attached.

I've uninstalled, reinstalled, checked everything as well turning rights on/off.

Any ideas?

one p[roblem i do have tho whenever i get an attachment it shows 2 images, does not show 2 attachments tho in the PM

I am having a similar problem. I think it might have to do with the fact that I have the Show PM Postbit rewrite (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=148505) mod installed.

Has anyone figured this out?

I tried it on 3.6.8 PL2 for the hell of it. Finally did the NO to YES thing, and the Attach Files box finally appeared when sending a PM. Now I can attach a file and send it, but there is no pic thumbnail in the PM when it is received. Pain in the ass. Uninstalled until someone can help.

I just noticed a bug with this mod....granted I didn't get it working 100% but I don't think it matters.

As soon as I installed this mod, my users complained that they were no longer able to edit their attachments in threads. They were presented with a no permissions page.

I uninstalled the mod and now the users can edit their attachments.

fyi.

I had this trouble too. I uninstalled this mod for this reason (and also because it's impossible to see private attachments in Admin Cpanel). I hope author will update this mod soon...

It's located under ACP => Usergroups At that time after installing I had some problems to find this option. It's up what other Modifications you have installed. By which I mean: This option is below my PhotoPlog Permissions. Know what I mean? -Mike
Yes, i know that but it's impossible to see attachments files posted in private by users.
This can be important to see if someone upload illegal files and send them to other users.

same here. editing or deleting regular attachments is not working for unprivileged users on 3.6.8pl2.

Is there a fix?

zendiver
19 Jan 2008, 18:21
The reason is is that when installed, for some reason it maximizes the attachment storage capacity.

I have tried to figure this one out and have yet to find the solution but I keep trying. In the meantime, any other of you programmers want to give this one a go. It has and will continue to be a very good MOD when it is working properly.

3.6.1
3.6.5
3.6.8
3.6.8 PL1
3.6.8 PL2
3.7 Beta 1 - Beta 4

without any problems!!! I really have never had a problem. That Hack runs damn strong :up:
So I decided to nominate it for MOTM! Definately well deserved!!! :)

You are saying that you DO NOT have any conflicts with uploading attachments? Seems everyone else is having the same issue: Attachments are maxed out....you disable this hack, and everything works again....this happens a fresh install as well as with other hacks.

Attachments are the most important things in my forum and I've never had any problems with Stoebi's hack. Any weeks ago I wrote a Attachment Search Hack for myself (vB does not have such a function) and too it contains a function to search the Attachments I've send out and also I've no problem with Stoebi's Hack. Also the Attachment IMG Resizer and the Attachment Highslide function works excellent!!!

Maybe I'm someone who never got any problems with that hack. Especially in combination with other special Attachment hacks :)

Both permissions were set to yes on all usergroups by default when I went through each one to check. Could there have been something I missed?

Confirmed to be working on 3.7.0 beta 6. Although I did have to save each usergroup first to get it to show up in the new pms. And you might want to check the banned usergroup as this is turned on for them on install. also, I see no paperecip or number of attachments in the pm list. But it seems to be working well, other than that. ;)

Try saving each usergroup without changing anything. that's what I had to do to get it to show up in new pms.

@ Mike-D - Sorry to have to report this, sir, but I had to uninstall this as users were unable to upload attachments to the site anymore with this installed, as zendiver reported. I thought it was working, but I found out earlier today that a user could not upload a small file to an area I know he has permission to. How did you get it working with 3.7.0 beta 6?

RC1, still no problem. @Boofo. I know this was address to Mike, but just in case .... the only time that I had a permission problem with that hack in one of the installs, it was caused by vbcredits. In my case, vbcredits was the culprit. Once disabled, all went fine.

Boofo
20 Mar 2008, 07:10
I do not have vbcredits installed. They have permissions to upload and download in PMs fine. It is on the forum that they lost the permission to upload files. I don't run a lot of hacks so I'm thinking it has to be something missed in this hack that is causing that.

This hack worked on all 3.6x and 3.7x versions. Any hours ago I updated to RC1 any you know what? This hack works strong without any problems. I remember doing something in that Code while using 3.7 Beta 1. But I can't remember what I did :( Whenever I figure out what exactly I did, I'll get back to you and to Lionel :) -Mike

i had this hack few days ago with 3.6.8PL2. I had the button, i could upload the files...but nobody was receiving anything/sseeing anything either.
For some reasons, i reinstalled all my forum freshly (recreating it totally....i was in test phrase) but this time with 3.6.9. I followed step by step thez process, but at the begining nothing was showing up, then for no reasons the button for attach files appears. so i clicked on it to try, but i got an error message telling me "Invalid Post specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator" (im the admin).

Is it working for anything else than 3.6.1? is there any support for the hack? isee people claiming it works with all versions since 3.6.1...why wil lit work for them andd not for ohers (including me)? i have a fresh version with no hack/mod installed
