Hi All,

This is a very small hack, but one that my users requested:

When you send a fellow member an e-mail via the BB mailform, you can select to also receive a copy of this e-mail to your address.

The "installation" (for lack of better word) includes inserting a small piece of code into member.php, adding a small piece of HTML into one template, and creating a simple text-only new template.

Enjoy!

Installation Instructions:

1. Open member.php. Almost completely at the end of the script, find:


mail($destuserinfo[email],$subject,$sendmessage,"From: \"$bbuserinfo[username]\" <$bbuserinfo[email]>");


BELOW it add:


if ($getcopy) {
$subject = "FW: ".$subject;
eval("\$sendmessage = \"".gettemplate("email_copymessage",1,0)."\";");
mail($bbuserinfo[email],$subject,$sendmessage,"From: \"$bbtitle Mailer\" <$webmasteremail>");
}


Save file and upload.

2. Edit template mailform.

Find, almost at the bottom:


<input type="hidden" name="action" value="emailmessage">
<input type="hidden" name="userid" value="$userid">
<input type="submit" class="bginput" name="submit" value="Send email">
<input type="reset" class="bginput" name="reset" value="Clear Fields">


And ABOVE it add:


<input type="checkbox" name="getcopy" value="1"> <smallfont><b>Check this box if you want to receive a copy of this message to your e-mail</b></smallfont>
<br><br>


3. Create new template, called email_copymessage with the following content:


This is a copy of an e-mail message you sent to $destuserinfo[username] at $bbtitle ( $bburl/index.php ):
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

$message



(change the text to whatever you like really)


THAT'S IT!

The mailform will now look like this:

If you check this box, a copy of the e-mail you just sent will also be sent to you.

Cheers,

Bira

hi eva2000 - good to see you :)

I usually surf up around this time of year, because we have the winter break in Formula One, which means I go knee-deep in website development :)

Since I postponed upgrading vB for ages (I ran 2.0.1 until last week), there was not much I could do on vB, so there.

But now I'm back, heh.

Okay, I would love to use this hack...but when I add the code on the member.php page...where indicated I end up with "parse error on line 1533 of member.php" ...whether I have the templates up and running or not.

ANy ideas what I'm messing uP?

PS....please remember I'm PHP challenged. :D
