View Full Version : [Release v2] PM Notification of New Replies

11 Sep 2001, 11:37
This was an idea by GutSpiller. This is a lot more complex than I thought it was going to be when I started out. There are a lot of code changes and they must be made *exactly* or it won't work. So be careful and I suggest you not pick this as your first hack to ever install. :)

The basic premise: It sends a PM when someone replies to a thread you are subscribed to. You can choose to receive PM notifications and/or email notifications for replies to threads. You can unsubscribe from a PM notification without unsubscribing from an email notification, and vice-versa. Just as with email notification, you can check a box under Edit Options to always have the box pre-checked on newreply/newthread screens.

For version: 2.0.3

Files needed: pmnot_install.php

Files to edit: newreply.php, newthread.php, editpost.php, member.php, member2.php

Templates to edit: newreply, newthread, modifyoptions, editpost, subscribe_nothreads, subscribe_threads

Instructions: Upload and run pmnot_install.php from your /admin directory. Follow the on-screen instructions.

I can't find some of the code bits. The last one before I stopped was on member.php.
(and no, it wasn't because there were no tabs :))

You're on 2.0.3?

11 Sep 2001, 12:01

Also, the table head says "In-line thread rating".

I've made a few adjustments. Apparently I had one direction in there twice, two extraneous directions, and two things that were not right under Find. But it's all fixed up. :)

In newreply.php, adding this:
AND subscribethread.emailupdate=1
appears twice.

In newreply.php and newthread.php this can't be found:
this is what in the file:

In member.php I can't find this:

This is where I stopped, I'll complete this in a few minutes.

Sorry bout that. :(

Yay I'm done! :D

Awesome work!

I think you forgot the pm_notify and pmsubject_notify templates (the PM had no subject, and thus I couldn't click it, but I'm guessing there was also no body).

Yeah I forgot those sorry.

Hate to bother you again, but you forgot the [url] tags around the address of the thread.
