This template modification was developed by request [LINK] of RED SPIDER.

I opted not to phrase this as that would be more effort than this modification really deserves. I've included the image file used in the screenshot.

In either POSTBIT and/or POSTBIT_LEGACY, paste the following code at the top.

Upload the image to /images/misc/

Find code just go to your admincp and Styles & Templates >> Search in Templates

And find the codes to replace

<<<<< "Postbit" is the same setup as vb.org with the names added there

'postbit_legacy' is if you have the new way of having the names and things above the post.

Make sure you back your code up before changing things in case you make a mistake ;)

"Code it better"? It's a template modification.. how exactly would you prefer it be coded? :rolleyes:

thank. great mod. this is the italian translation

simalert 15 Feb 2007 17:10

Excellent idea. I can't see a massively practical use for this, but I've installed it and love it anyway! :D

Mr Pink 15 Feb 2007 18:09

Nice mod! It could be a great solution for phishing and stuff like that.

fusiongoddess 19 Feb 2007 05:00

Awesome!! Thanks!

kall 19 Feb 2007 05:45

Very nice idea. :)

(It should actually be "..trust its contents." The apostrophe in there makes it read "..trust it is contents.").

ncweb 20 Feb 2007 01:22

Great mod magnus, thanks!

I think it also adds a special touch to the welcome PM for new members.

/installed

rowlandc 28 Feb 2007 14:00

anyway to make it so only admins can have this?

Because many of my mods chat with other users and they don't want the user to get the message so what do i have to change so only the admins get the message?

Best regards,

rowlandc123

pollon 28 Feb 2007 14:08

I would like the PM Security Certificate to appear only in PMs sent by the admins (or by selected usergroups). is that possbile?

Yes, very much so.

Just change the numbers in the first line according to which groups you want to have this on their sent PMs. By default it's set to '5, 6, 7' but you can change this to the groups you want (see your user group manager in admin control panel to get group numbers).

In the above code, it's this bit you have to change
Quote:

<if condition="THIS_SCRIPT=='private' && is_member_of($post, 5, 6, 7)">
<br />
You could also use the above to create a similar mod for your forum to create verficiations or actions based on other user groups too, not just site staff. Or you could have one for admins and one for moderators etc.

Great mod. Flawless installation on 3.6.7 PL1

Nickbe 02 Oct 2007 10:25

Am I missing something? is this not useless unless it says "this message is unverified" when non-staff send PM's?

I think I can code the rest myself anyway.

Nickbe 02 Oct 2007 10:36

If you want a UNVERFIED warning when non moderators send a PM here is the code. Place it in postbit and/or postbit legacy above or below the code for this mod....

Make sure your moderators primary usergroups are all set to moderator and not the additional.

Thank you

I hope you figured it out by now, since the post you made was around 8 months ago, but in case you haven't (or for others who are new):

Go to your Admin Control Panel, and go to the "Styles & Templates" section in the left hand panel. Click on "Style Manager" and in the pull-down menu select "Edit Templates." At the next screen click on the "<<>>" button to expand all of the settings, and then scroll down until you see Postibit and Postbit Legacy. Highlight whichever style postbit you are using and click on the "Customize" or "Edit" button, and then paste the code in the beginning of the template that appears, and then hit the "save" button.

If you are unsure if you are using Postbit or Postbit Legacy, then edit both templates. Postbit is the default setting when you install VB, so unless you changed it in the options, then you are using postbit.

Upload the image to the "misc" folder of your images directory.

Test the function by sending yourself a PM, and then look at the screen that appears when you read the message.

--------------------------------------------

If people want to make it so they get a different "Verified" message from each staff usergroup (moderators, supermoderators and admins) you can use this code:

are you sure it is in the misc directory in images? are you using a different style? you can always hardcode the actual URL of the image instead of cuing VB code and see if that works.

Cleaner styling

Credit to magnus of course, but I modified this to be a little cleaner and not leave open (and ugly) white space.

Nothing has really changed, simply add to postbit or postbit_legacy.

I like that alot more! here is the updated version, using your layout, to include separate messages from the admin, supermoderator, and moderator usergroups:

If anyone wants to attach a warning image to the WARNING notices (permitting you added that onto the certificate) i have attached a 27x27 png file, just edit the code to make it warning.png

place the warning.png file in your style > misc folder.

Its = belonging to it. "The modification has a coding error."
It's = it is. "It's not my fault the modification has an error!"

Your good at coding, what's with this masquerading around as the Grammar Police? :p

Dude, no. It's is the one time where apostrophe != possession. It's == It is. (although, this appears to be what you are saying.. but that's not what this modification says.. :) )

(and whatever do you mean.. "masquerading"? :p .. I tried to grammar police this thread 3 years ago. I've just not had cause to pop my GP hat on too often, that will be why you haven't noticed.) :)

P.S. It's you're. :D
