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 and
www.vbulletin.org at least, please don't pm me asking for permission.

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?

* clicks install *

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".
