Is the suggestion of Revpolar's "Whisper" possible? I'd love to have something like that on my board.

Is there a way to make a mod so a user can type something in a post so only the other user mentioned (and the moderator and Admins) can read it? Like the following example.

Jenny walks into the room and saunters up to Billy [whisper Billy] "Hey, do you want to go play cards?" [/whisper]



Billy would see: Jenny walks into the room and saunters up to Billy "Hey do you want to go play cards?"

Everyone else would see: Jenny walks into the room and saunters up to Billy WHISPER TO BILLY

Just wondering if this was even possible.

I'm just wondering if this is even desirable.... on a forum. Isn't that what IRC and IMs are for?

Nice hack, will come in useful for e-dramas =D

Just a suggestion: I think it would make it tidier if there was a button for Staff Comments which you could click, it would then take you to another page where you could add and view comments for that particular thread (just like how the user notes works)

Here's how I did it, very simple even for a n00b like me:

Open product-zointsthreadcomments-1.2.0.xml

Find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

find in line:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

inline after add:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

so you have:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Save, reimport product remembering to allow overwrite.

Good idea, Spank.

I made one change for my moderators:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I run a Play by Post site. It would be VERY desirable. It would lend to more efficient roleplay and keep everything in the storyline.

im using 3.6.5 and it works fine without the edit to the templates.

in fact when i added the edit to templates as listed in the README, it duplicated the comment box so there was two on every page.


in case anyone else runs into that problem.

The problem with IM's and IRC is that if you have forums that are being used around the clock and/or staff that are in multiple timezones, you can't all be online at the same times.


Therefore, having specific discussion attached directly to the specific thread it is about is FAR easier than having an all too cluttered staff lounge. Allowing most if not all of the staff their chance to have their say on what is occuring. It's all about teamwork in the end. This hack plays perfectly into that concept.


We use this hack all the time.


Awesome work =)

My comment was not about the add-on but about the suggestion in the post at http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...1&postcount=46

I also have this add-on installed and in use.

Any progress on that? (Yes. I checked the zoints forum thread. )

Another suggestion . . . . alternating background colors for notes so they're more easily read?

Thanks for this hack!
