Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits  

This is a 3.5 Rewrite of my old hack, now using the plugin system (woo hoo!)

install the attached plugin and then make the following modification to the pm_messagelistbit template.

find:

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

replace with:

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

Extras

To change the length of the preview
Goto the Plugin Manager and in Hook Location : private_messagelist_messagebit find PM Preview v1 click "Edit" and towards the end of it find 300 and increase/reduce the value to lengthen/shorten the preview.

ALTERNATIVE VERSION: Thanks to Erwin for the suggestion
If you would rather have the preview show in a tooltip rather than show it below the PM title then change the required code in pm_messagelistbit to:

alternative code:

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

and that's all folks.. please remember to click the install and always tip your waitress.

Cool idea.

You could even make it so that the message preview comes up as a tooltip within the template using title="".

Edit: It helps to install it on ALL templates now doesn;t it. Instaled and working fine!

Suggestion. Please include the template instructions in a file as well. This makes it easier to reload the plugin and make the edits in the event of a reload.

Like Biker GA said the screenshot tells the tale, but basically it provides a preview of your PM so you can see if it's worth reading right now or can be left for later, also good for seeing what a message was when your clearing out your inbox.

Thanks man, I kinda assumed that is what the value of 300 was, however, without asking I probably would have broken something.

Great hack!!
