Description:
This hack adds various new features to the Private Messaging System such as Post Count Requirement and Excluding Usergroups from using the PM System all together. On top of this, it also adds features such as PM Previews and a Delete PM After Sending option. There are much more too, which you'll be able to see from the screenshots and I am also open for suggestions on more features. Check the 'To Do List' to see if a feature you'd like is there.

Development of this mod has been halted while I work on modifications for future iterations of vBulletin.

Features:
  • Exclude Usergroups from Using PMs
  • Exclude Users from Using PMs
  • Post count requirement before using the Private Messaging System
  • Authorised Banner for Staff Members. Can be adjusted to suit your needs
  • Automatically quote PMs in Quick Reply for supported vBulletin versions
  • Show percentage quota used
  • Delete PM after sending
  • PM Block List
  • PM Previews - Inline and Tooltips

Installation Instructions:
1) Download the archive and extract it somewhere using a program like WinRAR or 7zip.
2) Upload the contents of the upload folder to your forum directory.
3) Import the product xml that is also located in the archive.
4) Configure your options by going to AdminCP -> vBulletin Settings -> Advanced PM System Options
5) If you are going to use the PM Block List feature, then follow these steps:
Create a new Multi-Line Custom User Profile Field.
- Go to Admin CP -> Add New User Profile Field
- Multi-Line Text Box
- Title: PM Block List
- Description: Users on this list will not be able to PM you. Enter 1 username per line. Mods and Admins will always be able to PM you regardless of this setting.
- Max length of allowed user input: At least 1000
- Field Required: No
- Field Editable by User: Yes
- Private Field: No
- Field Searchable on Members List: No
- Which page displays this option? Options: Log In / Privacy
- Keep all other settings default or customize to your needs.
- Save the Profile Field
- Record the field# given to the field in the Profile Field Manager. You want the field#. The display order may be different than the field #.
6) Enter the Field# in to the correct settings field in AdminCP -> vBulletin Settings -> Advanced PM System Options

Changelog:
25/06/2012 - Version 1.20:
- Users can now be excluded from PMs.
- Removed redundant code.
24/06/2012 - Version 1.10:
- Users that are excluded from PMs can now read PMs but not reply.
- Quick Reply is hidden from Excluded Groups when they are reading received PMs.
- Removed redundant code.
- Fixed an issue where some of the toggles in vBulletin Settings were not working.
23/06/2012 - Version 1.00:
- Initial release.

To Do List:
  • Add two different ways of displaying percentage quota. (Amount Used and Amount Left)
  • Add Reply to All functionality
  • Auto Reply/Out of Office Reply

Must be a different modification because this modification doesn't touch the database at present so the private messages would still be there.

I am currently working on a new version of this modification which will be much better than the current one.

I would love this to add previous / next links underneath a PM when reading a PM.

Also the ability to not allow members with below a certain post count to even read PMs from non-moderators would be very useful on my board.

Thanks for publishing this great mod!

Happened to me as well. I uninstalled it and it messed with the pm template so that is displayed pm's sorted by date but there were no pm's there to click on. I had to reinstall it to get pm's back.

I can no longer use the check box to choose multiple pm's to delete or move. Is there a fix for this?

This mod is blocking the reading of PMs by users if Post Count Limit is set to block that user from sending PMs.

I currently have a "Welcome" PM sent to all new users. Currently the mod is blocking them all from viewing it because they don't have the minimum Post Count (10) set to send a PM.

If I set "Post Count Requirement - Enable/Disable?" to NO, users can then read the message, but this then bypasses the limit I want set for users to send a PM.
