Mod Version: 2.2, by Vitaly (Coder) Vitaly is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2014 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (9 votes - 4.78 average) Installs: 140
Released: 07 Feb 2009 Last Update: 22 Jan 2010 Downloads: 1018
Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Re-usable Code  

Features:
  1. Log all PM and Emails, sent via forum forms.
  2. Keep logs in separate table with automatic rotation of old records.
  3. Add new menu items in topics and profiles for fast access.
  4. Have nice dynamic menus in search results for cross-searches
  5. Managed access for administrators (except superadmins)
How to install
  1. Upload files to your server
  2. Import product xml
  3. Go to ACP
  4. Select required settings in “Vbulletin options → Private Message Log”
  5. Set access “Can view PM logs” to necessary members in “Usergroups → Administator Permissions”. Super administrators can be skipped.
Notes:

This mod uses full scan for text searches, that can affect SQL-server load at really big boards. Fulltext indexes are not used intentionally, because whose can't produce sharp results and not compatible with innodb. I suppose, that if you really need this mod, you know exactly, what are you doing and what are you going to search. In my practice, ONLY exact matches were useful.

One of tradeoff to reduce SQL-server load – make log size shorter (1-2 months instead of 6). When vB 4.0 provides refactored search framework, search method can be rewritten.

If you install this mod on your server, i recommend to clarify forum rules, and add text, that your project doesn't provide the ways of confidential communication – only public and non public.

PS. This mod is independent. Since could't find one, that satisfy my requirements to functionality and usability, the new one was done from scratch. Code is reuseable. If you can do things better - i'll be glad to install your branch and spend my efforts to another things

PPS. Should work with 3.7.x (checked at 3.7.4)

This mod is developped here http://github.com/rcdesign/vb-pm_log . Patches are welcome.

Thanks for note about smiles. I'll check, what can be done with relative paths.

About quote - don't know yet. Those were not deleted intentionally, but parcer for APC-executed scripts eliminates bbcode. I've checked, the same parcer call on general pages produces correct results. And other similar products also delete quotes. Need time to investigate.

Separate convertor should be implemented and that conflicts to my principles. If you didn't annonced, that admin can read user's pm, it's impolite to collect previous messages

You can try this mod http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=123166

Hi, im getting database errors on this since installing :


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

This Error comes when a new member has just signed up and received a welcome PM

Any Ideas? ... i've disabled the mod for now.

Thank you

Thanks for report.

1. Is it a sigle error, or constantly repeats with any try to sent pm (even after registration)?

2. Is pm sent via some addon or via standard vb feature?
