Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

Another mod brought to you by,


[OzzModz] PM Spy, has won MOTM for December 2013 Mod of the Month!

First off this mod, [Chris] PM Spy, has been taken over by me. It did belong to Christos Teriakis. He has since given me full rights to the mod, so I am releasing it here. Only thing I have changed as of yet is the title, added the link and changed some template names, so it is basically the same mod. To upgrade from that mod is the same as any other time, unzip the files, load them to your server, overwriting the old files, then import the new xml. Please remember, this mod is as new to me as anyone installing it, so we are both on a learning curve.

*** Restriction in use ***
Please note that the Ajax Datagrid that comes as free to you is a commercial script and thus using it outside the specific folder (christeris/datagrid) is not allowed by the script's license agreement.

Note: As of now, if your database is running as mysqli, this mod may not work, there has been one report of this.

1.- What is PM Spy
It's a very simple utility to help Admins/Moderators (depending on usergroup permissions), to know what is happening behind the scenes. In simple words with this utility you can search all user PM's using Ajax (search as you type).
  • You can search on:
    • Sender
    • Recipient(s)
    • Title
    • Message
    • Send date
  • Usernames are clickable to user profile
  • Moving the mouse over the title you can see the full message in tooltip. Don't forget that the text that your enter as search in Title also searches in Message body.
  • Multi mark PMs as read, or unread if viewing PM's you have read already (does not affects the User Read vb option).
  • By clicking the title you can change indexing Ascending/Descending to all fields.
2.- Todo List.
If I see that this mod has enough popularity, I have in mind to extend it by adding some more features.

3.- Installation
  1. Download and unzip the file PMSpy_XXXX.zip
  2. Upload the content of upload folder to the directory where your vB installation is. To be sure: pmspy.php must be on the same directory as global.php, forum.php etc.
  3. CMOD 666 the file: christeris/datagrid/logs/errorlog.txt
  4. Goto Admincp and import product-pmspy.xml
  5. There are some settings at Settings --> Options --> [OzzModz] PM Spy Settings, including usergroup settings
  6. You can access PM Spy by clicking on the PM Spy link in the Quick Links Menu.
  7. New to v1.2.0 Users that are set to superadministrators in includes/config.php will be able to use the system, no matter which usergroups you have set to be able to use it. This means, if you leave the setting, Usergroups Allowed To Use PM Spy empty, only superadministrators will be able to use the mod.

What does 'Marking As Installed' do ?

* It helps you to stay on top of updates - members who have installed modifications will be notified whenever new updates are available.

* For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps me know how many people are using my work, giving me extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

I appreciate the support!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

v1.1.0 Nov 8th 2013
  • Initial Release.
v1.1.1 Nov 9th 2013
  • Fixed the error, Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in [path]\christeris\datagrid\includes\pmspy_functions.php (Line 19)
  • Fixed the count issues joeychgo reported.
v1.2.0 11th Nov 2013
  • Now you can have it so only users that are set to superadministrators in includes/config.php will be able to use the system, no matter which usergroups you have set to be able to use it. This means, if you leave the setting, Usergroups Allowed To Use PM Spy empty, only superadministrators will be able to use the mod.
v1.3.0 16th Nov 2013
  • Finally fixed the To Users column to show properly.
  • Added the ability to filter the results by To Users.
  • Added a new page, that you can view PM's that you had marked as read, before you were only able to view PM's you did not read.
  • Added ability to mark PM's that you already read, as unread.
  • There was one site that had the Invalid argument error, so I had to change it so if it could not read the receivers userid, it will show Unknown User ID in the To User(s) column. I have no clue why it is happening, but is seems under certain circumstances it might.
v1.4.0 Jan 18th 2014
  • Fixed a issue where users could see the PM's even if they did not have permissions, and no I am not going to tell you how they could have, for obvious reasons.
  • Added a option to rename the error log, so you can keep it out of prying eyes.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: Please do not fill this thread up with opnions on if this mod is moral, should be made, or any other hate it type stuff. If you don't like it, don't use it, it's that simple. I really don't care if you don't like it, so you telling me this has no merit. This is a thread to help those out who use the mod, not a discussion on why you feel it is a bad or un-necessary mod.

Ah, gotcha... Ok, it works that way. I thought they opened. I also found out that the "title" search, searches the body of the text also.

Look at the search results number on the screenshot.

Also, as I said above, title searches the body also. 'joey' isn't in any of those titles

Ok I'll check out the errors, for the link, you can fix it in the Navigation Manager. Only users in the groups you set in the options will be able to see / use the link.

Edit the link in the Navigation Manager and change the title to PM Spy,you probably got the mod before I corrected the product XML.

Can you PM me with a full Admin account, I am unable to replicate the errors you posted in post #5, I can try and debug it on your site since it is happening there.

Weird, I am unable to replicate the pagination issue, no matter what I select it shows the proper amount of listings.

Looking at the search issue, it seems it is supposed to search the title and message, you would think not though as the search input box is below the title, so maybe in a updated version, I could change the title heading to Title / Message
