*** 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.
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 scene. 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) ....Pending... I'm waiting a fix from the author of Datagrid
    • 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 (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'll see that this utility will be usefull to you (at least 50 installations) I have in mind to extend it by adding some more features like:
  • Edit PM
  • Delete PM (Single or Multi action)
  • Ban User
  • .... and many more
3.- Installation
  1. Download and unzip the file
  2. Upload the content of upload folder to the directory where your vB installation is. As a check: pmspy.php must be on the same directory as global.php, forum.php etc. PM Spy is not working out of vB installation directory.
  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-> PM Spy Settings
  6. Set usergroup permissions
  7. You can access PM Spy by entering in your browser: I haven't added a new menu as I found it useless especially if you've many tabs.
6.- Copyright Link

As I said I don't count it as big mod, so I haven't added any copyright link.

Enjoy it

but in upload folder there was no "pmspy_functions.php", I uploaded one there from post 9 here but same thing.
Did re-uploaded "includes" file few times but same thing... everything else seems ok and this error does not bother me if there will be no problems with this mod or something else

Thank you.
Are you sure that you upload the file at: christeris/datagrid/includes/ directory and NOT to forum_folder/includes/ ??
Yes it's should works but you'll not see data in the "To User(s)" field.

Chris, the only way to view is by hovering the mouse over the PM title? How can I make the pop-up box stay active longer? How can I make the character limitation in the active box more?
