vB Pager
Version: 2.0.5
vB-version: 3.0.6
Developer: WwW.UAEWEB.CoM
Install-difficulty: Easy


Okay, this is my first released hack here on vb.org, been using it in my private forum's with vB2 and finally, I've upgraded this hack for vB 3.0.1.


Introduction:
vB pager is a new refined & light paging system that enables authorized users to exchange short & quick messages amongst each other. Unlike the regular private messaging system, the paged user is guaranteed to read your message & reply to it (if you choose this option) instantly & easily.

Features:
  • You won't need to log on your CP to send a message, just click on the pager icon next to the name of the user you'd like to page! (See Screenshots)
  • Switch the paging system on or off anytime you wish!
  • Specify who gets to use the paging system by Usergroup, or even User IDs to send messages to your forum members.
  • vB Pager users can send pager messages to members of the forum and/or non-registered guests from the WhoisOnline's page.
  • Optional Anonymity: you can choose to hide your username when paging another user on the forum, & define which Usergroup or User IDs can utilize this option.
  • Restrict the number of characters in each message: you can restrict the use of this paging system to short messages only by simply typing in the maximum number of characters that can be used. The window comes in with a built-in character counter to enable the user to keep track of the characters typed.
  • Logs of all incoming and outgoing pager messages member has, can be viewed and deleted.
  • Logs of all incoming and outgoing pager messages (Deleted and Unread messages) for all members can be viewed and deleted through the Admin CP.
vB Pager 2.0.4 Updates:
- All popup windows are DHTML, so there should be no problem with popup killers.
- Logs of all incoming and outgoing pager messages (Deleted and Unread messages) for all members can be set to be Hard deleted, as a new option from vB Pager options in Admin CP.
- Many bug fixes.

vB Pager 2.0.5 Updates:
- Bug Fix: Getting blank messages from guest.

I have to turn it off, unfortunately. I've been using this hack for quite a while, and, for some reason, I, the admin, have no problem turning off the pager boxes. But others in my forums cannot. I'm not sure if it's the security settings in the browser (we compared them, and we can't seem to find what might be causing the "persistent pager box", or, if it has to do with the fact that I, as admin, can erase these boxes. For some strange reason, if I log in as one of my members, I can erase his or her persistant pager box, even though they can't. Maybe it's a cookie issue. Why I can have the pager function normally, and others in my forum can't, is beyond me.

For now, it gets turned off. Until someone can figure out what's wrong with this.

is there any support for this problem, as in theory its a cracking hack, just a shame quite a few ppl are having problems with this issue.

help????
Hmm.. we use Mozilla Firefox and IE. No problems with this hack on our board.

I think it`s an individual setting on the users pc - IE. :squareeyed:

Hmm.. a reason for this problem can be a very high selected firewall - Popup Blocker. :ermm:

I have been using this for a while now, it used to be for moderators and admin, but I have set the permission for all registered users to use it, and never have or had any complain from anyone!

I just can't figure out why it's happening to some of you guys

I installed the hack (3.0.3). Everything appeared to go perfectly. All components appear to work.

EXCEPT:

The messages never get "delivered", so the recipient never gets a pager popup. The messages show in your pager outbox, as well as in the AdminCP log, but the recipient never gets it.

What's up with that?

Strike that, they seem to be getting delivered now. Is the delivery of these messages tied to a scheduled task at all?

Also, is it possible for you to insert code to allow replying to a reply? That would be a great addition.

This is odd - the " marks in pager messages are getting translated into the HTML command "

Hmmm......

One more thing: The users woulod like a selectable x-y position for the popups, rather than hard-coded. One user (using IE6) can't use the pager because for some odd reason, the popup appears almost off his page, and he can't drag it.

Also, if PERSON-A has PERSON-B on Ignore, can PERSON-B page PERSON-A? If so, that should be addressed as well.

The text-entry box is not always clearing for a new incoming message. It gets filled with the last reply you made to someone else...

I seem to be having a problem. The link to the inbox and stuff on the forum home isn't working right. It will pop up but it will say "no page can be displayed" or something like that. Then I refreshed it and found out it was going to the wrong url.

$vboptions[bburl]/pager.php makes it go to: http://127.0.0.1/forum/forum/pager.php

If I take out the $vboptions[bburl] part it will go to: http://127.0.0.1/pager.php

If I make it /pager.php it goes makes it http://127.0.0.1/forum/pager.php but it still doesn't bring up anything but that page can't be displayed error. Does anyone know how I can fix this?

Thanks

Dark Shogun

If you get "Page not found", then your php file is in the wrong place. It should be in your FORUM directory with your other user-level vB files.

even though its one of the best hacks ive seen, i still think theres a few liddle things need ironing out.

ive checked, and re checked the installation, and the IE shutdown is STILL a problem.

as there are plenty of other ppl in this thread that have commented on it, it is an important thing that needs sorting.

EXCELLENT HACK THOUGH.
