Hiyas,

It's simple a notification hack for pending messages.

That is, if a message in your board is pending for moderation, Admin (or Mod or any users you specified) will be notified via email or private message (or both) about the pending message. This will work for both new threads or new replies.

This is requested, released and tested in this thread in the REQUESTS forum and I publish it as I am asked to do so :glasses:

I doubt you'll need a screenshot but see the message below if you do. Hack is very likely to work with all versions >2.0.3. It's very easy to apply (~2 mins.).

If you install it, please click install, thank you..

Enjoy! \\=^))

Sounds like a good hack, if it wasn't for the fact that I don't moderate posts on my forum, I would install

That usually means somebody selected post a poll and then didn't do the poll.

Cool hack. I have some semi-trolls under moderation. Now I get an email when they post. Thanks.

Odd Problem

Hi Logician,

I installed the hack, and it worked perfectly for a couple of days. Then I no longer got e-mails (the option I selected) when new messages entered the moderator queue.

I looked at newreply.php and newthread.php, and the hacked code looks OK in both. I also sent myself e-mail through the software listing of my profile, and that worked (so the problem isn't that the e-mail utility is generally nonfunctional).

Any suggestions?

Regards,

Steve Price

Yep, odd.. Let's try to understand what's happening, so can you plz set the hack to send BOTH pm and email (or ONLY pm) to see if it's working or not?

I guess the problem you mentioned is not hack related, but let's try to trace it anyway..Btw have you checked if your server can send (not receive) email via sendmail or not? For example do you get email notifications for thread subscribtions?

Regards,

Hi Again,

Sendmail works, and PM notification works. I'm going to remove the hack, then reinstall it and see what happens. I'll post the outcome here. These damned machines can smell fear, and it knows that I don't know what I'm doing when I muck around with the .php files.

Regards,

Steve Price

Hi Logician,

I deleted the hack, then reinstalled it. Now it works perfectly again.

Do I understand any of this? Do I really care, as long as it works?

Many, many thanks for being so generous with your time.

Steve Price

i hate to be bumping old hacks like this. i've just applied this, and it works well, (thanks Logician ), but for some reason, i'm getting pm notifications when ever any user posts a poll. any ideas why? is there any fix for this by any chance? Also, when I do recieve the PM, it does not update, and comes up as being read as an old PM, thanks for any support, this has come in very useful.

This is because technically threads with polls are moderated before poll is posted. You can fix it like this:
In the hack code you applied to newthread.php, replace line:

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

AS

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

This will make sure hack will ignore threads with polls. However remember that if you apply this, you may have posts that stay as moderated but you get no notifications. (If user choose to send a poll, but didn't when poll screen loaded)

as for fixing message read find:

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

and replace it as:

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