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: (10 votes - 4.80 average) Installs: 142
Released: 07 Feb 2009 Last Update: 22 Jan 2010 Downloads: 1034
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.

Looks like you've imported XML but didn't uploaded files. No ideas about 3.7.3.

New version uploaded, that fixes 2 bugs:

- Аnother broken link (from message list to user profiles). Sorry , added in previous version.
- Fixed access for non superadmins, who had "Read PM Log" privilegies. Those could not see mod links in menu & profiles, and could not read message texts.

Not sure if i ticked Allow Overwrite when updating, could this have caused it. ?

I don't see any errors, only my users see errors. i will try a fresh install first before edits.

Make sure, that you've uploaded file & imported XML with "allow override" settings. Other upgrate methods can produce inpredictable results.

If problem exists - tell me exactly, at wich page and wich actions and try changes above.

May be there are some mistakes, but i don't see FATAL problems at my server, right now 500 users online.

When I try to uninstall this, I get this stuck in the admincp sidebar.

"*[rcd_pm_log]*", how can I uninstall, and have all traces removed?
