So, a little something this time I had on my mind for quite a while now....

PM Auto-Reply MOD by ---==> HELLCAT <==---
This adds an "auto responder" to the PMs.

When enabled, everytime you get sent a PM the sender is automatically returned a PM containing a predefined message (editable in options).
To tell the sender you're offline for a while and answer should be expected sometime later or such....

Features:
  • Adds an auto responder (auto reply) option to the PMs
  • Can be turned ON and OFF in useroptions
  • A date can optionally be specified between automated replies are sent
  • Another user can optionally be specified to whom a copy of the recieved PM is forwarded to
  • Admin can specify usergroups not allowed to use the auto responder

Installation:
  • Import the product .XML
  • One tiny template edit:
    Open template "modifyoptions " (in "Modify Useroptions" group) and FIND THIS:

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

    AFTER it, ADD:

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

    Save the template.
Done, and enjoy!

The admin option for excluding usergroups is in "vBulletin Options" -> "Private Messaging Options" at the bottom: "Exclude usergroups from using the PM auto reply feature"

I intentionally didn't do it with usergroup permissions since that would require a .XML file to be uploaded and I wanted to stay this as a single product/plugin file

[hint]I'd also like something like this on vb.org [/hint]

Yeah, could be done.
Wouldn't even be hard to do. But why not just type it in your PM text?

In case you ever wanted to change it I guess and still use a standard message.

Instead of usergroups to exclude, why not groups to INCLUDE?

Just wondering if there is built in protection from this looping all day until pm boxes are full

User A pms UserB who sets this up

User A also has this setup which returns his to USers B

User B then begins the madness with another reply of his away message

repeat till pm box is full

I feel honored to find the first bug!

I have a usergroup say....ID #5 (administrator) and I have another usergroup say....ID #15 registered users. If I exclude ID 15 from the options, it will exclude ID #5 as well. Same with #16 & #6.....#17 &#7 and so on.

after testing the answer is that it does not loop like i thought it would

Nice hack indeed
