A page to display all the messages in all the groups a user has joined.

I have found on my forums, that it is hard to keep up with new messages in your social groups. You have to go to each individual group and see if there is anything new. So, I created this page to list all the messages in your social groups in date descending order.

You will need to create two new templates and upload one file. edit: The two templates and the phrases for this modification are now included in a product.

The users may either view All My Groups and see the messages from all their groups in the list, or they may select one of the groups they belong to and see just the messages in that group. I used the option vboptions > Message Searching Options > Maximum Search Results to Return to set maximum results shown.

Version History:
1.0 2009-02-12:
- initial release by Lynne at vbulletin.org

1.2 2009-03-12:
- fully phrased, templates now in product to import.
- added option to view only messages from single group
- used vboptions > Message Searching Options > Maximum Search Results to Return to set maximum results shown
- cached all bbcode templates
- AFTER INSTALL OF PRODUCT, YOU WILL HAVE TO REVERT THE TWO TEMPLATES (socialgroups_messagelist and socialgroups_messagelistbits) IF YOU HAD INSTALLED THIS PREVIOUSLY (or else you will still be using the original templates)


Please mark INSTALL if you find this useful.

Add? Since it's a totally new page, you don't get added queries to the page. But, it currently has the potential of one small query per message to get the Discussion Name. If you don't want the Discussion name listed, you may comment out the following code in messagelist.php:

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

And then take out these lines in 'socialgroups_messagelistbits':

Unhappy

This sounds exactly like what I need, however the instructions in the download zip are unclear for me.

You say we have to create 2 templates but your txt file says only 1 as far as I can see. Maybe I'm missing it. However my greater concern is; How do you actually go about creating a template. I haven't the first idea. Where do I upload the template to? Please give me a little help. Thanks.

The text file has instructions to create a template called "socialgroups_messagelist" and a template called "socialgroups_messagelistbit". So, two templates.

To create a template, go to your Style Manager, find the style you want this to be used in (could be multiple styles which means you may have to create them in a couple places depending on how you have your styles set up) and select Add New Template from the dropdown.

To get all message is good, but I think it would be better to get all new unread messages. Would it be possible to change it that way ?

By the way, thanks for this work

Sorry, I doubt I'll be adding that. The problem on our forum was that users would read the forum, select Mark As Read and then never know if they had social group messages. So, I made this list for them to be able to see all the messages.

Hi Lynne,

I've become a huge fan of your social group hacks. This one works seamlessly too but the question is how do members link to this? Should there be a link somewhere on the Social Groups landing page?

An unrelated question:
Is there a way to make social groups members list look like the three-columned friends list on the profile page i.e - profile.php?do=buddylist?

I added the link under the Community Links dropdown. This is what I have in place of just the Social Groups link in that dropdown:

The "Your Group Messages" is the link for this page.

It appears that the messages are not grouped by which group they are in, just by order of posting? So if I am in 5 groups with 3 discussions each, I am going to have 15 different discussion threads showing their posts all mixed up?

What I was hoping is that it groups by group and then discussion, perhaps with a link to collapse each discussion/group. i.e.:

Group 1 (Collapsible)
-- Discussion 1 (Collapsible)
---- Post
---- Post
---- Post
-- Discussion 2 (Collapsible)
---- Post
---- Post
---- Post

Group 2 (Collapsible)
-- Discussion 1 (Collapsible)
---- Post
---- Post
---- Post
---- Post
---- Post
-- Discussion 2 (Collapsible)
---- Post
---- Post

Group 3 (Collapsible)
-- Discussion 1 (Collapsible)
---- Post
---- Post
-- Discussion 2 (Collapsible)
---- Post
---- Post
---- Post
---- Post
---- Post

etc... Can you describe to me how the mod lists the posts?

Thank you!
