I think there is a small problem. When Login To User Account is used on a banned user, there is no way to read the PM's for that user. Can this be modified so admins/moderators can still read the PM's ?

There are a couple of "Read PMs" mods you'd be better off using... as this logs you into an account you'll never be able to read pm's if banned users can't see them.

To read PMs use this one: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=123166
t's for 3.6 but works fine in 3.8
Note that if a user deletes a PM you won't see it anymore.

This mod: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=204562
Creates a log of all PMs sent by users so even if they delete them you have a copy, the problem is this can grow very big on an active board.

And for ethical reasons you should of course notify your users you have the ability to read pms, but that is another discussion.

Thank you. Just one request. Please always include upgrade instructions in your first post. It will make things easier since some mods require full removal of files then uploading new files and others can just be overwritten.

Does this Mod work with version 4.x? Or is there another Mod that allows me to post or change post to another user?

I was just about to ask if there is a future for this mod on VB4...

Can you share which one?

Edit: Found it as well... If anyone is interested, its called VSa - Login To User Account.

What is the process of upgrading to 4.2 if this mod is installed?

1) Should I first upgrade, uninstall it and install the 4.x version of this mod (VSa - Login To User Account) ?

2) Uninstall it before upgrading to 4.x then install the 4.x version of this mod after upgrade of forum is complete?


Also, would uninstalling remove the the tables originally created by this mod? What are those tables?

Thanks!
