vB Version: 3.0.5 Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 29
Released: 12 Mar 2005 Last Update: Never Downloads: 7
Not Supported  

An old mini-mod by me, released now because of a request.

I am not sure if i based this on an hack by someone else or not. Did a quick search and could not find anything. If it is based on someone elses work, please contact me by PM.

Some users get irritated about the popup asking if they want a answer a requested read receipt on reading PM or if they want to request a receipt on sending a new pm.
This hack give users the possibility, to change this behaviour in their profile.

Users can access this setting from their User CP-->Edit Options as the last 2 options in the Messaging and notification section.

Users can choose the following:
- Ask - This is the default and will give the same behaviour as on an unhacked board.
- Never - There will never be a send a receipt on a request, no popup.
- Allways - There will allways be send a receipt when requested requested, no popup.

PS The usergroup setting "Can Deny Private Message Read Receipt Request" is respected by this hack.
This mean that for usergroups where this is set to Yes it will allways send a confirmation.

Good practise is to always backup files before changing them!

The only reason i can think of, why tis would work for some and not for others, would be if you are using a different style then the other users and that other style don't have templates changed.

Our style is the default vB style with just CSS changes to change colourscheme... No other style is installed on the board.

What exactly does that mean? When it is set on 'yes' it will ignore the settings you set up for it? Since... with that there I find no logic [it's still early in the morning. It takes me about half a day to fully wake up] since if you can't deny the 'read by receipt request' then why have the setting at all as you can't deny it anyways. And if you can then it will still ask even if your settings are set on never or always? Just explain that to me, please, lol.

I installed it on 3.0.7. and on sending a new pm, it works, but when you recieve it - when it is set on never it won't ask, but when it is set on always, it still asks.

Btw, also Always is spelled aLways, not Allways. I suggest you change that since.. well.. Allways is a female product in Europe. You don't want that, do you? Lmao. And the zip still has that '-=' thing, which was supposed to be changed to '=='?

I've already removed it from my production forums because no one could send a pm

If I have some time tonight or tomorrow, I'll re-hack my dev board and send you a pm from there... This isn't *absolutly* important so don't kill yourself on my account! Just I have members who prefer as few clicks as necessary so this would be good to have!

I have had quite a few requests for the very thing. Thank you, it works awesome after a couple of changes. Still need to re-upload the "-=" fix to the zip file, and I am not sure if it is a "colour/color" thing or not, but I also changed the spelling of instances of "Allways" to "Always".

Sorry if I missed it, but is this available for 3.5.1?

I know you can disable the pm confirmations via usergroups, but i'd like to be able to allow them to decide.. etc.

No this has not been ported yet. But since in 3.5 the default is not to request PM Receipts, a lot less people will have problems with it.

Does anyone know if this works with version 3.8.0? I've been looking for something like this and am really hoping it does!
