Introduction:
vB Pager is a text-based instant messaging system over your community between members. Users can exchange short & quick messages amongst each other. Unlike the regular private messaging system, the paged user is guaranteed to read your message & reply to it (if you choose this option) instantly & easily.

By going to your "vB Pager Buddies", you'll be able to see which of your friends are currently online and offline, and be able to send them a pager message. Adding people to your buddy list also allow you to send pager messages to multiple forum members at the same time. You may add any member of the forums to your buddy list by clicking the icon next to their names in the vB Pager Online Members Page or Clicking the Manage Buddies Link to add/remove members into your list.
    • vB Pager Ignore List ‘pop-up’ window lists are used for those people who's messages you wish not recieve from.
    • Received Pager Messages are Draggable Inline Popups.
    • Sending a message opens up a small window where you can type in message to be sent.
    • Optional Anonymity: you can choose to hide your username when paging another user on the forum, & define which Usergroup can utilize this option.
    • The window comes in with a built-in character counter to enable the user to keep track of the characters typed.
    • Logs of all incoming and outgoing pager messages ‘Inbox/Sent Items’ member has, can be viewed and deleted.

nota: uae is talking about CPanel, but it is UserCP!

also... it is working properly, have tested it...

btw, as you have more control with vb Pager than with the PM system, you can deactivate this last one and only work with vb Pager...

WOW thats great! Does this allow real-time chat like ICQ..?

I think of a PopUp that comes up once you have a new message in which you can reply to that message and things like that.

I'll just give it a try and see

it is kinda like a realtime chat MrNase ... the only detail is that it doesn't show the last messages read/writen.... i suggested that to UAE long time ago... as it have now history in the system, i suppose it will be easy for a coder to add that feature...

for the popup you talk about, it IS actually that... you receive a popup when you receive a message.. the popup is activated by AJAX... if your browser does not allow it, the popup will show when you load a new page.

Question

Great add-on. It's working fine, but i dont have the "Pager messages" shown here http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...chmentid=40497

// edit: excuse me, it shows, if the user has the permission to use the pager! But the link does not work on my vbadvanced Homepage, just on the forum page. can you fix this or give me a hint?


And also a question: It only shows up the pager messages, if you reload a page, correct? Mine does so. Only when i reload a page. Is this the way it should work?

Thanks for that !

Hey Wachtmeister!

I can't confirm the first one, I can see the statistics.
Second thing: Setup the extension via the vBPage options and give 'vB Pager AJAX Check Period' a value. I set it to 30 (30 seconds).


Some things I noticed:
The popup is misaligned with Opera.. It's too far down on the website.

We need some confirmation after a message is send. When I click the button to send a new pager message to user X and the new window comes up, there's no confirmation at all when the message is send. It only switches back to the list of online users and at first I wasn't sure if the message was send or not.
