Hack Version: 1.0.4
vB-version: 3.5.x
Developer: msgotit
Install-difficulty: Easy

Description:
Allows specified users to send a Private Message to certain groups of people.

This is basically the same as the hack created by UAE and in talking with him I have posted this here.

Super Private Message will give you the convenience and ability to provide many different options for sending mass private messages to users by any one you choose to assign this task to based on Conditionals (if):

User's Usergroup is Y.
User's has posts greater than x posts.
User's has posts less than x posts.
User's Join Date is After (yyyy-mm-dd).
User's Join Date is Befor (yyyy-mm-dd).
User's Last Activiy is After (yyyy-mm-dd).
User's Last Activiy is Befor (yyyy-mm-dd).
User's Last Post is After (yyyy-mm-dd).
User's Last Post is Befor (yyyy-mm-dd).

Settings in the Admin CP:

Specify who gets to use the Super Private Message System by Assigning their User Names or User IDs.
Specify the Secondary and Primary usergroup they can send a mass pm to.
Select what usergroup to be visible for selection(s).
Select to have the assignee change his identity when sending.
Control what fields to be visible for each assignee.
List All assignee, delete/edit them.

History:

1.0.1 BETA
Fixed bug in xml
No longer show to whom the message will be sent (if you like that don't upload the superpm.php file. If your copy is working there is really no need to upgrade, there are no major changes yet - hopefully soon there will be!

1.0.2 BETA
Changed wording in Template - Makes more sense
Changed location of SuperPM link in admincp - Contained in the "User" group
Changed insert to fix/help fix the problem with overloading the server
Added option for admin to show to whom message will be sent

1.0.3
Fixed bug causing a php error * Thanks for the report Fofer
Fixed bug saving message to sent items even if you don't send it.

1.0.4
Added Email on pm - WARNING this will most likely not work if sending to over 500 people (probably ok up to 1000) although may be server intensive. Also, to do that you will likely have to change the max number or pms in superpm.php file from 500 to 1000.
Misc. changes as requested.

To upgrade, upload files and import the new product, click on overwrite and you will be set.
-------------------------------------

PLEASE REMEMBER TO BACKUP BEFORE YOU BEGIN!

This has been tested and seems to be working fine. If you find any errors please let me know!

Just out of curiosity, the 3.0.x version killed my server load when pm'ing 1000 or more...

Does this one control the throttle or does it still hammer the system?

SnowBot,

I am not sure I follow what you are asking, it allows you to send a PM to people that meet the conditions that follow what you quoted: in a specific usergroup, join date after a certain date, last post date after/before a certain date, does that answer your question?

tokenyank,

This is something that I haven't been able to try, I am using vBulletins datamanager where as before UAE was doing the inserts in the code, so I don't know what will happen. I don't have that many members, so I can't really test it. Right now it is set up to only allow a max of 1000 PMs (which is pretty easy to change if you need to). If you had a test board you could try it on I would like to know. Also, I am hoping to add a way in the future to have it send them out in batches, 500 at a time, I know that was requested before, I am just not sure the best way to go about doing that. So honestly I don't know if it will kill your server. Sorry :ermm:

Watson,

Once you have installed this mod, you need to set someone up to be able to use it in the admincp. Then, assuming you made the template edit, when they click on Send Private Message they will have a link in the upper right corner to send a super private message. If you look at the screen shots at the link two posts up it will probably help, sorry I didn't include those originally.

Did you select yes to at least one of the options in the admincp, show usergroups, send as other etc.? If you didn't it won't show up, even if you selected certain usergroups. Does this help? Let me know.

Edit: I ask this because this is what the template uses to decide if they have access to the super PM if none of the options are clicked (or the spmoptions = 0 then it won't show up.

Watson,

What happens if you just go to yoursite.com/forum/superpm.php. Does it take you to the page and allow you to see it?
