What is it?
----------------------------
This mod arranges quotes in a PM to be in a "conversational" order instead of being nested. This solves the problem of displaying deeply-nested quotes. This mod also has an option to add a date/time stamp to quoted PMs.

Note: I'm marking this "beta" because it hasn't been tested very much. If you try this, please let me know if you have any problems or would like it to work differently.

Also, I'm not much of an html/css person - this mod mostly provides variables which can be checked in the template, and a bare-bones css file. If anyone comes up with css for a better looking format and wants to share it, please do (and maybe I'll put it in a later version).

(vb3 version here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=292996)


Installation:

----------------------------
Just import the product XML file from the Product Manager. This doesn't change stored PMs in any way (unless you enable the date/time stamp - see below), so you can uninstall or disable the product at any time to go back to the original PM template.

If you'd like to customize the format, you can edit the kh99_pm_quote, kh99_pm_quote_bit, and/or the kh99_pm_quote.css templates.

If you want to add date/time tags to PM quotes, go to the adminCP options under "Private Messaging Options" and set "Add Date and Time to Quotes" to yes. Note that if you later uninstall this mod, any messages quoted while this option was on will still contain a date/time tag, but it will display after the name in a default format and timezone. If this is a concern, it's probably better that you don't enable this option.

Also note that the date/time option only adds the timestamp to newly quoted messages - it will not add one to quotes in existing messages.

Hi kh99, small problem with the mod. The PM e-mail notification now is formatted incorrectly. Any idea why?

This is awesome - Exactly what I was asking for a while back and it's delivered way above expectation - Thanks very much kh99

One thing - Is it possible to amend it so that your part in convo's are white and the replies are blue or whatever (colours replaceable depending on the theme you're using) or is that just silly?

Are you using the latest version? That was a problem with the original release but I believe it's been fixed with the latest update.

You can do that. If you look in the kh99_pm_quote.css template (under CSS Templates), you can see there are classes for different cases like that. So you can set a backgroud-color for .kh99_quote_mine and another for .kh99_quote_sender (or maybe .kh99_quote, which will apply to all others).

I'm not really a theme person, so one thing I'm not sure about is what happens if you modify the templates then go to upgrade (I suppose I could just try it an dfind out). It might be a better idea to put the CSS changes you want in additional.css since I know that never gets overwritten.

Is there any easy or known way to hide the quoted text in the input field?

In other words, display the entire conversation Facebook/Ajax style?

Apart from that, cool addon - thank you

I don't understand - I'm afraid you'll have to explain it to me like I'm a complete idiot, maybe with pictures .

Just what I was looking for, and for so long!

This mod was really promising and it's got a very good idea and coding.

There is just one bug, it kind of eats some of the replies and then the quotes lose formatting sometimes.

Has anyone else reported this? I wonder if it's because of any other mod I have of if it's this mod specifically.
