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.

OK, the settings look good, and you're getting the date/time stamps so at least part of the mod is running. You have quite a few products installed so I'm afraid there isn't any way I'm going to be able to test all those. A couple of them have something to do with PMs but they don't sound like they should interfere. I see you have DBTech vB Optimise - I don't know what that does but I'll bet it touches a lot of things.

Still don't know.

BTW, it shouldn't change the way the PM emails are formatted. It had a problem with that in an earlier version but I put in a check so that the emails should be getting the default handling.

Okay.

No worries.

I completely understand that my situation and setup may not be idea for the mod.

In no ways does it reflect poorly on you or the mod....

Keep up the good work.

Just to ask, did you flush cache in vBOptimise? This could affect mod not changing how PMs look.

I took a look at mods you have, we have very similar setup. Of course there's difference. Can't tell why it doesn't work for you.

So you have it working with vBOptimise? That's good to know, we can eliminate that at least.

It's probably something unique to my site.

I have free version of vBOptimise and he got pro, so maybe it's some pro option, if it is linked with vBOptimise.

Appears to not be linked with VBO

I disabled VBO and it is still not formatting.

Oh yeah, sorry, but I forgot about this. I'm going to look right now to see if there's some way to add some messages to help with debugging.
