Quote Post in PM

=================
Info:
=================


This product adds a new option in user's popup menu "Quote this post in PM to *username*".
This option passes to new personal message (PM): post's text, username of the post, post id, as well as the post title (if there is one), or thread title (if there is no post title).
It can also add image-link to 'postbit' and 'postbit_legacy' templates.
And even replace in popup menu the URL and the phrase for option "Send a private message to *username*" with its own phrase.

Futures of this hack:
  • There is option to enable/disable hack.
  • The hack is fully translatable.
  • The hack can update popup menu automatically using hook $template_hook[postbit_user_popup]. You can disable this one.
  • The hack can update postbit and postbit_legacy templates automatically using hook $template_hook[postbit_controls]. You can disable this one.
  • The hack can replace in popup menu the URL and the phrase for "Send a private message to" option with its own.
  • The hack uses its own template "qpipm_quote". You can change it as you like. The variables: "$originalposterandpostid", "$originalposter", "$originalpostid" and "$pagetext" are used in that template.
  • There is option "Automatically Quote Post / Thread Title". Setting this to "Yes" will automatically fill the title of new PM with either the thread or the parent post title, prefixed by 'Re: '.
  • You can change 'Re: ' for both threads' and posts' PMs. Search for phrases 'qpipm_re_thread' and 'qpipm_re_post'.
  • You can insert the template of this hack manually anywhere you want in user's popup menu by using "$qpipm". Read "Notes:" below.
  • You can insert the template of this hack manually anywhere you want in postbit by using "$qpipm_postbit". Read "Notes:" below.
  • You can translate this hack into your native language. Search for Phrases Containing "qpipm_".
  • You can set your own PM's title for both threads' and posts' PMs. Search for phrases 'qpipm_own_title_thread' and 'qpipm_own_title_post'.
  • Option "Use Post's Number in PM's Title". Setting this to "Yes" will use post's number instead of thread's or post's title in PM's title field where avaliable.
  • Option "Use Thread's Title even if there is Post's Title". Setting this to "Yes" will always fill the new PM's title field with thread's title, even if there is post's title.
  • Option "Trim Post's Text" allows you to trim the post's text been quoted to new PM.
  • And other great options.

Use this version only with 3.8.0 or greater.

Enjoy!

Really you can use this one with 3.7.x and 3.6.8+

To do so you have to:
  • Open *.xml file.
  • Find:

    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

  • Replace with:

    Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
    Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I'm getting the double in the popup menu. Yes I did check the templates for $qpipm_postbit, and $qpipm and they were not there. TIA.

On Edit:

Both the pervious version and this new version were installed. So, this product does not write over the old version rather it add this version.

Fungsten, yes, I know.
I decided not to implement auto uninstall of old version for this product for some reasons.

Sworm, yes, just read the note below and uninstall old one, but don't forget to write down you settings for this product.

That is why I wrote in the first post:
=================
How to Update:

Any version -> v3.8.105
  • Write down your settings for this product in "AdminCP > vBulletin Options > Quote Post in PM"
  • Uninstall old version
  • Import the product
  • Set your settings back

I think a good idea would also be to first install the upgrade then uninstall the older version. Usually with uninstalls all the settings get erased then everything has to be reset.

Thanks for mod. Could you add option to use the same menu item in popup menu? I mean, the same place, the same text, but with link changed to add quote.
