Is it possible to export PM's in mass?

Post by Lord Raiden » Sun Dec 21, 2008 4:23 am

Just wondering if there was an easy way to dump a PM box to a single file of some kind in case someone wanted to backup their PM's. I'm certainly one who'd like that feature, as I hit my PM limit pretty quickly on a regular basis, and up till now, the only way to resolve that was to dump the entire box, or spend hours sorting PM's. If there's an easy way to dump PM's to a text file or something similar, that'd be great.

Export PMs to XMLThis is the only MOD for phpBB2 I could fine.
This is a built in feature in phpBB3.
