Great mod, I've really missed this function on the forums. I have one problem though... I can see the message I'm replying to fine at first, but if I preview my message the message I'm replying to disappears. Is there a way to fix this? On my board a lot of people tend to write long private messages and then the preview is a nice feature. Thanks again though for a great mod!

Cool, I'll check this out and edit the privmsg.php file as stated.

Edit: I assume you are editing line 1536 (I think that's what it was). Damn, vi is not working so well with Windows XP's "telnet" terminal. I'll have to FTP this .php file over and try my luck w/ notepad/wordpad to implement this mod.

Hey just a quick question :)

How would i put the box OVER the reply text area ? so people can see the text area and the previous message at the same time ?

I did think i could just reduce the size of the text area but thought be easier at the top :)

I seem to be able to put it everywhere BUT the top when i try :)

You'll have to make a few changes to it. Do the following:

Code: Select all

# 
#-----[ OPEN ]------------------------------------------
# 
privmsg.php

#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------
# 
				$template->assign_var_from_handle('TOPIC_REVIEW_BOX', 'pm_review');

#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]------------------------------------------
# 
				$template->assign_var_from_handle('PM_REVIEW_BOX', 'pm_review');

# 
#-----[ OPEN ]------------------------------------------
# 
templates/subSilver/posting_body.tpl

#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------
# 
<!-- END privmsg_extensions -->

#
#-----[ AFTER, ADD ]------------------------------------------
# 
{PM_REVIEW_BOX}
That will put it above the posting box/table. :wink:

Confusing as hell with all the custom tags, shortcuts and all that stuff :(

I havent been learning PHP for too long, i'm primarily a Perl and VB programmer, and we (Perl and VB Folks) dont have all the options that PHP has, and I can read straight PHP code, but the PHPBB code for the most part confuses the hell out of me, amazes me that i figured out enough to modify existing mods to work how i want heheeh.

Kind of cool that used to be requie 400 lines of perl code can be done in 10 lines of php tho :)

I'm make that change later, I think i'm going to change the size of the textbox and move it to the top as well :)

Cool :) awesome mod :) makes things move smoother :)

1 other thing tho which is just personal preference :)

I have a link to the forum index over the top of the private message, that says "Forum Name - Forum Index", and at the moment its layout is Preview Box, Link to Index, Reply Box, Any idea's on how i can move the Preview box UNDER the Link box or indeed the link box OVER the preview box :)

i'm sorry, but it isn't working for me, I'll guess I'll have to get the commands working for the Profile Control Panel, cause I don't see this mod working in combination with the Profile Control Panel for me as is is now, (all easymod installed btw, without any errors!), so if someone could help me with that, I would be very happy!!

Is there an easy way to add in the original poster's avatar into the PM review area?
