Any reason why this deviates from your PCP MOD, or is this a possible future to the PM tab format?

Actually it is planed (and almost done :)) to be included at end in the PCP, but I want it also as a stand alone mod, as there is no particular reason a program running under the PCP to not run outside it ;).

BTW, I have applied some fixes to this, I will regenerate the zip in a few minutes.

Waoww ! Great mod again !
Few questions :
Will you delete the old privmsg.php ?
Have you let the email function ?

I wait impatiently the PCP integration.

Ptirhiik, I honestly wish you made every MOD possible..

They are always so clear, to the point, and thought out.

Not to mention your support is always awesome..

Pack upgraded : take care in privmsg.php to the insert point if you have already installed the 0.0.1. No change except in this file regarding the phpBB files, just copy the new files to their places.

> Easythomas : old privmsg.php can stay fully functional (little collision regarding the user count of pm), but will only be used as a redirect point. At this time, only the popup remains, and it will be rewrote. The notification by email of a new pm is not yet implemanted, but will be. BTW, it will be slightly different :)

> both : thanks guys ;)

Sorry for my english if you don't understand me :)

Soon, you will create your own forum if you continue to do MODs like these :lol:
Counting all yours MODs, you have modified at least 50% of code of phpBB, don't ? :)
Cheer(bravo) once again.

ok for nominate him : he deserves it.

being in the mod team means less time to work on your own mods and more time spent working out what's wrong with everybody elses ;)

Ptirhiik is already a well known and well respected member of the mod community, i think the last thing he needs (with so many mods to support) is to be on the mod team.

Anyway, looks like a nice mod.

I don't see (in your screen shots) any sign of limiting the number of pms users are allowed in their various folders?

Good job Ptirhiik.

Netclectic got the point :). As long as I won't have stabilized all my stuff, I think it will be difficult to dedicate enough time to others at the necessary rate. Anyway, it doesn't stop me to help when I can ;).

> Netclectic : the box size are limited as today, but I take the screen on the outbox (I didn't think of that :)). The occupation bar stands behind the folders list on the left. The mods_settings tool will be use to allow the admin to set a size per user or for all users (not yet in the alpha stage, but it is a matter of one file to copy and 3 fields to create in the users table) :). An outbox size limit will be also settable : the code is implemented in the mod, only the phpBB parameters need to be extend to this box too.
