I dont see bbcode options in ACP while sending mass PM. It wud be a great addon.
Also, in ACP it wud be a gud option if we can select certain users to send PM to. Like we shud be able to select people depending upon the number of posts they have made .. say more than 10,20 etc. searcheable or even 0 so that we can sent PM to new commers only.

While sending Mass PM from ACP to all users, I got this error.
Could not insert/update private message sent info.

DEBUG MODE

SQL Error : 2013 Lost connection to MySQL server during query

INSERT INTO phpbb_privmsgs (privmsgs_type, privmsgs_subject, privmsgs_from_userid, privmsgs_to_userid, privmsgs_date, privmsgs_ip, privmsgs_enable_html, privmsgs_enable_bbcode, privmsgs_enable_smilies, privmsgs_attach_sig) VALUES (1, 'Using NIMs forum', 2, 423, 1163843796, '', 0, 1, 1, 0)

Line : 99
File : admin_mass_pm.php


Why is this so ?

I don't know enough about the email system to be of any real help. All I can suggest is checking to see if your smpt settings are correct, and ask your host if mass emailing is allowed.


I'm not sure which error you refer to but I got an error message pointing at emailer.php and line 234 (I think it was... Unfortunately I don't remember the exact error message). What is that about? Is it likely to be server restriction as mentioned regarding the other error?

I'm sorry to say I don't know. I haven't been running my board as of late and had long ago removed the test forum this MOD was installed on.

Your best option is to contact the MOD author (first post).

Hi.
When quoting a reply in PM is there a way to enable the extra + for names ?

Or am i missing something.

Nice mod by the way :)

Thanks

ok, checked with webhost and was told there is a limit on using mail() function, limit being 50 every 30 seconds. so a way around this would be to slow down the script a bit. I don't think I'm the only one having this kind of limit, so might be good idea to somehow incorporate this to the mod. I'm gonna add something to the mod i a few days time, but if someone would be interested to put something together before that, then I would be very interested in having a look at the result.

finally, does someone know if phpbb3 will have a function like this built in?

an update:

I had a closer look and it seems that only about 120 pm:s were sent, when I was targetting a group of 170. and out of those 120, only a maximum of 50 got their email motification.

why not everyone received their pm, that I don't know. however, it seems that this mod need to take into account a possible limit to the amount of emails that can be sent in one go. I don't think I'm unique in having this kind of limit imposed on me...

This is a great solution. I have a couple minor issues and was wondering if you could help.

1) During the install I couldn't find the following:

Code: Select all

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

#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------
#
	<td width="100%" class="row2"><span class="genmed">{MESSAGE_TO}</span></td>

#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]----------------------------------
#
	<td width="100%" class="row2"><span class="genmed">
	<!-- BEGIN recipients -->
			{recipients.R_USERNAME}, 
	<!-- END recipients -->
	</span></td>
				
#
2) Without the above being changed, I attempted to move on and I am experiencing the following issue. There appears to be an extra box appearing below the username field (shown below). I also receive an error on the page. The error is:
Line: 407
Char: 1
Error: 'Element' is undefined
Code: 0
URL: http://mydomain.com/forum/privmsg.php?mode=post

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated - TIA

For your first issue, since you are using a template other than subSilver, have you tried a partial find, e.g. look for {MESSAGE_TO}?

I simply didnt up the postingbody.tpl - that removed the error and stopped the ability of members sending mass pms.

I only wanted it for admin to send mass pms.

EDIT - Just uninstalled it! When I checked only half of the forum got the PMs!

Does anyone know the status of this MOD? Is [RC2] bug free?

Is support for it dead? The author's last post in this topic was 6 months ago (Oct 30) and his profile indicates his last visit to the forums was in January.

It worked find for me at the time.
I have uninstalled this mod in the meantime as my users were simply not using it. I did keep the Mass PM ACP Mod though and still use that.
