  • That you must know :

    With the agreement of t_backoff, we have decided to continue her MOD development, which was interrupted on September 02, 2011.
    This MOD, based on the Mod Messages MOD, seemed to interest many users here, so we have chosen to revise it completely.
    We hope the users who use it will update quickly, because many SQL queries are inside the loops.
    This has for effect to increase highly the consumption of the server resources.

    In order to explain you why it is important, here is a summary and a very simple calculation:
    By default, phpBB3 displays 10 posts per page of a topic. This page runs between 11 and 14 SQL queries in each load.
    If the MOD, in a prior version of this one, you can add 10 additional SQL queries (one per displayed post).
    That will make you a minimum of 21 SQL queries executed, even if no post contains a message of moderation.

Thanks for the new version. I was wondering when you were going to bring this back up. :D

Two issues I've noticed:
  • In topic review, the MODERATION_MESSAGE_FROM language string is missing.
    EDIT: let me rephrase that - the language string shows, but it shows the language var, not the actual text.
  • Only moderation messages not allowed? I know this was in the version I posted.
Great work. Thanks again for picking up my sloppy coding skills. :D

Excellent mod!

One of those features you wish was in core code.

This is an awesome idea and saves me having to edit a user post myself and locking it from being able to be edited. I can also with this MOD give users a bit more leeway with editing posts.

Thank you very much for picking up this mod :P

I was thinking about developing a similar mod, but my idea was to use a separate table for moderator messages, which will have the benefit that
  1. more than one moderator can give a message to a post without overwriting or changing previous message
  2. messages can still exist even when the original post is deleted
  3. moderators can have a internal discussion on users post without showing it to the user (having a flag saying "only internal diskussion")

Nice to see this modification back in development again. It is a nice tool, better than a bbcode for mods ;) I'm gone test it out

Good thing this mod is in the process of becoming a formally released mod.
I am already using the original mod messages mod more than one and a half year on my public board after adding the capabilities already mentioned here (bbcode, smilies, allow only mod message in post). It is being used by great appreciation of the moderator team.

I am considering a switch over to this mod after it is formally released.

In fact, this is one of the features i would expect to be in the core software of a bulletion board. ;)
