[CDB] Private Message Box Status Bars

Post by MattF »

Image Private Message Box Status Bars

Description:
The mildly poplar and highly under-rated MOD has been re-imagined for phpBB 3.1! This extension adds a graphical representation to private message boxes of the space used/remaining.

This extension is a port of my PM Box Progress Bars MOD from phpBB 3.0.x.

Features:
  • On first view progress bar has an animated loading effect
  • Works for all PM boxes (in, out, sent and custom folders)
  • Alert status - bar turns red within 20% of a full PM box
  • Does not display while folder is at 0%
  • Supports Prosilver and Prosilver-child styles
  • Supports RTL languages
Requirements:
  • phpBB 3.1.0-RC3 or higher
  • PHP 5.3.3 or higher
Repository: https://github.com/VSEphpbb/pmbars

Installation:
  • Download the latest release and unzip it.
  • Copy the entire contents from the unzipped folder to phpBB/ext/vse/pmbars/
  • Navigate in the ACP to Customise -> Extension Management -> Extensions.
  • Find Private Messages Progress Bars under "Disabled Extensions" and click Enable.

Important: This Extension can only be installed on phpBB 3.1. Do NOT use this on a live board. It should only be installed for testing purposes or just to check it out. No support will be provided.

that's a pretty good idea

Never even heard of that before but I know the limits just "sneak up" on people, the next thing they know they are being presented with a full inbox and "their options" so this is good :P

Can you make the scan lines on the danger zone light pink and make the background dark red?

Can you test it out? I just want to see what it looks like. :D

No, but you can. Play around with the CSS file. ;)

What does RC mean anyways!? I already know what Beta, Alpha, and Dev means, but this acronym remains unknown -- for me. :|

You're right Volksdevil, and 'Release Candidate' means the extension is practically ready for it's final release. Which means submission to the extension database ;) It depends on what needs to be fixed or changed otherwise you could get a RC2 ect

Done the above (copy the content in /ext/vse/pmbars), but no extension to find in the ACP.
