That doesn't make sense to me. I don't have any code to do that, related to uninstalling.
Maybe you deleted that role by mistake sometime in the past and the way the extension system works relies on you still having it.
Try solving it by creating that role by yourself and try again.

I send you a github pull request for German Language pack files.

After waiting for several years I had to install the feature, even if not finished as of yet. So far it works.

Finally I have one central sub-forum where all the users can start topics with their private messages that only the admins can read. And the whole PM mess is hopefully over.

Made the corrections.
I closed and reopend the Pull request, because couldn't figure out, if my corrections were in the request or not.

Hi, first thanks so much for an excellent extension that enables a private discussions option.

I'm currently testing this extension, it works perfectly well but after installing this extension the "Search user’s posts" on users profile page reports "No suitable matches were found.". Do i have to tweak any settings or is this a regular restriction that applies as default and cant be reset?

Extension Version: 1.0.5
PHP Version 7.0.33
Board version: 3.2.5

Best regards,
Helios

For your case, either the users do not have access to those topics or the filtering was excessively eager and also filtered out results that should have been valid.
I don't really know what the problem was, with that much information.

Hi, thanks for your reply.

Users do have access to those topics and are able to view all the regular forums and read posts with both extension enabled and disabled, but are unable to search when the extension is enabled but able to search when extension is disabled.

Looks like either i need to uninstall and reinstall extension or tweak some settings that stops forum wide search.

Will keep testing and shall update if im able to resolve this issue. Meanwhile do forward me your suggestions or questions if any.

Thanks.
