I am testing this MOD on the local PC using EasyPHP. I was able to change the Welcome PM according to my conditions and successfuly save to the database. After that I created new account and successfuly logged in. I got 1 new message that can't be read because system says 'You have 1 private message currently on hold because of full folder.' Clicking on the link 'Release all on-hold messages' doesn't work. I changed back to my admin account and sent test message to my new account. Test message was displayed but Welcome PM is still hold back.

Iyeru, this version is 1.0.0, but I am releasing, or rather, just released a newer version of it, 2.0.A. It can now be downloaded in the old WPM topic.

WhiteWolfSix, which version of WPM are you testing? And which version of phpBB3 are you using?

And for those who dont know, I just release the alpha version of my mod in the old topic found here.

Well, I have found that specific bug.

Code: Select all

INSERT INTO phpbb_config (config_name, config_value) VALUES ('wpm_send_id', '2');
The problem is that my forum has no user with id = 2, my id is 3. After correction of id, Welcome PM was finally displayed. :mrgreen:

Solution: You should add the comment to the installation text that admin should correct the ID ('wpm_send_id', '2') according to his/her real id.

Call me a noob here, but where exactly does the SQL in the MOD go to? This is one of the first few times that i've installed a Mod, and don't know where the SQL, any help would be good, thanks in advance. :D

In phpMyAdmin, you need to run it as a query.

Sorry, I shouldn't assume, I only said as such because Wolf said EasyPHP was used (which comes with phpMyAdmin, MySQL and PHP all ready to go).
  • PhpPgAdmin for PostgreSQL
  • phpMSAdmin for MSSQL
Either way, they still act similar to phpMyAdmin (See Similar Products).

In the combo box (select) choose "Welcome PM on First Login.
I can not get this to appear in the combo box no matter what I do. I followed the instructions to a T. I have had this problem with other mods i have tried to install also. They just do not appear in the combo box for adding a module.

Have you made this installation step? Copy: root/includes/functions_wpm.php To: includes/functions_wpm.php

Indeed I have ... I can not figure out why. I have not ever been able to successfully add a new module because of these issues... I have tried restoring the default phpBB3 RC4 acp_board.php and info/acp_board.php 's and get the same error.

I figured it out, It was because I was keeping backups in the same directory. (acp and acp/info)
