[DEV] PMail

Post by Uru Wolf »

MOD Title: PMail
MOD Description: Will allow users to send PM's accross to diffrent boards with a user@site type format. There would not be a "central server" like the one sugested here. It would consist of submitting to special pages, redirecting and junk.

Author Notes: I know this is in development for 3.x but I thought it would be good to have a version for 2.x. What do you think?

MOD Version: pre-alpha
phpBB Version: 2.0.22

A kinda outline of how it would work.

admins:
Say we have 2 sites, site1 and site2. The admin on site1 contacts the admin of site2 and requests to link PM systems. (built in script for this?) The 2 admins enter each others site info (name,url,ect). Users can now PM each other accross boards.

users:
1) User1 from site1 enters the PM info (the to username, message and the like)
2) User1 selects which site so send the PM to.
3) PM info is submitted to a page on the reciveing board and PM info is stored on site2's database.
4) The user2 on site2 recives the pm and user1 is sent back to site1.

Hmm...I am not sure how clear that is >_< BTW this is not the final scripting process. (It may well change)

There are still MANY users sticking with phpBB2. Until phpBB3 hits RTM / gold and has almost as many MODs and templates as phpBB2, many users will still be sticking with phpBB2, like me.
My site (along with a bunch of others') is:

for just in case you need it. ;) Thanks.

Either way, phpBB 2.0.22 will be around for a while, even when phpBB3 is out. Its like Windows XP still being used, even though Vista was released and is said to be stable. Same with PHP4 still being used (2 years after the release of PHP5... although, PHP4 is about to be diminished because PHP6 is on its way already.)

I'll be interested in this though to be real.

No progress at all. I have not even started it yet. I am still thinking about its implementation.

I can help you edit your forums at a reasonable price, send a PM if you can't get something figured out here.
