This sends a Private Message to any LOGIN name (not Publicly Displayed Name) that you type in. I disable the ability to use Publicly displayed names on my board.

Send PM to any login name

As it stands, this won't work for everyone because it depends on login names. However, it might provide the ispiration for someone to create a hack that will use Public names.

No demo is available because I run a private board with strict membership requirements. However, this is a screen shot of the entry form.

[Linked Image]

It adds this to the my_profile template. When the submit button is pushed, it calls

ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=private_message&u=xxxxxx

where xxxxx is the member number of the desired board member.

This runs very well on my board - 6.04d

Amy

p.s. A version is down below that will send a PM to any member number.

I think it's imposible since more than 1 user can use the same public name, but maybe you can make a list of numbers/login names of the same public name, and then the user can choose which one is it.

Great Job Amy. I'm using the Member Number one and there were quite a few bugs. I think I've found and fixed them all. I'll post by bugfixes here once I get them all doc'd.

URL:

[edit] URL gone. Look below for Amy's version which has my fixes [/edit]

Fixes: * made templates comply with look UBB 6.04x template styles (choice of colours)
* fixed incorrect ultimatebb.cgi call
* made it so hack number #3 on ubb_sendpms.cgi is no longer required
* now checks if no member number was entered
* simplified redirect code

To Do: Comply with Wordlet module

Qasic,
I'll try to get off my lazy rear this evening and do the wordlets.

You forgot to put your name in there as co-author.

Burn, I haven't had a chance to look at Qasic's improvements yet. In the original, it's just a matter of editing the URL in the file ubb_getnumber.cgi.

i'm sure leshrac wouldn't mind if you made a "temporary" one... =) Those impatient ones of us who are worthless and don't know how to code can't wait forever for such things!


also, i can't seem to find where to turn off the ability of users to change their PDN...

Amy, it`s nothing I can change in Ubb_getnumber.cgi or Ubb_sendpm.cgi. (I think)

It`s to do with the Anchor.
i.e If you send a PM from a topic then it`ll take you back to that topic.

I`m lost on how to change it.....Please help !

Try it if you want to see....

I`ve provided some temp login details for my board....feel free to send any test PMs to myself !

Has any written a script to make a linkable list of all the members registered on the board. What I would love to do is, Have a send Private Message link on my site that when you click on it, it displays a list of everyone's Login name. Then you could click on the persons Login name and it would take you to the Send Private Message page. It sounds easy to do (if you know perl). That way people don't need to find a post by the person that want to message and they don't need to know the exact login name of the person. They can just browse the list and click on the name. If it was sorted alphabetically that would be a plus. Basically it would be a front end for this mod.

Romulus, there is a quick and dirty memberlist generator script in the beta forum. You can adapt that.

Burn,
I don't know why it's doing that for you. Mine is working properly on my board. (But I only have my original version installed, not qasics yet.)

I am in the middle of hacking up my 6.04d. I will play with qasics and mine combined and see what happens.

I have added wordlets to the both versions and modified them so that they can be used in combination with no modifications necessary.

The member number hack was co-authored by qasic, and can be downloaded here:

My server is down for many people today. Should be back up tomorrow. (domain config. screw up)

Try this:

http://216.147.14.53/sendpm_1.zip (login name)

and

http://216.147.14.53/sendpm2_1.zip (member numver)

Is it ready for finished? I believe so, but I am waiting until a few people have run the latest versions on different platforms before I declare it gold.

There is a possible way to make a script to send to public name.

Thinking outloud, I would write a script that would go through the memberlist and get the public names. This script would create a hash table that would map public names to member numbers.

The board would also need to be hacked so that as new members join, they are mapped to the hash table, and if members change their public names, or if members are deleted, the hash table is updated.

Then, it's simply a matter of getting the member number from the hash, and calling the redirect.

It's more involved than I want to mess with at this point, but that's how I would do it.

seems t'me like this is workin SUPER fine! (im lovin it!)

any chance of an auto-installer? (either "big name" -- shw, or mhx)

also... perhaps you and "freetv" could combine hacks, and make a "super" PM hack?

(i refer to this hack, here )

thanks!!
