psssttt.

Code
				vars_modifications::instant_message_refresh
You didn't give us the declaration of that, ie

Code
		instant_message_perms => {
type => "radio",
values => [qw(none admins mods all)],
default => q!all!,
req => 0,
final_code => sub { return "FIXME"; },
},

/me wonders why you escaped the "s in

Code
    q!vars_modifications-_-instant_message_time-description! => q!Every IM includes the date and time that it was sent. If you set to "Show it", it shows that time in the IM window.!,

Brett, ubb_checkmsg.cgi has been giving me a huge error log, so I fixed it to the best of my ability.

OK, how exactly does this work? I tried to send an IM to another test user and they don't get any messages. They send to me and I don't get them. I'm guessing this might have to do with me hosting the site on a different port than port 80(because it's blocked on my ISP)? How to fix is the question... Any ideas?

Looks like your ubb_checkmsg.cgi is erroring out.

on the topline of ubb_checkmsg.cgi

change it to just:

#!/usr/bin/perl

Wouldn't a better one being only allowing specific users? hehe

The "IM" link is not showing up on my {Forum Summary} page, as well as several others. Any ideas..?

Eedited to add, that I'm not so sure it's working at all... I see the options in thew CP, and have selected them, then I tried sending a etst message, and it seems that it isn't functioning properly. frown

If the link in the header isn't showing up then you need to re-do the public_common.pl steps (As the header links are contained in that file).

There might be a collision with another hack. Can you ZIP up your /noncgi/Templates/public_forum_summary.pl file, upload it and send me a link to the ZIP file?

odd, it only works on some pages confused

There's other issues as well, when you click into a forum, the breadcrumb link back to the forum index isn't there, just the category.

I've put the original files back, so I'll attempt a re-hack of it to see if I made a mistake somewhere along the line...

I should be able to get to re-hacking it today, as I've pretty much been flat on my back since the day after Christmas, when I had a nasty rock climbing accident that screwed up my left leg & foot...

Is there a way to allow specific users a different Maximum # Of Files instead of the group option?

For example, I want member 00000387 to be able to upload 10 files rather than his group's 5 files max.

An interesting point was made by a user; If someone selects "Don't Allow anyone to IM Me" - shouldn't they have the right to actually SEND IM's revoked? Anyway or anyone willing to see if thats possible?

Thanks smile Still debating the Threads thing, maybe someday!
