Title: [Done 1.4.1 & 1.5.1] View IM By Member (Admin)
Post by: Jack.R.Abbit on October 08, 2002, 10:04:55 AM
This mod allows the forum admin to view the IM Inbox and Outbox of any member.  While this may have some privacy issues, as the mod requestor pointed out, its his server and his forum... deal with it.  The Admin can not modify the IM in any way.  I am not likely to be making many updates to this mod unless there is a brilliant addition or major bug.

viewimbymember (http://www.netamorphic.com/mods.by.jack/) - Updated 04/22/2003

Updates:
03/03/2003 - Updated for 1.5.1RC1
03/24/2003 - Updated for 1.5.1RC45
04/22/2003 - Updated for 1.5.1 Final

Enjoy!

I should mention that be sure to back up your data before applying this, or any, mod.  As it is still in beta, I can offer no guarantee.  Everything I post works fine in my YaBB installation but your milage may vary.

In order to view the PMs, you have to go into your Admin section, click on 'View PMs my Member', and from there it's self explanitory.

As for that error you're getting, only thing I can say is make sure you've got 1.4.1/1.5.1RC1, or modify the file manually.

Hey, got this installed today, and works well.  I do have a suggestion however.

The method that this uses is great.  (Being able to look up the inbox and outbox of a member you chose.).  However, it would be really nice if you could see ALL PM's sent in a list.  It could extend several pages...

I used to use PHPBB and had a PM Viewer mod on it... it would have a table and across the top it would have "Sender, Reciever, link, etc".  Then when you click on the link, a pop up of the message would appear.  

It would be awesome if this could be added, NOT REPLACED, as I like how this works too.  

Adding this makes looking up new PM's by ANY user easier.  

Your thoughts?  ???

Glad to see you got it installed alright.  As for the suggestion, it is a pretty decent one, but I don't really have the time to add that feature.  I kind of see that as an entirely different mod that I don't care to tackle at the moment.

I have not tested it on 1.5.1 final but since it really just adds two lines to source files and then adds a whole new source file for itself, I suspect that it will work.

As for compatibilty with AdvIM mod, I don't know anything about AdvIM mod.  This mod however is pretty much stand-alone so I don't think there would be any conflicts.  All I have really done is take the original INBOX and OUTBOX code, stripped them down so you can't actually interact with the IMs and them put them both on the same page.  Then created a dropdown list so you can select which member to view.  That should work regardless of what mods you have made to the original INBOX and OUTBOX.  Best I can say at this point is if you are interested, intall it and check it out.

It works well for 1.5.1, but IM,s in the Backup / Archiv Folder arent shown..

I hope you can make a little addon..

Dem0n, I think the point that surfy was trying to make was that exact question was asked and answered just the day before you asked it and it was only like two posts before yours...  No harm.

well, no i didn't read i posted when i read about the mod description, anyways i downloaded this mod and it has no instructions.. is there anyway i can get instructions to install this mod correctly?

Post by: Jack.R.Abbit on April 23, 2003, 11:10:44 PM
If you downloaded it then I will assume you are going to either install it by hand or with BoardMod raher than via PackMan.  While I don't officially support BoardMod installs it will work just the same if you know what to do.  This thread gives a lot of info for running BoardMod: http://www.yabbse.org/community/index.php?board=134;action=display;threadid=4653
If you are installing by hand... well then the instructions are "Open the mod file and install it by hand"

On the other side of it, it is packaged as a YaBBpak which will pretty much install itself (almost) via the Package Manager (PackMan) in the Admin section of your board.

I don't include instructions *in* the mod because the instructions are all the same for any mod if you understand the concept of a mod.

Can you turn it off?  I've got several admins on my board and I don't really care to be sharing my IMs with all of them.

turn it off?  no.   an admin is an admin is an admin.  its just an admin link.  its either there or its not.  you would have to uninstall the mod to turn it off.

I installed it as part of that mega-mod or whatever.  I guess I need to do the reverse of the mod posted earlier in this thread?

Oh.. I don't endorse the Super-Mod.  If you installed it then you are on your own.  I wil not support the Super-Mod since I am not the one that assembled that package.  Even though my mod is included, it is just not that simple.  To be quite honest, I am not sure that you can just "undo" this part from the Super-Mod.  Good luck.

Is it possible that Admins can delete IMs?
Because in my Board the most users donīt do it so my MySQL-DB is full of this.

Post by: Jack.R.Abbit on January 23, 2004, 12:01:47 AM
I'm not sure where I have explained this but this mod was written by request from someone.  Personally I don't think I like this mod but I tohught I might as well release it.  The original request was for teh admin to be able to just view IMs and not actually interact with them.  So to answer your question.. NO.  Sorry.

I dunno where the problem is  ???
I just want to delete some messages which are really old and nobody reads them anymore.
The only thing is, that the database is full of this staff  :-\
