    Re: Private Messaging Module Link to this post

    I've committed some more changes yesterday. I moved the request handling from separate method calls to a generic handler.
    The deleting of messages if their attributes have "IsDeleted==1" is completed.
    Also unread messages are highlighted now and you can "read" messages onClick.
    One thing I haven't mananged to fix yet, is the refreshing of the right-sided menu. working on that ;-) I'm thinking about releasing this as a module, soon.
    You can test the latest version on my testsite: Here.
    Credentials are test@aschmann.org:test

    Re: Private Messaging Module Link to this post

    Now, a few months later: I'm still working on it, got a bit caught up working on my guestbook module and the many 2.4 issues with my portal projekt.
    Today I committed a lot of fixes but also some enhancements concerning the whole message handling underneath. If not using nicknames (forums module), you normally don't want name/last name etc. be shown. also there could be a lot of people having the same name...
    fixed:

    • many issues concerning 2.4 compatibility
    • bugs in message handling
    • display bugs

    added:
    • ajaxLoading animation *g*
    • multiple receivers, comma separated
    • names will be displayed: name first letter of lastname (stripped email address, like me@xyz...) to have kind of unique usernames if not in "nickname" mode
    • made the "send message" form available in other modules. This means: You can call the form i.e. via jQuery.load() and give it a user ID as a param. The form will be displayed without "receiver" field, only subject and body. Could be usefull when using it in forums, for example.
    • added a text field in the backend where you can specify the sender address for email notifications sent to the user. If not set, 'noreply@' . $_SERVER[ 'HTTP_HOST' ] will be used.

    I've built this module for my own portal project but if anyone is interested to join the development or in new features, please feel free ;-) Since the module is already submitted as a module-request to ss, I hope this will soon be accepted (waiting like 2 month now)

    Regards,
    Marc

    Hi monkee,

    just get the latest version from svn:
    http://aschmann.org/svn/mod_privatemessage/trunk/privatemessage/

    I've added some documentation when I checked it in with silverstripe as a module - but still no response ;-)
    If you're interested in helping with the code/coding, I can give you svn access. I'd say: Write me a private message, but the forums are still missing that *cough*

    Regards,
    Marc

    Thanks a lot

    have you seen this module back from 2008? http://www.silverstripe.org/private-messaging-module/ It implements basic private messaging... and works... (on 2.3.4)

    Your's sounds more advanced and i start testing it. (you are developing on 2.4 right?)

    Greetings from Switzerland

    Hi Manfred,

    yes, that's the basic idea of the PM module - but since it was not developed any further, I built it all again from scratch
    The module *should* work on 2.4, buit I only tested/developed on rc2 with both, guestbook and privatemessage... But I think I fixed most problems.
    If I find some time, I'll build a new version with full 2.4 support.

    Regards from Germany,
    Marc

    I'll be releasing a full-featured, scalable messaging module very soon if you can wait a month or so. Just doing some alpha testing right now.
